Family Matters: Jaleel 'Steve Urkel' White Allegedly Slaps the Mother of His Child

White is under investigation for punching, slapping and pushing his baby's mother.


Popular 1980s sitcom star Jaleel White, who played Steve Urkel on the sitcom Family Matters, is being investigated for assaulting the mother of his child. Bridget Hardy claims that White punched her in the chest while driving and then slapped and pushed her after arriving home. White's camp claims it's a ploy in a custody battle over their child. We have no words except, we guess he's secured a spot on next year's BET Awards.
