In other news, Hart released a family-friendly video game in the form of a mobile app called “Gold Ambush with Kevin Hart” on Monday. The free game is available for both Android and iOS. It focuses on two of Hart’s favorite interests, gambling and running. The game features Hart, his wife Eniko Parrish, and his two children, Heaven 12, and Hendrix, 9. It combines “one-touch running and city-building gameplay into an action-packed adventure,” according to an official statement announcing the game. The idea to create characters from real-life family members came from Hart’s children, the statement said.

In other career-related news, in June, Hart released a book titled “I Can’t Make This Up: Life Lessons.” The book is a memoir of Hart’s life, including an upbringing where he stated the odds were stacked against him, with a drug-addicted father and overwhelmingly strict mother. The book currently has 601 reviews with a 4.5 star rating.

In the latest developments in the extortion scandal involving Hart, Montia Sabbag has come forward as the woman in the video allegedly involved in an extortion attempt against Hart. Sabbag appeared Wednesday at a press conference with high-profile attorney Lisa Bloom. Both the lawyer and her client made statements, claiming although she is seen in the video, she was not part of any attempt to extort money from the actor in exchange for the video.
