“Jackson is accused of trying to extort an undisclosed amount of money from Hart between Aug. 25 and Aug. 30, 2017,” a press release from the DA’s office read.
“Jackson allegedly had a videotape of the actor with a woman in Las Vegas and then is accused of trying to sell the recording to numerous celebrity news websites, prosecutors said.”
The alleged liaison, which has reportedly been captured on a five-minute long tape, went down last summer while Hart’s wife Eniko was pregnant with their first son, Kenzo, who was born in November last year.
Hart was forced to publicly admit he cheated on his pregnant wife after the story made headlines.
If convicted of the offences, Jackson could face up to four years in county jail.
It has only emerged today that he was a close member of the Jumanji star’s entourage, with Hart reportedly incredibly upset about the situation.
“Mind blown … Hurt … at a lost (sic) for words and simply in complete disbelief at the moment. WOW,” he cryptically tweeted Wednesday.
