Steve Harvey has secured a major legal victory against his ex-wife.
TMZ reported that a judge threw out Mary L. Vaughn’s $60 million lawsuit against her ex-husband, in which she claims to have suffered from “prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering” during their relationship. She also said the alleged emotional abuse caused her to attempt suicide.
The Los Angeles judge tossed the case because he said it should be handled by a judge in Texas, where the divorce took place.
Harvey, 61, wed Vaughn in 1996, two years after splitting from his wife of 14 years, Marcia Harvey. Harvey and Vaughn endured a nasty divorce in 2005, two years before he tied the knot with his third — and current — wife Marjorie Bridges.
