Harvey Wins $60M Lawsuit By Ex-Wife Who Claims He ‘Tortured & Murdered Her Soul’..Here’s Why

Posted On : January 5, 2018

Steve Harvey’s ex-wife, Mary Vaughn, has been putting him on blast heavily within the past year or so. In legal docs she filed in May 2017, she claimed that Harvey kept their then young son away from her. She also accused Steve of ‘torturing her and murdering her soul,’ plus much more.

As a result of the emotional duress Ms. Vaughn says she experienced from Harvey during their years-long marriage and after their divorce, she admittedly began to self-medicate and attempted suicide.

Apparently, there was also some sort of gag order Steve reportedly had Mary sign at the time of their divorce, but Mary stated, in the past, that she refuses to remain quiet about how Harvey has allegedly destroyed her life and turned their son against her.

That brings us to the current situation surrounding the pending $60 lawsuit Mary had against Steve. According to Radar Online, Mary’s just lost that battle, but not necessarily for reasons you may think. It had a lot to do with the state in which she chose to fight her battle against her ex-hubby, Steve. See details below..

Via RO: In a Dec. 15 order, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory Keosian said Mary Vaughn’s claims that Harvey caused her emotional distress during their marriage is a matter for a Texas court, where the former couple was actually divorced.

“Her claims for intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, and invasion of privacy, although vaguely stated, appear to arise from Harvey’s alleged infidelities during marriage and a later incident involving her arrest and gag order,” Keosian wrote in the Dec. 15 order. “The infidelity allegations would properly have been a matter for their martial dissolution proceeding, and the injustice of the gag order mat be taken up with the Texas court charged with implementing it. It is likewise apparent that Vaughn’s fraud claims arises from Harvey allegedly ‘dishonestly calculating for his advantage land, real estate, stocks,’ and other properties in their mutual division of property. Vaughn’s defamation and conversion claims also appear to arise from the same nucleus of facts.”

It’s also being reported that Mary Vaughn has not yet filed an opposition to the judge’s ruling over the $60M lawsuit:

Vaughn has not filed an opposition, but she won’t be able to amend her complaint either. In his three-page Dec. 15 ruling, Judge Gregory Keosian denied Vaughn an opportunity to amend her complaint, effectively shutting down the lawsuit.
