Steve Harvey and wife Marjorie speak out amid cheating rumors

Television personality Steve Harvey and wife Marjorie are insisting they’re “fine” amid the “foolishness and lies” about them online.

On social media last week, users circulated unsubstantiated reports that Marjorie was seeking to end her 16-year marriage to Steve after she was caught being unfaithful to the “Family Feud” host, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Specifically, the rumors alleged that Marjorie was seeking a $200-million divorce settlement after cheating on Steve with the couple’s bodyguard and chef, the Los Angeles Times adds.

Steve addressed the buzz over the weekend as he spoke at the Atlanta business event Invest Fest.

“I’m fine. Marjorie fine,” the 66-year-old said, per the Times. “I don’t know what y’all are doing, but find something else to do, ‘cause we fine. Lord, have mercy.”

He went on: “Sometimes … you wanna respond, but I ain’t got no time for rumor and gossip. God been good to me. I’m still shining.”

On Sunday, Marjorie shared a blog post titled “How to Handle Being Lied About” with her 3.1 million Instagram followers.

“My husband and I don’t usually stop to address all the foolishness and lies that have been spread about us,” she added in her caption. “However, to whom much is given, much is required. I understand that with my platform comes some sort of responsibility to those that may not be as strong as we are. Read and share this with your loved ones that may not know how to properly cope. God Bless all of you.”

Steve and Marjorie met at a comedy club in 1990, reconnected years later, and married in 2007, according to People.

“Marjorie changed the way I existed,” Steve told People in 2012. “I’d never been in a healthy adult relationship. I’d never been loyal, I’d never been fully respected.”

“We’re best friends,” Marjorie added. “It’s the first time either of us has had someone we can talk to about everything.”

Steve has three children from his first marriage to Marcia Harvey — twin daughters Brandi and Karli and son Broderick — and son Wynton from his second marriage to Mary Shackelford. Marjorie came into the relationship with three children from a previous marriage — Morgan, Jason, and Lori — whom Steve later legally adopted.
