Essie Berry Widow of “What’s Happening” star Fred “Re Run” Berry is suing the TV Host in a $5 million civil suit for stalking, harassment, witness tampering, civil rights violations and intimidation.
Berry pitched Mary Vaughn, Steve Harvey’s ex-wife on a reality show called “Widows, Wives and Ex-Celebrity Wives.” Berry says she was unaware that as a part of Vaughn’s divorce a non-disclosure agreement was included. Berry says Harvey put a gag order in place once he found out about the potential deal and accused Berry of being an “extortionist” and a “co-conspirator”
Berry says Harvey’s has made her “fear for her life” and the reality show offers have been tabled because of Harvey. Berry says Harvey has done “irreparable” damage to her reputation as a civil rights activist. Berry says she wants $5 million and an apology from Harvey.
Do you think Steve Harvey is guilty of what Essie Berry claims? Did you suffer a messy divorce?
