We have to say, we have know idea what went on between these two, but we really respect him for taking the high road during this ordeal!
Steve Harvey has responded himself to his former wife Mary's recent YouTube rants directed at the comedian, claiming that he was unfaithful to her and took her son away from her when they divorced, and thankfully, he seems to be keeping his take on the matter classy!
"My father always taught me, he'd say, ‘Son, there's three sides to every story—there's their side, your side and the truth.' I know the truth. My son is coming into the room crying. And that's what hurts me, why you would do this. And I don't even understand the purpose. I mean, I got you're mad, but [she's talking about] 12 years ago. That's what we're doin' now? The truth's gonna come out. Because once you go public, you allow people to start asking questions…I'm just more concerned about my son, who I happen to have total custody of. He doesn't deserve the questions. I've been famous a long time. I've dealt with this all before…But things will be dealt with in the proper fashion this time. A lot of it's lies. I don't want nobody to do nothing. Here's my job as a father to my son: I have taught him to just be respectful of his mother and women overall. What he can't do is see me making particular accusations and rants…and I'm not going to. It is still his mother and I'm his father, and it's my job to raise him right."
Wow! Well-said, bb!
We're happy to hear that your first priority is your son, as he should be for your wife as well!
It's not easy to keep your head held high, especially when someone who was such a big part of your life is taking such public low blows, but we ultimately think that this will only help your case!
Best of luck!
