Wynton was only eight years old when his parents ended their nine years of marriage in 2005. Steve and Mary received colossal media coverage about their divorce.
According to sources, Wynton’s mother had accused Steve of infidelity. It led her to claim that she deserved a large percentage of his assets, as well as his future revenue.
Steve and Mary also had an ugly custody battle regarding Wynton. Steve eventually won the custody of his son.

Later as a divorce settlement, Steve provided Mary with a considerable sum of $1.5 million. He also paid her $40,000 per month till 2009.
The divorce had affected Mary more than Steve because she had known Steve for 14 years. Her assistant stated Mary was quite disturbed by the divorce. Their divorce blow-up did not just affect them, but it also affected their relationship with Wynton.
Mary’s assistant said,
“Mary was overwhelmed, and she did not want that, so she asked me to get a ticket and put Wynton on the plane to his father. And I had followed her order although I did not want to.”
After Steve won his son’s custody, 10-year-old Wynton moved to his house. At that time, Steve was sharing his home with his third wife, Marjorie Harvey. Wynton did not just reunite with his father but also got blessed with his blended family.
Wynton has three half-siblings named Karli Harvey Raymond, Brandi Harvey, and Broderick Harvey Jr. He also has three step-siblings through his stepmother’s past relationship. Today, Wynton is close to all of his step-siblings, Morgan, Lori, and Jason Harvey.

Wynton has a good bond with his stepmother Marjorie and his stepsister Lori. Marjorie raised Wynton like her own son after he moved to her house. Likewise, Lori and Wynton are of the same age, which led him to spend more time with her than his other siblings.
In 2017, Lori even selected Wynton as her cavalier for Le Bal due to their strong bond. Le Bal is a prestigious debutante ball held annually in Paris.
Furthermore, the brother-sister duo completed their high school in the same year. They also attended the same university in 2015.
Wynton Harvey attended a local hometown school to obtain his high school degree. In 2017, Wynton made a surprise appearance in Steve Harvey’s show for Father’s Day. He revealed how his father had encouraged him to work hard to complete his high school degree during the show.
“My dad turned me into a good enough student, so I could be accepted into college because I was having some troubles, but he was able to turn me around.”
We are not sure what kind of trouble Wynton was going through. During the show, Steve agreed to what Wynton had to say. He jokingly even nodded his head and said,
“You were stupid little something.”
Wynton joined Florida International University with his stepsister, Lori Harvey, in 2015. Steve Harvey even posted a short video of the siblings packing their belongings before leaving for the university.
In the video, Wynton seemed quite excited about leaving his parent’s home for college. He said,
“I’m excited about starting college, you know! To see what the world is like out there on my own. Plus, I am not fully on my own; my sister is coming with me so.”
Before leaving for the university, Steve Harvey also had a one-on-one talk with Wynton. The video of the father-son conversing is available on Harvey’s YouTube Channel.
During the conversation, Steve revealed he made Wynton make a list of 75 things he will not do after leaving the house. Some of the things Wynton included in the list were ‘no stealing, no drinking and driving, and no getting a girl pregnant.’
Though the list was long, Wynton stated that he believed it would keep him out of a lot of trouble.
He was a student there till 2017. Several sources claim that Wynton is currently a student at Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, Georgia.
Wynton Harvey personality
Since Wynton was born on July 18th, his sun sign lies under Cancer. Being a Cancerian, Wynton is quite intuitive and creative. He is a hesitant person who needs reassurance and acceptance from the people around him.
He occasionally appears in his father’s show. He also seems to be a humorous person, just like his father. Wynton stands 6 feet (1.63 m) tall and weighs about 85 kg (187.39 lbs). He has black hair and a pair of brown eyes.
Wynton Harvey keeps quite a low profile when it comes to his relationships. However, he is dating a famous American journalist’s daughter, Taylor Gordan. The couple first met in 2016 and were inseparable after their first meet.
Fans and the media only knew about their relationship after Wynton posted Taylor’s picture on his Instagram. He uploaded the photo for their anniversary on July 24th, 2017.
Since then, Wynton posted several photos of him and Taylor hanging around. In 2018, he even wished her on Valentine’s day.
Under the post, his caption read,
“Happy Valentine’s Day, baby, three down, 300 more to go. Thank you for loving me more and more every day and for giving me the chance to do the same. See you soon.”
However, in 2019 Wynton deleted all the pictures of him and Taylor from his Instagram. Then again, in March 2020, fans saw the duo hanging out with their best friends on Taylor’s Instagram.
The pair never announced their breakup to the public. So, we guess Wynton deleted his Instagram posts only to make it a professional account.
