High-powered attorney Lisa Bloom said on Twitter Tuesday that she is representing the woman at the center of the scandal, whom she identified as Montia Sabbag.
Bloom said her client was “briefly” involved with the comedian last month, though she did not specify Sabbag’s role in the alleged extortion attempt.
“Although it’s been reported that law enforcement is investigating, we have no evidence of that.
While acknowledging that Sabbag and Hart had an “intimate relationship,” Bloom described her client as a “crime victim.”

Montia has not been contacted,” Bloom said. “Therefore, we are announcing today that we will be going to the authorities immediately to report this matter.”
Bloom said her client had “no idea” who made the recording leaked to TMZ.com.
In contrast to an earlier report that when Hart’s representatives contacted Sebbag, she had requested $420,000 from the actor to take a lie detector test.A demand made through her lawyers, Bloom continued: “Montia and I are not asking for a cent from Kevin Hart. This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any false claims against him. Any reports to the contrary are false,” Bloom said.
Sabbag was identified Tuesday as the woman seen partying with Hart in grainy images and video still-shots published by TMZ.
