Kevin Hart, 38, had publicly apologised to his pregnant wife and two children following stills from a steamy video surfacing of the actor and another woman.
The tape in question is at the centre of an FBI extortion probe, with TMZ claiming to reveal the woman involved to be 27-year-old stripper Montia Sabbag.
The publication claims Montia had met Kevin in Las Vegas in August and the duo enjoyed a ‘wild weekend’ together.

TMZ reports that the Grown Ups star and stripper Montia, who is believed to work wherever bookings will take her, had never met prior to meeting in Vegas and haven’t had any encounters since their meeting.
MailOnline have contacted a representative for Kevin Hart.
An image had been released of comedian Kevin resting his head on a woman’s chest and clutching her thigh in the racy clip. Hart can be seen laughing as he gets close to the woman in the intimate photo.
TMZ, which first showed the image, says it is part of a video that also includes two people having sex followed by a naked man getting dressed, which appears to look like Hart.

The star’s alleged extortionist has also spoken out to call the star a liar as the FBI investigate the attempt at a multi-million dollar demand.
The mystery person said: ‘Kevin Hart was privy to me wanting to expose him as I have made countless attempts to expose this information to various blogs, in an attempt to also get paid.’
The FBI is investigating the multi-million dollar extortion attempt on Kevin Hart after he publicly apologized to his pregnant wife and his two children over what he described as a ‘bad error in judgment.’

Law enforcement officials told TMZ that an anonymous person contacted Hart saying they had a video of the comedian and a woman in a sexually provocative situation.
Sources have told the publication that the FBI knows who the woman is that interacted with Kevin and they believe that she is the one making the demands.
However, Montia has denied having anything to do with shooting the video, with her lawyer stating she would sit a lie detector test if Hart pays her a reported fee of $420,000.
It’s reported the FBI also believe that the video was captured by someone who got a hold of the iPhone that the encounter was captured on.
Sorry: The comedian posted a video to Instagram on Saturday in which he apologised to wife Eniko Parrish and said he wasn’t perfect and had recently made poor decisions
Kevin, meanwhile, had publicly apologised to his pregnant wife Eniko Hart, 33, who is expecting the couple’s first child together – a baby boy.
What Kevin Hart said about cheating…
‘I got a good one. I can’t play any games… I call her my rib and I don’t know if people know what that means – it’s from the Bible. A rib is something you can’t live without.
‘You can always try to find something that’s better – a bigger a**, some breasts but that never ends so when you do find something stimulates you on a physical and mental and emotional level at this age, what else do you need?
‘I got a good one. A logical, thinking woman… why risk it? What am I going to throw it all away for? It’s not worth it at all, man.’
Hart is also dad to daughter Heaven and son Hendrix from his first marriage to ex-wife Torrei Hart.
Kevin had posted a video to Instagram on Saturday in which he apologised to Eniko, describing the video as a ‘bad error in judgement’. He said he wasn’t perfect and had recently made poor decision.
He said there were ‘no excuses’ but added that someone was trying to seek financial gain over his mistakes, and he’d rather confess than let that happen.
It has been revealed that part of the tape being investigated by the FBI includes the comedian talking about how he would never cheat on his wife.
In the clip from an earlier interview, Hart says: ‘I got a good one. I can’t play any games… Why risk it? What am I going to throw it all away for?’
Meanwhile, his first wife Torrei has hit out at the acting talent for being a ‘liar’, accusing him of ‘cheating on her for years’ with current wife Eniko.

She and Hart had married in 2003. They announced their separation and filed for divorce in February 2010, with it being finalised the following year in 2011.
However, Torrei was left irked when Kevin’s current wife Eniko had shared a post about her relationship with the star on their wedding anniversary last month. Detailing the time period they had been romantically involved, it read: ‘8 years together. 1 year married. Forever to go!’ she was miffed because she had only split from Kevin six years earlier.’
Torrei and Kevin had only split six years earlier, prompting fans to note this on Eniko’s social media post, with her then hitting back: ‘Their marriage was broken way before I came in the picture. They were separated, living in separate homes. I was never a secret.’
Speaking about cheating previously, Kevin had said: ‘I got a good one. I can’t play any games… I call her my rib… a rib is something you can’t live without’
Torrei, however, has refuted Eniko’s claims and hit back while speaking to Inside Edition: ‘She said we were separated, not living together. We were very much not separated.’
She blamed Hart’s celebrity status on the breakdown of their relationship, claiming he began ‘lying’ to her once he had become famous.
Speaking about her strained relationship with Eniko, Torrei told In Touch Weekly at the end of August that the duo are ‘not speaking’. She added that she and Kevin were ‘still’ on speaking terms.
Kevin had proposed to Eniko (nee Parrish) in 2014. They married two years later in August 2016 in Santa Barbara and first announced news they were expecting a baby together in May earlier this year.
