The embattled second ex-wife of the Family Feud host alleges in her lawsuit that Harvey 'damaged her soul' after she lost her only child to him during their infamously messy divorce.

Steve Harvey is now in the middle of a unusual lawsuit with his second ex-wife, Mary Shackelford, for a huge sum of $60 million.

She is reportedly suing her ex for child endangerment, kidnapping, torture, conspiracy against rights, breach of contract, and emotional distress, according to reports.

The suit was not filed by a lawyer but a person identifying themselves as Mary's "civil rights activist".

Harvey had claimed that her ex was a serial cheater who left her destitute after her divorce, but court documents disproved her claims, indicating she received $40,000 a month until March 2009 and then received a lump-sum settlement of $1.5 million.

In her suit, Mary Harvey says she is still suffering from Harvey allegedly confessing, three years into their relationship, that he was still married to his previous wife, and also claims that "her body became an accomplice of the tormentor as it became a treasonous poisoned territory".

In the past, Mary has been very vocal about her distaste for her ex-husband.

Steve and Mary (pictured in 2000) divorced in 2005. When it came to Ms. Harvey's claims of being barred from seeing her son, Harvey explained to Judge Robert Dry that Mary had once allowed a then 13-year-old Wynton to board an airplane to see Steve, without actually notifying him of his son's arrival beforehand.

Mary also alleged that Harvey cheated on her with current wife Marjorie. In 2013, Mary was arrested for breaking a gag order by leaking information relating to her divorce to Fox News. Steve Harvey has been married Marjorie Bridges-Woods since 2007.
