Steve Harvey Cleared in Child Abuse Allegations

Posted Saturday December 21, 2013 3:00 PM GMT

After facing horrible allegations of child abuse from his ex-wife, Steve Harvey was reportedly cleared of wrongdoing.

In the police report, Mary Harvey claims the daytime host received a phone call from his 11-year-old son's school about him lying about turning in late homework. The child later said his father hit him with a belt and a paddle.

However, the matter was sent to the Texas Dept. of Family and Protective Services who performed an independent investigation and concluded, "Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk ... the case is closed without further investigation."

On Thursday (December 19), Mary was found in contempt of court for leaking sealed information about the incident to the media and sentenced to jail for thirty days.
