Exclusive Details

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.

Kenya is having fun with this! LOL I wonder if he filed because of Sundays episode? She was dressing & acting like a hoochie on t.v. as BAPS (Holly Berry).......... Kordell probably said enough is enough and he could truly see that she was about fame, and money. How she brought her mom & sister over to their house to try on different dresses for his party, and the time she kept her brothers child was so terribly bad. She is not ready to be a wife or a mom from the example in the show, maybe a playmate but definitely not a wife & mother. So So sad. These men need to stop marrying these nothing a*z*z women just for their looks, because most of these young women now bring nothing else to a table. And as a man gets older that s*h*i*t truly plays out. Young women be aware!

This is not "so sad" as many of you are stating. This is life and the result of what happens when people are not honest with themselves or others. Kordell, about his sexuality and extreme insecurities and Porsha about the extreme need for perception over reality. They both were dishonest and unfortunately, their charade could not withstand the weight of the reality spotlight. How ironic - Porsha claimed a picture perfect life when the fact of the matter is her husband is gay - TRUTH - and she wanted perfection but needed someone else to validate what that was for her.

He's the worse husband. Usually, I don't judge people off of one hour of watching them. He is controlling and she's a push over. They're good for each other BUT he wants her to be dependent on him and she wants to become independent. I think he's a coward.

From watching the first show they appeared on I knew this was going to be the outcome, just not so quickly. If he treats her that way when the camera is on I can only imagine what is like behind close doors. I hope the best for Porsha and now she knows what not marry, hopefully she will find out what she wants to do with her life.

Kordell is an insecure loser. She did everything he wanted her to do. she is too beautiful and loyal to deserve this. I feel for you Porsha. But your next one will be your best one.

I'll Never Tell    

This is a good thing. They obviously lack communication when Porsche has to go to a therapist to be able to speak to her husband about how she feels. The Kordell I saw on RHOA is a total a**hole who treats women like they are beneath him.

Whatever    

He married her cause she's stupid and he needed a beard. She in turn married him because he could provide her with a nice lifestyle.
