Steve Harvey’s daughter Lori Harvey has allegedly been charged with a hit and run and other misdemeanours, it has been reported.

The 23-year-old was reportedly arrested in October after hitting a parked car and attempting to flee the scene in West Hollywood, according to TMZ.

People now reports that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has confirmed they are charging Lori with one count of resisting, delaying, obstructing a peace officer, and one count of hit and run resulting in property damage.

Both are misdemeanour charges.

Lori is due to appear in court on 21 January for an arraignment and now possibly faces spending up to a year in prison if convicted.

Pictures of the reported accident obtained by TMZ show a large vehicle, alleged to be Lori’s G-Wagon, lying on its side right next to a Prius.

Police officers are said to have spotted Lori walking down a street nearby to the accident. Photos show her sitting on a pavement surrounded by three police officers.

Metro.co.uk has reached out to reps for comment.

Lori hit the headlines for other reasons last weekend after she and boyfriend Future went public with their romance.

The pair were first romantically linked in December after Lori was seen at the Mask Off rapper’s birthday party and spending the weekend together.

Over the weekend, Lori celebrated her 23rd birthday in Jamaica where she’s been joined by Future, Jordyn Woods and Normani.

Future, who was previously engaged to singer Ciara, shared a loved-up photo of him and Lori in a pool with the caption: ‘Life is good.’

Lori’s famous dad, Family Feud host Steve, was asked about their romance last week but replied: ‘I don’t know nothing about it.’

His daughter was previously said to have dated Diddy, while Future has six children from a number of past relationships, including son Future Zahir whom he shares with Ciara.

REPORT: Steve Harvey Cleared Of Child Abuse Charges

Steve Harvey has been cleared of child abuse allegations brought forth by his ex-wife and then 11-year-old son in 2008 of viciously beating the boy, TMZ reports.

Since Harvey and his ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge, divorced in 2005 after 16 years of marriage, the two have been in a bitter child custody battle that includes allegations of child abuse against their son, who is now 16. The divorce case is sealed and under a gag order, but Mary was arrested Thursday and held in contempt of court for allegedly leaking sealed information from that order to the media.

She is expected to be released next year, according to Fox 4 Dallas Fort Worth.

As for the child abuse allegations, Vaughn said in a police report that Harvey had gotten a call from their son’s school claiming that the boy had lied about a homework assignment. Harvey allegedly hit him with a belt and paddle, the kind used by fraternities, according to the police report obtained by TMZ. The cops took photos of the boy’s injuries, which showed bruises on his buttocks and legs. The boy claims that he had trouble urinating for days as a result of the beating.

The matter was referred to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. Vaughn, Harvey and other people were interviewed. The CPS results stated in part, …”Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk…the case is closed without further investigation…” Mrs. Woolridge was fully aware and informed of the results of the CPS Investigation.”

(Editor’s note: Mary’s last name is different in several news reports. TMZ has her last name as, “Harvey.” Us Weekly as it as,” Mary Lee Shackelford and Fox 4 has it as, “Mary Vaughn Woolridge.” NewsOne is going with Fox 4’s version.)

In an interview conducted by Fox 4 from a Colin County jail, in Texas, Vaughn told the news station that she did not violate the gag order. Here is part of that interview:

“I didn’t violate any court orders,” said Vaughn. “This is about ‘You’re not supposed to be talking to anybody about your divorce.’ That’s what they’re saying. I’m like, this is America.”

Vaughn says she showed up at court without an attorney because she can’t afford one, adding that Harvey was in court with a legal team and an entourage.

“I was not expecting a four hour long hearing without an attorney,” she said.

“Am I angry? Yes,” said Vaughn. “I missed six years of my son’s life and I can’t get those years back.”

Vaughn’s release date isn’t until Jan 17.

“I’m just a mother who wants to have access to my son without interference,” she said. “I’m tired of getting pulled down to McKinney courthouse every time I say ‘Boo.’ I’m not going to be silenced.”

Vaughn’s release date is Jan. 17. Harvey has custody of their son, who is now 16-years-old.

According to Us Weekly, the comedian is “currently married to his third wife, Marjorie Bridges. He and his first ex-wife, Marcia Harvey, are parents to twin daughters Brandy and Charlie, 31, and son Steve Jr., 22.”

Jim Townsend Ex Husband Of Marjorie Harvey Writing Tell-All Book

Our morning man Steve Harvey has been in the news lately with a lot of rumors circulating around him and his wife Marjorie.

Outside of the divorce rumors, the ex-husband of Marjorie Jim Townsend is writing a tell-all book which includes details about his marriage to Marjorie as well as his life as a drug dealer.

According to Radar Online, Townsend is a convicted cocaine felon, who was sentenced to life in prison for attempting to purchase 40 kilos. He served 26 years until he was pardoned by former President Barack Obama in 2017.

He said in a statement,

I have no allegiance to Marjorie, she showed her hand. I’m going…tell my story. It don’t matter if she knows about it.

