Kevin Hart’s former friend Jonathan “JT” Jackson is suing the star for allegedly fabricating evidence in his famous 2017 extortion case and breaking a subsequent contract.

According to Jackson’s lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday in Los Angeles and obtained by Page Six, he and Hart signed a “meticulously negotiated” settlement agreement in July 2021 that explained Hart would “issue a powerful public statement proclaiming [Jackson’s] innocence” in the comedian’s sex tape scandal.

Jackson, 47, claims Hart was supposed to say that “the incident” cost him “a very valuable friendship,” that he “lost someone close” to him whom he “loved,” that he’s “proud to say that all [the] charges against JT Jackson have been dropped” and that Jackson “is not guilty and had nothing to do with it.”

Instead, in October 2021, Hart took to Instagram to state that Jackson had “been found not guilty” because “those charges have been dropped against him.”
