: Last week after MediaTakeOut.com reported that Donda West died from complications of tummy tuck and breast augmentation surgery, radio personality Steve Harvey launched into a tirade against us.
But while Steve was talking about our "unethical" behavior, MediaTakeOut.com has learned that his ex-wife was alleging some unethical behavior of his own. In a new lawsuit, Mary Harvey claims that Steve was routinely unfaithful, neglected "some of his children," and was physically and emotionally abusive.
And that’s not all. Mary also claims that Steve and his lawyer concocted a scheme to defraud her out of alimony and support for their son. She claims that Steve's lawyer convinced her not to hire independent representation - and then tricked her into accepting an unusually low divorce settlement. That settlement requires Steve, a multi-millionaire, to pay only $1,000 a month in child support.

MR. HIGHTOWER HOW COULD YOU??!!!!
SERIOUSLY, I HOPE THIS IS NOT TRUE. I WOULD HOPE THAT HE IS A MAN WHO DO RIGHT BY HIS FAMILY.
AND MTO, WHERE IS YOUR STUPID DISCLAIMER?? YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO CALL "FIRST" BEFORE T/M/Z DOES
THIS "FIRST" STUFF IS SOOOOOOO CHILDISH....YOU DON'T WIN A PRIZE, MONEY, OR FAME. IT'S POINTLESS
Ok let's stop the fu@king presses. If she filed in Harris County (where I live in Houston) she is definately getting more than $1000 in child support. The great state of TX don't play that. They go straight by the income. If her child is the only one receiving child support that child is entitled and will get 25% of his income. Too bad we don't have spousal support her but we do have community property and if there is no pre-nup..... 1/2 of all income and property especially if he committed adultery.
Whoa I find this hard to believe the way Steve talks about family on the radio all the time. I lived in TX while they were going through their divorce and it was a quiet one nobody new nothing about it. How does she get child support and he has custody of their son. I find this hard to belive but I do think he should have given her more money than that and some of that property they have in Tx. he has a ranch on alot of land their and it very beautiful. Steve I hope this is not true but these are legal papers in Tx.
Its real hard to believe because if you read the "Divorce Decree" on that website you can tell its a fake. No court doucment is going to state "bread and butter" or put the lawyers address in there as "where ever you may find him" or quote a lawyer saying "put someone else in the mix" and no judge in Harris county will let ONE lawyer represent both damn clients. That is called a conflict of interest.
Get it together MTO and the ones believing that document.
@tiaje EXACTLY!! If his wife agreed to be represented by his lawyer she's a fool. Get your own and have Steve her lawyer fees. If you any part of her claim is true then Steve needs his ass put in place. Not taking care of your kids is one of lowest places a man/woman can go.
Steve's ex wife is absolutely delirious (spell check)!!! She was stupid for not getting her own court representation in the 1st place. Bytch you getting just what you deserve. You see Steve with his new wife and she's cute and you look like a dried up cracked-out prune and you hatin'...that's all this boils down to
I usually go to this site for fun, but I am a fan of Steve Harvey.
@ addorable4u...you are so right. how does she get child support for a child that he raises.his child is in private school on the East Coast.
He was divorced before anyone even knew about it, single, dating and now married for almost a year. when did he do all this damage to her? Did he beat or swindle her memory? No, the smooth sailing she was getting is gone and she is pissed.
Listen to the show sometime, he puts that all out on front street. He talks about how he missed seeing his twins grow up because he was on the road. He talks about how he raised his first wife's son as his own. He has never lied about it.
Like he always says, if people are talking about you then you are doing your job well, it's when they STOP that you have to be worried.
That's messed up. I feel bad for Mary. She was with Steve for like 25 years. But he'll get his because God don't like ugly and Broderick Steve Harvey is FUGLY (fu**ing ugly). His cotton mouth KUNTRY ass ain't even funny. He was the WORST comedian on the Kings of Comedy tour and Cedric made the Steve Harvey show entertaining. His radio show sucks too. His jokes are so damn stupid. I hope Mary gets some justice from that woman beating GO-rilla. He do dress nice though. He showed up to the March on Washington in a fur coat. Good look but someone should have told him it was a MARCH, not a Player's Ball. Haaaaaaaaaa
wow I'm a tab shock how much preaching Steve does on his show. I listen to him just about every morning when I can......
