Keshia Knight Pulliam's Husband Has Georgia Fire Sale Days After Filing for Divorce

EXCLUSIVE

Ed Hartwell curiously unloaded his Georgia mansion for an enormous loss just two days after blindsiding Keshia Knight Pulliam with divorce papers.

We've learned Hartwell sold the 6 bedroom, 8,000 square foot home for $690k ... he'd had it on and off the market since 2012 before finally selling late last month. Ed originally bought the house for $1.268 mil in 2005 ... so he lost around $580k on the property.

The timing of the sale is interesting ... Ed owned the home well before he and Keshia got married, so it's his property regardless. As for why the fire sale ... no one's talking, but you gotta wonder if he's bracing for lots of legal expenses. 

As TMZ reported -- the two are currently locked in a bitter court battle ... which includes nasty paternity issues and claims of emotional abuse.
