t’s officially over. In less than nine months, the divorce between Porsha and Kordell Stewart have been completed. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star will return to Williams, dropping her married name. Kordell filed for for divorce earlier this year with Porsha stating that she was blindsided, finding out on Twitter. In the months since, the pair has battled it out very publicly, feuding over spousal support and Porsha has hinted on the show that her estranged husband was gay, which Kordell has steadily denied.
Kordell’s lawyer explained,
As a single dad, Kordell wanted to put his best foot forward by doing what was right in the interest of Syre [his son prior to his marriage to Porsha.] However, the lack of truthfulness by Porsha during the divorce process has been very confusing and hurtful to Kordell and his son…
Porsha will now have the life she so desperately desires. We are also hopeful that Porsha will stop vilifying Kordell at every opportunity. For reasons we cannot understand, she displayed reckless abandonment of anything close to the truth over the last eight months.
Kordell is very encouraged that Porsha will not continue to use his last name, Stewart. She previously stated she was keeping Kordell’s last name, which made Kordell very concerned about the damage it could cause. However, she reconsidered and decided to restore her maiden name Williams. Kordell now believes he can restore the Stewart name and brand, for which it has been known through many generations, one of character, integrity, honesty and truthfullness.
Porsha who has yet to release an official statement posted the following picture with the caption on Instagram,
