Kevin Hart and his bodyguards have reportedly been slapped with a lawsuit after a woman claims she was violently thrown to the ground in New York City in Jan. 2019, TMZ reports. The woman claims the interaction left her with a fractured face.
According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, Carmen Marrero claims she was walking down a New York City sidewalk when Kevin and his security team came bustling out of the building. Kevin was reportedly inside the building for a screening of his movie, The Upside.
As she was crossing the street, Hart’s bodyguards allegedly began shoving a crowd of people out of the comedian’s path. Marrero was allegedly thrown to the ground, which caused her to fracture her face.
Marrero is suing Hart, his production company, and SAG-AFTRA for assault and battery for an undisclosed amount of money. Kevin Hart has not spoken on the new lawsuit at this time.
