Steve Harvey is facing a number of allegations leveled against him by his ex-wife, Mary L. Vaughn, in a lawsuit filed against the host on Wednesday, yet another legal dispute following the couple's bitter divorce more than a decade ago.

Vaughn, Harvey's second wife, is suing the TV personality for $60 million, claiming that during their marriage, which lasted from 1996 until their contentious divorce in 2005, she was allegedly subjected to "prolonged torture with the infliction of severe mental pain and suffering," according to court documents obtained by Et.

The documents also claim that Vaughn "attempted suicide by self-medicating [in] an effort to stop the pain," and allege that Harvey and his attorney caused "severe emotional distress" that led to a litany of medical conditions for Vaughn and her immediate family over the last 15 years.

Additionally, Vaughn is suing for alleged child endangerment, torture, kidnapping »
