Steve Harvey’s ex-wife sues him for $60M for damaging her ‘soul’
Steve Harvey is no stranger to controversy, but his latest jokes about the Flint Water Crisis may have crossed the line.
Harvey got a caller from Flint this morning who was bragging about the Warriors winning the NBA Championship. Steve started to blast the caller, when he made remarks about the Flint Water Crisis.
His co-hosts stepped in and tried to backtrack, but Harvey had to have the last word.
When he was getting ready to hang up with the caller, he told him to, “Enjoy your nice brown glass of water.” You can hear the comment at about 1:20 into the video. If you listen closely, you can hear other Flint Water Crisis remarks in the conversation as well.
To be completely honest with you, I’m not a huge fan of Steve Harvey. I know people that absolutely despise the man, but I’ve never been anything more than indifferent toward him . . . until now.
Harvey is someone who should be championing a cause to help Flint, not making jokes to demean someone from Flint that disagrees with him. The whole altercation started over an opinion on the NBA Finals, and turned into an ugly, ignorant comment. I don’t think this will lead to anything more than an apology from Harvey, but it’s definitely ended my thoughts of him being any kind of celebrity.
Steve Harvey has been getting pushback after he made jokes about the state of Flint’s water during a morning radio talk show.
He was on the radio show after the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals. Harvey, a Cleveland fan, was lamenting the loss when a caller called in to tell Harvey that Cleveland didn’t “deserve jack.”
According to many Facebook posts, Harvey shot back by saying that the man, who was from Flint, didn’t have access to clean water to shower, and when producers told him he should apologize, he said, “I wasn’t talking about the city of Flint. I was talking about him.”
“He gone call in and say Cleveland don’t deserve jack and he over there bathing in all that silver water,” he continued.
He also took one more shot at the man, saying, “Enjoy your nice brown glass of water.”
The exchange was posted to Facebook and caused serious uproar and social media users blasted Harvey for making light of a serious situation. Harvey has since issued a statement saying that it was nothing but a joke and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
This morning callers and I were cracking jokes about the Cleveland Cavaliers loss to the Golden State Warriors. I’m a huge Cavs fan.The caller and I were talking trash about our teams and cities. “SIMPLY TRASH TALKING ABOUT SPORTS”.
Tony Rock says Steve Harvey’s wife was his mistress -- Why do we have to do this to each other?
Mary Harvey, the ex-wife of Steve Harvey, is suing him in a new lawsuit for $60 million for damaging her soul.
According to TMZ, Mary is still feeling the ill effects of the divorce that was finalized between the two of them in 2005. In docs filed on Wednesday by someone described as her “civil rights activist,” Mary claimed that since the divorce, she has been devastated by the loss of her son and business, especially on Mother’s Day.
“All was loss. Mary L. Harvey was dead,” Mary says in the suit, which claims that she self-medicates after the divorce, which emotionally and physically destroyed her.
The suit is coming after Steve for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Steve Harvey apologizes for offensive joke about Asian men
“Who the f*** picked Steve Harvey as the representative for all things black?” he asked. “Steve Harvey – let’s keep this sh** funky – Steve Harvey is on his third marriage. His third wife was mistress to his second wife!”
“Yet black people have annointed this motherf*****r the oracle when it comes to black dating!” he continued, clearly in disbelief. “This n****r wrote a book on dating! You on your third wife, homie!”
He later added, “With all respect, why can’t we pick a n****r that know what he talking about?”

Last week, Steve Harvey made an offensive joke about Asian men, and he is now apologizing for the joke on Twitter.
He took to the social media site on Tuesday to say, “Wanted to share this today,” before going on to show an apology he had written on the Notes app: “I offer my humblest apology for offending anyone, particularly those in the Asian community, last week. It was not my intention and the humor was not meant with any malice or disrespect whatsoever.”
Last week, Harvey made the tasteless joke when joking about self-help books, specifically one that he had seen called How to Date White Women: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. He said in his comedy routine that white women didn’t want to date Asian men, and neither did black women.
