Steve Harvey Responds to Ex-Wife's Claims

by at . Comments

Steve Harvey is no longer letting his lawyer do his talking.

A few days after the comedian's first wife, Mary Harvey, unleashed a verbal, videotaped assault against him, the best-selling author has spoken out against the allegations that he cheated on her and turned the couple's son against her.

"I know the truth," Harvey said. "My son is coming into the room crying. And that's what hurts me, why you would do this. And I don't even understand the purpose. I mean, I got you're mad, but [she's talking about] 12 years ago. That's what we're doin' now?"

Steve and Mary got married 1996 and divorced nine years later. Son Broderick was born in 1997 and Steve has since remarried.

"The truth's gonna come out," Harvey said. "Because once you go public, you allow people to start asking questions... I'm just more concerned about my son, who I have total custody of. He doesn't deserve the questions."

Harvey concluded by referring to Mary's rant as being full of "lies," but said he won't reciprocate by going into similar detail in public. The reason? That's still his child's mother.

"And I'm his father," the actor said. "And it's my job to raise him right."

Nothing will satisfy Mary Harvey... No apology, no money, no custody or your son. The publicity will help her to sell her book. I'll even buy a copy and I didn't buy his. This is just a reminder to all women that no matter how much you want to do for your man and/or family, you better do something for YOU!!! It can happen to any woman whether you are married to an athlete, entertainer or everyday Joe. Don't be bitter, get better!! Don't hate the player, hate the game!!!

I do believe Mary Harvey. Steve is a man, a man who had to go through something to get where he is. That don't mean he's fake,or that his book is fill of sh**. It just means that he's human and made mistakes. I would take advise from someone who been through the storm before someone who just thinks their so know it all and never had to go through nothing. If speaking out helps Mary feel better after 12 or 60 years DO IT. No one knows what she had to go through. Her and Steve might have to sit down with out his new wife and talk. And Steve give the lady some money. Damn she might really need it!! Lol, real talk

All I hear is a bunch of women defending a woman's right to her child or whatever... what about fathers huh? We can't raise children the same as you? I'll tell you what, my daughter has received plenty of care from me. I clean diapers, dress her, do her hair, bathe her, take her to daycare, read her stories, etc. What makes me any less deserving of caring for my daughter? You are all just hating him because he's a successful male who actually got to keep his child. How teeeeeerrible! PLEASE!

I did not entertain steve's book, I knew he wasn't shit from back in the day. What he did is nothing new-Mary should not be without her child, nor should she be broke if he was a decent man that monkey he married looks used up,been around the block too many times, now just has a strong desire to spend alot of money---keep watching the end shall beging it to past.

We should never let Love and trust make us so foolish.The really crazy part is that Steve allowed the same women who whipped him, influence his actions towards the mother of his child. What wife of a millionaire walks away broke? Nothing but the hate of woman that has taken over can make a weak selfish man do the things Steve has done to this women. She's not lying, you can see that in her face, her spirit has been broken and her soul tested.Let the women see her son, man! What kinda man R You?

Why in the hell is this lady popping up after 12 yrs. Her shit couldnt have been together if the court granted him full custody of their child. It takes a lot for a court to take a child away from the birth mother unless she gave him up voluntarily

Steve......Steve, how can I take relationship advice from you when yo sh**** is fuk****up. You knew what you was doing when you was doing it. KARMA's a bit*** and yours is coming. What makes you a authority on relationships? I know YOU! I would NEVER buy your books. You should NEVER take a child from their mother.

The amazing thing is...if she was such a good mother it would have showed in the court system and she would have the very least joint custody. This story is not new, if you listened to Steve for several years he has been dealing with this issue for quite a while. It's sad but true that sometimes we can't let the hurt of the past go. I am a woman that has been hurt in the past but like m my Mom always says...you can't move forward if you keep looking back"! God will right all wrongs and she needs to think of her son's needs...not her revenge!

Why re-hatch the past? He says it happened 12 years AGO! C'mon. I have a feeling she has an ulterior motive why she wants to start trash now. Money maybe or just tired of him. Who knows but the truth is the past should indeed stay in the past.
