Kordell Stewart -- the former Pittsburgh Steelers star -- has filed for divorce from his reality star wife Porsha Williams ... TMZ has learned.

According to Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia, the 40-year-old NFL alum -- who went by the nickname "Slash" during his playing days -- filed for divorce on March 22.

Stewart and Williams were married on May 21, 2011 -- they have no children together. Stewart has a son from a previous relationship.

Williams currently stars on "Real Housewives of Atlanta."

The issue of children came up often on the reality show -- Porsha wanted to have kids AND a career in charity work ... but Kordell told her she had to choose.

2:10 PM PT -- Porsha says she was blindsided by Kordell's divorce filing, claiming she learned about it from a website.

7:49 AM PT -- According to the divorce docs, obtained by TMZ, Kordell says the marriage is "irretrievably broken" ... and claims the two are currently separated.

It seems Kordell also believes he shouldn't have to pay Porsha a single cent in spousal support ... claiming, "[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself."

Kordell also says there are no marital assets subject to division ... which suggests there is a prenuptial agreement in play.

NeNe figured him out right from the start. He's too controlling and I can't see any women in this day and age to stay with a man like him. She's a beautiful women and she'll find someone who will treat her the way she deserves to be treated not like a dog on a leash. She was very good to him.

To you people who think she's a gold digger, newsflash....there are black people who were born with a silver spoon in their mouth as well. Porsha Williams is one of them. She doesn't need a man's money. She has her own money. My guess is that the prenup was to protect what she has.

Kordell's net worth is $22 million. Porsha's is $16 million. So much for the gold digger theory.

When he married her, with her being so much younger than him, he must have thought he could mold her and control her. Never mind what she wanted. His way or no way. Porsha, be glad you can keep it movin' --- without this loser!

Welp, Boasting over the "Picture perfect marriage" is always a clear sign that it is not. She was also very immature in their relationship. She may be beautiful, but she lacks brains and her own identity. And no matter how old fashioned and womanizing the claims of Kordell being, No man wants a dumb woman in marriage that can be pushed over (Long term). He also does not need to be married, and nether does Porsha.

He's an unbelievable *******. The Control freak has other issues. He tried hard not to show he's a dick, but now we really see him for what he is. She's much better off without him... She didn't need 2 daddies !!!

She was not blind sided. Porsha was so concentrated on proving to the world that she was "Happily Ever after" that the fantasy folded. And many times women in this specific situation force the hand of marriage in a man that is not worth marring for the sake of the fantasy rather than establishing a foundation worthy of being truly and equally compatible with someone of the same nature. He did not lie to her. He let her know from the jump what type of man he was, and what his expectations in a wife he was looking for. Out of desperation in delusion, she chose to marry him when she should have waited for the right man. So I blame her. Blindsided my ass. She was not dumb, just immature in her choice in a man. And because she wants that picture perfect fantasy in being married, she will fall into the same situation if she does not learn to be not Codependent.

I feel like Kordell only divorcing her because, she don't wanna sit down somewhere and have his damn babies, he's controlling and I really think he was never really in Love with her Foreal anyway she's very beautiful, and she's not a follower I think she'll be fine and will find a that knows her worth and not just her beauty..<3

She obviously married him for his fame and money. What else does he really have to offer?

If the rumors are true about him being gay, I just hopes she walks away from him with her health still in tact!! I would be concerned I were her!
