Why Was Steve Harvey’s Ex-Wife Sent to Jail Right Before Christmas?

By  |  347 Comments


When you’re a respected, famous and wealthy comedian, everyone loves you.  So, when they see someone behind the scenes who doesn’t love you as much as they do, they consider that person to be the enemy.

When does that person get a chance to tell their side of the story, and why would they be so filled with anger after standing by the celebrity for 16 years?

Steve Harvey’s ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge, filed for divorce from Steve back in 2005.  That’s just when Steve started to become the super wealthy mogul that he is today.  He was famous before that date, but not on the level that he is on today.

The two not only parted ways, but seem to have become mortal enemies, all at the expense of their son.  Now, Steve’s wife is in jail for violating a gag ordered that required she not reveal any of his personal information to the media.  Apparently, whatever was happening in their legal wranglings was so messy that it could ruin Steve’s sparkling public image.

“Am I angry? Yes,” Vaughn told Fox Dallas-Fort Worth. “I missed six years of my son’s life and I can’t get those years back.”

Steve’s attorneys are up in arms over a series of Youtube videos that Steve’s ex-wife has released to the public.  They claim that the content is misleading and defamatory.

Here is part of the statement released by Steve’s legal team, which sounds like something out of Harvard Law School:

Please be advised that the Law Offices of Bobbie Edmonds represents. Mr. Steve Harvey, in the legal matter which has arisen from another episode of YouTube releases, which contain false, misleading, derogatory, defamatory, disparaging and malicious information about Mr. Harvey, his wife, and children by his ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge. (current married name) and formerly known as Mary L. Harvey, individually, and through her agent, representative and co-conspirator, Essie Berry aka EssieRerunBerry aka Essie Rerun Berry! aka Essie Nickerson aka Essie Jackson aka Essie Alexander. We filed another Motion for Contempt and Enforcement against Mary Vaughn Woolridge for the recent social media smear campaign and slanderous 2008 child abuse allegations against Mr.Harvey, among other violations of the prior gag order and permanent injunctions issued in 2008, 2011 and early 2013.

Steve’s wife is set to be released from jail on January 17th, long after Christmas is over.   It appears that, whatever happened in this relationship, Steve’s ex-wife hasn’t healed.  She also seems to be in additional pain over the loss of her son.  No one wants to believe that Steve would be the cause of such pain, but you have to wonder if his attorneys have to be so hard on her.

What do you think?  Should she be heard out or is she getting what she deserves?

    Steve Harvey has moved on with his life, and the ex needs to do likewise. The ex appears to have remarried, so she needs to let go of whatever happened in her marriage to Steve. It’s over and done with. Who cares about either side of the story. Some things are better left private, and not aired out in public. She violated a court order, and has to pay the consequences just like anyone else.

      Did you know that he recently had a child abuse case dismissed against him and that this may have been the case that she was forbidden to talk about??.If it wasn’t true Steve should have been happy to be vindicated and have his reputation restored and shouldn’t cared who knew about it instead his ex wife was told not to talk.There is no decent mother on this earth that is going to be quiet and do nothing if she knows her child has been harmed in any way abused or otherwise please google this case and read it for yourself.

    This has nothing to do with being a celebrity and everything to do with disrespect for the law.
    She was sent to jail because she is hard headed and thinks she is above the law.
    If she was a child or mentally challenged, then there would be room for sympathy.
    She is a adult and knew exactly what the rules and law stated, and chose to break them out of spite and anger.
    Hopefully they both can work things out like adults.
    Merry Christmas.

