A man faces charges of attempting to blackmail actor Kevin Hart with a video of Hart that the man secretly recorded in Las Vegas previous year, according to Los Angeles prosecutors.

Even though Kevin Hart has been adamant that he wouldn't succumb to blackmail, he is clearly blown away by the fact that his own friend tried to set him up. Jackson is an actor who appeared in Hart's "Think Like a Man Too", comedy special "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain", and on an episode of "S.W.A.T." on CBS.

According to TMZ, Jackson had been friends with Hart for over 15 years and was a guest at his bachelor party before the comic Wednesday Eniko Parrish.

Cambridge Analytica inquiry to continue after collapse
Cambridge Analytica sought information on Facebook to build psychological profiles on a large portion of the US electorate. However, Cambridge Analytica abused Facebook's system and gathered the data of over 87 million people in total.

Jonathan Todd Jackson, 41, who is known publicly as "JT" and "Action Jackson", is being held on $100,000 bail, according to the Los Angeles District Attorney's office. Sabbag said she was photographed unknowingly and denied that she had been part of an extortion attempt against Hart. "And recently, I didn't". "I am in no way shape or form the middleman".

'And I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did'. I love him to death but him and I are just friends. It's a s-ty moment when you know you're wrong and there [are] no excuses for your wrong behavior. The video below shows the two back in 2010 leaving a restaurant and while Kevin was trying his best to get J.T. into the vehicle to head home, the "professional bowler" just couldn't get enough of the camera. But I'm also not gonna allow a person to have financial gain off my mistakes. "I said I'd rather fess up to my mistakes".

The 38-year-old comedian seemingly addressed the scandal via Twitter on Wednesday, May 2. I gotta do better and I will.
