Prominent American television host Steve Harvey and his wife Marjorie have firmly addressed swirling divorce rumours that recently gained traction on social media platforms.
The couple took to their respective online accounts to quell the speculations and reaffirm their strong marital bond.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, Marjorie Harvey emphasized the couple's usual practice of ignoring baseless claims surrounding their relationship.
"My husband and I don’t usually stop to address all the lies that have been spread about us," Marjorie wrote, underscoring their preference to rise above unfounded allegations.
However, she acknowledged the responsibilities that accompany their public standing: "To whom much is given much is required. I understand that with my platform comes some sort of responsibility to those that may not be as strong as we are."
Marjorie also sought to assist others who may have found themselves in similar situations, sharing a pertinent article on how to effectively cope with being maligned.
"Read and share this with your loved ones so that they may know how to properly cope. God Bless all of you," she added.
Meanwhile, Steve Harvey echoed his wife's sentiments, dismissing the rumour mill with a succinct declaration.
Steve elaborated on their stance while attending the Invest Fest Market Place 2023 event, brushing aside the rumours as mere hearsay.
"Just let me say, I'm fine. Marjorie's fine...I don't know what y'all doing, but find something else to do because we fine. Lord have mercy. I ain't got no time for rumours and gossip. God's been good to me, I'm still shining," he reiterated, leaving no room for doubt about their united front against the unfounded claims.
Marjorie bolstered their stance with a passage from the Bible that reflects their approach to such challenges.
"When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly," she shared.
This biblical perspective resonated with their overarching message of resilience and grace in the face of adversity.
In her caption for the Bible verse, Marjorie reiterated the importance of responsibility, particularly for those who may not possess the same emotional strength as they do.
She again encouraged her followers to gain insights from the shared material, titled "How to handle being lied about," as a resource for navigating deceitful situations.
Both Marjorie and Steve Harvey ensured that their message was heard beyond the digital sphere.
In a resolute manner, the Harveys have quashed the speculative whispers, reinforcing their enduring bond and the strength of their partnership.
