Chicago — Over the course of the weekend, Steve Harvey’s name became a trending topic after a series of YouTube videos surfaced of his ex-wife, Mary Shackelford Harvey, making shocking claims against the King of Comedy.
In the viral videos, Harvey’s former spouse alleges that her ex-husband was a serial cheater and left her with nothing, including custody of their 15-year-old son Wynton following their 2005 divorce.
“He turned my son against me, had me evicted from our house,” she said. “I woke up and everything was gone.”
So what’s all the talk about six years later?
According to People, Shackleford says Harvey is currently suing her in Texas, which is why she is now speaking up. “In Steve’s opinion, I was responsible when Oprah [Winfrey] did not give him a TV show,” she shared. “I’m being sued for that. That is why I’m saying what I have to say.”
