Steve Harvey Opens Up About Marriage Woes with Wife Majorie

iHeartRadio Music Festival Day1

I know, the title caught you by surprise- 

Steve Harvey, Relationship guru and Media titan, had marital problems and was teetering on the brink of divorce from his gorgeous wife Majorie. 

Sister 2 Sister:

There was a time when Steve Harvey’s people thought his marriage might not work out.

Steve seemingly can’t say enough great things about his wife Marjorie Harvey whenever the topic of relationships come up. However, not everyone in his circle has always been so complimentary.

He revealed to Essence that not long after their wedding the comedian-turned-talk show host was slammed with a $20 million tax lien. The lien came after it was discovered that Steve’s accountant had been holding onto years worth of the funny man’s tax returns without filing them.

At the time, the people in Steve’s camp advised him to keep the devastating news from Marjorie. “She’ll leave you,” Steve recalled them saying. “This is the happiest we’ve ever seen you. …Nobody is going to stick around with this kind of mess.”

Ignoring their advice, Steve decided to be honest with Marjorie about the financial situation because he was confident in her dedication to him.

“I said, ‘If this woman leaves me over this, I will be the most surprised man on planet Earth,’” Steve shared. “ Marjorie stayed.”

No one could be more thankful about that than he is because he doesn’t know that he’d be where he is today if she’d left.

“Every great man has a woman… I didn’t say successful man, I said great man,” said Steve. “Do you think Dr. Martin Luther King was anything without Coretta? You take Michelle out of Barack Obama’s equation, and he is a whole other dude out there.

Another reason why Mr. Harvey is my role model. Perseverance.
