We have learned that Steve Harvey is once again involved in a huge scandal! The TV personality was sued for allegedly stalking, harassing and even ‘murdering’ someone’s ‘emotional state of mind.’
The lawsuit documents were filed on March 8.
Late Fred Rerun Berry’s wife Essie claims she was offered to be part of a reality TV show – ‘Widow: Wives and Ex Celebrity Wives’ – in 2013.
That is when she contacted Harvey’s ex, Mary, to join her on Widow.
However, she did not know that the broken up pair had a sealed gag order in the state of Texas.
Harvey allegedly accused her of being a ‘co-conspirator’ and an ‘extortionist.’
‘Steve Harvey continued to make attempts to shatter and murder Ms. Berry’s emotional state of mind through the Texas courts with a lie for years. Mr. Harvey made attempts to silence Ms. Berry through malicious prosecution in order to protect his stardom image,’ the legal documents read.
Apparently, Harvey hired a process server so that he could always contact and send her unknown docs.
In addition, she says that he even followed her to one of her relatives’ home once.
At the end of 2013, the woman finally reported him to the police, saying he made ‘threats on her life.’
Later, she also filed a request for a restraining order.
Essie says the TV star’s goal was to silence a show that ‘would reveal the truth about Mr. Harvey and Mary’s marriage and breakup, their family life, the ups and downs of being a celebrity’s former wife, and Mr. Harvey’s indiscretions.’
‘With feelings of hopelessness and depression, Ms. Berry was forced to remain silent for four years in order to protect what little good image she had left, and protect Mary — while Mr. Harvey paraded around making false allegations against both Ms. Berry and Mary,’ the lawsuit papers read.
She is now requesting court protection from his ‘bullies’ and ‘malicious scare tactics’ as well as an apology and $5 million!
