Steve Harvey is going to court with a vengeance against his former wife, Mary. After his ex took to YouTube to throw trash on the comedian’s name, everyone knew it was going to be a battle.
So today (Feb. 7), the two sides will square off in a Collins County, Texas court room to hear the comedian/author/radio host’s request for sanctions against her for allegedly violating an injunction against talking about the family’s custody case over the Internet.
But that’s not the end of the drama. Marjorie Harvey, the current wife, is considering filing a defamation suit against Mary for the accusations made against her in the videos.
Mary Harvey, the ex, mentioned in the videos that the radio host is also suing him for allegedly preventing him from getting a show with Oprah.
“As I sit and talk and speak right now, there’s a lawsuit that’s been filed against me in Texas, because in Steve’s opinion, I was responsible when Oprah didn’t give him a TV show,” she said. “I’m being sued for that as I sit here on this sofa today.”
Steve Harvey’s attorney, Bobbie Edmonds, didn’t mention any details about the suit, but said the judge has sealed it. However, she did comment via a statement about the now infamous videos Mary Harvey posted to YouTube:
“We are appalled and aware of the videos and the other fabricated documents, which were placed on the internet over the weekend by the ex-wife of Mr. Steve Harvey, which contained false, misleading, derogatory, disparaging, malicious, explicit and slanderous information about Mr. Harvey, his current wife and others.”
