Marjorie Harvey’s Ex-Husband, Lori Harvey’s Real Father & Former KingPin Jimmy L. Townsend Speaks

Marjorie Harvey has been married three times. Her first marriage was to Jim Townsend, with whom she had two children. Her second marriage was to Darnell Woods, a distant cousin of Jim’s, with whom she had one child, Lori.
