Kordell Stewart

SLASHES Marriage

to 'Real Housewives' Star

3/26/2013 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

This guy thinks he's living in the 1950s! Good luck finding an obedient little wife, Kordel! Porsha is not the sharpest tool in the shed but c'mon! He needs a mail order bride and even then there are no guarantees.

She's better off without this jerk. He is so controlling, and she allowed it. He put her in the mindset that "minding him" is how she will be a good wife. He just wanted someone young that he could control. He says on one episode, "he doesn't want to sound like her DADDY"...then why act like her parent Kordell? Wasn't he busted for having sex with a GUY in the back of a car?

He's pathetic!

I hope Porsha finds a great guy, and next time around she'll look for the red flags of men with control issues! Live and Learn!

She acts loony on the show but I refuse to be she trash. Why would someone say that about her. Cordell sucks.

I wonder if the show and the way he comes off did them in. I saw the commercial for the finale, which airs this weekend, and he nearly gets into a fight with another castmate's husband. You also see Kordell and Porsha in couples counseling.

I read elsewhere that he did not like how the show turned out, how the show portrayed him and Porsha, and forbid Porsha from returning for another season.

This makes me so sad. I loved them as a couple their relationship reminds me a lot of my own. Before the show their life was envied but she let single minded SINGLE LONELY BITCHES who is trying to strive for what she has have an opinion on her marriage n she listened. My advice to married somewhere is to not hang out with single lonely bitches.

This is so sad. It just shows how fake reality TV actually is. They look totally happy on the show.

No pre-nup? Surprising. Porsha wanted a baby. Kordell, the jerk, didn't. Child support for 18+ years, and all that. Seems he wanted out before she dropped a child on him. Just like you see with all these trophy wives. First thing..a baby. Set up for life! Don't like Prosha a bit. Stupid-stupid girl.

A likely tale from such a pompous ass. Poor Portia. A lot of thanks from such a beast. Next time Portia, think of yourself first and then your mate. Obviously, this conceited egomaniac needs to find someone who will walk behind him and pick up all the pieces he destroys! Just lie down for a minute or two and look up at the stars, there's a special one up there for you. You deserve so much better!!!!

He treated her so badly on camera can you imagine how he treated her when the cameras were turned off.

Its probably a good idea to explain what you wanna do with the rest of your life BEFORE you get married.
