SHE LIED?! A Texas Court Ruling Declares Mary Harvey's Allegations Against Steve Harvey Are False

A Texas court ruled in Steve Harvey's favor yesterday finding that Mary Harvey's allegations in her YouTube videos were lies.  Deets inside...

 

Bobbie Edmonds, Steve Harvey's lawyer, released a statement yesterday explaining what happened in court with her client and Mary Harvey.

According to Bobbie, the judge granted Steve a temporary injuction against those YouTube videos that Mary made, and gave the Harveys a "contempt of court" hearing date for March 10, 2011.  When the Harveys appear in court on that date, it will be to decide if Mary should be sanctioned or punished for violating the couple's gag order. 

Also in Steve's favor, the judge will allow him to clear his name by releasing information that proves Mary lied about him and his family. 

 

Here's a rundown of what the court declared yesterday:

(1) Mary Harvey was not left broke or destitute by Mr. Harvey after their divorce in 2005. She was paid $40,000/month until March 2009 and then paid a lump sum of $1.5 million;


(2) Mary Harvey was not left homeless after her divorce from Mr. Harvey in 2005. She was awarded three (3) homes in their property settlement;


(3) Mr. Harvey is the primary custodian of their 13 year old son, whom Mary Harvey willingly put on an airplane to his father. Mary Harvey sent him to his father without Mr. Harvey's knowledge; and


(4) The 2005 divorce of Steve and Mary Harvey was granted on the grounds of irreconcilable differences and his current wife was not named in the original divorce proceeding nor was she the cause of the marital break-up.

 

So there you have it.  The court found in Steve's favor and concluded that Mary lied.

It is sad that any of this

It is sad that any of this happen to both of them. If credible people do not come forware as witness to varify both sides of thier stories then the true is, only God really knows what really happened and just like the old saying; what goes around comes around for both of them.

i know some of these lawyers

i know some of these lawyers personally and they are both not the best or even particularly high-dollar. Ricky Anderson practices criminal law - so if he was the one representing her she did get screwed. either way, the time to protect herself was then not now. she has obviouslyran through the $5 million or so she did get and now she wants more $ - GTFOH. I wish they would BOTH go away. Sick of Steve and Mary.

Found this on the smoking gun

Found this on the smoking gun from back in 2007. Now didn't that woman (mary) say the same thing back then? Steve Harvey's Con Job Divorce Ex-wife claims comedian and lawyer rooked her in 2005 NOVEMBER 20--The ex-wife of comedian Steve Harvey claims that she was conned into a quickie divorce engineered by the entertainer and his lawyer, who allegedly sought to keep private details about the star's adultery, poor and neglectful parenting, and "physical and mental abuse" of his ex-spouse. In a lawsuit filed against her ex-lawyer, Mary Harvey claims that she was defrauded by the comedian and the couple's longtime attorney, who represented both sides in their November 2005 divorce. Harvey alleges that she was unaware of her right to independent counsel and, as a result, was severely shortchanged when it came to alimony, division of community property, and child support. In her District Court complaint, filed yesterday in Harris County, Texas, Harvey claims that the couple's attorney, Ricky Anderson, told her she could not legally get more than $1000 monthly in child support for the couple's son. Harvey alleges that Anderson was actually looking out for Steve Harvey's interests, and sought to protect his client's "packaged, do-good, likeable, Christian-type image in the public eye." Anderson and the comedian sought to "quickly and quietly dispose of the divorce" because there were "many things that Steve Harvey...did during the Harveys' marriage that he did not want the public to know about," Mary Harvey charges in her lawsuit, which was first reported by Courthouse News. Those "things," the complaint alleges, included "Steve Harvey's adultery, his abandonment of some of his children, his poor and neglectful parenting of the parties' child, and physical and mental abuse of Plaintiff." Harvey's complaint, an excerpt of which you'll find here, charges Anderson with breach of contract, professional negligence, and conspiracy.

In a court of law, it's about what you can prove. Steve Harvey's ex-wife could not prove her allegations, but the court papers proved her statements to be untrue.

I think only his side was

I think only his side was heard on the Feb 7th. There is another court date March 10th. She is guilty of violating the gag order. We all knew that. Are you sure she got what was awarded? That doesn't always happen. Only thing she didn't mention was the houses. Do you know how crafty lawyers are? She doesn't have one. He does. If you are not a lawyer, you don't really know what all this means. He has the opportunity to make you think anything he wants you to think for a month. He has the money and the lawyers to do it.