      Go to hell!!! I hope you ain’t my brother Chuck posting on here like this.. Anytime there’s a GAG-Order yo ass better believe there’s a F*kn dead-cat on the line, just like F*got-azz booty lickin Bishop Eddie Long.. Something is not right for this women to be so damn angry.
      The drama in Steve Harvey’s X-marriage showed up at the Soul-Train Awards Event before everything ever went public. I remember, I’ll never forget that show.. Mary was extremely angry on that stage, so I wanna know what’s really going on!!! I wanna hear her side and I be damn if she doesn’t have a f*kn RIGHT to it.. and every clueless bimbo on here talking about she needs to just move-on, what if yo azz was standing in her shoes. God said EVERYTHING IN THE DARK SHALL COME TO THE LIGHT, so plezzz allow it to be so… Tell it all Mary / Bust his black-azz OUT to the whole world!!!

        Wow, Diana, you sound like you ARE Mary. Let your ish and Mary’s ish GO! God also said Vengence is mine. Jesus said He who is without sin throw the first stone. So let it go and let God lead you out of the place you are in or at least was a visting via VIP when you wrote that horrid response.

        No matter what, it’s THEIR business. He already acknowledges he was no angel. Has pretty much admitted to multiple infidelities and that he should have been no woman’s husband during a lot of his life. He has admitted without itemizing that he has done wrong and is not perfect. Please know, HE cannot heal her. HE is not going back to her. So SHE has to find a way that will not have her breaking laws and damaging her own character to express herself (God & therapy) and find her healing. AND be careful who you allow to represent you. Mary could be totally innocent and said nothing but this Berry person put her out there. Maybe she was using this recording of whatever is out there in U-tube land as private therapy and Berry put it on u-tube without her permission. I don’t know. We don’t know.

        I don’t know Steve and I don’t know Mary but I pray for them both as well as all of you for the very best to come your way. YES, move on. That’s LIFE. You move on from hurt, grief and even success’for the next success or failure. But you have to MOVE. Even your body. Move it, use it for good or lose it. Same for your sanity. Peace and Blessing to you all.

        Dianna, you like drama I’m pretty sure. I bet you watch every reality show on TV. Get a life of your own. Your bitterness and “need to know” is very condemning of yourself- somebody got you still reeling from some deep hurt and you want to play it out through Steve Harvey. You don’t need to know nothing. You and all like you, who claim to have an interest in justice wouldn’t know justice if it reared up and bit you. Your brand of justice is to get Steve at all cost- even if it means further destroying lives in the process: the children are not a priority for you! What does your husband or boyfriend think of your meddling ways? That’s right, you probably don’t have one. And if you do, you won’t for long, because you have been exposed. Exposed for your vindictive ways. Get it together, Dianna. You, like Steve’s ex, need to try to figure out what you really want in life and try to achieve it on your own merit; not as a voyeur of Steve’s.

      Chuck the case was Steve did something some parents have forgotten about which was dicipline his son and the son got made and the mother being bitter went to the police and even after he was vendicated by the courts she wasn’t happy about it! If it were true then he would be in jail. She needs to move on, get a job, and build a life for herself! All she is doing is making sure she doesn’t have a future relationship because what man is going to want to get involved with that mess.

    I think that Steve Harvey maybe a wolf in sheeps clothing pretending to be the perfect husband and father.I was reading last week that a case of child abuse was dismissed against him .his ex-wife alledges that he beat his son real bad because of something dealing with his grades and it was reported that the child had problems urinating as a result of the beating.Now perhaps this is what she was not supposed too talk about and she did because no one had heard about this at least I hadn’t until last week.But what ever Steve Harvey is protraying himself to be in the publics eye when in fact he maybe something diffrent will surface sooner or later but it just seems liket every thing that this woman is saying or want to say some how gets swept under the rug or kept quiet she’s call a lier a scorn woman and she in turn has a muzzle on her mouth and forbidden to speak I say if this beating took place than his son should speak up for himself I’m thinking it’s his son Quentin and Steve seems to be a no non-sense father one who will double down if he feels you are not putting your best foot forward but abusing your child is a whole diffrent story and obvious it had some truth in order for the accusation to get to court

      Steve Harvey has been heard on the radio bragging about how he beat his ex wife out what was due to her. I have a Big problem with him wanting to take the son away from his mother, and kind of mother would want to rake another womans child like the new neew did? He has gotton too big for his own good!

