Not only was she given $1.5 million, but she was also awarded three homes.
In other words, Steve Harvey has (at least) 99 problems and Mary Shackleford IS one.
She posted several videos to her You Tube account, including some with Mary, detailing why they are suing Steve.
She's suing Steve for child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, murder, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress. She claims that during their marriage, which lasted from 1996 until their contentious divorce in 2005, she was allegedly subjected to "prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering". TMZ noted that it was not filed by an attorney either, but by "civil rights activist" Essie Berry, who would be acting as her attorney if the suit goes to court. Not much is known about her personal life, but she began making headlines after she accused her husband of physically abusing their son, which were proven to be false.

Steve and Mary (pictured in 2000) divorced in 2005. One of the supposed YouTube clips also had Mary stating that Steve "took my [son] Wynton from me", an accusation Steve and his son both strongly denied before and during that particular hearing.
The "Family Feud" host then married Marjorie Bridges-Woods in 2007.
His son is still in his custody. According to the Daily Mail, Mary was arrested in 2013 for contempt of court after making a similar allegation.
Shackelford is Harvey's second wife with the comedian's first marriage to Marcia Harvey taking place between 1980 and 1994, while he is now married to Marjorie Bridges, whom he tied the knot with in 2007.
