A week after Steve Harvey issued a controversial note to his staff, his ex has issued her own sort of memo.
The TV star’s second ex-wife, Mary Harvey, has sued the “Family Feud” host for $ 60 million, alleging that he damaged her “soul,” TMZ reports.
Harvey’s ex, whom he married in 1996 and divorced in 2005, is reportedly suing for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
They share one son, Wynton, and Mary reportedly alleges in her lawsuit that the pain of losing him (Steve has custody) has robbed her of the joy of Mother’s Day, and has left her suicidal and self-medicating to cope.
In the document, which was filed not by a lawyer but by a “civil rights activist,” Mary writes, “All was loss Mary L. Harvey was dead,” the gossip site reports.
Harvey’s representatives declined the Daily News’ request for comment.
Harvey, 60, and Mary endured a contentious breakup, and this is not the first time the two have had to settle drama in court.
Though their divorce was finalized in 2005 and Harvey has since remarried, drama erupted in 2011 when Mary posted a series of YouTube videos claiming Harvey had an affair during their marriage and left her with nothing when they divorced.
A judge later slammed her in a court declaration for potentially breaking a gag order and spreading false information, pointing out that she was given three homes in the property settlement and received $ 40,000 each month through March 2009, as well as an additional $ 1.5 million.
In the videos, Mary also accused Harvey of taking their son from her, but the 2011 court documents revealed that Mary knowingly sent their son to Harvey without Harvey’s knowledge.
Just last week, Harvey faced backlash after a memo sent out to members of his staff revealed that the talk show host did not want his employees to approach him.
