Kevin Hart and his wife Eniko Parrish are expected to host an expensive baby shower up to $118k, following Kevin Hart's recent allegations that a woman tried to extort money from him over a “sexually suggestive” video.

"The Lion King" themed baby shower is expected to take place at the Calamigos Beach Club in Malibu, California, on Oct. 1, TMZ reported.

The baby shower comes days after Hart apologized to his wife and children on Instagram for a "bad error in judgment" and claimed that someone was seeking "financial gain."

"Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be ...I love you all," he wrote on Instagram.

Many of his followers believe that the 38-year-old comedian was admitting to infidelity. The woman who was allegedly in the "suggestive video" came forward on Wednesday to hold a press conference.

"Monica Sabbag, 26, said she was involved with the comedian about a month ago. Her attorney emphasized that her client is not asking the comedian for money.

"This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Any reports to the contrary are false. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal just as Montia is the victim of this criminal," Bloom said.

The woman who allegedly extorted comedian Kevin Hart claims that she is the "victim" at a press conference on Wednesday.

Montia Sabbag and her attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference in Woodland Hills, Calfornia. Sabbag claims that she was "involved" with the comedian about a month ago.

"Since then, my pictures and my name have been released and lies written about me," she said. "I'm not an extortionist, I'm not a stripper. I'm a recording artist and an actress, and I have not broken any laws."

The attorney said that someone allegedly put cameras into Hart's private hotel suite in Las Vegas and took images of them together.

"It is a crime to secretly put a camera in a private place like a hotel room. It is another crime to secretly record people in a private place. It is yet another crime to disseminate those images," Bloom said.

Her attorney emphasized that her client is not asking the comedian for money.

"This is not about money. We are not suing him. We are not making any claims against him. Any reports to the contrary are false. Kevin Hart appears to be the victim of this criminal just as Montia is the victim of this criminal," Bloom said.

The press conference comes days after Hart posted a Instagram video, claiming that an unidentified person was trying to extort him over a “sexually suggestive” video.

Comedian Kevin Hart claimed on Saturday that an unidentified person was trying to extort him over a “sexually suggestive” video.

According to TMZ, there is a video that shows Kevin and another woman at a nightclub and later in bed together. The person allegedly threatened to release the video if he didn't pay her money. The comedian took to Instagram Saturday night to apologize to his wife, Eniko Parrish, and his two children.

"Sending so many apologies to my wife & kids. I gotta do better and I will. I'm not perfect and have never claimed to be ...I love you all," he wrote on Instagram.

In the video, Hart said "I made a bad error in judgment and I put myself in an environment where only bad things can happen and they did."

Hart,38, married his second wife Eniko in August 2016, and the couple is currently expecting their first child together.

That's a wrap..Until next year! 💋 #HARTBEATWEEKEND2017♥️
