Kevin Hart had the reincarnation of Judas Iscariot right at his dinner table and was completely unaware. His best bud, Jonathan Todd Jackson, has been charged with attempted extortion. Some men really need to stop letting their friends be the Steven Spielberg of their sex tapes. It almost led to Kevin’s downfall but you can’t fall far when you’re already at the bottom of the sell-out pile making millions from mediocre movies as the comic relief. How many times can one person play the same midget buffoon character looking for some kind of come up. He’s either that or a cop alongside a more serious character, mostly The Rock, for a maximum-middle brow juxtaposition effect. But for some reason, the world still cares about all of the misfortune this man is suffering from after his infidelity.
Jonathan Todd Jackson, also known as Action Jackson, was charged on Wednesday with trying to coerce Kevin Hart into paying an undisclosed sum for a video allegedly showing the comedian with a woman in Las Vegas.
According to a press release issued by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office (LADA), Jackson was charged with one count of both attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter. Jackson allegedly videotaped Hart with a woman and then tried selling the recording to multiple celebrity news websites.
How he was caught is interesting if you’re into stories about betrayal and men whose height requires them to use their child’s booster seats for cheating on their significant others. Even more interesting is Kevin’s ability to maintain an erection with another male in the room holding a camera and giving direction. Hart is just a man of many talents outside of telling jokes. He should try out for pornstar when the Hollywood roles start slowing up.
