Keshia Knight Pulliam: Ed Hartwell Late On Child Support
Keshia Knight Pulliam claims that her estranged husband and baby daddy Ed Hartwell is often late with child support payments, according to a report. The actress and former NFL’er share a 5-month-old daughter, Ella Grace. Keshia and Ed are in the middle of finalizing their divorce. In the mean time, Keshia reportedly is asking a judge to have all of her future child support payments be sent directly from his NFL retirement or disability money, to ensure she receives payment on time.
Back in April, theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reported that Keshia accused Ed of taking a daily cocktail of prescription drugs — which leaves him drowsy during the day – and the actress stated that she feared for their infant’s safety around him.
The actress says he takes OxyContin/oxycodone (a narcotic), anti-depressants and a plethora of other drugs, which causes him to be drowsy and not alert.
She pointed out the drugs are to treat his alleged physical, mental and emotional problems that resulted from injuries he sustained while in the NFL. Keshia said that she fears for their newborn being around Ed, claiming she witnessed him burst into a violent rage before the divorce was filed.
Lastly, she recently learned Ed was living with his new girlfriend. At the time, she said that didn’t know the woman, but said if her child will be living there, she wanted a court appointed official to investigate the home to make sure it’s safe and to also determine if the girlfriend may pose a threat to their child.
She was also seeking the court official to evaluate Ed and his girlfriend’s physical, emotional and mental abilities to care for a child.
