Marjorie and Harvey’s divorce isn’t difficult to deal with as it is, it gets to be distinctly harder when you have a vengeful ex behind you. Steve and Marjorie’s relationship was shown in a grimy manner by Steve’s ex Mary Lee when she accused Steve of evicting her from her home and persuasively taking their child, Wynton on the court.
She also went on to post a YouTube video where she allegedly claimed that Steve was having an extramarital with Marjorie before their separation. Later the judge declared that all of her allegations were false and there had been no evidence of Steve’s infidelity as well.
