Hart’s former friend, JT Jackson, stood accused of attempting to extort the comedian with a copy of a sex tape.
It’s unclear which is worse: a friend or a lover scorned. Kevin Hart may have been able to repair his marriage after cheating on his then-pregnant wife Eniko Parrish, but his friendship with JT Jackson is dead and buried. Last year, Jackson was facing upwards of four years in prison after Hart accused him of extortion. According to reports, Jackson allegedly sent Hart a text that stated if he didn’t receive millions from the comedian, he would release his sex tape. Jackson has surfaced with his lawyer who told Comedy Hype that the accusations made against his client are fabricated.

Today I’m sharing hard evidence that I, JT Jackson was NEVER involved in any plot to extort Kevin Hart for $5 million dollars on Instagram or any other method for that matter. I was never involved in any of this bullshit.😏 Hard evidence proving as such attached below.😉 Each picture has an explanation. Remember when TMZ posted the bullshit you see in this pic? Saying “It’s True at one point Jackson made a money demand on Kevin’s Instagram account”.🤦🏾♂️ My goodness, TMZ flat out lied and slandered my name and character right here. My lawyer even contacted TMZ to ask them to take it down because it wasn’t true. TMZ refused and left it up.
“This started out as a man who cheated on his pregnant wife on her birthday weekend in Vegas,” said attorney Jacob Glucksman. “That’s how this story was run for a long time and Kevin’s team was successful in shifting that narrative to Kevin being the victim of something that happened in Las Vegas.” He later added, “What Kevin Hart did in Las Vegas, that was a bad move on his part. That was a mistake on his part. But, what happened was, was that Kevin got together a team of very powerful and well-known attorneys, together with his agents, managers, what have you, and they basically concocted a story to make Kevin look like the victim in the case.”
Back in September 2019, it was reported that the charges against Jackson were dropped due to insufficient evidence. “Kevin Hart, I wish him well. He made a mistake that weekend,” said Glucksman. “But for him to make himself a victim of a crime that never happened, that’s not okay. I think when it boils down to it, we’re going to have twelve people sitting in a jury box that [are] going to agree with that evidence.”
Jackson still faces charges of two felony counts of unauthorized use of personal identifying information and one felony count of attempted concealing and selling of stolen property. Watch Jackson’s interview with his attorney below.

Yellow Highlight: My Dope Ass Lawyer Blue Highlight: DA Investigator Shit Bag This is just one of THOUSANDS of lies she’s fed to the court and within the Statement Of Probable Cause when they kicked in our door with guns drawn on my wife and I.
