Steve Harvey's ex-wife is playing the feud for all the world to see.
In a three-part YouTube tirade lasting 25 minutes, Mary Harvey, bashes the Family Feud host for allegedly cheating on her throughout their nearly 10-year marriage and then leaving her high and dry when they divorced in 2005.
"He turned my son against me, had me evicted from our house," Mary says. "I woke up, and everything was gone."
And with that, Harvey's lawyers immediately went to Defcon 5.
"We are appalled and aware of the videos and other fabricated documents...which contained false, misleading, derogatory, disparaging, malicious, explicit and slanderous information about Mr. Harvey, his current wife and others," attorney Bobbie Edmonds said in a statement Monday.
"The ex-wife is fully aware of the court's current orders and permanent injunctions which prohibit either party, their lawyers or representatives from discussing and releasing information on the Internet and to the media. We are taking the necessary legal steps to rectify this matter to the full extent of the law and we will be seeking contempt and sanctions against her for such reprehensible and callous disregard for the court orders."
The estranged exes have a son, Broderick, who was born in 1997. Mary also has an adult son from a previous relationship, and Harvey has three children from his first marriage. Mary was his second wife.
Mary claims the Original Kings of Comedy funnyman was messing around with his future third wife, Marjorie, behind her back.
"With all the emails and the text messages, the different things that I was finding out about," she says, referring to the alleged affair, the camera panning to a typed page presented to be a lurid email between Harvey and Marjorie. "I thought the least he could do was make me whole at the end of it. He just left, walked out the door. Once he realized I was going to divorce him...he went [to our apartment in New York], and then [Marjorie] joined him there."
"Steve never said that he was sorry," Mary continues. "He had our housekeeper pack his belongings up and forward those belongings to New York."
She also says that Harvey is suing her in Texas because he blames her for not getting his own show on Oprah Winfrey's new cable network.
Edmonds, Harvey's lawyer, concluded: "We are saddened that the ex-wife has resorted to such devious and selfish behavior, with a reckless disregard for their minor son, her adult son and Mr. Harvey's other children."
The two dated briefly 17 years ago, ultimately marrying in 2007.
"[God] took us all the way around the block, halfway around the world, and we got back to each other," Harvey said.
