When news broke of Keshia Knight Pulliam’s husband, Ed Hartwell, filing for divorce and asking for a paternity test, it didn’t take long for the gossip blogs to insinuate that another man might be the father of the former child star’s baby.
Enter Big Tigger of Atlanta’s V-103 FM. The radio personality once dated the actress and there was rumors of an engagement between the couple.
On Monday (Aug. 1), Big Tigger set the record straight on his morning radio program. During his Trending Topics segment, the 43-year-old former rapper refused to mention Pulliam by name (which is kind of odd?) but clarified that he is in no way the father of her impending baby.
“There’s been lots of conversation and innuendo suggesting that I might be the father of someone’s child,” he stated. “There is zero percent chance that the child that is being alleged might be mine, is mine.”
“[I] could not have impregnated a female that I have not spoken to nor seen since our breakup,” he continued. “Any insinuation, speculation, intimation or rumor of me being the father of that young lady’s beautiful child on the way, just not true.”
Big Tigger insisted that he respects “the institution of marriage” and wants to go through nuptials one time. He also called Hartnell’s demand for a paternity test in his divorce filing “corny.”
Both Pulliam and Hartwell offer two different stories of their messy divorce.
While all of this is sad, we still wish the best for both parties. Hopefully, they can resolve this without too much bickering back and forth.
