Steve Harvey said he’s “sick of” the false rumors about his marriage and talk show, Steve, in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution published on Tuesday.
The comic has been married to Marjorie Harvey since 2007. In July, Radar Online claimed that the Harveys were headed for a divorce because Steve was allegedly leaving his wife for Kardashian momager, Kris Jenner. The digital tabloid also said Marjorie was seeking $400 million in the split.
“My wife came to me and said, ‘Do we have $400 million?’” Steve said about the rumors. “Nah. Not yet.”
The couple shared photos from their vacation days after the fake divorce news.
Although the Family Feud host can joke about the speculations it bothers him that his seven children and five grandchildren have to see the slander.
“I’m sick of it,” Steve said. “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.”
The National Enquirer labeled Steve a “crook” on the cover of a paper in Aug. 2017 and later published the false report that Steve was fired from his talk show. A rumor he vehemently denied.
The 61-year-old also addressed conflicting reports that Steve would be dropped by several NBC affiliates in 2019 for a talk show hosted by Kelly Clarkson, the inaugural winner of American Idol.
“I’ve always been an optimistic person,” Steve said. “This is NBC’s decision… I don’t own any TV networks but I’n not a grudge type of person. I happen to be a talent. I think people recognize that. Whatever happens with the show moving forward, I’ll be just fine.”
The entertainer said he is in favor of libel laws for public figures.
