Broderick Harvey Jr. early life
Broderick Harvey Jr. was born in Los Angeles, California, on April 29th, 1991. He is the son of Steve Harvey and his first wife, Marcia Harvey.
Broderick’s parents separated when Marcia was still pregnant with him in 1990. The couple faced instability in their relationship as Steve Harvey continued to get famous as a stand-up comedian.
However, the main reason for his parent’s split was allegedly due to Steve’s infidelity. Marcia accused Steve of seeing and living with his second wife before legally ending his marriage with Marcia. The couple finalized their divorces three years after Broderick’s birth in 1994.
Broderick completed his high school at North Springs Charter High School in Sandy Springs, Georgia. North Springs is an institution mainly known for its specialization in arts and sciences.
Broderick joined Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2010. He graduated with a degree in Arts in 2014.
Broderick Harvey Jr. comes from a blended family. His father, Steve Harvey, is an American comedian, television host, and author. Steve is famous for hosting shows like ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show,’ ‘Family Feud.’
Steve has also hosted Miss Universe competitions. Although Broderick spent most of his childhood growing up with his mother, Marcia, he is still very close to his father.
During one of his father’s talk shows, Broderick spoke about his relationship with his father. He revealed that he was able to get to know his father only after turning 16.
“I didn’t have my dad full time in my life until I was 16. They (Steve and Marjorie Harvey) moved into Atlanta, and they wanted me to move with them. And at 16, I knew I needed that as a man. I needed that connection with him.”
Likewise, during the show, Steve talked about his mistake of not being there for his son in his earlier life. He said,
“Now I spend my entire life trying to make up for the mistake I have made as a young father.”
Today the father-son duo is closer than ever. Broderick and his father even work professionally on a variety of projects.
On the other hand, Broderick’s mother, Marcia Harvey, is a businesswoman and an author. She has reportedly authored three books. They are ‘Marcia: Eyes to the Soul,’ ‘Marcia: Poems from The Heart,’ and ‘Marcia: Thoughts from My Mind.’
After her divorce from Steve Harvey, Marcia moved to Cleveland from Los Angeles with her children and raised them herself. Broderick said that due to his father’s absence in 16 years of his life, his mother was not happy when he decided to live with him in Atlanta.
“My mom was hurt when I said I wanted to go to Atlanta to live with my dad. She said, ‘Oh, why are you going? He wasn’t here for 16 years.’
Despite the divorce between his father and mother, Broderick is close to both today.
Broderick has two biological twin sisters named Brandi Harvey and Karli Harvey Raymond. They were born before him.
Both Brandi and Karli are teachers and motivational speakers. They strive to inspire women and young ladies.
Likewise, Broderick has a half-brother from his father’s second marriage, named Wynton Harvey. Wynton is a professional photographer and a student at Savannah College of Art and Design.
Furthermore, Broderick also has three stepsiblings from his father’s third marriage with Marjorie Harvey. He has two stepsisters named Morgan and Lori Harvey.
Morgan is a baker and food blogger. She owns a blog called ‘Give Me Some Mo.’ While Lori is a professional model who works for brands like ‘Dolce and Gabbana’ and ‘Hermes.’
Similarly, Broderick also has a stepbrother named Jason Harvey. He runs a business called ‘Yevrah’ that produces women’s footwear.
