Steve Harvey: Accused of Harassing, Stalking, Bullying Essie Berry

Family Feud host Steve Harvey’s ex-wife is suing him for a slew of things including torture and “soul murdering.”

He is also being sued by the widow of a famous actress.

She accuses Harvey of harassing, bullying, and stalking her — among other things.

Essie Berry is the widow of the late Fred “Rerun” Berry, an actor and street dancer best known for his role as Rerun on What’s Happening?

RadarOnline reports that, in March, Essie filed a lawsuit against Steve Harvey. She is seeking $ 5 million.

She is suing him for damage to her reputation, harassment, witness intimidation, and infliction of mental anguish and emotional distress.

Harvey is denying it all.

In fact, he is alleging that Essie and his ex-wife, Mary Vaughn, are conspiring together in a “quixotic campaign” to take him down.

“From 2013 to August 2018,” the affidavit reads. “The Defendant and known affiliates have harassed, bullied, stalked, silenced, threatened, and intimidated Ms. Berry.”

This has included Harvey allegedly having people post threats against her on YouTube and other sites, resulting in a loss of potential income.

“Furthermore,” the affidavit continues. “The Defendant went at great lengths to make Ms. Berry’s life a living hell.”

“The Defendant manipulated media and entertainment outlets with his mistruths,” the suit alleges. “And caused intentional harm to Ms. Berry’s health and likeness without any apparent justification.”

In other words, it sounds like he allegedly badmouthed her and, also allegedly, sabotaged her career and livelihood.

The suit says: “She lost contracts and wages as a result of the defendant’s actions.”

Steve Harvey’s team hit back: “Mr. Harvey promptly filed a demurrer to Ms. Berry’s rambling and incoherent original complaint.”

“That challenge was mooted,” Harvey’s team asserts. “Days before a hearing when Ms. Berry amended her pleading to assert new claims and theories.”

“Through the present demurrer, Mr. Harvey seeks to end Ms. Berry’s continued misuse and abuse of the judicial system,” Harvey’s team claims.

“Her operative pleading remains woefully deficient under even the most relaxed pleading standard,” the rebuttal continues. “It purports to plead claims that do not exist.”

Essie Berry’s team, however, asserts that this is definitely not something that she’s making up.

“Ms. Berry filed numerous reports to local enforcement and other reporting agencies to restrain the Defendant from constant harassment,” Berry’s team replies.

Of those filings, there was one “which was granted in the State of Arizona in 2013 prior to his retaliating attempt at a restraining order that was in direct violation of the protective order granted to the Plaintiff.”

“On two occasions in 2017,” Berry’s team says. “The Defendant sent an unidentified male to Ms. Berry’s family members home after business hours.”

If that was intended as a threat, it sounds absolutely chilling.

So it looks like two different women are accusing Steve Harvey of being life-ruiningly awful, and they are each suing him to the tune of millions of dollars.

This comes on the heels of the revelation that Steve Harvey does not like to interact with his own coworkers unless he has to, after a memo that he posted went viral.

Sometimes, public figures who appear to be very congenial and admirable turn out to be very different people behind closed doors.

That said, we do not yet know if either woman will be able to prove her accusations in court.


Travis Reinking, Waffle House Shooting Suspect, Once Believed Taylor Swift Was Stalking Him

Travis Reinking is a wanted man.

And, by many recent accounts, Travis Reinking is also a mentally troubled man.

The 29-year old is the main suspect in a horrific shooting that took place late last week, one in which Reinking allegedly opened fire with an AR-15 and killed four people at a Waffle House in Antioch, Tennessee.

Many others at the scene were wounded in the attack and transported to a local hospital.

In a Tweet Monday, the Metro Nashville Police Department said the following about this incident and this search:

“MNPD officers, to include SWAT, have continued the search for Travis Reinking in the Antioch area overnight. There have been no credible sightings. The search will continue.

“All schools in the area have been cleared by officers. He was last seen Sun morn behind his apt complex.”

While all able bodies in the area are looking for Travis Reinking, a disturbing profile of the man has emerged online.

It has quite the unusual and spotted history.

In July of 2017, he breached a White House security barrier and said he wanted to meet President Donald Trump.

Reinking told a Secret Service officer at the time that he was “sovereign citizen” who had a “right to inspect the grounds,” according to a Metropolitan Police Department incident report dated July 7.

Prior to this bizarre trespassing incident, documents obtained by CNN from the sheriff’s office in Tazewell County, Illinois indicate that Reinking was once described by police as exhibiting “delusional” behavior.

“Travis is hostile toward police and does not recognize police authority. Travis also possesses several firearms,” an officer wrote in a May 2016 incident report.

This report was penned because Reinking’s parents had called emergency services to say their son though Taylor Swift was stalking him, and he had made comments about killing himself.

Wait…what was that about Taylor Swift?!?

On May 27, 2016, a Tazewell County Sheriff’s deputy met Reinking and his parents in a drug store parking lot after the latter pair had phoned for assistance, according to authorities.

A paramedic told the responding officer that Reinking believed that Swift was harassing him by stalking and hacking his phone.

This is what an office at the time wrote:

“Travis believed everyone including his own family and the police are involved. Travis stated he did not want to hurt Taylor Swift or anyone else, he only wanted the harassment to stop.”

Reinking was candid about what he believed to be taking place.

He told the cop that the harassment started a few weeks earlier when Swift hacked his Netflix account and told him to meet her at a Dairy Queen.

He then told the officer that when he showed up… she ran off and vanished.

It would be very easy to laugh or scoff at this claim.

But it’s far harder to do so when you consider that Reinking just reportedly killed four people with a machine gun he likely purchased legally.

About a year after this incident, police were called to deal with Reinking again after someone said he came out of his apartment wearing a dress and holding a rifle.

Shortly after Reinking spoke to police about Swift, a group of policemen convinced him to check into a hospital for a mental evaluation.

But it’s unclear what came of this.

“At this point, the young man could be anywhere and whether he might try to return home is a distinct possibility, so our officers are definitely on alert,” Tazewell County Sheriff Robert Huston said Sunday in a news conference.

We’ll keep readers updated on this situation as more news breaks.
