Kordell Stewart Divorcing Porsha Williams
Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from Porsha Williams of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, according to TMZ. The website cited the Fulton County Superior Court in Ga. that Stewart, 40, filed divorce papers on March 22. The documents allegedly indicated that Stewart said the marriage was “irretrievably broken” and that he does not think he should be required to pay spousal support because Porsha is “able-bodied” and “capable of supporting herself.”
Stewart said in the documents that he and Williams were separated, but Williams felt she was “misled” by Stewart and learned about the divorce “in the media,” one of Williams’s reps told ABC News.
Stewart and Williams married in 2011, and The Real Housewives of Atlanta actually picked up on some of the problems between the two, most notably there disagreements about having children. Stewart reportedly believed Williams had to choose between either being a mother or having a philanthropy career.
Stewart played 11 seasons in the NFL, and earned the nickname “Slash” because of his versatility as player; he played quarterback, but also lined up as a wide receiver and running back. His best season came in 2001, when he led the Pittsburgh Steelers to a 13-3 record, was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Year and was participated in the Pro Bowl. —Hal Sundt
