Ned Nwoko, the Nigerian businessman, has dispelled the rumours claiming Steve Harvey and his wife are having marital issues.
On Saturday, the internet was inundated with reports claiming Marjorie Harvey, the wife of the popular American TV host, is “seeking divorce after she was reportedly caught having an extramarital affair with their chef and bodyguard”.
The report also claimed “Marjorie had filed for divorce through her lawyers and is currently seeking half of Steve’s $400 million net worth”.
Although the TV host has remained reticent, Nwoko took to Instagram to disclose that he contacted Harvey with respect to the rumours.
The Nigerian businessman said the media personality, who he described as “my friend”, told him that he and his wife are “very much okay”, adding that the rumours are “fake”.
Nwoko also lamented the rate at which “fake news” is now prevalent across the world.
“Fake news has been taken to new heights all over the world and this is so unfortunate,” he wrote.
“We experience this practically every day and so when we read about our friend Steve Harvey and his lovely wife having issues, we had to contact Him and He confirmed that he and his wife are very much okay and it’s all fake news and should be disregarded.
“The family is happy together and we wish them all the best.”