        December 23, 2013 at 9:04 pm

        No decent woman or mother should take part or pleasure in denying another woman rights to her own child.Steve Harvey’s current wife should encourage him to let his ex-wife be a part of her son’s life if its not detrimenatl but definitley not out of spite after all he’s always saying that fathers should step up to the plate and be in their son’s and daughter’s lives how much more so for a mother to play her roll in her child’s life.

      Steve Harvey is nothing more than a fake man who is hiding something or many things. He has a gag order in place because he doesn’t want his reputation hurt because then everyone would see the fake and phony person he truly is. He talks about himself like he is the greatest thing on planet earth. His morning talk show is pure garbage.

        I totally agree Steve Harvey is hiding the real Steve Harvey behind T.V and Radio I am a Mother and if my child was abused by anyone I wouldn’t keep quiet I would rather be in jail if it meant the police and courts knew about it.And if this is true then his Son Quentin should stand up and tell the truth be the man that Steve Harvey is supposedly teaching him to be and no real father will teach his son to lie in order to save his fathers reputation this case had enough merit to go too court and once again Steve Harvey came out smelling like a Rose.

    When you go to Court, and a Gag Order is issued, you cannot reveal anything that happened, or else you will be in violations of the agreement, somewhere during the Hearing or Trial, this order were explained to her, and attested with her signature. This means that the Gag Order revealing anything of the Trial will never come out. In this agreement she agreed to something of valued, and nothing can be revealed to the Media. My advice would be to read closely, all documents that pertains to the Court, involving your Case.

      I am sorry but if the hearing was due to the child abuse case regarding his son that was filed against Steve Harvey gag or no gag then send me to jail I would not stand by quietly knowing my child was abused by my Ex or anyone else and not talk about it many people didn’t know this until it made news last week although it was dismissed and I guess that was her punishment for talking about it but Steve Harvey didn’t want the public and his fans knowing this sometimes people are not what others preceive them to be.Google the article.

She should have been sentenced to 3 years in prison without parole. And you wonder why some famous Blackmen do not marry Black American Women….M. Jordan did the right thing…..

It was proven what a piece of shit he is in the early stages of the divorce – that’s why the gag order was placed on her. Now doesn’t that sound underhanded and dirty to you???

    Weather Steve is hiding something or not, is totally irrelevant as far as this situation goes. Why? Becuase EVERYBODY got some form of dirt that they may not want revealed. The bottom line was that the ex wife was giving a court order to shut the hell up, and out of her anger, bitterness, and stubborn vindictiveness, she disobeyed the court order in an effort to bring drama to Steve Harvey’s life! And the only reason she couldn’t get away with the B.S, is becuase unlike most victims of the man haters club, Steve has enough bread to hire top notch lawyers! I wish that every man being persecuted by some angry slut had the resources that Steve has to put these heffers in jail as well!

    If a gag order was implemented, that means he has something to hide. Gag orders are issued to keep people quite. If what she saying false, then he should be able to prove it. There is some dirty laundry in the hamper and Steve doesn’t want it to come out! He knows it could possibly end his career. If he is innocent of wrong doing, he has nothing to be afraid of!

    Here we go again. Just the other day we were informed about allegations of child abuse, now this. I want to know one thing, what is the motive? Mr Harvey made a statement saying he would never talk bad about his ex and to my knowledge he hasn’t. Nevertheless, here we are again with a smoke cloud full of drama. My dad always said, “if you look for a snake hard enough, you’ll find one”! I’m more interested in seeing and hearing about people doing well. Everyone of us who responds and reads these blogs have some level of education. Perhaps we should take that into consideration and sweep in front of our own front door…Listen, if you follow mess, you will soon become messing.

