In 2005, Steve Harvey and his ex-wife Mary Harvey had a nasty split which resulted in divorce for the two. Now according to Mary Harvey and court documents she filed, she never fully recovered from their split and the court battles that came from it. Now, she is suing Steve Harvey for $60 million, saying that he ruined "her soul." She allegedly has been suicidal and apparently self-medicates to deal with the fact that the two have been broken up. In her suit, she states, "All was lost, Mary L. Harvey was dead." She also said that she is physically and emotionally destroyed because of losing her son, the joy of Mother's Day with her son, and also the loss of her businesses.
Mary Harvey is suing her ex-husband for torture conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and child endangerment. Steve Harvey's lawyer has issued a statement on behalf of the comedian and game show host, saying, "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."
