When their relationship hit rock bottom, Marcia was pregnant with their third child, Broderick, born in 1991. Later revelations indicated that Steve had started living with his second wife, Mary Lee Harvey, even before his divorce with Marcia was finalized.

After the divorce, the television personality refused to pay alimony and child support. So, the mother of three sought legal assistance, and the comedian was found guilty. As a result, he was required to pay US$5100 per month as support payments.

However, a stubborn Steve still refused to pay. So, his ex-wife was forced to submit an affidavit to the court. The court found the comedian guilty of not paying support money and revealed he owed his ex-wife over US$36K. So, she was awarded $36,000 in back child support payments, and Steve's monthly amount was increased to $6,630 a month.

The mother raised the children all by herself as Steve abandoned his kids for his career. As a result, he had an estranged relationship with them, but they eventually reconciled and worked towards building a better relationship.
