It looks like Porsha Stewart may be a Real Housewife no longer, as her NFL husband Kordell has reportedly filed for divorce! The petition filed in an Atlanta court states that their 2-year marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that the pair are currently separated.
A rep for the Real Housewives of Atlanta couple have issued a statement speaking out about the matter. “This is a personal and private family matter for Kordell and his family. This was a very difficult decision for Kordell. I hope everyone understands. Kordell’s ongoing concern has been and remains his son’s best interest.”
Despite the carefully worded press release, a report from TMZ leads us to believe that Kordell might not be ready to play nice. Apparently he plans to argue that he doesn’t need to pay child support because Porsha is “an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”
According to cast-mates, the marriage had been on the rocks for quite some time. Costar NeNe Leakes had some strong statements about Kordell’s controlling nature. “[I]t appears that Kordell is talking to his daughter and not his wife. Porsha can’t seem to do much without getting permission from Kordell.”
He apparently didn’t show up to the RHWOA reunion, which raised even more red flags about their relationship status. “Porsha’s got to be devastated,” says a friend of the couple. “Her whole identity is about being Kordell’s partner, and I know she really wanted to start a family with him. They were actively trying. This is going to be a huge blow.”
