Kevin Hart Loses Bid to Dismiss $7 Million Legal Battle Over Sex Tape Extortion Aftermath

Kevin Hart’s 2017 cheating scandal cost him a lot: respect from fans, almost his family and a few business deals that didn’t take off because he was allegedly being extorted, and it appears he’s still dealing with the aftermath of it all.

According to The Blast, a judge recently shut down the comedian’s bid to have a $7 million lawsuit— filed by a former business partner dismissed. A court order states that Hart’s former business partner, Stand Up Digital, has shown enough at the point to have their battle continue.

Stand Up Digital claimed they entered into a deal with Hart and his partner, Wayne Brown, to launch a game called “Gold Ambush.” The game was to feature the comedian and members of his family as characters. According to the lawsuit, they claimed to have shelled out over $1.25 million on developing the game, which was set to launch in September 2017. However, the app failed because Hart confessed to having an affair and said he was being extorted over a sex tape, just one month before the app was set to launch.

The company accused Kevin Hart of refusing to communicate with them following his confession and sued for damages in excess of $7.2 million.

In responses, Hart said the company refuses to take responsibility for the failure of the app when it was “released into an app market where the overwhelming majority of gaming apps make insignificant revenue, and the few successful games, such as ‘Game of War,’ have advertising budgets in the tens of millions of dollars,” The Blast quotes the court documents.

Kevin Hart will now have to prove that while he defends himself in court later this year.
