Steve Harvey Responds To Ex Wife’s Lawsuit
Mr. Harvey vehemently denies any allegations set forth in the lawsuit. The Complaint is meritless, frivolous and the allegations are completely false. We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the Complaint.
As previously reported, Mary filed a lawsuit against the comedian turned talk show host, claiming she suffered from “prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering,” resulting in a suicide attempt “by self-medicating [in] an effort to stop the pain.”
She’s suing for Steve for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The oddly filed lawsuit reportedly was not filed by a lawyer, but by a woman who claims to be her civil right’s activist.
Steve and Mary were married from 1996–2005. At the time of the marriage, he was starring in the WB sitcom “The Steve Harvey Show,” which aired until 2002. The couple had a son, Wynston in 1997 and ended their marriage in 2005, citing “irreconcilable differences”. Steve has yet to respond to the lawsuit.
