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 girl is as dumb as a box of rocks (or at least that's how she's portrayed on the show). Very pretty, but not much more going for her other than her looks.

Ummm, I'm just guessing, but shouldn't they have talked about this before they married?

From watching the show they did seem like a bad match. I'm sure she's devastated.

TMZ uses the term "star" to describe people so much the word has lost its meaning.

Well, looks like this hoe has to get back on the grind so she can find some other sorry sucker to sink her claws into and mooch off of.

I knew it! She was so miserable and always trying to act like the perfect wife. I'm sure once her family started getting a good glimpse inside their marriage they probably put pressure on her to stop allowing him to control her. She's too young for the type of man he is, old fashioned, disciplined, dictator. Good luck Porsha you're a beautiful young woman and many men would love to allow you to be free and happy to chase your dreams.

I never liked him anyways. She needs to be in tune with herself first before she can be with someone else. She'll get alimony atleast.
