The secretive divorce of Mary Harvey still widens the eye of the readers. The TV actor had caused a sensation in media by filing a divorce with television talk show host and self-proclaimed "Relationship guru" Steve Harvey. But it doesn't seem the relationship guru is not that responsible of a man himself. Therefore, today we are covering the inside story of Mary Harvey and about her personal life and history with Steve Harvey for her followers.
The reason for Divorce: Extramarital affair or infidelity?
The divorce which took place on 2005 between Mary and Steve Harvey had grabbed the headlines of page six. Nobody actually knew the reason for divorce. However, in the recent years, the actual reason for divorce had hit the headlines when Mary accused her husband of cheating on her with several other women.
Mary Harvey released 3 different videos on youtube stating how Steve treated his marriage with her as well as how he reacted during the fallout of their marriage.
By releasing a video on YouTube and publishing the letter sent by one of the mistresses to Steve, the former wife has given a clear cut clarification of the divorce. In the video, she has revealed about Steve cheating on her current Marjorie and how Steve had turned her children against her.
Mary vs. Steve Harvey
In 2011, Mary revealed the truth about her relationship with Steve Harvey and moreover the aftermath of their divorce in 3 different youtube videos. These 3 videos were reuploaded after Mary's original channel was taken down by Youtube for reasons unknown. The videos show Steve’s painful treatment towards his wife and how their relationship started and ending.
In her first video, Mary talks about how her relationship started out with Steve and how Steve Harvey became the man she is. Steve tried to woo her from the moment she met, not only visiting her during her work but also writing her poetry. That's right the religions preacher wrote Mary beautiful poems, and she fell for her because of it, eventually.
But she also talks about the sacrifices she made for Steve. The couple were homeless, were barely getting by, and scraping changes and even stole gas to survive. She talks about her child, Winston, who, according to Mary was being strangled during his birth by the umbilical cord and suffocating and she had to go through an emergency c-section to survive.
Shortly after this, on her 2nd marriage anniversary, Mary found a letter addressed to Steve by one of his mistresses. This letter broke her heart, and it will break yours too.

Steve's treatment of his wife and his mistress were awful but what he did next was even worse.
Mary states how she confronted Steve Harvey about her mistresses and his cheating affairs but Steve never provided answers and instead just left without any answers. According to her Steve never tried to deal with his issues and belittled her. The comedian sent a housekeeper to pickup all his stuff and didn't even appear in the court for divorce procedure instead.
Not only that but Mary claims that Steve took her son, who she almost lost her life for, and turned him against her. Through his political contacts and manipulation, Mary asserted how Steve took her businesses, which she owned along with Steve and had her evicted effectively leaving her penniless and broke.
Not only that but Steve even filed a lawsuit against Mary, putting her in the blame when Oprah refused to give Steve Harvey a tv show.
Mary eventually was fed up with Steve's treatment, and after being dragged through the mud by media's treatment of her, she finally decided to come to the spotlight. After reading Rhonda Frost and Shanae Hall's book 'Why do I have to think like a man' which is a response to Steve Harvey's book 'Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man,' she finally found the courage to speak the truth.
This so far has been a wild story, but that is the least of the stories about Steve Harvey.
