Social media has been awash with unconfirmed reports that American talk show host Steve Harvey is divorcing his wife Marjorie. According to several accounts on X, Marjorie cheated on her famous husband with his bodyguard and personal chef, but these are just unsubstantiated claims at this point If you believe what the internet is saying, Marjorie is also going for half of Steve’s $400 million fortune as part of her divorce settlement.
While all indications point to this being a fake news story concocted by those who have way too much time on their hands, we’ll have to wait for at least one of the parties to either confirm or deny it. To add to the lack of credibility of the divorce claims, none of the major publications have picked up the story, which would certainly be worth reporting.
The couple has been married for 16 years, but had initially met in years before Harvey’s rise to stardom as a comic. According to reports, Steve met his wife in 1990 when he was still a struggling comedian and dated briefly. At the time, he had apparently felt he wasn’t in a good financial position to take care of Marjorie.
They married in 2007, two years after Steve ended his second marriage. The radio host has seven children (four biological children and three stepchildren). When the couple got married, he adopted Marjorie’s children.
