Summary: Steve Harvey has been accused of murdering the soul of his ex-wife. 

Steve Harvey is not a perfect man. While on live TV, he can’t read the correct Miss Universe the first time, and he apparently hates when his coworkers talk to him (but who doesn’t!). However, does being imperfect equate to being a monster? According to a shocking new lawsuit from his ex-wife, Steve is a torturer and a Soul Murderer!


Steve’s ex, Mary Harvey, filed a lawsuit against the mustached TV host, and she is seeking an astounding number–$60 million! According to Radar Online, who exclusively obtained the suit, the complaint was “bizarre and rambling,” and Mary accused Steve of years of “torture” and “soul murdering.”

“[Steve Harvey] began his prolonged tortured with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering by acknowledging three years into the relationship, that he was still married to his first wife. As the behavior of torture persisted the corporeal agony compelled the plaintiff to mutate her identity, her ideals and principles began to crumble,” the lawsuit obtained by Radar said.

Wed in 1996, Mary and Steve had a nasty divorce in 2005, and during the twelve years that have passed since then, she claims that she has suffered emotionally and self-medicates because of their split.

Mary claims that Steve owes her $60 million for the crimes of murder, kidnapping, torture, child endangerment, conspiracy against rights, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The lawsuit was not filed by a lawyer, TMZ states, but instead by a woman who claims to be a “civil rights activist.”

Mary said that during the course of their marriage she had tried to kill herself and that Steve had been cruel after the death of their son. She said that Steve, who has since moved on to his third wife Marjorie Bridges, was a Soul Murderer.

“Soul murdering is a crime not a diagnosis so murder is achieved by a combination of torture deprivation and brainwashing,” the lawsuit stated.

Mary also said that Steve had cheated on her and had impregnated the other woman named Terry Smith. According to Mary, Smith had sued Steve after she was pregnant, and the couple had to pay Smith using their joint bank account. Mary said that the pain of the scandal caused her mental anguish.

Steve’s attorney, Brandon Williams, denies the claims against the Think Like a Man author.

“Mr. Harvey vehemently denies any allegations set forth in the lawsuit,” Williams said. “The Complaint is meritless, frivolous and the allegations are completely false. We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the Complaint.”

Steve is currently the host of The Steve Harvey Show and Family Feud. The in-demand comedian has been frequently in the news for his positive relationship with President Donald Trump, his racist remarks about the sexual desirability of Asian men, and a recent work memo where he detailed rules that stated no one was allowed to speak to him without an appointment. And also, who can forget his infamous Miss Universe mix-up?

Mary and Steve have one child together, and Fox News reported that she was arrested in 2013 for violating a gag order that was a part of their divorce.
