Former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell has filed for divorce from Cosby Shows alum Keshia Knight Pulliam. The actress recently revealed that she’s pregnant with her first child, a girl, and is due in January 2017.
According to YBF, Hartwell filed divorce papers in Fulton County yesterday (July 25), citing irreconcilable differences, including “constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together.” Hartwell apparently wants a paternity test, a rep told YBF.
The couple had been married for less than eight months, after having a surprise wedding following their engagement on New Year’s Eve. The couple was married just two weeks later.
“It was my dream,” she said on her podcast, Kandidly Keshia. “We did it literally in our living room in our home .… We invited people. They had no clue they were coming to a wedding.”
The YBF reported that Pulliam wasn’t even aware her husband had filed for divorce (though she clearly has to be now). The YBF said sources close to the couple noticed constant bickering going on but were generally surprised that Hartwell actually filed for divorce.
The publication goes on to claim that Hartwell thought Pulliam was “spoiled,” which caused a lot of their disagreements. The couple dated for only four months prior to getting married. Pulliam was previously romantically linked to hip-hop radio host/tv personality, Big Tigger.
The couple has not publicly addressed the split.
