A Texas court has ruled in favor of Steve Harvey, allowing him to clear up recent allegations made by his ex-wife Mary.
Steve’s lawyer announced that the comedian has been granted a temporary injunction against several YouTube videos of Mary Harvey that took the Internet by storm last month.
On top of that, the judge allowed Steve to set the record straight on several allegations Mary leveled against Steve by releasing information that proves she was lying.
For example, Steve said that Mary could not have been left destitute by him because she was paid $40,000 a month from 2005 to March of 2009–and that she received another $1.5 million! Mary was also awarded three homes in her divorce from Steve, so she wasn’t exactly tossed out into the streets as she had claimed.
As far as their son Wynton is concerned, court documents show that Steve was granted primary custody of him. That came after Mary sent Wynton to Steve without notice. All of these facts line up with what Mary’s former assistant stated a couple weeks ago.
And Steve made sure to clear his current wife’s name as well. Mary had accused Marjorie Harvey of actively pursuing Steve while he was still married to Mary.
"The 2005 divorce of Steve and Mary Harvey was granted on the grounds of irreconcilable differences," the statement read, "and his current wife was not named in the original divorce proceeding nor was she the cause of the marital break-up."
Mary and Steve are now due in court on March 10 for a contempt of court hearing, when it will be decided whether Mary should be punished for violating her gag order.
