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.

I don't care what a court

I don't care what a court says. He did exactly what she said. They are using legalese to say she's a liar, but we all know that just because a document says "irreconcilable differences" can mean I'm tired of the cheating and lying.

You black people have to be

You black people have to be some of the most igorant idiots on the planet. I swear, I am ashamed, this is not rocket science. He may have cheated, we don't know, but the court basically said, the order was for her to be paid $40,000 per month, gain three homes and recieve a lumpsum payments, these are public court docs, no if's ands or buts. The court also says that she is the one that sent the child to live with him, without notice. They would not have lifted the Gag order on him to clear his name without solid proof of what he was saying. I understand that a lot of you are in the hood sitting behind a computer, but your ignorance is ridiculous. Please go out and get an education, and if you say you are not in the hood, then I even more ashamed, because no well rounded, logical, educated person would not be able to understand what these documents are saying. Not to mention she was ordered to pay court cost, never happens unless you are proven guilty. I mean damn there is no way that a race of people could be this foolish and ignorant, THIS IS SIMPLY NOT ROCKET SCIENCE. Is she hurt? yes, Is she mad because she is seeing Steve on Oprah and on Essence with his new wife? Yes, but did she lie about these things? Yes, The court didn't make this up yesterday, this is record, Steve and his people had to show that he carried out all of the orders of the court, and the court had to agree with it. It's simple, did you get the money? did you get the houses? did you put your son on the plain without telling your ex-spouse? SMDH.

Marjorie, Steve is that you? All this proves is that Steve is continuing to bully her in court. Hi lawyer is an ex-judge and I am sure she knows the judge personally. She is using her power to continue to get Steve's money. Ans she had better stock up caus ethis is not over. We blacks are not going to spend any more money with Steve and Lady Heroin.

Educate yourself first

Educate yourself first Marjorie, the lawyer statement basically confirms what Mary said was in the settlement but she never received ANY of the settlement. Yes she received $40,000 a month but this was just enough so Steve could lie to the judge then have the case sealed then once sealed she no longer received support monthly nor what was in the settlement. Why don't you asked someone waiting on child support from a dead beat parent (there are dead beat mothers too) and asked them the difference from the court "awarding" them monthly payments and the other parent paying it. Mary stated this was their settlement but Steve NEVER honored the agreement, now she can bring the proof to THIS court of her suit in 2007 showing she had to sue but STILL have not received the original settlement. Come back when you learn the difference between someone being "awarded" a judgment and receipt of the actual award. BTW heard the lady that wrote the original Act like a lady Think like a man in 2003 is now gearing up to sue Steve as her title was copyrighted and he plagiarized the book too. Ms. Edmonds tried to keep it on the down low too, now the light is on in the room he can't hide now.

Why would she get child

Why would she get child support when she didn't have custody. She put him on a plane to go to steve's without even telling steve that he was on his way. What type of mother does that???

They have the facts right in front of them but refuse to take them as such. They just can't admit that Mary lied to make Steve look bad because they really want to believe he was who they thought he was. So sad

I agree with you 100%. BEING

I agree with you 100%. BEING AWARDED MONEY DOES NOT MEAN YOU EVER COLLECTED IT!!! Mary Harvey said in an interview on the radio, that Steve gave her $40,000 per month, for 10 months and then quit paying her. I don't believe she ever received the 1.5 million. How was she supposed to pay for the houses and the property taxes once Steve cut her off??? And what about the EMAILS BETWEEN MARJ-WHORIE AND STEVE!!! WHAT ABOUT THE TEXT MESSAGES??? They can lie all they want, but I believe Steve was cheating on Mary with Lady H. Mary also said on the radio that she agreed to keep quiet and to make a quick, fast, quiet divorce in order to protect his public image. Which then makes sense as to why the divorce filing said 'IRRENCILABLE DIFFERENCES. Mary said they had agreements, which Steve reniged on after the divorce. I don't believe he made good on any of the divorce settlement with her.

Wow...some of u folks watch

Wow...some of u folks watch way to much "housewives of" where-ever reality tv shows. I wonder if the thought of selling one of those houses to meet her financial needs ever crossed her mind. I guess not when ur so filled with spite and vindictiveness and feel that someone else should be taking care of u for the rest of ur life. And honestly, wouldn't the court find Stevie in contempt if he didn't do as they requested? Ur talking about a man willing to take a chance and go to jail rather than obey the court. And, in regards to Majorie, who really knew where the marriage was between Steve and Mary at that time. Some of us really need to stop treating other folks lives as if they are the ones who get to dictate the out some, like some fake soap-opera.