    The man is truly striving to make a difference. I’m beginning to understand why many black men who want to make a difference in the lives of our youth are reluctant to do so. The more Mr Harvey strives to empower our young brothers the more he’s scrutinized.

    That’s ok Mr Harvey they did the same to Jesus, just keep praying. Let the truth be told, this whole ordeal is irrelevant to who you are and what you mean to so many people of all nationalities…

    Micheal,Beverly,Maurice and Larry,

    You got it…she had all her say in court with her lawyers. She agreed to the terms and money and the child being with Steve case closed. Do you know how hard it is to have a child removed from his mother who is of age to speak for himself its not like he is a baby or toddler. Therapists your right counseling could help and she should use some of the money to get some. As therapists please reread Maurice comment that needs to be addressed on a national stage like Oprah. Simply, decent men paying child support who are abused by the courts when it comes to getting visitation with their children. If men don’t pay support and they should they go to jail if the women refuse to cooperate the men continue to pay fighting for their right to visit. Maybe this fact contributes to so many in our community unable to commit or build families because we perpetuate the brokenness while the courts get rich again. As for you Marvin and Beverly stop hating..everybody has skeletons!

    Both of these individuals are total butt holes. I have always said that there is no reason at all anyone should ever hit a child. Steve should also be in jail. Mary has a gag order. She did not abide by the rules. Let her sit in jail until January 17th. It is always something with these 2. They both are very disturbed individuals. It will never end. Do not be surprised when Steve or Mary becomes missing. Mary is a quiet kind of crazy and Steve is crazy in plain sight. It is not over. Something terrible is going to happen. Just wait for it.

    Steves ex is a dayum batshit crazy loon and a liar. She lied on Steve and said he left her broke..LIE. He gave her money and property. She said Steve of abandoning the child. LIE. He was out of town on business and put her son on a plane and sent him to Steve. She kept violating gag rules and disrespecting judges so she got her crazy azz tossed in jail a few times. The judge gave custody to Steve because he is SANE and was ddemed as the better parentm He was right to leave her crazy azz. She and Wades ex Siovaughn should start a BITTER CAUSE WE AINT BALLIN ON OUR RICH EX HUSBANDS MONEY NO MO’CLUB”, invite a bunch of other bitter ex wives and all of them either keep wallowing i self pity or pull themselves together and get a lifr and get their exes dont want them any more.

    They didnt have to send her to jail for Christmas. Thats grimy.

    Steve is and always has been a grimy person. Thats why he and bernie mac fell out.

    And yes, steve the faux righteous and his attorneys tricked his ex initially in their divorce. (Grimy). It eventually got aired out. she went back to court but it wasn’t the same as getting it done right the first time.

    Real men don’t need to stomp on their children’s mother. This new breed of womenscorned acting men (deion, usher, dwade etc) is repulsive. There are a lot of black men with money who respect their children’s mothers without letting them take advantage. And not nare a black mother on here should be co-signing this mess. Esp since these mothers were not considered abusive — just conveniently crazy at divorce.

    No worries tho. Steve and ‘nem will get his. Nobody escapes their dues.

      December 26, 2013 at 3:44 am

      Ms. Sevlte, it is wrong for you to paint all men that have issues with their baby mama’s with the same nasty brush. All situations are different. Usher, Deion and Wade do not have stories like this guy Harvey. Ive followed those guys situations and those women get what they had coming. All 3 of their baby mothers were doing very foul things and was trying to use the children as pawns, turning the kids against their father and all. Its just like the typical ghetto or broke mother, the only difference is these guys got doe, so they balance things out better in the courtroom where the average guy can not…

      By the way, because you have a child by someone doesnt mean you can get away with murder. Men have levels and some lines your not gonna cross, at least any real man. Most Women have many lines that they at time will create
      simply to test Men or attempt to push their buttons. Making something outta nothing to force a beef because of something else they are angry about or they’ve been carrying around for a while. No man wants a bad relationship with his baby mother, no matter how bad, stupid, or annoying she maybe. Its just not smart, its easier to be on one page when it comes to the children. But they never see it that way. Its what ever they want, and when they want it, and it doesnt matter who loses out because of it, even the child. They always talk that Im a “great mother” stuff but in reality based on actions, say different.

