There’s another twist that’s surfaced, surrounding Keshia Knight-Pulliam and her future ex husband, Ed Hartwell.
A source claims that the former NFL’er believed she was cheating on him with her ex and that he is the father of her unborn child, according to the Daily Mail Online.
As previously reported, Ed filed for divorce from his wife of eight months on Monday, and allegedly, blindsided the actress, who had just announced she was pregnant. Ed has also demanded a paternity test.
On Thursday, Keshia denied cheating allegations and legally has launched a battle to keep her property and earnings from before and during the marriage away from her estranged husband.
Reportedly, Ed suspected Keshia had continued her relationship with ex-boyfriend radio/TV personality Big Tigger (real name Darian Morgan) after they were married. Keshia and Tigger were together before she started dating Ed.
The insider revealed:
Ed believes that Keshia had been having an affair with her ex-boyfriend. They dated for more than a year and even attended a White House Black History Month event together before they abruptly broke up in late 2015. Their breakup was so quiet and her relationship with Ed Hartwell happened so fast afterwards that when she announced she was married, many press outlets inadvertently ran photos of her and Tigger.
Pulliam fired back in a response to her husband’s divorce filing, demanding to keep the former couple’s lavish Atlanta home, her Cosby Show fortune and everything she earned during her eight months of marriage.
In divorce documents, Keshia has demanded to keep the house the couple shared. Their five-bedroom mansion in a suburb south of Atlanta sold in April for $500,000.
The TV star also wants to hold on to her earnings, which includes the money she earned on the Cosby Show, and property from before she was married. The source said:
Ed had suspected the couple may have maintained their sexual relationship even though she moved on with him and that the baby could actually be Tigger’s instead. Keshia is adamant that is not the case, and she’s embarrassed all of this is going on. The Cosby Show kids pride themselves on being drama-free and never being in the headlines. The fact that she is involved in some “Maury Povich-type” drama is everything she’s worked to keep away from.
Tigger has yet to comment on this rumor, nor has Keshia.
Update #2. We’ve received an exclusive statement concerning the story:
A source close to him [Big Tigger] said that he is currently out of the country and will be addressing these ridiculous rumors on his V-103 radio show in Atlanta on Monday, during his Trending Topics segment.
