“Family Feud” host and all-around jolly fellow Steve Harvey has been cleared of all child abuse charges levied against him by his ex.

Harvey's son alleged that his dad beat him so severely with a paddle and a belt that he had trouble urinating afterwards, according to TMZ. The police report contains photos of the boy's alleged injuries, and the matter was turned over to family protective services in Texas for further review. However, the agency has determined that the child was not at risk, and the case is now closed.

Harvey's ex-wife, Mary, is standing by her and her son's story, and in her attempt to prove the allegations she leaked sealed documents to the media, which got her 30 days in jail for contempt of court.