The court gave Mary a date of

The court gave Mary a date of March 11,2001 to show proof of Steve not honoring the settlement which is WHY the lawyer published this statement FIRST thing this morning to try to hide the fact HE NEVER HONORED the settlement. If she lied about this in TX she would be in jail or fined a HUGE amount but she was not, so now STEVE has to prove he honored the settlement which he can't since she took him to court in December 2007 for this reason.

I agree. All people see is

I agree. All people see is she got 3 houses and 3 million and are like she being greedy. Steve gave her 3 BILLS that she obvisiously couldn't afford. Why didn't he give her the cash equivalent? Since he was in such a giving mood. I hate to say this because I don't like speaking for other people but it just sound like He knew she didn't have any business sense and he used it against her because he knew she would fail. He knew should couldn't afford those houses. It didn't take a rocket scientist to see that one coming. Why didn't he keep the houses himself? WTH was she gonna do with THREE houses. She couldn't sell them. Look at the economy. Yet I still haven't heard her ask for money from him.

Agree! Steve has the money, resources, PR Represenatives, and powerful lawyers to destroy Mary. I think Mary knew what would happen and she was sick and tired of being sick and tired. She put everything out there that had been built up. No, I am glad Mary went public because all things done in darkness will come to light.

(1) divorce in 2005. paid

(1) divorce in 2005. paid $40,000/month until March 2009 and then paid a lump sum of $1.5 million; that is $3,420,000.00 which is a lot, however it doesn't state what she and Steve income was per moth so not sure if this was enough to continue the life style she had grown use to durning the marriage. (2) Mary Harvey was awarded three (3) homes in their property settlement; Again....how much was the up keep of these properties? Did the up keep of each one help use up the almost the $3,420, 000.00 settlement and how much where they worth? Could they be sold to help support her lifesytle that she had grown use to durning the marriage or was there a claused that stated couldn't be sold unless Steve had first bid? (3) Mr. Harvey is the primary custodian of their 13 year old son, whom Mary Harvey willingly put on an airplane to his father. Again when was he sent to live full time with Steve and the reason, couldn't she not continue to support him in the manner he was use to? Why didn't Steve know he wasn't coming was he not talking to his ex regarding the welfare of his child to know he wasn't coming, if so how could he than know if she was able to afford the lifestyle he was use to? (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.....That doesn't mean they weren't fooling around durning the marriage and just mean she was name as a reason for the breakup and truth be told mose states don't allow cheating as a cause for it is hard to prove that is why most state just allow "irreconcilable differences " as the reason. I'm not for Mary and I have NOTHING against Steve. Steve will have his day and court to prove that she is lying that above is what was spelled out by his lawyers to make him look good. By chance when it is all said in done and she is proven to be a lier then she should apoloized first to her son and than to Steve. Until then it's his side, her side and the truth (which I'm sure the world will never truely know)

So those of us who use logic when reading and recognize fact from fiction are paid goons? Mary provided no EVIDENCE to prove her claims she just said it happened and I guess someone like you believed her because you were so eager to find something to hate Steve for. Men lie, women lie numbers don't and the FACT that she got $3+ million in the divorce contradicts everything she said about Steve leaving her broke and homeless. So yeah, we know the deal...MARY LIED!

Food for thought: what's the

Food for thought: what's the mortgage and upkeep + taxes on 3 homes. Easily $8000/mo for $1 million house. Even more forore expensive house. Multiply by 3. And $3 million couldn't have paid them off. Not sure if she mentioned money, but I could see her still being broke with just enough to cover expenses. I'm neither Mary or Steve but just stating what the settlement doesn't say much if your bills are more than income.

Bottom line - I could accept

Bottom line - I could accept relationship advice from a man or woman that has had a succesful relationship for many yearts. Taking advice from a man that has been married three times, married a woman who was married to drug dealers. He says he is a Christian but mixes astrology with his beliefs - something is just wrong with him. I would go as far to say - he is so Christian - that he would take a "crazy woman" the mother of his so to court. Something does not ad uyp here!

This woman received 3 million

This woman received 3 million dollars and she had the nerve to cry that Steve left her broke and destitute? That is outrageous! The fact that people are still defending her instead of looking at the facts is crazy. I don't care about Steve Harvey and I don't care about Mary Harvey, but when something as ridiculous as this happens it just blows my mind that people would stick up for a woman who is now a proven liar. It has been 6 years since her divorce...perhaps she should have put some of that 3 million dollars towards some therapy to get over the hurt she still has instead of turning herself into a one woman circus.

