This is some straight messy, mess right here! It’s been over 10 years since their separation and divorce in 2005, but Mary L Vaughn, second ex wife of Steve Harvey isn’t letting that stop her from filing a 60 MILLION DOLLAR law suit against the TV Titan.
According to the court documents filed, Mary is still suffering from a slew of post-traumatic symptoms stemming from their nasty court battle. She says she’s been suicidal and self-medicates to cope with their nasty breakup and has been emotionally and physically destroyed after losing her son, her businesses, and the joy of Mother’s Days. She was allegedly subjected to “prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering,” the court documents also state she also wrote in her, argument “All was loss Mary L. Harvey was dead.”
The documents also claim that Vaughn “attempted suicide by self-medicating [in] an effort to stop the pain,” and allege that Harvey and his attorney caused “severe emotional distress” that led to a litany of medical conditions for Vaughn and her immediate family over the last 15 years.
Additionally, Vaughn is suing for alleged child endangerment, torture, kidnapping, breach of contract, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and “Soul Murdering”. That hurts my soul just saying that! The lawsuit also makes further claims of harassment, brainwashing and theft by deception.
Vaughn’s suit was filed by Essie Berry, a civil rights activist and NOT an attorney. The documents were filed “In Pro Per,” which means the plaintiff would be representing themselves, and Berry is acting as Vaughn’s power of attorney. Sooooooo, no lawyer? This is really gonna be a hot ghetto mess!
Not much is known about Mary’s personal life, but she began making headlines after she accused her husband of physically abusing their son, which were proven to be false. There are no details about Mary Lee Harvey’s age.
Steve Harvey has been married three times. His first wife, Marcia Harvey, gave birth to his twin daughters, Karli and Brandi, and a son, Broderick Harvey Jr. After they separated, Steve married Mary Lee Harvey in 1996. The couple has one son named Wynton Harvey. Steve and Mary Lee Harvey got divorced in 2005 and he won the custody of their child. Currently, Steve is married to Marjorie Elaine Harvey.
Their divorce was definitely NOT an amicable one. There was a lot of drama as both Mary and Steve fought for custody of their son. According to their settlement, Mary got three of Steve’s homes and, until 2009, received $40,000 per month. After violating a gag order, she was sent to prison for contempt of court.
In 2011, the then Mary Lee “Harvey” uploaded videos to YouTube stating that Steve Harvey had cheated on Mary with his current wife, as well as physically and emotionally abused her. Steve took legal action against the false allegations, proving that though he was friends with Majorie Elaine Harvey, they did not start dating until his divorce with Mary was finalized.
There are no details about Mary’s job or her personal life. However,you have to wonder if these allegations are true, or if she has “self medicated” through all her money and looking for Steve to “Cash me Ousside, HowBow Dah?” Or their could be some serious mental health issues at play, or the pain of a crushed, broken heart with a side of murdered soul sprinkled with bitter ex syndrome…..the possibilities are endless but one things for sure, this situation is gonna ALOT worst before it get better, unless Steve just breaks Mary off some hush money to make it all go away…stay tuned!