He is always preaching and giving advice about what a real woman is and what a real man is......
I pray this is false I did hear him on the radio blasting Mediatakeout........However if he beats on a woman and mistreat a female he is no better than the dirty no good for nothing men he preaches about! Steve needs a reality check!
I dislike men like him who have power, money and popularity and they think in their sick twisted mind the world owes them something.
Steve walking around like he God or something untouchable because he have all the answers to life problems. If this is true I will no longer be a fan of a man who is fake, phoney and abuse women!
Ugh! I caint stand Steve Harvey! Here's why:
1.) He's so NOT funny
2.) He's so arrogant--so full of himself YUCK!
3.) I can't stand the way he dresses/looks or talks
4.) HE's NOT FUNNY AT ALL and the bogus country acts gets on my last nerve!
It's funny how Steve always has advise for his Strawberry letters but it seems like he can't apply the same advise in his house. I always knew that everything wasn't as it seems with Mr. Harvey. Don't throw stones if you live in a glass house!!
Thank you tiaje! you can clearly tell this is not an authentic court document. Besides, she is a grown woman, she bears some responsibility of finding out what she can get! After years of hearing about the amounts of money women get, there is no way someone could have told me that I only could get $1000! It is also odd that this story came out after Steve blasting MTO!
This story is BULLSHYT!!!!!!
How in the hell is someone going to trick you into not getting a lawyer during a divorce??? Everyone knows that all is fair in love and war...ANd everyone has enough damn sense to know that you get a lawyer when you are going through legal proceedings like that.
Got nothin' but love for Steve Harvey, my fellow West Virginia native....still representin' strong!
"I can't stand the way he dresses/looks or talks"
You are too damn funny!
Comedians are notorius for being dicks in their everyday lives. Just look at Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence and Dave Chappelle
DO YOU GUYS ALWAYS HAVE TO SAY I'M FIRST, I'M FIRST. THAT'S SO STUPID, JUST POST YOUR COMMENT, WOU CARES IF YOUR FIRST OR NOT. BUT ANYWAY STEVE HARVEY YOU GOT NERVES TRYING TO TALK ABOUT THE YOUNG BLACK MEN AND THE HIP HOP MUSIC, YOUR JUST HAS WORSE AS THEM. BUT AT LEAST THEY DO PAY THEIR KIDS MOTHERS AT LEASE 10,000 A MONTH. YOU ARE PATHEIC!
I think MTO is REALLY reaching on this one. This story would have broke a long time ago. Steve is not a small time celb, and his morning show has made him even more popular. I, too, am a faithful listener of the show and I trully think MTO is LYING about this one.
Oh, did your feelings get hurt after he aired you out over the air? lol!
MTO get some thicker skin!
If there is a chance that this is remotely true then it will be confirmed by a riliable source and not one with a grudge.
My ex' attorney tried to get me to use her for both of us...it's not a conflict of interest if you agree to have the same counsel...however, I'm not stuck on stupid...I got a mad-dog Attorney and got everything that I wanted...my ex tried to talk about how I didn't help him shovel snow etc. H-ll he wasn't in the house helping me clean...anyway...my Attorney made him look like a fool...Thank you Mr. Johnson!
If anybody trusts Steve Harvey after what he did to one of his friends, they're crazy. Years ago, Bernie Mac was on Oprah and started telling her the story about a producer calling and telling him how Steve went behind his back trying to steal the proposal for the "Bernie Mac" show. What deceit! With a friend like that, who needs enemies?!!! I haven't been a fan of Steve's since.If he would do that to a friend, now look what he did to his ex-wife and child. Nothing good is going to come out of Steve.
For those of you who are not familiar with the Smokinggun website, they have all kinds of legal court documents listed. You should read the one about the first child and Michael Jackson; it has details. It should be in their archives somewhere. They're usually the first to break news about legal issues and put the documents up on their site. This is real.
I can see Steve now, convincing Mary he was going to do right by her because of all she put up with from him. That's the kind of interviews he gave. All the while he knew he was going to con her. Like Mary or not, Steve's deceitful rep with his friends has proven this man to has 2 sides.
MTO couldn't wait to get something on Steve for blasting their asses. Also, why did the wife wait so long to file a lawsuit? Did someone "just now" give her some advice on what she did wrong in the divorce? She needs to get over it. If this is true, she was definitely dumb ass hell and now she wants revenge. I hope the judge throws this shit out and tell her to pick up her damn face.
