Steve Harvey defends his marriage after haters accuse wife of spending all his money on lavish vacation

Yachts, helicopters, private jets, catch-ups with Elton John, his-and-her silk bathrobes ... Steve Harvey and wife Marjorie are undeniably enjoying the good life on their summer vacation. But the couple’s lavish vacation snaps have had some critics accusing Marjorie of being a gold digger, prompting her Family Feud-hosting husband to set the record straight.

After the couple’s adventures sparked gossipy comments accusing Marjorie of “spending all of Steve’s savings” and “breaking Steve’s bank account,” Harvey himself defended the relationship.

While their jet-setting lifestyle — and five-star vacation that’s seen them crisscross Europe before taking a private jet to Accra, Ghana — has elicited some side-eye, many fans are eating them up and cheering the Harveys on.

“All I say is you are a true hater if don’t like the way this lovely couple swang,” read one comment.

“I don’t know why people get so bent out of shape over other people’s lives,” one person wrote in their defense. “Either like the pic or don’t. All the extra is irrelevant. They’re gonna do them regardless. It’s not that deep.”

“Well, I believe Marjorie is a ‘ride or die’ chick!” a fan wrote. “She was just blessed to find her true love! If she knows how to make him happy, more power to her! Quit hating, and be happy for them!”

“People, the lady makes money too!!!!!” added a Marjorie supporter, while another commenter wrote to her, “You are a bad girl! Love your style, you're truly in a class by yourself. Keep shining and sharing your shine. I'm watching and am encouraged.”

Harvey married his third wife in 2007. Together the couple has seven children, including model Lori Harvey, the youngest of Marjorie’s three kids from a past relationship. Lori herself set tongues wagging by dining with her stepdad and her rumored love interest, Sean “Diddy” Combs in Italy during the Harveys’ luxurious vacation.
