Steve Harvey is fighting back after his ex wife, Mary Harvey, attacked him on YouTube last month, claiming he was a chronic cheater who took their son and left her with nothing after they split.

In order to set the record straight, Steve Harvey asked to lift the gag order placed on their 2005 divorce proceedings. He also released a statement on Monday disputing his ex's allegations.

According to their divorce settlement, Mary Harvey was paid $40,000 a month until March 2009 and then given a lump sum of $1.5 million. In addition, she was awarded three homes.

Regarding their son Wynton, Steve Harvey was awarded primary custody and the 13-year-old was willingly sent to his father, according to the statement.



As to accusations of infidelity, their divorce was granted due to "irreconcilable differences." The document also states that his current wife, Marjorie Bridges, "was not named in the original divorce proceeding nor was she the cause of the marital break-up."
