Steve Harvey being sued by ex-wife for alleged torture, child endangerment

But as The New York Daily News points out, Mary Harvey received a significant settlement in the 2005 divorce.

Mary Harvey, the ex-wife of Steve Harvey, is suing him in a new lawsuit for $60 million for damaging her soul. When it came to Ms. Harvey's claims of being barred from seeing her son, Harvey explained to Judge Robert Dry that Mary had once allowed a then 13-year-old Wynton to board an airplane to see Steve, without actually notifying him of his son's arrival beforehand.

The documents stated that because of Harvey, Vaughn "attempted suicide by self-medicating [in] an effort to stop the pain", and that even Harvey's attorney inflicted "severe emotional distress" upon the mother, allegedly causing numerous medical conditions.

The suit, filed by civil rights activist Essie Berry, also alleged child endangerment, kidnapping, harassment, brainwashing, theft by deception, breach of contract, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and "soul murdering".

It's not the first time she has made the claim.

Harvey's lawyer, Brandon R. Williams, released a statement Friday morning about the lawsuit, saying, "Mr. Harvey vehemently denies any allegations set forth in the lawsuit". In 2013 she was jailed for 30 days for contempt of court after violating a confidentiality clause following their divorce. Williams also called the lawsuit "meritless" and "frivolous".

Though their divorce was finalized in 2005 and Harvey has since remarried, drama erupted in 2011 when Mary posted a series of YouTube videos claiming Harvey had an affair during their marriage and left her with nothing when they divorced. "We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the Complaint".

The news is the latest bad publicity for the talk show host.

Representatives for Harvey did not respond to requests for comment.
