The claims of Steve Harvey’s wife Marjorie cheating on him went viral from a website called GHPage.

The website also stated that Harvey allegedly cheated on Marjorie in 2021.

This followed with a video of when Marjorie claimed she would trade Steve for a pool boy when she appeared on an episode of Family Feud.

Also, unconfirmed report suggests Marjorie has filed for a divorce from the comedian in a Los Angeles County Superior Court on July 1, 2023, citing irreconcilable difference following this series of cheating scandals from both sides.

She is seeking half of Steve’s net worth in divorce settlement. Harvey is currently worth $400 million, meaning Elaine is asking for $200 million.

There have been claims that Harvey has responded to the claims made about his wife’s cheating. However, the rumors are untrue and he has yet to issue a statement or acknowledge these claims.
