Steve Harvey’s Ex-Wife Jailed for Contempt of Court for Talking About Sealed Divorce Case (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Mary Vaughn Woolridge, formerly known as Mary Harvey and the ex-wife of entertainer Steve Harvey, was arrested Thursday after a judge found her in contempt of court.

Her divorce case from Steve Harvey is sealed and under a gag order, but she decided to talk. She claims she just wanted to tell her side of the story. Mary Vaughn Woolridge is now serving 30 days behind bars for talking and is expected to be released from jail January 17.

Woolridge said she showed up to court without an attorney because she couldn’t afford one and was subjected to a four-hour hearing. The hearing stemmed from a series of YouTube videos she released talking about her divorce from Steve Harvey. The couple have a teenage son.

MyFoxAtlanta received the following statement from Steve Harvey’s attorneys:

“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.

If this woman violated the gag order, then she should be held accountable. If she is being wronged by Steve Harvey, then God will deal with him. We don’t need to hear about this hot mess in the media. This casts doubts on Steve Harvey’s stature and cheapens his accomplishment of nabbing an interview with President Obama.

    I have read this whole case about Steve Harvey and it sad to know that Steve Harvey put his child mother in jail. Then they said that negative stuff about that Civil Rights Activist Essie Berry, How did she even get involved with Steve or Mary Harvey, What I can say to try and silence a Activist he is crazy and he really look guilty, From what I have read about Mrs. Berry she is a very strong women fighting for the truth, Steve Harvey must know that Essie Berry could destroy his career and that is why he is trying to put a GAG order on her. I saw Steve Harvey on the cover of essence magazine with his allege wife now, That still do not make him look good, His show need to be boycotted as well as family feud, Steve Harvey look evil and he look like a dishonest person, I can say he will reap what he sew, I hope Essie Berry tell the truth to show the low life Steve Harvey is, Who will Steve Harvey try to put a GAG order next.

    Wow Brenda you are right about Essie Berry Civil Rights Activist, Mrs. Berry was in Barstow California and took on the whole police station on for setting up blacks and racially profiling them, She is a very nice person, I loved her husband Fred Rerun Berry as an actor from What’s Happening. It was different when he went after Mary his wife but to say the things he said about Mrs. Berry trying to make her look bad, He made his own self look guilty, fake, stupid and he look way more corrupt trying to shut up a Civil Rights Activist up. The court in Texas that he keep running to need to be investigated as well, Essie Berry civil rights activist is one of the most deep women that I have seen in this generation of fighting for causes, I really do not think that Steve Harvey did his research about her, That is sad because they called her the PITBULL in Barstow because she would not back down from a investigation or anyone, We need more leaders like Essie Berry

    Mary Harvey did not deserve to be lock up and they are violating all her rights, But Mary has to stand up and get an investigation going for her self, I saw her on channel 4 news in Texas she did not do a good job, She looked scared, Steve Harvey keep trying to keep Mary under a GAG order that show me that he is guilty. Also I have a friend that work for CPS he said that they would not have just close a case like that so Steve paid some one off, That was very disrespectful to try and make the Civil Rights Activist Essie Berry look bad with all the name they said, Steve Harvey and his lawyer look stupid you can not find anything bad on Mrs.Berry. It look like there trying to take the heat off Steve but to go after the Activist it is making a lot of people wonder now, What is Steve hiding? I know all my friends want to know, What they said about Essie Berry you could not find anything about her bad on the internet, So he made his self look like a liar. There would be a pattern shown if Mrs. Berry was not right or was corrupt, It is getting juicy now, I do believe if they try and to shut the activist up. It will be the worst mistake he has ever made, Because I watch an video that she did about 29 palm marine base in California and she was Raw and was going after people and did not care who they were she wanted justice, If I get in trouble I will contact Essie Berry Civil Right Activist before I contact a attorney that is what I do know because she is not a joke.LOL
