According to a report from E! News, the lawsuit against Steve Harvey made by his ex-wife, Mary Shackelford, has been thrown out of court by the judge. It’s a great day for the comic who has avoided an annoying battle in court following his wife filing a $60 million suit against him.
In the court documents, she alleged torture, child endangerment, and much more. A source close to Harvey said, “Harvey says there is no merit to any of the claims at all. It’s bizarre how she just won’t let their relationship go.”
“They broke up a long time ago, and since then, she just keeps on flaming Harvey. It’s crazy; it’s time for her to move on to someone else, get another man.”
The documents claimed she lost her son, businesses, home, and spent Mother’s Day alone by herself as if spending a night in solitude on a holiday is the worst possible circumstance.
Reportedly, her lawsuit was filed by a “civil rights activist,” and not a real lawyer. In April, Mary posted a series of crazy YouTube videos claiming that she never received her divorce settlement after they broke up.
In them, in addition to making all kinds of nefarious claims, she explained that Steve owes her “$50 million,” and she wants him in jail for allegedly violating her civil rights.
The judge supposedly told her that her divorce would be based on the community assets following their split, but it never happened.
She went on to make an endangered list of claims and alleged violations perpetrated by Harvey, including things like “falsifying documents, extortion and collusion, embezzlement, perjury,” and many other harrowing legal terms. Mary said she wants her ex-husband behind bars.
According to reports, Steve and Mary got married back in 1996, and it lasted all the way until 2006. In 2007, Harvey married Marjorie Bridges-Woods, and they’ve been together since then.
