Steve Harvey & Wife Marjorie Allegedly Tied To Multiple Drug Smuggling Rings — Report
Steve Harvey tries to keep up his clean-cut image to the world, but his past is coming back to haunt him after never-before-seen divorce documents have been discovered. Harvey's wife Marjorie, who he married in 2007, was reportedly under investigation by the FBI and the DEA during her two previous marriages.

Harvey 60, is reportedly tied to two cocaine smuggling rings through his current wife, Marjorie. She was previously married to drug dealers that ran smuggling rings to move hundreds of kilos of narcotics between Houston and Memphis. 

The FBI and DEA reportedly started investigating Marjorie during her marriage to drug lord Jim L. Townsend, 68. The two government agencies believed Marjorie played a role in the drug ring, telling Townsend his "wife would be arrested if he didn't cooperate with them , as the agents believed they had substantial evidence of her own illegal activities."

Marjorie was eight months pregnant with their second child, son Jason, at that time. He was also concerned that their 5-year-old daughter, Morgan, would be left without a mother if he didn't cop a plea. 

Townsend revealed, "There was Marjorie and my brother, Terry and that was part of the plea bargain. We cut a deal that they wouldn't indict them. Yes, they were involved. But I was the ringleader."


Townsend was later indicted for attempting to buy 40 kilos of cocaine and he received a life sentence. He served 26 years and was released in January 2017 after being granted a pardon by then-President Barack Obama.

Marjorie and Townsend split less than five years into his sentence, but she then became romantically involved with another drug kingpin, Donnell Woods. He fathered her third child, daughter Lori, in 1997. They tied the knot in 2000, which was reportedly the time when the FBI began investing Wood for drug smuggling. 

#SteveHarvey is currently facing some legal trouble! Earlier this week it was ruled in court that Harvey owes "$36K in late [child] support payments" to his first wife, Marcia. In the midst of his refusal to make support payments, the talkshow host's current wife, Marjorie's sketchy past has now come to light. ___________________________________________

Woods and nine others were busted for peddling more than 300 pounds of cocaine and about 250 pounds of marijuana. He pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison. Marjorie divorced him in 2001 and immediately began a romance with Harvey's bodyguard, "Big Boom", a former pimp. 


Marjorie then began dating Steve, who was married to his second wife, Mary Shackelford. In fact, after Mary and Steve split, she accused him of bigamy, claiming he was still legally married to her when he wed Marjorie in 2007!

Steve definitely had a pattern. He also left his first wife, Marcia, while she was pregnant, for Mary.Harvey.”
