Comedian Steve Harvey recently made media headlines for sending a pretty harsh email to his talk show staff asking them to stay away from him on the set.
But it looks like his TV staff aren’t the only people he should be sending that email to, as it was just revealed that his second ex-wife is demanding $60 million from the famous talk show host for “damaging her soul”.
According to TMZ, despite Mary Harvey and Steve’s infamously bitter divorce being finalized over 10 years ago in 2005, Mary’s still feeling a slew of ill-effects from their battle and issued a lawsuit just this past Wednesday. Mary claims that she’s been suicidal and self-medicates to cope with their nasty 2005 divorce.
In the suit, Mary’s main claim is that she’s emotionally and physically destroyed after losing her son, her businesses, and the joy of Mother’s Days.
As she puts it, “All was loss Mary L. Harvey was dead.”
Mary is suing Steve for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
However, what is odd about the whole case (despite them divorcing over 10 years ago) is that the document was not filed by an official lawyer, but rather a woman who refers to herself as Mary’s “civil rights activist.”
Steve’s attorney Brandon Williams told TMZ, “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.”
