JT Jackson is an American actor. He is known for his role in Marlon Wayans’ ‘Naked’. He is also the front man of the band Enation. Aside from acting, he is a professional bowler. His net worth is estimated at $5 million. However, he was recently arrested for extorting money from Kevin Hart, and his arrest was followed by charges of racketeering.
In the fall of 2018, JT Jackson became a national focus after the allegation of extortion against him. It was alleged that he had sent a teaser of an alleged sexcapade to the media. The allegations that were made were that JT had demanded money from Kevin Hart for the recording of the tape.
Fortunately, the charges were dropped, but JT faced two other felony charges in May of 2018. Earlier, it was announced that JT would be out of jail by the Fall of 2019.
Since the release of the teaser, the media has been buzzing about the allegations of extortion. Despite the accusations, JT’s family still claims that he is not involved in the extortion attempt. JT’s family claims that he never asked for a specific amount of money from Kevin, and that he was only trying to make the footage go viral.

As a result, he became a popular figure on social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram. He has also released a video in which he apologizes to his family.
