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."

I believe she is acting out of desperation. She has no money and it seems that there is no relationship between herself and her son due to possibly some interference. I see two grown people who are acting very immature. Yes, Steve is right a child is involved THEIR child and they cannot sit down and talk like two MATURE adults and work this out? He is acting solely through his lawyer, he seems to be angry that she wanted to divorce him because of his adultry (which she had every right to do). They both need to take responsbility for what they did and do what's in the best interest of their son. If the current wife was part of breaking of the marriage all I can say is you reap what you sow. Kharma is a b#*ch.

Come on Steve.........for years i listened to your show and this morning i just couldnt because i am a wife anda other. No matter what she beared your son and that child might be against his mother now but eventually he is going to hate you for whatyou are doing to his mother. That is a bonnnot be broken. You know you did not do right by Mary. How can you be out giving to and helping others and your on mother the woman you slept with for nine years is hungry?????????????? You said your are now serving God ....then do right by this womabecause God will be your judge. I have a children and i cannot think of my husband taking them a way from me should we part. That was a wicked act. Do you know what carrying a child for nine months feel like do youy know what birth pain feels like???? I tell you your son is eventually going to hate you if you do not do right by his mother . The nerve of Majorie tom be suing the woman after you know you stold the woman's husband you have a nerve.

It appears that Mary bought up their past history together, and Steve responded. Whoever is more accurate in their views of the marriage, now that their story has been placed out into the universe for all to see and analyze,maybe there will come a point in time when they will finally settle their differences and all will be right in their lives as they finally move on!!

If Steve cared about his son, then why are you suing his mother? You can't play innocent and plead the fifth in public, say its for the sake of your son, but behind closed doors you are dragging her through the mud and kicking her in the face.
We believe what we choose...Mary put Steve on blast? He has been writing and talking about her for years, in public. She goes on Youtube and she is the tasteless one. Oh, I get it. Its ok if you have a radio show and write a book. Then its ok to put your business and her business in the street.

Get over it Mary, I'm sure he left you financially secure. Dont play the woman scorned in the public eye, remember your son is innocent in all this. Life is too short to rehash the past.

Get over it Mary, dont be a woman scorned forever, I'm sure you were left financially secure. Think about the child who is innocent in all this. Life is too short to rehash the past, esp in the public eye

maybe Steve you should have not put her out there and she would not put you out there. I believe in marriage but I don't believe in cheating, not saying that you did cheat. This is just a statement . It is not for me to judge but you have claimed your roots with the Lord do the right thing and talk to your ex-wife. After you talk to her, then both of you need to talk to your son. Deal with his aniexities about his mom. Allow them to mend their broken relationship and assure him that everything is alright. That's the way God would have it. If you can reason together, please do so for the sake of your enire family and for the sake of your ex-wife. Peace and Blessings to you