      As for Steve Harvey, he is a certified piece of crap. Hes been playing people forever and selling out for the doe, look at how he fronts and carry on at the Christian Events (awards and Honer shows.) Every showing he does the same thing, fake tears, the God is great stories performance, the whole crocodile tear, hand shivering etc. (Im sooooooo in the spirit of The Lord act.) Then he pacifies our women for ratings on his shows and his book sales, he knows that to get the average female support all you have to do is agree with them or tell them everything they want to, or would like to hear. Grab a subject and tap dance around that. It works like a charm… Phooweeee… Hes full of mess!!! He got a stand up picking at, talking bad about, and making fools of Christians laughing with a smile talking about, its all jokes. Huum.. Bernie stopped messing with him, Cedric seem to have also distanced himself from him and so did Hugley. Why? They did a Comedy Tour for months which spawned a DVD also (The Kings Of Comedy), so why is it none of these guys are close. None of them mention him, they havent been on any of his shows and when people ask Hugley he never goes the positive direction speaking about him. Theres a bitterness around Harvey for something… Seems to me that lately its all about getting paid in every way and dont care who he uses, burns, hurts, takes advantage of, like his Ex-Wife. She helped him write his 1st book, I’d bet a million dollars her name isn’t on the credits or publishing.

        You have a very disturbing view of black women. Your comment about not using the same brush is an oxymoron isn’t it? Didn’t you just use the same brush to paint all black women?

        Also, don’t think it’s only black women who use their children as pawns – other races do the same thing. By the way, does it make these other races ‘ghetto’?

        Your ignorance makes your entire argument moot.

    @devon …steve did do her dirty initially in the divorce. She did not get anything near a fair settlement. This was proven. He got shamed in public and then tried to clean it up. he shouldn’t have tried to run game to begin with. Thats not Christlike.same thing happened with him and bernie mac. He’s backroom shiesty. Again he lacks integrity and only finds it when it makes him look good in public. They call that frauding.

    For Steve Harvey law firm to fight so hard to keep this womans mouth shut really makes me wonder what is it that Steve Harvey is guilty of in reality. You have to understand also that this firm is making money off of Steve Harvey and they don’t want his ex-wife messing the flow of their mighty dollars up. I never thought for once that Steve Harvey is this angel. Looks are deceiving. He can be one way in the public eye but another behind closed doors. Just maybe he is abusive, it shouldn’t be shocking because this happens all the time in life.

    If she was paid to keep her mouth shut she should do it! If she knowingly violated the terms of the agreement she should be incarcerated! Black women know that the white law is on their side when it comes to them fighting Black men.Many of them have caused untold harm to Black men, and often over trivial stuff by calling the police on them. The Black man is not your enemy, Black woman. Kudos to Mr. Harvey for having the means to fight an obviously bitter, mean, frustrated and evil woman. I wish more Brothers had the wherewithall to fight this vicious, unfair white court system that is incarcerating us at record rates.

    Hold UP! The court is not a solution to family problems, they are stuck on going by the book depending on who it is. I have not heard any of you Bible Toters say, we should pray for both of them. We should be guided by this book (The Word Of God) The verdict will be read one day by the righteous judge and He is going to hand down a sentence that no man can appeal. My heart goes out to both of them and their child. You cannot hurt a mother and think that the pain is not felt by the child, after all the closest bond in the African-American culture is between the mother and child. Pain and hurt can cause one to do unbelievable things, especially when you feel that you have nothing to lose but your mind. I feel that we all should make our own decision about the outcome of our legal battle and not allow the attorney to decide what should happen. It’s not the attorney’s child that’s being hurt.Pray! Stop the gossip. If Steve has done wrong and God has forgiven him, he should not worry about what people learn about his past, real people will judge him according to who he is today. And don’t think that because Steve has fame and money that such means happiness and “I could care less” As the old folks used to say,” It will all come out in the wash” And you know what, Only God can wash the dirt away. So let God do his job, He does it well.

