TMZ is reporting Harvey has been cleared of accusations by his ex-wife Mary Harvey (pictured in Steve Harvey photo inset above) and their 11-year-old son of  “brutally beating” the youngster.


The report goes on to say that a judge found Mary Harvey in contempt Thursday and sent her to jail for leaking sealed information about the alleged incident to the media.

As for the incident … according to a police report — obtained by TMZ — Mary claims Steve got a phone call from the boy’s school informing him his son lied about turning in homework.  According to the kid, Steve hit him with a belt and then a paddle board — the kind used for hazing in fraternities.

According to the police report … cops took photos of the boy’s injuries, showing bruises on his buttocks and right thigh, as well as cuts on his leg.  The police report says the boy told cops, the beating was so brutal he had trouble urinating for days.

The matter was then referred to the Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services.

According to Steve Harvey’s reps, the matter was referred to the Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services, which concluded concluded that, “Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk … the case is closed without further investigation.”

On the other hand Mary Harvey believes that it’s all a cover-up, and as we’ve seen time and time again, she’s been on a campaign for several years to make Steve look bad. Seems like she failed again. And on top of that, for her effort, yesterday the judge concluded that she violated the protective order in the case and threw her in the pokey for 30 days.

Now she’s got 30 more reasons to hate Steve.
