Steve Harvey’s Ex-Wife Sues Him For $60M
Mary…Mary…why you buggin?!
Steve Harvey‘s ex-wife has slapped him with a $60 million lawsuit with a laundry list of accusations including “murdering her soul.”
Via Page Six:
Mary L. Vaughn, claims 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.”
Harvey, 60, wed Vaughn in 1996, two years after splitting from his wife of 14 years, Marcia Harvey. The pair endured a nasty divorce in 2005, two years prior to his third marriage to current wife Majorie Bridges.
Vaughn made several damning accusations against Harvey in the suit, including alleged child endangerment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, kidnapping, torture, breach of contract, conspiracy against rights and “soul murdering.”
TMZ also noted Wednesday the suit was not filed by a lawyer, but a “civil rights activist.”
Vaughn was arrested for contempt of court in 2013 for violating the conditions of a gag order from the divorce. She served 30 days in jail.
She and Harvey share one child together, son Wynton Harvey, 19.
Steve Harvey’s attorney, Brandon Williams, released the following statement:
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.
