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.

He is so ugly. His funny shape head. Those Veneers in his mouth he keeps showing. She was brainwashed herself and it was about time for her to be alone. Kordell was trying to dictate to her and reality sunk in and they need to be apart.

I don't know her age, but she is too young to be married to a man like him. Who knows how good
the marriage is in real life? I just know suddenly having all that money would be hard to handle for
a young girl not used to it.

Couples, start out with just liking the idea of being married and ignore the warning signs that are there. He did not just become controlling over night! In fact, woman have a gut feeling about something and tend to ingnore it, all in hopes that the person will change after marriage. If it does not feel right, do not go through with it!. That's why pre-maritial counseling should take place for alteast 6moths, and if you find out that the person isn't for you, then you can walk away!

I don't feel bad for females that don't obey their husbands and then want alimony. Kick this bitch to the curb like week old garbage. Should've obeyed and you wouldn't need support

I DON'T feel sorry for her at all. She talked about Kenya real bad. What goes around comes around. I believe he's GAY too. She should apologize to Kenya.

And Porsha will be a better woman for it. The stone ages are done did! and Kordell needs to walk. A woman does NOT have to choose between career and family, she can have it all! alone or with the right partner!

Porsha is not the sharpest pencil in the box but she deserves way better than Kordell Stewart who is nothing more than a bully.

she can get way better than him. There are lots of men that will appreciate a dumb but beautiul woman, and still respect her and treat her like a queen. He was too domineering..acting more like her dad.

I feel bad for Porsha bc she wanted to be a great wife,mother and career woman and she can be. I just wished she married a man who was looking for all in a wife, unfortunately Kordell was not the suitable mate for a woman like Porsha. I hope with time she is able to heal from this and God will send her her suitable mate I pray this time she waits on God and not make the same mistake twice.
