This is so horrible, and we’re not really sure what to think.
Steve Harvey’s ex-wife Mary Harvey and their 11-year-old son accused the comedian of beating the boy after he lied about turning in his homework. The school called their home to report what had happened, and Steve allegedly turned on his son.
However, Harvey was cleared on Thursday, when Mary was held in contempt for “leaking sealed information” to the press about what went down, and tossed her in the clink for 30 days.
What’s weird is what actually happened though. Police reports showed that the boy had bruising on his buttocks, right thigh, and cuts on his leg. The boy told the cops that his dad beat him with a belt and the kind of paddle board they use in fraternities, and he had difficulties urinating for days after.
Seems harsh for a kid just lying about his homework! Or for any reason!
The Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services looked into the incident, and according to Harvey’s rep, they decided that:
"Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk … the case is closed without further investigation.”
Everything about this story sounds terrible and totally weird!
What do U make of it?!