Now the rumors are Marjorie may have been an accomplice to her ex-husbands lifestyle, but was never charged with a crime.

According to the Harvey’s they are unbothered the rumors and allegations.

I guess we will find out when the book is officially released.

Make sure you wake up to the Steve Harvey Morning Show from 5 am – 9 am on Hot 107.3 Jamz.

Steve Harvey reveals how he went from broke to balling

Steve Harvey is no Van Gogh, but a hotel notepad filled with doodles suggests that the comedian, author and television host enjoys a little distraction during obligatory interviews.

His eyes pierce over his octagon lenses, his impassioned regurgitation of his love for Africa and its people tell of a long-distance love affair with the continent that goes back to his adolescence.

But before he was one of the world’s most recognisable celebrities, Harvey was homeless and living in his car. Having realised that he had the ability to make people laugh, Harvey quit his job in the ’80s to pursue his dream of becoming a comedian. The pursuit of his dream saw him using a cooler box as a refrigerator and public bathrooms to wash.

We spoke with the comedian at the Saxon Boutique Hotel in Sandton, while he was in Joburg to launch a local version of the hit US family game show, Family Feud, and found out how he went from broke to balling .

What were the distinguishing factors in your life that took you from being homeless in the ’80s to where you are today?

Vision and imagination. If you don’t have dreams or visions you just die on the vine. You turn from a grape to a raisin right there in the sun. But you’ve got to see yourself somewhere else. Somebody imagined flying one day, now people get on planes all the time. Somebody got tired of walking, we got cars. Somebody was talking on the phone and it was connected to the wall and they said, ‘Man, I wish I could take this phone outside’ now everybody has a cellphone.

Was there a point you wanted to give up?

Of course, everybody on the road to success considers turning back. The sad part of it is 95% of people do. I was homeless and living in a car. I said, man this is too hard, I should go home and ask my dad if I can stay at the house for six months and find a job, I almost gave up.

Twitter Reacts To Lori Harvey Being Arrested For Hit And Run

Source: Prince Williams / Getty

Lori Harvey, the 22-year-old socialite stepdaughter of comedian Steve Harvey, was arrested for her alleged role in a hit and run car accident Sunday night in Beverly Hills. But it was the reported manner in which the hit and run happened that was getting more attention than anything else.

Lori Harvey, a model who has been in the news recently for romantic rumors linking her to celebrities like Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs and rapper Future, reportedly hit a parked car in a collision that was apparently so hard that she ended up flipping her car. “The authorities confirmed she did not stick around the scene but was apprehended nearby,” E News reported. Rolling Out reported that “witnesses said she was texting and driving and accidentally hit a parked Prius and flipped her Mercedes G-Wagon onto its side.

That tidbit seemed to set Twitter on fire as users tweeted gifs and memes imagined Lori Harvey redefining in real-time what a hit-and-run car accident was by actually getting out of her crashed car and physically running away from the scene only to be nabbed by cops. (Rolling Out said Harvey actually “walked away,” but that didn’t stop the obligatory social media embellishment from commencing.)

As of Monday morning, no video of the car accident had surfaced on social media. But if history was any indication, it was just a matter of time before footage from a bystander’s cellphone or surveillance camera(s) turn up and show exactly what happened in the crash.

The crash took place after Harvey left dinner at Nobu, but there were no reports of alcohol or drugs being involved. In a stunning instance of privilege, Harvey was reportedly issued a citation for hit and run but not taken into custody and instead released on site.

The news of the car crash came amid a report from Bossip that she was on vacation with Future just days after she and Diddy appeared to end their relationship (which came after she dated Diddy’s son).

Scroll down to see a sample of Twitter responses to the news that Lori Harvey was arrested for hitting-and-running away from the car accident that she apparently caused through no fault of anyone else.

This is a developing story that will be updated as additional information becomes available.

DALLAS – The former wife of entertainer Steve Harvey was arrested Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court. She remains in jail in Collin County.

The civil matter is the latest in their legal fight that has gone on for several years. Their marriage in the spotlight of Harvey’s career spanned 16 years, then ended in a bitter custody battle and divorce in 2005.

That divorce case is sealed and under a gag order.

Mary Vaughn is now serving 30 days behind bars, and says she wanted to tell her side of the story.

Vaughn says she showed up at court without an attorney because she can’t afford one, adding that Harvey was in court with a legal team and an entourage.

“I was not expecting a four hour long hearing without an attorney,” she said.

“Am I angry? Yes,” said Vaughn. “I missed six years of my son’s life and I can’t get those years back.”

Vaughn’s release date isn’t until Jan 17.

“I’m just a mother who wants to have access to my son without interference,” she said. “I’m tired of getting pulled down to McKinney courthouse every time I say ‘Boo.’ I’m not going to be silenced.”

Harvey has custody of the couple’s teenage son.

