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.

Porsha - since he's gay, and not proud and out....you could always go after him for portraying himself as being straight..,,,,ask a lawyer about "nuptial fraud".....

The reason why they are not together is because he is GAY you can clearly see how uncomfortable he was when he was peaking to Walter at the party. I despise Down Low Brothers

Don't really care for his ass anyway. He wants someone to control not a wife.

I thought he was an ass on the show when he found the pregnancy test in the bathroom, freaked out she wanted children, PRETENDED he was ok with it only to later tell her she had to choose between work and a baby making her cry. We're not in the stone ages, actually even cave woman gave birth and still worked. I knew then he didnt really love her and was a selfish type who wanted to deny his wife of children. She deserves better regardless of how shallow she is at times.

See what happens when a woman places all of her eggs in one basket. My mother always taught me "god bless the woman that has her OWN."

Glad to see he's not as dumb as she is. Not sure how he tolerated that fluff.

That Porsha looks weird. What's wrong with her eyes? I think both these people are ... strange. He's a control freak who wants his "woman" to do what he says. She's not very smart, from what I could see on tv, and she thinks she's got some big career ahead of her, because of this trash tv show she's on. I say if he really loved her, he'd let her try to see what she can do, and if she fails, she fails. And if she really loved him, she'd try to fulfill her obligations to her home, husband, marriage, while also trying to work this career she sees. Same rules for both of them. Support each other, love each other. No, hard to find in the real world, but that's my opinion.

Another thing, when you give up your identity as a woman and marry someone who has to support you, you lose all power and end up at his beck and call...so to speak. He can get sex anywhere and doesnt have to get it from you so if you become "difficult", he can get rid of you. You are replaceable and you can end up haivng to either depend on someone else or be your own person and depend on yourself. Have a job before you marry and keep the job after you marry, then you can call the shots for yourself.

I agree with him that she is an able bodied person and should support herself. many of these women marry these guys for their money so if they don't satisfy them, they should not be reaping any benefits. She should get out and work for a living...ooops, she thought that was what she was doing

It could be a plot set in place to boost ratings like NeNe and Greg, but I just hope it won't end up like Shari and Charles.

I feel bad for her. She appears to really love him. The union was not strong enough to handle the negativity of the show
Look how Teresa and Joe manage.
