Ed Hartwell: Keshia Knight Pulliam “Should Be Ashamed Of Herself” For Falsely Claiming He’s Abusive
Ed Hartwell denies ever being abusive toward soon-to-be ex-wife Keshia Knight Pulliam after she filed court documents to the contrary.
Earlier this month, Pulliam alleged Hartwell had been attempting to “obstruct [her] pregnancy,” by engaging in “certain underhanded and unusual conduct that [Pulliam] believes to be designed to cause [Pulliam] to miscarry her unborn child.”
Beyond those ambiguous accusations, Pulliam also claimed in court documents that Hartwell was “mentally and emotionally abusive.” She also accused him of being connected to “threatening text messages” she received from an unknown phone number in Las Vegas, which is the former pro ball player’s hometown.
Hartwell, on the other hand, said Pulliam “should be ashamed of herself for ever making such false and offensive allegations,” in court documents filed in response to her claim August 17. Adding, “If either party has been mentally and emotionally abusive toward the other, it is [Pulliam],” in response to her charge her husband should “be immediately ordered to submit to a psychological evaluation … [for his] deep-seated rage and uncontrollable anger.”
The 38-year-old also declares he’s not here for the media spectacle that has become their relationship — an ironic charge given the accusation from the athlete’s ex-wife, Lisa Wu Hartwell, that Pulliam is the one who has been shopping a reality show idea for years.
“The Plaintiff [Hartwell] emphatically denies that he has exhibited despicable character and egregious demeanor by giving interviews to the media for financial gain,” the document reads. “The Plaintiff would like to remind the Defendant [Pulliam] that she is the person who sat for an interview which was aired over a two (2) day period following the filing of her Answer to this Complaint.”
Hartwell also denies accusations of infidelity, saying “he is not involved in a relationship with anyone.”
Looks like we can throw out any hope of an amicable co-parenting situation at this time. Hopefully these two get to a better place before the birth of their daughter.