      There is something untoward about the whole handling of this case. Why is there a GAG on her in the first place? WHY is she being denied her constitutional rights? He can speak – BUT – she can’t? There is something wrong here.

      That gag order needs to be lifted ASAP. What does he have to hide??

    If there was “nothing to hide” why was there a gag order in place?
    Yes, there are “three sides to every story, his, hers and “the truth.”

    I beleive that his youngest Son Quentin would be the child in question as too wheather he was abused by Steve Harvey.I have seen this young man on his show several times and he seems too be smart and intelligent he’s the one that can put this hole thing to rest in regards to abuse my concern is wheather he might have been told to say something diffrent in court to spare Steve Harvey’s career and reputation after all Steve is the one who is providing him the good things in life something his mother can’t do financially in other words a sweet bribe but when a gag order is issued it’s more or less something that the parties that are involved don’t want others to know so Steve Harvey definitley did not want the public knowing about and wheather it was true or not the accuzation will always be there

    What I think is that with 17 years, it just cannot all be her fault? And, you are comfortable with your children’s mother being in jail–really???!!?? No matter how polished that Harvey image is now, something is not right about this story? Also, as a professed Christian, why would you (Bother Steve) let your wife, the mother of your children go out this way, where is grace brother? Whatever you are NOW is not a byproduct of the new and beautiful wife, but the old and faithful (who is also nice looking) one who went through the tough and dark times, made sacrifices for you, and put up with who knows what and maybe your engaging wife number 2 to be the mogul you are today. As for the ex-Mrs. Harvey, it is apparent that there are some deep hurts inflicted in your marriage but you have to find a place and a way to forgive so that you can move on with your life victoriously. Whatever you feel he owes you, trust God to redeem it. You two know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and although fancy lawyers can cover a multitude of sin, at the end of the day, the truth will stand. Now, I don’t know where the bulk of the blame lies but as a married person of 29 years, I know it takes two to tangle. So, I say you TWO need to work this out and be fair. “God don’t like ugly…and he ain’t that crazy about cute.”

    I believe Steve Harvey’s ex-wife has a lot to say but not the money to protect her right to say it. Steve Harvey has the means to pay lawyers to keep her quiet. I also believe Steve Harvey’s ex- wife and current wife have had encounters in the past, now the roles are reversed. I am certainly not a fan of Steve Harvey. I was done with him when he took Sharon Carson’s book, “Act Like A Lady, Think Like a Man”, revised it and presented it as his.

    NEVER heard of the lady… But we do know Harvey works hard to get where he’s gotten and there always seems go be a crabbarrel aspect to these celebrity relations particularly from the spouses without the talent… Last we heard from this woman was Steve Harvey left her penniless, She was losing not one but three homes, that he was a deadbeat dad the demon is hellbent on de-faming the man and dragging him down to the depths of h.e.l.l. with her… Only later to find out her settlement left her pretty well off… Now here the divorce-cheer collaborators are at it AGAIN, not scrutinizing her credibility, but rooting “spousal victory ” thru litigation… yaay.

    Another disgraceful spectator divorce episode was the Juanita Jordan divorce, Where the “judge ” of the case marries the ex-Michael Jordan…Now that was ratchet

    Bottom line, there personal business is their business and no one else’s. With a celebrity divorce, one would have gotten a gag order too to keep my privacy. If she didn’t get paid or a settlement on future income if she felt entitled to it, that is her legal teams fault not Steve Harvey’s. They divorced now and she agreed to a gag order. She needs to chill and obey the law.

