Kevin Hart is an actor, producer and the highest paid comedian in the world, followed by Jerry Seinfeld. He is also currently facing extortion because of a controversial video released of him with a woman. It’s not looking too good for him since there have been previous rumors of Hart being unfaithful to his fiance, Eniko Parrish.
The person who released the video asked for a few million dollars in return for keeping more evidence hidden. The FBI seems to know who the individual is, but the video is still out there along with a statement from the culprit saying that Hart only began the Texas Hurricane Relief Fund in order to “get ahead” because he knew this footage was about to be exposed.
Regardless of the seriously damaging situation he’s in right now, how much is this popular comedian worth today?
