This past wednesday Johnathan Jackson was charged for trying extort money from Kevin Hart. Back in August he wrote a threatening letter, asking for money (undisclosed amount) in exchange of not releasing a video that he secretly recorded of Hart with a woman in Las Vegas. After he failed with Kevin Hart, he then tried to sell to celebrity news websites.
Jackson’s arrest was made on Monday and he is being held in custody with a bail of $100,000. What’s shocking about this story is, Jackson and Hart were actually friends, and he even costarred in Hart’s Think Like A Man Too.
When news broke Hart tweeted “Mind blown…Hurt…at a lost for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment. WOW”
