Steve Harvey and wife Marjorie have reacted to recent divorce rumors that hit their marriage. The couple, who has been married for over a decade now, hilariously debunked the reports as they staged a fake banter for an Instagram video when they attended the Kentucky Derby at the Churchill Downs racetrack in Louisville on Saturday, May 4.
Steve and Marjorie posted the video, which was made with the help of Steve’s son Broderick Harvey Jr., on their respective social media page. In the video, Broderick approached his father and stepmother to ask them about the rumors that they were filing for divorce.
“I heard that, too. You leaving me?” Steve asked his wife. “Well, if you leaving, when was you gonna tell me?” Acting equally confused, Marjorie responded, “I didn’t know I was leaving. I just found out I was leaving.” She mockingly added, “Well, Stevie, when we supposed to be getting one?”
Steve also addressed the reports that he’s quietly selling his assets ahead of the supposed divorce. “They say we broke, too. We ain’t got no money. You gotta take all that back,” the “Family Feud” host said to his wife, referring to her designer dress that she wore to the 145th annual sporting event. “Ya’ll got a filter on this where we can change the color where it looks like she ain’t wearing it?”
Playing along with the veteran TV host, Marjorie asked her husband, “All the money? Did you spend all of it or did I spend all of it?”
Steve captioned the video, “My son @bharv came to me and @marjorie_harvey with some news… Aww say it ain’t so.” Marjorie echoed it on her own post, “Awww say it ain’t so,” adding a cry laughing emoji.
Marjorie also shared a video showing her and Steve at the Kentucky Derby.
Radar Online previously reported that Steve was quietly selling off his assets to pay his wife Marjorie a whopping divorce settlement. “Since January, he’s put four of his properties in Texas on the market and sold two for an estimated $2 million! … Sources also reveal he’s transferred ownership of another Texas property from his and wife Marjorie’s name into his own name,” the site claimed.
A source additionally told the site, “Steve learned a lesson from his drawn-out divorce from [second wife] Mary. It took him years to get their properties into his name.”
The report went on suggesting that Steve would be left without money when Marjorie left him. “Steve is desperate to stay on television. He supports all six of their children in fine style and Marjorie is blowing through his cash,” so the source said. “He’s even admitted to pals that he needs to work things out with her or he’ll be left with nothing, which is insane. He’s been on TV for 25 years!”
Steve and Marjorie have been hit with numerous split rumors since they got married in 2007. Addressing the relentless rumors, the 62-year-old comedian said during a press conference last fall, “I’m sick of it. They act like I don’t have family. They act like my kids can’t read. They don’t care. They just go out to destroy people with no facts behind it.”
