Steve Harvey’s ex-wife Mary Vaughn is suing the celebrity talk show host for $60 million, claiming that they allegedly suffered “prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering.”
The former couple’s marriage lasted from 1996 until their public divorce in 2005, which was two years prior to the Harvey’s third marriage to current wife, Marjorie Bridges. The 60-year-old “Family Feud” host was previously married to Marcia Harvey for 14 years before he wed Vaughn.

Court documents obtained by ET claimed that Vaughn “attempted suicide by self-medicating [in] an attempt to stop the pain” and claimed that Harvey and his lawyer allegedly caused “severe emotional distress” over the years.
ET added that Vaughn is also suing for alleged child endangerment, torture, kidnapping, breach of contract, conspiracy against the rights of the intentional infliction of emotional distress, and even “soul murder.”
The indictment was filed on Wednesday, not by a lawyer, but civil rights activist Miamifish Berry. She serves as Vaughn attorney.
Harvey’s lawyer Brandon R. Williams responded to the lawsuit on Friday.

“Mr. Harvey vehemently denies all allegations outlined in the lawsuit,” reads the statement sent to ET. “The complaint of merit less, frivolous and the allegations are completely false. We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the complaint.”
Vaughn was previously arrested in 2013 after a judge found her in contempt of court for violating the terms of a gag order on the divorce. She served 30 days behind bars.
She and Harvey share a child together, 19-year-old Wynton Harvey.
Reps for Vaughn and Harvey did not return a request from Fox News for comment.
