Kordell Stewart has filed for divorce from his wife Porsha Williams, one of the stars of “The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.” According to TMZ, the former NFL star filed papers on last Friday, March 22. The cause of the break-up is unknown but Stewart said the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and the two are currently separated. Kordell is requesting that Porsha not receive any spousal support due to her being able to obtain a job and take care of herself. TMZ also revealed that there are no marital assets to divide, which suggest Porsha signed a pre-nup despite her claim to the contrary. The two would have celebrated their 2-year wedding anniversary on May 21.