There is a BIG difference

There is a BIG difference between "AWARDED" and "RECEIPT", he never followed through on the settlement, hell someone can "award" you $25M but until they PAY you, you cannot spend that money. Same thing here, it was awarded which Mary stated from the beginning and all interviews after but he NEVER FOLLOWED through he used the "As long as I owe you you will never be broke" old adage.

I never heard her say that he filed bankruptcy in order not to meet the obligations to her

Mary DID take him back to

Mary DID take him back to court because he NEVER paid her, this was done in December 2007 when he knew he was facing jail time he once again settled, sealed then reneged. If you note she ONLY says what was in the divorce settlement in 2005 & the money in March 2009 leaving out it was property Mary sold to him NOT part of the divorce settlement. It is her JOB to make Steve look like an angel and Mary the devil, but all this was on blast in 2007 & 2008 when he reneged on the agreement. She sold the property to him BECAUSE of legal fees from this suit and to survive as she was broke. You can check this on the Harris County court site if you want proof, I did.

You are homeless because she probably has lost her houses to taxes.. Ain't no telling.. Why come and do all of this because you are NOT in the light... I don't see anyone on here that is defending her, talk about how she sent there son on a one way ticket with not advance notice to Steve.. So, I guess he is a sorry azz dad for raising his son on his own.. You people are crazy! When you go to court, the truth comes out.. But she knew it was going to be like this, because everything was already on paper!! When GOD blesses you, trust me, the enemy is close by trying to take that blessing away... GO STEVE! I'm praying for you all the way!!!! Some men are wrong, but in the case, you are right and GOD will place a protective shield over you and will bless you so, that these folks on here will feel it!!!

Good for Steve..The past is the past... It's not his fault that he's doing AWESOME and she probably isn't...Why after all these years is she speaking out now???? I know that she couldn't have walked away wtihout anything, especially since Steve was pretty well off back then when they divorced. There's no way that she didn't get her cut! Seems like she's more mad that she can't turn on the radio, change the channel or go into a bookstore without hearing his name or seeing his face...This must be eating her alive... It feels like she's more interested in destroying his name with his new audience... Misery LOVES company & her bitter supporters are all the company she's going to need after the State of Texas is done with her!

This is all very silly.

This is all very silly. Sounds like my divorce and the lying that went on along with the payoffs and kickbacks. The woman had a gag order (on her divorce settlement, that she violated.) She knew she had a gag order and intentionally she violated it because she had something to say about how triflin this mess really is. It didn't do her any good, it just made her seem like a liar but I understand where she is coming from (been there and done that). People (not gender specific) who are dirty will do dirty things to make sure nothing ever comes to light. Mary will see tough times ahead but in the end it will all come out. I feel for their child he is the one who will have to carry this to his grave because I'm sure he has a gag order also.

You have a nerve. Men rule

You have a nerve. Men rule this world and feel women are here to entertain their little brains. Men can do whatever they want with a woman and her anatomy; take it, lie to get it, cheat with it, abuse it, sell it even kill it and if he is set with the right folks can get away with it.But if a woman does the same either to get back at the sorry trash she is wrong and bashed and made to look like a liar. So don't go talking about a black woman's problem because this isn't about race. Men do what they want period. Women have had to go from housewives, to breadwinners to being a single parent etc because of the evolution of the male species into what it is today. Everything is about sex, money and swagger. And the very few that are decent have went the other way and pretend they are white. And you are taking sides here. There was a gag order placed on this divorce for a reason. She said f*ck it and let it all out. I'm sure she got paid something..but from the door I'm also sure it wasn't enough and he kinda threw her away like a piece of trash. And for you to say "you get hurt and can't let ur ego go" So what your saying is what I'm pointing out. Men screw over women, leave them hurt and expect us to just take it? F*ck that! Be men, protect, provide and parent your kids, stop thinking with your D!cks! If things don't work out then have enough decency to help her on her feet without all the drama and make sure the child is okay. Enough said.

You know what's so weird

You know what's so weird about this case is. I live here in Texas, and my question is why he would take a case to Collins County, Texas out in the boonies. That's out there near Plano and McKinney, Texas. I didn't know Steve lived that far out. Why not bring it to Dallas, Texas. So you telling me he lives and filed in Collins County, but does business also in Houston, Texas.
