Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from his reality star wife Porsha Williams.
The 40-year-old former NFL quarterback filed legal documents at the Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on March 22.
Stewart, who is known by the nickname Slash during football career, and William have no children together.
The news of the divorce comes on the heels of questions of Kordell’s sexuality. Several months ago, Porsha defended Kordell when asked about gay rumors.
Porscha, who stars on the reality show “Real Housewives Of Atlanta”, said the homosexual rumors were all lies.
Porsha and Kordell had tied the knot in May 2011.
In the divorce filing, Kordell Stewart says the marriage is “irretrievably broken”.
He states there are no marital assets to be divided, suggesting a prenuptial was signed, writing, “[She’s] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself.”
Those close to Kordell Stewart had suspicions the marriage was on the rocks.
One insider revealed, “Kordell skipped the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion taping on March 13. All the husbands and significant others were there, but he opted not to go. So that was very telling.”
The source adds, “Porsha’s got to be devastated. 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.”
