Steve Harvey - Steve Harvey Cleared Of Child Abuse

Comedian Steve Harvey has been cleared of child abuse allegations after he was accused of hitting his 11-year-old son.

The star's ex-wife, Mary Harvey, and their son claimed the funnyman had brutally beaten the young boy for lying about schoolwork, after his body appeared to be covered in bruises and cuts.

After cops referred the case to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, it was decided that the kid was at no risk and the case against Harvey has since been closed.

Harvey's representative tells Tmz.com that family services officials decided, "Based on the information obtained, the child does not appear to be at risk... the case is closed without further investigation."

However, in a strange turn of events, the comedian's second wife was charged with contempt of court on Thursday (19Dec13) for leaking sealed information about the alleged incident to the media, and has been sentenced to 30 days behind bars.

Harvey, 56, was married to Mary from 1996 to 2005, but the union ended amid allegations of his infidelity with Marjorie Bridges, who he wed in 2007.
