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.

His loss. She tried so hard to be a good wife and live up to his traditional expectations. she wanted to make a name for herself and he wasn't having it. He should've been proud that she didn't just want to sit at home and spend his money. He was not willing to compromise and that is a very important factor in a marriage.

She knew who and what she married and, until landing a spot of the show, probably had every intention of being a housewife. Fame came in, she started sniffing herself and, suddenly, she wants to be some career woman. Please. Women who find men willing to be men and take care of them and their families don't realize what a blessing that is because the women's movement has fooled you into believing you have to work outside of the home to be validated. Sad.

Kordell may not have excelled like alot of these great athletes, but he sure knows how to watch out for himself financially. Good Job. I saw that show a few times and I was suspicious about her. not being married that long and wanting kids already.

This guy is such a D-bag. She got off lucky - getting rid of him while she is still young and hot. Who tells their wife they have to choose work and a baby? It is 2013, dude. Get a clue.

KIMSTOP!!    

FYI...NONE of these "reality" shows are real people! At least Porscha wasn't married for only 72 days after a multi-million dollar exploitation/"wedding." (Unethical use of a wedding for one's own profit.) AND, she's not preggers now with another man's baby.

If Im not mistaken in one of the episodes she talks about how she is very traditional and how she marries for life and that's why she didn't sign a prenup... Hmmm somebody is lying here !

I dont feel the least bit sorry for her.She felt and acted as if she was entitled to finer things in life.kordell wanted a woman he could tell what to do and porsha was willing to do just that to have nice things to brag about .Pathetic!

She can be kind of annoying, but she's a really really sweet girl. She seemed to try to be the best wife she could be for him. What a jerk, she deserves better