FOX 4 contacted Harvey’s attorney for a response, who released the following statement:

“Please be advised that the Law Offices of Bobbie Edmonds represents. Mr. Steve Harvey, in the legal matter which has arisen from another episode of YouTube releases, which contain false, misleading, derogatory, defamatory, disparaging and malicious information about Mr. Harvey, his wife, and children by his ex-wife, Mary Vaughn Woolridge. (current married name) and formerly known as Mary L. Harvey, individually, and through her agent, representative and co-conspirator, Essie Berry aka EssieRerunBerry aka Essie Rerun Berry! aka Essie Nickerson aka Essie Jackson aka Essie Alexander. We filed another Motion for Contempt and Enforcement against Mary Vaughn Woolridge for the recent social media smear campaign and slanderous 2008 child abuse allegations against Mr.Harvey, among other violations of the prior gag order and permanent injunctions issued in 2008, 2011 and early 2013.

Further, since this matter has been under seal for legitimate reasons, Judge Tucker authorized Mr. Harvey and his attorney. Bobbie Edmonds, to provide limited disclosure of information to refute the false, misleading, derogatory, defamatory, disparaging and malicious statements published by Mary Vaughn Woolridge, her agent, assign and co-conspirator, Essie Berry aka EssieRerunBerry aka Essie Rerun Berry] aka Essie Nickerson aka Essie Jackson aka Essie Alexander through his lawyer, Bobbie Edmonds, in response to the recent negative publicity, false, misleading, derogatory, disparaging defamatory and slanderous information and statements made about Mr. Harvey, his current wife, family and others. The gag order and all prior permanent injunctions remain in full force and effect. This file remains sealed.

We obtained injunctive relief from Judge Tucker in McKinney. Texas. Subsequently, the Judge found her in contempt of court. Mr. Harvey only sought relief, and the Judge determined the appropriate relief, in part. to wit:

.”7.19 The Court further finds that Respondent, MARY LEE SHACKLEFORD aka MARY

LEE SHACKLEFORD H. WOOLRIDGE has failed to comply with and has violated the

provisions of the February 25, 2008 Order, November 11. 2011 and the February 21 2013…”

…”82 The Court finds that Respondent, MARY LEE SHACKLEFORD aka MARY LEE

SHACKLEFORD H. WOOLRIDGE has illustrated a history and pattern of disregarding the

Orders of this Court and continues to violate the Orders by intentionally releasing documents in

this case which are under seal, either directly or indirectly through third parties, intentionally

releasing false, misleading,, defamatory and making disparaging statements and displaying

court documents about Movant, BRODERICK S. HARVEY…

…”IT IS FURTHER ORDERED AND DECREED THAT ALL PRIOR PERMANENT

INJUNCTIONS AND GAG ORDERS AND SEALING ORDERS REGARDING THE

RESTRICTIONS ON RELEASING, PUBLISHING, AND OR DISCUSSING THE

CONTENT OF CAUSE NO. REMAINS IN FULL FORCE AND

EFFECT.”…

As to the old 2008 allegations of child abuse, the matter was fully investigated by the appropriate individuals with the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services and the mother. MaryVaughn Woolridge. father, Steve Harvey and other essential people were interviewed. The CPS results stated in part, …”Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk…the case is closed without further investigation…” Mrs. Woolridge was fully aware and informed of the results of the CPS Investigation.”

Steve Harvey Will Not Face Ex-Wife In Court After $60 Million ‘Torture’ Lawsuit Thrown Out

Steve Harvey‘s recent legal trouble involving his second ex-wife Mary Harvey has reportedly come to an end. A judge recently tossed a $60 million lawsuit filed by his ex that accused the comedian of torture, E! News reported.

Mary Harvey, who was married to Steve Harvey from 1996 to 2005, alleged that her former husband was guilty of child endangerment, conspiracy against rights and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Other charges included breach of contract and even “soul murder,” an allegation that involves “torture, deprivation and brainwashing.” She became suicidal and turned to self-medicating to deal with the stress of her headline-making divorce to Harvey in 2005, she claimed.

— Entertainment Tonight (@etnow) February 15, 2018

“The plaintiff had her son, had her businesses taken from her, nowhere to live, all Mother’s Days had been painful and empty,” read the lawsuit, which was filed in a court last May by an unnamed civil rights activist, not an attorney.

Mary Harvey reiterated her complaints, including an allegation that she didn’t receive a divorce settlement, against the game show host in YouTube videos last April.

“Steve Harvey owes me $50 million and I want him arrested for violating my civil rights,” she said in a video. “I want him charged with a constitutional rights violation, falsifying documents, perjury, contempt of court, embezzlement, extortion and collusion. For what he’s done to me, I want to see Steve Harvey behind bars.”

The comedian denounced the allegations, TMZ reported. “Mr. Harvey vehemently denies any allegations set forth in the lawsuit. The Complaint is meritless, frivolous and the allegations are completely false. We will vigorously defend/counterclaim against the Complaint,” Brandon Williams, Harvey’s attorney, said back last May.

The actor, who has been married to Marjorie Bridges-Woods since 2007, hasn’t let his ex-wife’s allegations get in the way of being a mogul. He continues to regularly take to Twitter to dish out advice to men and women about their relationships and lives.
