Steve Harvey is going all out to put the brakes on the alleged slander charges being dished by his ex-wife Mary Harvey. His PR people released he follwing statement and court documents:
On Monday, February 7, 2011, the Honorable Judge Dry of the District Court in Collin County, Texas has approved the release of the attached legal and binding document (link below) which verifiably prove that the following allegations from Mary Harvey against Mr. Steve Harvey (spurred by her appearance on YouTube) were indeed false:
(1) Mary Harvey was not left broke or destitute by Mr. Harvey after their divorce in 2005. She was paid $40,000/month until March 2009 and then paid a lump sum of $1.5 million;
(2) Mary Harvey was not left homeless after her divorce from Mr. Harvey in 2005. She was awarded three (3) homes in their property settlement;
(3) Mr. Harvey is the primary custodian of their 13 year old son, whom Mary Harvey willingly put on an airplane to his father. Mary Harvey sent him to his father without Mr. Harvey’s knowledge; and
(4) The 2005 divorce of Steve and Mary Harvey was granted on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and his current wife was not named in the original divorce proceeding nor was she the cause of the marital break-up.
Although there is a gag order in place from the 2005 divorce proceedings, The Honorable Judge Dry has temporarily lifted the order so that Mr. Harvey will have the opportunity to set the record straight with the hope that the plethora of media outlets that reported these false allegations wlll now report the truth.
