Poor thang! Steve Harvey’s ex-wife isn’t having a very Merry Christmas. As BOSSIP previously reported the two have been embroiled in legal issues but now we’ve learned she’s been arrested and won’t be out for some time!
According to BET.com reports:
Steve Harvey’s ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge, has been arrested in contempt of court, Fox 4 in Dallas-Fort Worth reports. Woolridge, who was married to Harvey for 16 years before their marriage ended in divorce in 2005, is said to have leaked information about the divorce proceedings in a series of online videos, in direct violation of a gag order.
Harvey and Woolridge were embroiled in a bitter custody battle over their son, who is now 16 years old, in which Harvey prevailed. “Am I angry? Yes,” Vaughn told Fox Dallas-Fort Worth. “I missed six years of my son’s life and I can’t get those years back.”
“I’m just a mother who wants to have access to my son without interference,” she said. “I’m tired of getting pulled down to McKinney courthouse every time I say ‘Boo.’ I’m not going to be silenced.”
Harvey has custody of the couple’s teenage son.
The videos posted by Woolridge “contain false, misleading, derogatory, defamatory, disparaging and malicious information about Mr. Harvey, his wife, and children by his ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge,” reads a statement from Harvey’s attorney.
Woolridge is set to be released from jail on January 17.
But Mary wasn’t playing about not being silenced. Homegirl has an exclusive interview in the new issue of the National Enquirer where she accuses Steve of BIGAMY!!!
It’s all-out war between beloved “Family Feud” host STEVE HARVEY and his ex-wife Mary – and The ENQUIRER has ALL of the shocking details!
In a blockbuster exclusive interview, Mary unloaded a barrage of claims that are guaranteed to stun fans of the amiable TV personality.
Mary blasts Harvey as a serial cheater, child abuser and bigamist – and she wants to see him tossed into jail for cheating her out of her fair share of his $100 million fortune.
“For what he’s done to me, I want to see Steve Harvey behind bars!” Mary told The ENQUIRER.
But Steve hasn’t taken her attacks lying down, and Mary was the one who ended up in jail after a judge ruled she was in contempt of court on Dec. 19. Now, Steve wants Mary put away for up to 28 years for allegedly violating gag orders.
Still, a source told us: “Steve’s fans haven’t had a clue about the pressure he’s been under.”
Do you feel badly for Steve’s ex-wife or is this her just desserts for badmouthing him?
