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.

The Marriage was most likely broken b4 Porsha, and Kordell even appeared on "The RHOA. Kordell acts like an A**hole to Porsha, he wants pure dominance over her.

I feel bad for Porcha, but I am glad that she will no longer be under his control. Hope she learned her lesson and will be stronger next time around. She is deff able-bodied, but thats no thanks to him, she will be getting spousal because according to her on RHOA, there was no prenup. I hope she digs her LVs into his wallet and face!

Kordell is a self-centered. ego maniac who wanted a trophy wife. He did not want her to think for herself and now that she has found her voice and is speaking up for. herself. Kordell. has lost control and wants to find another victim.

i know she can make it on her own! dont you remember she said if her marriage ever ended all she wanted was her name! and i hope she stays strong and maybe she will learn like the girls tried to tell her these days a woman needs her independance, what kind of "man" tried to make a woman pick having a baby and a career? hello more than half of america works and still takes care of her babies! wishing her nothing but the best and i hope she stays on the real houswives and i hope they are there for her and offer her nothig but support!
