Kevin Hart Struggling Amid Cheating Scandal, Other Woman Hires Attorney Lisa Bloom
We’ve got to admit that it was pretty shocking and disappointing to see Kevin Hart admit to cheating on his pregnant wife, Eniko Parrish. So far, they’ve put up a united front but sources claim he’s having a hard time with everything.
“Kevin’s not doing too well,” a source told People. “He’s really embarrassed that all of his personal business is out there for everyone to see… It obviously hasn’t been an easy week for him or Eniko and having it come out in public has affected their marriage, but she is determined to stand by him. He also has a lot of friends defending him, so he has a lot of support.”
His admission came in the form of a public video apology to his wife and children on Instagram in response to, what he claimed, was another woman trying to seek “financial gain” by threatening to release a video of them engaging in “sexually provocative” behavior.
Meanwhile, the other woman has been named and, surprise, surprise – she’s hired a high-powered lawyer. Montia Sabbag, a 27-year-old stripper from Long Beach, CA, is the woman accused of trying to blackmail Hart and she’s now being represented by Lisa Bloom.
The lawyer explained that Sabbag “was briefly involved with Kevin Hart a month ago. Since that time, she has been the subject of false, vicious attacks on her character” and “will speak out … about the true facts of this situation, and will announce their next legal move.”
Good grief. Even the FBI was involved according to TMZ and they have stated that they know “the identity of a person who allegedly demanded money to not leak the video” but have not confirmed that it is, indeed, Sabbag.
As for his marriage, Hart and Parrish seem to be trying to work things out. As the source continued to People, “She obviously knows about the cheating allegations. To her, Kevin is a great husband. Eniko is aware that Kevin has been accused of being a ladies’ man. She doesn’t care. He is her husband and he always comes home to her.”
The couple were out for lunch together in Los Angeles on Tuesday and, while they weren’t kissing and hugging, onlookers said they seemed, at the very least, “amicable.”
The 38-year-old comedian is father to daughter Heaven, 12, and son Hendrix, 9, with ex-wife Torrei who, incidentally, claims he cheated on her with Parrish.
