Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from his reality TV star wife, Porsha Williams. The former NFL Pittsburgh Steelers player has formally filed his divorce papers at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on March 22, according to reports.
The news of the divorce filing was broken by celebrity news website TMZ, and comes just three months after his wife, Real Housewives of Atlanta reality TV star, Porsha Williams, defended him in a radio interview amid rumors about his sexuality.
In December, Porsha, the granddaughter of civil-rights leader Hosea Williams, was speaking to the Power 105 FM's Breakfast Club show when the host said: "You know there were a lot of gay rumors 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 answered, "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."
The couple were only married in May 21, 2011, and although Porsha became pregnant soon after, she suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage in early 2012. She reportedly suffered from uterine fibroids.
The NFL star has claimed in divorce documents that the marriage is "irretrievably broken," according to TMZ.
He also indicates that he will not be offering any spousal support, allegedly writing: "[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself."
