Following the backlash over a harshly worded staff memo, entertainer Steve Harvey faces a $60 million lawsuit from his second ex-wife Mary Harvey, the New York Daily News reports.

The outlet said the lawsuit, filed by a civil rights activist, accuses the talk show host of child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, kidnapping, breach of contract and intentional infliction of emotional distress that has damaged her soul.

Mary says in the suit that she’s in emotion pain because Steve has custody of their son, and not having their son stole her joy on Mother’s Day. She claims to feel suicidal and to self-medicate to manage her grief.

This caps off a tumultuous week for the comedian. He’s taken heat for his leaked memo that warns staff members to quit “ambushing” him in his dressing room and studio corridors. Although unapologetic about the memo, the entertainer admitted that he could have handled the situation a lot better.
