Steve Harvey just wants to be left alone.

In a memo circulated to staff, which was first published by Robert Feder’s Chicago media blog, Harvey allegedly instructed staff members to “not come to my dressing room unless invited” or to “approach me while I’m in the makeup chair unless I ask to speak with you directly.”

“I am seeking more free time for me throughout the day. Do not wait in any hallway to speak to me. I hate being ambushed. Please make an appointment. I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me,” Harvey wrote, adding, “Everyone, do not take offense to the new way of doing business. It is for the good of my personal life and enjoyment.”

The memo was reportedly sent out just before the fifth season of his talk show.
