Kevin Hart has been left "hurt" and in "complete disbelief" after a close friend was charged with extortion.

The Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle actor was stunned to learn Jonathan Todd Jackson, who is known as Action Jackson, had allegedly secretly videotaped him getting close to another woman in Las Vegas last August and then tried selling the footage to news outlets.

According to TMZ, Jackson had been friends with Kevin for over 15 years and was a guest at his bachelor party before the comic wed Eniko Parrish.

He has been charged with attempted extortion and extortion by threatening letter, and if convicted, he could face up to four years in jail.

Last September, Kevin issued a public apology to his family after learning he'd been targeted in the extortion attempt.

The I Bet hitmaker admits she was nervous about having her daughter Sienna because she's "such a tomboy" herself.

She told E! News: "It's been full of so much life and love ... I didn't know what to expect and I'm such a tomboy that I was honestly kind of a little worried or curious about how I would do with a little girl. What I really think is so awesome, there's just something sweet in the air. There's something really sweet about how they are, they're so delicate but she's so tough at the same time. It's been really fun."

Meanwhile, the 32-year-old singer who also has three-year-old son Future from a previous relationship previously revealed she is "blessed" to have her husband Russell Wilson and her children.

Tyga owes nearly one million dollars in back taxes.

The Rack City hitmaker reportedly owes the government US$890,183.87 as he allegedly did not pay taxes between 2011 and 2016.

The State of California Franchise Tax Board said in a notice: "Further interest and fees will accrue at the rate prescribed by law until paid."

It is not the only money woes the 28-year-old rapper has had as of late after his ex-partner Blac Chyna with whom he shares five-year-old King Cairo accused him of not paying child support for their son.
