    Steve Harvey is being sued by his second ex-wife Mary Shackelford, E! News has learned, for upwards of $60 million dollars.

    According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the comedian's ex claims her life has never been the same following their divorce in 2005.

    Shackelford alleges that she's been suicidal and has resorted to self-medicate in an effort to handle the aftermath of their contentious divorce battle.

    She is suing Harvey for a lengthy list of things, including child endangerment, torture, conspiracy against rights, intentional infliction of emotional distress, breach of contract and even "soul murder." The lawsuit states: "Soul murder is achieved by a combination of torture, deprivation and brainwashing."

    In April, Shackelford posted a series of YouTube videos alleging that she never received her divorce settlement after the two split.

    "The judge said our divorce would be contingent upon the division of community assets but that never happened," she explained.

    "Steve Harvey owes me $50 million and I want him arrested for violating my civil rights. I want him charged with a constitutional rights violation, falsifying documents, perjury, contempt of court, embezzlement, extortion and collusion. For what he's done to me, I want to see Steve Harvey behind bars."

    Harvey and Shackelford were married from 1996 to 2005. Harvey remarried in 2007. 

    The news is the latest bad publicity for the talk show host. Earlier this month Harvey faced criticism for a scathing memo he sent to the staff of his talk show host where, among other things, he laid down a strict set of restrictions detailing he was not to be spoken to without prior consent.

    Representatives for Harvey did not respond to requests for comment.