STEVE STILL

STEVE STILL LYING---------------TRYING TO SAVE WHAT IS LEFT OF HIS DISGUSTING IMAGE BUT ITS TOO LATE, PLAYER. Steve’s lawyer typed a MEMORNADUM (in other words) a letter and had the JUDGE to sign it. This MEMORANDUM is no indication of what Mary said was a lie. THIS IS STEVE’s AND HIS LAWYER and THEIR OPINION – THE JUDGE SIGNED IT BECAUSE HE IS TAKING HER TO COURT OVER THE GAG ORDER AND don’t want her to continue to air his dirty LAUNDRY --- but sadly, that’s too late. What Mary said has been bad and damaging enough. Tom Joyner is all up in his business as well. He had Mary on the show to take a swat at Steve because he as well as others DO NOT CARE FOR him. I know he can FOREGET about pimping anything on Oprah ‘s show and we are GLAD Hope Steve stocks up on bread and butter ---- because he is going from sugar to shyt and Bishop Long going to be plugging it from the back.

I agree, Mary's point would

I agree, Mary's point would have been more valid if she had claimed this at the actual time of being homeless, she could have done an interview from the streets or a shelter, that is homeless! The time frame could mean she ran out of money & was back for more, as for Steve using black people, people use people PERIOD, I'm happy when any1 has a dream & pursues it, & achieves it. Yes white people did make Steve, we as blacks still are the ONLY race of people who refuse to support 1 another & the 1st to tear each other down. Ignorance has no color

Come on people, let's use

Come on people, let's use some common sense here. 1) Oprah turned him down for his own show and clearly it was not just because of Mary's word. Oprah hires a high-powered background investigation company to vet people. Obviously, what they found out, Oprah wasn't feeling and didn't want to expose her female audience to Steve Harvey. 2) If anyone watched the Wendy Williams show when she was talking about Steve and Mary's scandal, she had a sour face and said that she could write her own book about how dirty Steve Harvey is, 3) He had beef with all of the Kings of Comedy. Mary has been the only one brave enough to really come out and put him on blast. Everyone cannot be lying about what a backstabbing devil he is. He is so concerned about this "image" he is putting out there. If you have to keep on shutting people down so that they won't talk (just like that Terry chick who wrote that book and he shut her down), that in and of itself, should speak volumes about him.

LOL - exactly. People forgot

LOL - exactly. People forgot about the author who's "based on a true story" book was endorsed by Oprah - only for her to later learned that it was based on a lie. Or how she rescinded Bebe Winan's invite to serve as a talent judge based on the domestic violence charge...yet the charges were dropped. I like Oprah, but her fame and $ does not make her infallible.

wow show me the glass houses

wow show me the glass houses that you guys live in so I can throw rocks at it. This is the problem with America. People are heartless and judgmental. I have worked in the Law field for over 10 years. The courts only protect rich criminals. But fact is fact this is a civial matter and unless they both lied at the time of the original divorce theres no way that everything that was listed is false. She had her chance to fight him the first time. But with all that aside its really none of my business I just dont get how yall can constantly sit on here and judge people for the things they have done like you all live perfect lives. Im so sick of these exs and baby mamas and jump offs supposedly "outing " people. Like really if they didnt have money or werent known who would they be running to, to tell these stories. We all need to grow up. When did it become cool to air all your business out in public. If you want wealth and the spot light earn it the right way. Not off of someone elses name or mistakes. How does that make you look. At the end of the day everyone needs to take responsibility for there part in what ever situation is taken place and handle it like an adult.

Okay I tried to stay out of this BUT... Why the gag order Steve? I will honestly have to say I like listening to you at work because it reallys is a stress reliever....mostly due to Nephew Tommy LOL.... BUT.....It just seems you are beginning to be a bit too greedy and arrogant...I was never on anyone's team, but that woman is hurting and yet again you took advantage of her once again in round one......Let's stop making this out to be a 'crazy' woman and recognize this is the between the people who HAVE vs the Have nots and the "Haves" have temporarily prevailed....sad but true. Don't get too cocky Steve...the non 'snow job' people know what you're our doing....you may have fooled or paid off a judge but the truth will reveal itself... I think most of the backlashing is from the people who thought you were legit...and now feel betrayed.. NO ONE likes being lied to or deceived....

The gag order is put in place

The gag order is put in place to prevent exactly what she is doing right now. To keep the spouse from airing out any details from their marriage. And its not just in Steve Harvey's divorce that a gag order is in place. Tiger Woods has one. And also Shaquille O'neal had one put on Shaunie when her show started. She's not even allowed to speak on him on the show. So its not just something thats out of the ordinary.

I was wondering the same

I was wondering the same thing....What is the purpose of the gag order if there is nothing to hide or dishonest about what Former Mrs. Harvey said. I don't really care for Steve Harvery anyway. I don't listen to his show on the radio. So its whatever. I wish them all the best and praying for all parties.

1. Celebrities must always

1. Celebrities must always guard their image because it is too easy for the public to believe the worst whether true or not and dmage control can be a beast. 2. A spouse has access to your inner most confidences...not wanting everyone to know every little detail of your personal life doesn't mean you've done anything wrong. One just may feel like it's none of ya'll business.