Hmm, first and foremost I must say that there are alot of grimey birds out there that need to get smacked or even get a O.J. Simpson done to them because when your making money, pigeons will always find a scheme that will try to work and give them some attention. They will turn into mosquito's and do whatever they have to do to suck whatever they can get out of you including publicity. I'm basically sick and tired of hearing these dumb bytches brag about how they got smacked for being pigeon headed. I'm tired of the Karrine Steffans, the Carmen Bryants, Twista's ex-girlfriend and every other dumb broad that has fabricated a bunch of bullshyt to give women a bad reputation. So now we have these women that think all guys are dogs but it's not us, its these dumb broads from outta space that scam us and try to fit in with society and make it hard for us to determine the difference between the women and the bytches.
Perhaps it was a just and division over the house. I will take the rusty nickels for child support because I don't want you over mysplace. But sheesh, some attorneys are unscrupulous and conniving and will do anything to get a head.
I'm a beautiful woman but I do got a fight game and highly educated. This woman was a tab slow because there is no way his attorney would of been up in my face talking about sign my azz. Let the war begin! After I beat the mess out of Steve azz he would be calling the cops to press charges!
I just think the broad is making the whole shyt up just to get her little 5 minutes of fame. The bytch is a mosquito because how the fukk can Steve Harvey swindle her out of money when he's a fukking millionaire (do you catch my drift). She needs to get a O.J. Simpson done to her cause that broad is grimey. Somebody needs to karate chop the shyt outta her and if you taking her side, you need a few chops in the head too fukk ya fighting game, I'll pull a O.J. and say the glove don't fit.
If he beat her up and cheated on her, why did she wait until the divorce to talk about it? She should havew checked his a$$ back then.
The dummy should have gotten her own lawyer. How do you allow your husband's lawyer to give you advice on a divorce setlement. For that, somebody needs to hit her up side her damn head.
WITH THOSE BIG ASS HORSE-CAMEL WANNA BE TEEFES HE SHOULD BE NICE AS HHHHELL!
BUT YALL BETTER BE REAL ON THIS. JUST THINK IF YOUR MOMS WAS ABUSE. SAD THING. MINE WAS AND IT WAS A TERRIBLE THING TO SEE. I MEAN IT TAKES A FEMALE TO HER LOWEST. SOME DONT KNOW HOW TO GET OUT OR WHAT TO DO. SOME TAKE IT TO KEEP THEIR FAMILY TOGETHER.
BUT A MAN LOW ENOUGH TO PUNCH ON A FEMALE...HE'S THE SCUM AT THE BUTTOM OF THE TOILET BOWL. AND HE CHEATED? TRASH. SHE CANT SEE IT NOW BUT SHE NEED TO BE THANKIN GOD THAT STALE URINE IS OUT OF HER LIFE.
STEVE HARVEY CHEATING AND LEAVING YOUR WIFE YOU WILL SEE AGAIN. I'VE SEEN IT HAPPEN EVERYDAY AND 10 AND 15 YEARS LATER THEY ARE CATCHIN HELL TIMES 3!
AND ONE GUY I KNOW STARTED CATCHING HELL RIGHT AFTER THE DIVORCE!
GOD DONT LIKE UGLY.
MS HARVEY GOD BLESS YOU LADY!
He will pay the piper for this one. He is such a bamma and a hypocrite. He used her up and threw her out like all the other woman and when he feels like doing that to Marjorie he will do the same. God aint through with him yet as he says.
MTO needs to cut it out.
Steve Harvey has custody of his son Winton and that miserable, evil woman is just bitter. Steve always say that he doesn't let anyone talk about his ex. That is between him and her.
I never knew there were such miserable, mean spirtit and evil people until I started reading MTO.
A lot of you talk about Steve Harvey, but I bet if came your way, he would be your BESTEST friend.
If you wasn't there, keep your mouth shut and get a life.
@busty40dd WHAT IS BITTER? IT SEEMS WOMEN WILL BE SO QUICK TO TAKE WHAT SOME MAN MADE UP, AND USE IT AGAINST ANOTHER WOMAN.
WHEN A GUY MITREATS AND DIVORCES A WOMAN, SHE'S BITTER. ARE YOU OUTTA YA MIND? HE DID THIS WOMAN WRONG!
