Kevin Hart wins legal battle over $60 million lawsuit
The legendary comedian, Kevin Hart, who has taken comedy to unseen arenas has been facing a $60 million dollar lawsuit. This lawsuit is based on the s*x tape controversy he has been involved with since 2017. Hot New Hip Hop reported on May 5 that Kevin won an enormous victory in the case. Because the lawsuit was dismissed from the court docket.
The sex tape controversy
Over the years, the comedian has earned a name for himself in his field. And is known to be a hard worker. And generally, a great person to be around. But, the star has been involved in numerous controversies mostly related to his personal life. As previously reported, someone tried to make money out of Kevin Hart by threatening to release a sex tape. The woman in the tape is Montia Sabbag. And she accused the comedian of purposely releasing the tape as a publicity stunt.
The interesting fact why the case got dismissed
The case has been dismissed for a very interesting factual error. A federal judge in California pointed out the case was “taken to the wrong place.” He ruled this because he said everyone involved in the case lives in California. And this makes it a case for the state court system and a case for the federal government.
This lawsuit has caused problems for Kevin in the past. Earlier this year he tried to get the lawsuit dismissed because he claimed that, the person who served them threw all the papers out of his car window in plain sight of the guards on his street.
Additionally, Kevin also won a lawsuit worth $7 million this year. Looks like the artist has a streak of golden luck going on for himself.
