Steve Harvey: “The Truth’s Gonna Come Out”
“My father always taught me, he’d say, ‘Son, there’s three sides to every story—there’s their side, your side and the truth,’” comedian/author Steve Harvey said on his radio show yesterday in response to ex-wife Mary L. Harvey‘s highly publicized current tirade against him. “I know the truth. My son is coming into the room crying. And that’s what hurts me. Why you would do this? I don’t even understand the purpose. I mean, I got you’re mad, but [she's talking about] 12 years ago. That’s what we’re doin’ now?”
In her recent three-part video series, Mary accuses ex-husband Steve, 54, of being unfaithful throughout their marriage, shows actual letters from other women confessing affairs with her husband, talks about how she’s being sued by Harvey for apparently being the reason he didn’t get a show on Oprah‘s new OWN network and accuses him of taking their son away from her when the marriage ended.
Steve and Mary were married in 1996 and divorced in 2005. Their son Wynton was born in 1997.
“The truth’s gonna come out,” Harvey said yesterday. “Because once you go public, you allow people to start asking questions. I’m just more concerned about my son, who I happen to have total custody of. He doesn’t deserve the questions.
“I’ve been famous a long time,” he added. “I’ve dealt with this all before. But things will be dealt with in the proper fashion this time.”
Harvey’s attorney has said they plan to go after Mary “to rectify this matter to the full extent of the law,” calling her remarks and alleged revelations “false, misleading, derogatory,” etc.
