Kordell Stewart Files For Divorce From Real Housewives Porsha Williams
Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from wife of two years, “Real Housewives of Atlanta’s” Porsha Stewart.
The 40-year-old Former NFL quarterback Pittsburgh Steelers star Kordell Stewart filed legal papers at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on March 22, TMZ reports.
In court documents, Kordell said the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and claims the two are currently separated. Kordell requested that no spousal support be given because, “She’s an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.” He claims there are no martial assets subject to division.
Kordell Stewart did not make Porsha sign a prenup, according to accessatlanta.com, so the divorce proceedings will probably experience turbulence as they divide up the assets.
Stewart, who went by the nickname Slash during his days on the field, and William have no children together, although he does have a child from a previous relationship.
The news comes amid on-going speculation about Kordell’s sexuality.
Just three months ago Real Housewives Of Atlanta Porsha, the granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams, defended her husband during a radio interview when asked about rumours he was gay.
Power 105 FM’s Breakfast Club host Charlemagne Tha God asked Porsha in the December exchange: ‘You know there were a lot of gay rumours about Kordell at one point. He [allegedly] got caught in the park in Pittsburgh and the police didn’t want to turn him in because he was a star quarterback
Porsha responded: ‘I don’t know any details of all that. There’s lies out there on the Internet about all kinds of celebrities.
‘One thing I do [know] is my husband loves me, and he puts it down and I will be with him forever. He’s more man to me than I have ever met.’
Porsha and Kordell married on May 21, 2011. Early in 2012 Porsha suffered a miscarriage due to uterine fibrosis.
In the divorce documents, Kordell says the marriage is ‘irretrievably broken’ and that they separated, according to TMZ.
Kordell, who is now a radio sports talk show co-host with Atlanta’s WZGC 92.9 The Game, has a son Syre from a previous relationship with Tania Richardson.
Porsha Williams Stewart became famous as the newest member of Bravo’s reality show The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha joins the cast midway through the fifth season of the show.
Porsha is the grand daughter of notable civil rights leader Reverend Hosea Williams who was a contemporary of Martin Luther King, Jr. Porsha is one of the few actual natives of Atlanta who has appeared on RHOA, she currently lives in the upscale neighborhood of Buckhead.
During the season of Real Housewives of Atlanta, the couple’s relationship was often criticized by their costars. Many in the group found Kordell to be too controlling. NeNe Leakes shared her opinion on the show and her blog.
“I don’t want to judge Porsha’s relationship, because I obviously don’t live with them,” Leakes wrote. “I can only tell you what these eyes and ears hear and see. I watch the show just like you do, so based off everything I’ve seen and heard myself, it appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife!
Leakes continued, “Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell. This is not my relationship, so if Porsha likes it, I love it, and I really don’t give a sh–– what Porsha and Kordell do!”
After news broke about the divorce, Leakes tweeted:
Kordell and Porsha tried to convince their costars and fans that he wasn’t controlling, but it didn’t work. Once the controlling issues seemed to die down other issues came into play on the show. Porsha wanted to have a baby while she continued her career as a philanthropist and a reality star, but Kordell wanted her to choose.
Kordell reportedly didn’t want Porsha to do anymore reality television because he thought it was bad for his reputation and it was putting a strain on their marriage.
