Judge to Steve Harvey's Ex: No More Bad Mouthing

2/8/2011 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steve Harvey's ex-wife -- who's publicly accused the comedian of leaving her homeless -- was just ordered by a judge to shut her trap ... TMZ has learned.

0208_steve_mary_harvey_launch_bn

Steve won an injunction against his ex Mary Lee Harvey in Texas state court yesterday -- which bars her from slamming Steve in the media ... including YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and Twitter.

The gag order follows a number of incendiary videos Mary Lee recently posted about Steve on the Internet -- accusing him of leaving her homeless, stealing her wealth, and turning their son against her.

According to the court, Mary was NOT left homeless ... she was awarded THREE houses in their divorce -- and Steve did NOT take her money ... he was paying her $40k a month. 

The gag order stays in effect until at least the next hearing, which is set for March 10.

Can we get one of these Shut Up orders for my ex? We've been divorced for 14 years and he still manages to track me down every couple years. Then he tells all his friends what I'm doing and what a horrible person I am...on and on. UGH

Steve Harvey is still a liar and a cheater. Just because he gave Mary Harvey 40,000.00 a month, for 10 months means nothing. That is chump change when you are responsible, for paying, for 3 properties, plus your living. This includes mortgage, taxes, insurance, up keep on three properties.Please not forget the mortgage bust. They were probably not, worth anything once she finally received them legally 2 years later. I believe all this was added up to make the 1.5 million dollars. The 400 thousand, plus the value of the homes in 2005

This cheating fraud has appealed her award in the divorce. She has received nothing. If she had been given 3 houses, how was she going to keep them up? Don't let Harvey fool you; he's a dog. Why would this woman go public with facts that could be disproved so easily by court records? Until the appeals process of up, she gets nothing. Her son went to live with Steve because his mother was homeless.

THE TRUTH    


now
now wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this does not PROVE she lied TMZ!! this website got to be a little better and stupid than this! all that has been put in place in a damn injunction to STOP the youtube videos. As far as everything else...where is your proof?? 1. Mary admitted about putting the son on the plane. She stated she was depressed. She didnt lie about that so why lie about everything else?! 2. Steve's own brother spoke out on Mary's behalf! 3. Irreconcilable difference divorce decree DOES NOT mean there wasnt any infidelities you idiots!! He has the $ and the fame and he def needed his business to be kept quiet including her ass. You all already know that is the game played in hollywood. As far as the money and the houses go...I need an actual transcript to back that up. Did steve really have all that money back then?! lmao I'm just saying! But in all reality, there is something wrong with this story. Because if she was getting $40,000 a month and 3 homes she WOULD NOT been complaining and making false allegations! And why is she so destitute now??? And if she had the $ why in the world she CANNOT pay for an attorney?? People PLEASE read into the details and not only the alleged "details." Jury is still out on this one folks! YBF next time run all ur damn facts with some freaking evidence for your viewers...first!

And?!

So, he gives her money, so what? This so called "man of God" is as full of hypocritical BS as the next "man of God". He writes these books handing out advice to men and woman about RELATIONSHIPS!!??? Now, Steve THAT is funny coming from you!


He is a cheater. The wife he has now, was who Steve cheated with, and then she marries the guy and is on Dr. Phil like she clean hands or something?! Hello. It seems to me the first Ms. Steve isn't a liar about that.

steve and i lie.... a lot    

O BRAINER - I do not think Oprah's folks would have take Mary's word about Steve without some evidence. So did Mary just call up Oprah and say, Steve left me homeless, took my son and cheated on me with no evidence? Oprah just says, "Gee thanks for telling me this before I gave him his own show on my new network. Be for real. There is a lot more to this story. Is Mary scorned? Probably. Is Steve a cheater? Probably. It does not matter - he did not have to sue her. Steve should have done with Tom Joyner suggested - all she wanted was to see her son and get closure. OK - she was not asking for one dime. It was not about the MONEY - it was how he treated her.

No she was not asking for money because she already did that. She was trying to soil Steve's name. She lied to make him look bad. It worked for a minute. Now all the reasonable people know the truth and the only ones unwilling to face the fact that Mary is a bitter scorned woman are the people that hated Steve to begin with. They are using this Mary thing to justify hatred toward a person that don't even know personally.

If the $40K a month was for child support, then it does not count toward any payment to her. 3 houses at what value? It could be three crappy houses in Back Alley,TX that they bought years ago. And 1.5 million for how many years of marriage? Are you crazy? She got screwed no matter how you slice it!

You people r stupid. Just because the Judge ordered does not mean he paid. I have a court order for child support all day long does not mean he is paying. 2nd the do***ent is ammended because the orginal in 2005 gave her nothing but 1000.00 a month she got this order in 2007 after getting another lawyer and was going to sue for conflict of interest. So they came up with this. But Steve H never paid at all. So before you start calling the women a lier get the facts str8

Why is Steve Harvey on the radio in Calfornia, when he doesn't live here. He lives in Altanta. I am sure there are more talent radio disc jockey, here in Los Angeles. All these Disc Jockey out of work in California. This my opinion only.

Spelling & Grammar your another example of someone that will believe the woman by default, you don't care bout what the truth is, all you care about is blaming the man at all cost. All woman has to do is make a accusation and people like your will take her side by default. And by the way, you don't have to want money to have a motive, all you have to do is have the ability to want revenge.
