Mary Shackelford, Steve Harvey’s second ex-wife, is suing him for up to $60 million dollars. That’s six zeros!
According to E! News , she’s suing Steve for items like, child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and even “soul murder.”
In court documents, Mary alleges that since their divorce in 2005 her life has never been the same. Mary states she been suicidal and now has to self-medicate to help deal with the aftermath of their heated divorce battle.
“The judge said our divorce would be contingent upon the division of community assets but that never happened,”
“Steve Harvey owes me $50 million and I want him arrested for violating my civil rights. I want him charged with a constitutional rights violation, falsifying documents, perjury, contempt of court, embezzlement, extortion and collusion. For what he’s done to me, I want to see Steve Harvey behind bars.”

In now-deleted youtube videos dating back to 2005, Mary had this to say about her marriage to Steve:
“He turned my son against me, had me evicted from our house,” Mary says. “I woke up, and everything was gone.”
To which Harvey’s lawyers responded:
“We are appalled and aware of the videos and other fabricated documents…which contained false, misleading, derogatory, disparaging, malicious, explicit and slanderous information about Mr. Harvey, his current wife and others….We are saddened that the ex-wife has resorted to such devious and selfish behavior, with a reckless disregard for their minor son, her adult son and Mr. Harvey’s other children.” attorney Bobbie Edmonds said bat the time.
“The ex-wife is fully aware of the court’s current orders and permanent injunctions which prohibit either party, their lawyers or representatives from discussing and releasing information on the Internet and to the media. We are taking the necessary legal steps to rectify this matter to the full extent of the law and we will be seeking contempt and sanctions against her for such reprehensible and callous disregard for the court orders.”
Mary also alleges that was having an affair with his current wife, Marjorie, while he was married to Mary.
“With all the emails and the text messages, the different things that I was finding out about…I thought the least he could do was make me whole at the end of it. He just left, walked out the door. Once he realized I was going to divorce him…he went [to our apartment in New York], and then [Marjorie] joined him there.”
“Steve never said that he was sorry…He had our housekeeper pack his belongings up and forward those belongings to New York.”
Mary has also served time in prison due to her legal battles with Steve.
She was found to be in contempt of court in 2013 for ignoring a gag order, and thrown in jail for 30 days. Read more about that HERE
