Her First Two Marriages Were To Men Of Questionable Character

Marjorie’s first marriage was to Jim Townsend. Few years after their marriage, Jim ran into problems with law enforcement agents. The FBI and DEA had been investigating him for drug-related offenses and arrested him in 1992. There were suspicions that Marjorie herself was involved in the husband’s shady deals, she also came under investigation but nothing was nailed to her.

Townsend was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. Majorie severed her relationship with Jim five years into his sentence. After serving 26 years of the jail term he was pardoned by the then-President Barack Obama in 2017. Upon release, Townsend was rumored to be planning on releasing an autobiography in which he threatened to air his dirty linen in public, he said its content would shed more light on Marjorie’s role in his cartel. He is yet to release the memoir and most likely was just calling a bluff. Townsend and Marjorie have two kids together, Morgan and Jason.

Marjorie’s second marriage was to Donnell Woods. The pair got married in 2000. A few years into the union, the FBI came knocking again, after trailing Woods for a while, they opened up an investigation into his illicit activities and found him guilty of drug smuggling.

Marjorie Elaine Harvey’s Marriage To Comedian Steve Harvey

Marjorie married her husband, Steve Harvey, in 2007. The couple met for the first time in 1990, at a comedy club in Memphis and they started dating shortly afterward. According to Steve, the first time he set his eyes on her, he was smitten with love. He went as far as telling her that he was going to get married to her one day.

Due to the exigencies of life, it was not possible for them to begin a serious relationship at the time. Distance and the fact that they were both involved with other people at the time meant they remained friends until they reconnected in 2005.

In June 2007, he settled down with Marjorie who according to him, has made him a better man.

According to Steve, after his previous marriage ended, he was convinced by his bodyguard to ring up Marjorie and take her out on a date. He told Harvey that in all his years working for him he had never seen him as happy as he was during the few times he was with Marjorie. Steve concurred, and the rest they say is history.

Marjorie said during an interview that part of the reasons for their separation was majorly due to their long-distance relationship. Steve, on the other hand, had admitted that he had a love at first sight with Marjorie. The marriage between the two was quite a private one despite their age gap of about eight years. Their marriage is over a decade old even though they have known each other considerably longer.

As for Steve, his marriage to Marjorie is his third. The West Virginia born comedian was first married to Marcia Harvey with whom he had three children—a son named Broderick Harvey Jr and twin daughters Brandi and Karli. His second marriage was to Mary Shackelford with whom he had a son named Wynton before they divorced in November 2005.

Harvey’s household is one big family. Steve and Marjorie have done an excellent job fussing all the kids from their previous marriages into one blended family. Steve adopted three of her kids all of whom now bear the Harvey last name.

On one of Steve’s birthday’s Marjorie surprised her husband with a Bentley, in response to the Rolls Royce and a mansion he gifted her on her own birthday.

Marjorie Elaine Harvey’s children from her previous marriage, Morgan, Jason, and Lori are readily seen sharing special family moments with Steves other kids Brandi, Karli, Broderick Jnr, and Wynton. Altogether, the couple has seven children under their care. The family resides in Chicago, Illinois, US.
