Steve Harvey personally set the record straight while speaking at Invest Fest 2023 in Atlanta on Sunday about recent rumors regarding his personal life.
The television host, 66, whose daughter Lori Harvey joined Kendall Jenner and pals during a trip to Cabo, addressed rumors that his wife, Marjorie Bridges, 58, allegedly cheated on him with the couple’s bodyguard and personal chef.
In a now-viral TikTok, the star could be seen speaking on stage in front of a large crowd and stated, ‘Before I get started, just let me say, I’m fine. Marjorie’s fine,’ followed by cheering from the audience.
‘I don’t know what y’all doing, but find something else to do ’cause we fine. Lord have mercy. Man,’ Harvey expressed, later adding, ‘I ain’t got no time for rumors and gossip. God’s been good to me, I’m still shining.’
The cheating allegations notably first started earlier this week on X – formerly known as Twitter – and quickly went viral.
Steve and Marjorie first crossed paths back in 1990, but didn’t tie the knot until 17 years later in 2007.
Upon their marriage, he adopted Marjorie’s three children from her previous relationship: 26-year-old model Lori, Morgan and also Jason.
Before saying ‘I do’ to his current wife, the game show host was previously married to Mary Shackelford from 1996 until 2005. They share son, Wynton. His first marriage was to Marica Harvey from 1981 through 2004. They welcomed twins Brandi and Karli, as well as son Broderick.
During a past interview with People in 2012, Steve gushed about Marjorie and admitted that she has ‘changed the way he existed.’
‘I’d never been in a healthy adult relationship. I’d never been loyal, I’d never been fully respected,’ he continued to the outlet at the time.
Marjorie has also weighed in on their blended family and raising seven children while talking to People in 2016. ‘When you’re dealing with a blended family, everyone is coming from a place of broken.’
‘We knew this was right. But I just told them, “Everyone is included. Everyone has access to their parents. Whatever you didn’t have before, don’t let that interfere with what you can have now.” Now, we’re Mom and Dad to everybody.’
However, their large family doesn’t stop at just their kids, but the couple are also grandparents to seven grandchildren.
Steve also recently jumped to Twitter on Friday and apologized for the ‘unfunny comic’ tweet that was posted on X, which he explained was posted on his account by a staff member.
‘🗣️ I’m personally addressing this,’ Harvey wrote on August 25.
The video was taken from the waist up and showed The Celebrity Family Feud host wearing a white short sleeve shirt and a green cargo-patterned sun hat, which came with two black strings on it.
Harvey stood outside on the green grass area and in front of a white fence as natural sunlight streamed down on him.
In the video, which is 56-seconds long, the star apologized for a since-deleted post on his X account, which asked his followers to name the ‘ comedian that they didn’t find funny at all.’
Although the tweet (since-deleted) was made on Harvey’s account, the television host explained that he didn’t personally write and post it. Rather, it was a staff member of his who wrote the tweet.
Somebody works for me on my Twitter put a statement out that was totally negative. I gotta take responsibility for it ’cause they work for me. But the engagement was talking about ‘name a comedian you don’t think is funny.’ Why would I do something like that?” he said in a video response.
Like several celebrities do, Harvey also has people who work for him specifically to handle his social media accounts.
Harvey also stated that he would never post a tweet like the one that the staff member posted on the television host’s X account, explaining that it didn’t match his brand.
‘My whole brand is to be motivational, and I’m gonna turn around a say something like that? …. I’m all about positivity. I would’ve never done nothing like that,’ Harvey stated.
He wrapped his video up, revealing how angry he was over the whole ordeal regarding the tweet.
‘I’m so pissed off right now, man,’ he went on. ‘Talkin’ about, “I was trying to get some engagement.” Okay, okay, you trying to get some employment, too…Now I gotta come on here and do a damn selfie. So here it is: I’m sorry, man. My bad, y’all. Won’t happen again though.’
