Actor/Author and Comedian Steve Harvey is in the hot seat for alleged accusations made by his ex-wife Mary Harvey, who claims the actor brutally beat their son.
According to TMZ, Mary claims Harvey reportedly pressured her — with the help of his lawyer — into signing a letter admitting she lied about Steve beating their 11-year-old son with a belt and paddle.
The letter reads in part, “I have to deal with that [the lie] and answer to God for my behavior.”
The letter goes on, “I know that you love our son and would do anything legal to protect him. You are a loving father.”
As for Steve’s effort to keep the allegations under wraps, the letter goes on to say, “I realize that you sought the sealing of the record as a measure to protect our son from a lot of unnecessary anxiety from his peers and others and to protect us as a unit from a media frenzy.”
Mary however refused to sign the letter and their war continued … ending this week with a judge throwing Mary in jail for leaking documents to the media.
And as for Steve … authorities cleared him of the child abuse charges. I guess money does do ‘wonders,’ especially in the court system.