      Seems alot of people have selective or short memories… Not to long ago the same ex-mrs Harvey made media noise about spousal support, only to find out she was well off 10x times the average divorced woman…. Now, you add a couple of TV shows to the picture., Here comes the ex w/complete disrespect
      to her current husband & marriage…

    The mere fact that Steve Harvey wanted a gag order speaks volumes about his questionable character.After reviewing the comments of some of you, it is no wonder that the black family and community has deteriorated into nothing more than divorces and illegitimate children. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Steve Harvey is a big hypocrite and has the unmitigated audacity to advise others on family/relationship matters. This is not about a woman using a child to (f) a man, as one guy commented. This is about one man that walked out on his family and had the money to destroy the woman who stood by his side while he climbed that ladder. Marriage is for better or worse and Steve is just a jerk…

    Ummm, Beverly McC – that’s not the point. This Steve Harvey fool is not God! Why can’t she tell her side of the story?? By what legal and moral right does he have to put a gag order on her? How is this even legal? What does he have to hide??

    Let her story be TOLD. This is ridiculous that people think she should bow down and shut up because this Steve Harvey fool has money. Wow, what happened to her constitutional rights??

    Not too mention how cruel they are being to her – she had to sit in jail over the Christmas holidays for violating her constitutional rights?

    Any one knows who this poor woman can turn to??

      @cw …, LOL gag orders are common among celebrity divorces… Mostlikely she signed the gag-order with millions of dollar$ to boot … The exes runs through the $money & finds excuses via media to make noise…

    @ ms svelte – taking your comment into consideration, its time for her to move on. Steve is married to another, they seem to be happy and between his radio show talk show and other ventures he’s a success. Time for her to move on a get a life.

    It doesn’t take rocket scientist to know if Steve was another poor man on the street, this issue will probable would NOT come out again. In any broken relationship, both sides have to be hurt for something. So, please woman, for your peaceful, prosperous, & heaalthy 2014 sake, i will humbly advise you to move on. Or better yet, maybe both should resolve the issue on the JERRY SPINGER’S SHOW, Perhaps that’s all she’s asking for. Sorry, not trying to be funny, but please let peace rain.

      I Agree, no one really knows whats really the truth about Steve Harvey and his ex-wife….People do lie…just because they are hurt and bitter, they will lie just to bring hurt and pain to the life of the spouse that they feel dumped them….when there is a divorce, men and women will lie on each other just because they are hurt and want to bring hurt to each other…If Steve Harvey did such abusive things to his son, he should be ashamed of himself…but who knows how much of Steve’s life has changed, everyone can change…and remember we do not live with Steve in his household nor did we live with him in his household when he was married to his ex-wife…not saying Steve is an angel…we all know he have done some dirty and wrong things to lots of people probably including his ex-wife….but none of us has been perfect either…we also have done some underminded things to people…we have all made mistakes in life, some that we regret…

      If Steve abused his son, their is a Father in heaven who have seen him do this….and Heavenly Father will take revenge like He said He would….also there is a phrase called Repent….and Forgiveness, which I hope Steve has done if he has done such a thing to his son. and we all must forgive him for what he has done and not try and bash him…all of you that are bashing him on your comments, need to ask for forgiveness also..because none of us really know the real story, just what the ex-wife is saying…and we all know that sometimes a gag order needs to be in place because lies will ruin a reputation also..not only the truth…so because none of us was there when all of this was taking place, we need to just but out of the business…and let Steve Harvey be….like I said, for all of the angry bashing on your comments about and toward Steve, we need to ask Heavenly Father to forgive us….if we don’t forgive, then Heavenly Father will not forgive us of the wrong we have done, nor forgive us for all the wrong and bad things we have said about others…..we all have some skeletons in our closet that we don’t want anyone to know about, we are just not in the public eye the way Steve Harvey is…….Lets pray for them instead….