I'LL BE SO GLAD WHEN FEMALES START TO HAVE THEIR OWN MIND AND THINK FOR THEMSELVES.
WHEN A MAN TRICKED YOU OUT, WERE YOU BITTER? OR WAS HE A LOW DOWN DIRTY DOG?
SEE IT'S DIFFERENT WHEN IT HITS HOME.
GOOD, YES YES YES! I STARTED THE PETITION MYSELF AGAINST MTO FOR THEIR DISTASTEFUL REPORTING OF MS. WEST'S UNTIMELY DEATH AND I'M GLAD STEVE TOL YA'LL DUMBAZZES BOUT YOURSELVES. BET HE WAS BRUTAL TO. NOW YU GO TOE TO TOE WITH STEVE AND YOU BETTER BE PREPARED CUZ HE'S ON YOUR AZZ NOW MTO!!! AND DONDA DIDN'T GET A AUGMENTATION U IDIOTS SHE TRIED TO GET A REDUCTION!
Could be true. I saw an awards show once, where he was presented an award, and asked for his wife to come up while he accepted the award. She threw him daggers the whole time, and her comments were snippy, to put it politely. She acted like she wanted to boil his rabbit, but he kept it cool. That tells me that they were having problems, but he FORCED her to come up and speak on his behalf with him, against her will. He probably whooped her azz into submission.
Steve has been dating the new, third wife for years. He dated Mary while married to the first wife. That's his MO. Mary is not the brightest bulb in the lamp but she didn't deserve to be swindled. He needed to be exposed as should any man who tries to get over. As for Wynton, he had partial custody but not sole custody so she is entitled to child support. I hope she gets half, the lawyer disbarred and Steve gets a new wig...
I believe every word of it! This man is soooo full of s-h-i-t. He appeared in person at the FYE near Radio City Music Hall to sign copies of the DVD, "Don't Trip, He Ain't Through With Me Yet." At THAT time, I was a fan, so I decided to purchase the DVD and get his signature on it. I paid for it and then waited in line for HIS MAJESTY. When it was my turn, I approached the SOB, smiling. He gave me the most nasty look I've ever seen a human being give another on a first meeting. If I didn't have my 12-year-old daughter with me, I would have taken the DVD out of the box, put it on the floor, stepped on it and left. I'd already seen it in the movie theater anyway. Instead, I stood next to him and had my daughter snap a picture.
His nephew, Tommy, was much more polite and classy.
And HELL YEAH, Mary, should get ALL the child support she's entitled to. I get $1,300 a month for one child, and my child's father is a police officer!! I KNOW she's entitled to more than that.
They say you will one day met your match. those head games he played with mary is cool, because he m arried the right one. She has been playing his azz for years. Steve don't even realize it. HE HAS MET HIS MATCH. HE WILL GET ALL COMING TO HIM. If he divorce marjorie she will get hers. her family will make sure, she don't miss a beat. DRAINING THAT BANK ACCOUNT. Iknow them personal and they are no joke when it comes to that money. Steve will pay the piper for all he has done wrong. "go to www.mediatakeout.com" "list five words to describe this situation steve harvey and wife" you're see who he's playing with.
Everyone keeps calling this woman stupid -- not necessarily so. When someone is
emotionally and physically tied to a narcissist, it is hard to get from them.
They will use whatever feelings you have for them to their own advantage. Do not
under estimate their ability to use their charm and seemingly confident
personality; it's all apart of the manipulative games they play.
Look at some of the following symptoms of narcissism. You'll find Steve Harvey
exhibits a lot of these signs and this only from watching is TV shows and
listening to his radio show. Imagine what his wife saw.
Symptoms of narcissism: Steve Harvey exhibits many of these traits:
Believing that you're better than others
Fantasizing about power, success and attractiveness
Exaggerating your achievements or talents
Expecting constant praise and admiration
Believing that you're special and acting accordingly
Failing to recognize other people's emotions and feelings
Expecting others to go along with your ideas and plans
Taking advantage of others
Expressing disdain for those you feel are inferior
Being jealous of others
Believing that others are jealous of you
Trouble keeping healthy relationships
More Narcissistic behavior:
Setting unrealistic goals
Being easily hurt and rejected
Having a fragile self-esteem
Appearing as tough-minded or unemotional
Just a little FYI. Remember all that glitters is not golden.
