Rumors! Rumors! Rumors! Steve Harvey has denied that his wife, Marjorie Elaine Harvey, cheated on him.
On Sunday, August 27, the famed comedian, 66, addressed the crowd at Invest Fest 2023 in Atlanta and dismissed claims of his wife having an affair.
“Before I get started, just let me say, I’m fine. Marjorie’s fine,” Steve said in a TikTok video from the event.
“I don’t know what y’all doing, but find something else to do, ’cause we fine. Lord have mercy Man,” Steve added. “I ain’t got no time for rumors and gossip. God’s been good to me, I’m still shining,” he said.
The allegations concerning Steve and Marjorie, 58, began with YouTuber KEEM.
On August 26, he tweeted that Marjorie cheated on Steve “with the bodyguard and the personal chef.” He followed up with, “Allegedly that’s what the Internet is saying.”
The accusation rapidly went viral on social media, forcing Steve to publicly deny that his wife had an affair.
Steve has been married to Marjorie since 2007, and he is a stepfather to her three children, Morgan, 37, Jason, 32, and Lori, 26.
Marjorie is the stepmother of Steve’s four children from his first two marriages: twins Brandi and Karli, 41, Broderick, 32, and Wynton, 26. Before Marjorie, the Family Feud host was married to Marcia Harvey and Mary Shackelford.
In 1990, Steve met his third wife at a comedy club in Memphis. They hit it off immediately, but they didn’t start dating right away since Steve wanted to focus on his profession.
“Before a man can be of use to a woman…he’s got to know who he is, what he does, and how much he’s going to make,” he told Essence in 2014. In 2005, the couple reconnected and married two years later.
“Every great man has a woman,” Steve said. “I didn’t say successful man, I said great man. Greatness is when you’re the husband and father you’re supposed to be. When everyone surrounding you looks up to you, depends on you, and you come through for them. That’s greatness.”
