Marjorie Harvey: Launching Defamation Lawsuit Against Steve Harvey's Ex-Wife, Mary Shackelford

Comments (247)


Steve Harvey took to his nationally syndicated radio show yesterday to address salacious allegations that his ex-wife, Mary Shackelford, posted via YouTube. In her videos Shackelford claims that the King of Comedy was a serial cheater who left her for his current wife, Marjorie Bridges Harvey.

Since their 2005 divorce, Shackelford claimed that she now has nothing, as Harvey also has full custody of their 15-year-old son, Wynton.

Now, the New York Times best-selling author's current wife has retained an attorney to fight the allegations that she was the other woman, something that she said has left her both "shocked and dismayed."

Marjorie is pursuing a lawsuit against Shackelford.

"As a wife and a mother, I cannot stand back and allow the defamation of my character or actions that will malign my family," the philanthropist said in a statement released through her attorney C. Anthony Mulrain, exclusively released to BlackVoices.com.

"So, I will do what I need to do to the greatest extent of the law."

Shackelford claimed she found e-mails and text messages between her 'Family Feud' talk show host ex-husband and Marjorie and that after she expressed a desire to get a divorce, he left and fled to New York City to be with Marjorie.


"The part that's hurtful in this is my wife and children had to be drugged [sic] into this," a frustrated Harvey said on-air. "If you're going to be vindictive go ahead and aim it at me, but my son is coming in the room crying and that's also her son, so why would you do this?"

The current Mrs. Harvey, who called the three viral videos "malicious and baseless," stated that "the posting is nothing more than a sad attempt by Mary to make herself relevant in the eyes of the media."

Marjorie is looking forward to making her case in court.

As previously reported, Shackelford said her ex-spouse is currently suing her in Texas, which is why she is now speaking up.


Marjorie has been urged to not personally respond to allegations to avoid being held in contempt of the court.
