Comedian Steve Harvey has won a court injunction against his ex-wife after she appeared in a series of online videos and openly attacked the funnyman for allegedly cheating on her throughout their marriage.
The 54 year old split from Mary Harvey in 2005 after 16 years of marriage and now she's demonising him in three viral videos, which have been posted on YouTube.com.
In the footage, she claimed the comic had "turned my son against me" and "had me evicted from my house".
She also alleged Harvey's current wife, Marjorie Bridges, was his mistress when she was married to the comedian.
An attorney for Harvey, who has since become a literary relationship guru, has dismissed Mary's claims, branding her accusations "false", "misleading" and "derogatory".
The funnyman's legal eagle has obtained an injunction banning Mary from airing out their problems in the media and on any kind of social networking site.
In the papers, filed in Texas, Harvey insists Mary was not left homeless or broke. He contends she was awarded three properties in their divorce settlement, as well as $40,000 (£26,670)-a-month in spousal and child support.
The injunction will remain in effect at least until their next hearing on 10 March. »

After the lengthy, vitriolic YouTube-enabled smear campaign the funnyman's ex-wife ran against him last month (alleging he cheated on her, evicted her from their home, left her penniless and turned his son against her in the wake of their 10-year marriage), the Family Feud host nobly managed to hold his fire, promising instead that "the truth's gonna come out." Well, guess what? It took a little while, but the truth has finally emerged. You see? It's behavior like this that gives vindictive ex wives a bad name. As it happens, Harvey can thank the courts for helping clear his name, as they temporarily lifted a gag »
