Apparently Kordell Stewart has been duking it out in court with his son’s mother, Lae Tania Richardson for quite a few years now—since 2011 to be exact. But according to Radar Online Stewart and Richardson were finally able to come to an agreement when it comes to the custodial rights of their 9-year-old son, Syre.
Court documents reveal that Stewart initially requested full custody of the child in 2011 after learning that Richardson was looking to relocate to Los Angeles with the boy for a new job opportunity. However, Richardson objected, arguing that Stewart barely ever spent time with his son. She also told the court that “after filing the lawsuit, Plaintiff/Father went almost nine days without calling his son or seeking to text his son,” adding that Stewart “has not spent a consecutive five-day period with his son ever except during this litigation” and “has never taken his son on any vacation.”
Stewart’s ex-wife, Porsha Williams, was also mentioned in the legal dispute when the defense pointed out that the retired NFLer “has flown with his new wife/former fiancée to California, Las Vegas, Miami, Oregon, New York multiple times during just 2010 and 2011,” but had failed to take his son anywhere.
According to their new custody agreement, no child support will be paid by either party and they will share joint custody with Kordell getting primary physical custody. The new agreement also states that “Mother and the Child will have to right to communicate with each other over the telephone at Father’s residence at any reasonable time” and that “The Father shall be the final decision maker should the parties disagree” on issues pertaining to Syre’s welfare.
This dude must have an amazing legal team.
A few weeks ago news broke that Porsha Williams walked away from her divorce from retired NFL star Kordell Stewart without alimony, a cash settlement, real estate or health insurance. This of course was a bit odd, since word on the street was that the couple didn’t even sign a prenuptial agreement prior to saying “I do.” The 30-something “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star spoke out about the settlement during a recent appearance on “Bethenny” and according to Porsha, she walked away with nothing by choice.
“I didn’t ask for anything,” the “Flat Line” singer simply stated. “Right now in the press it’s, ‘Porsha didn’t get anything, poor Porsha,’ and people are feeling bad for me and feeling sorry for me because I didn’t get anything and they think that we went to trial and I lost.”
She adds that a widespread misconception about the divorce is that her and Kordell went to trail when in fact, they did not.
“I didn’t go to trial, I chose not to go to court. So there was no judgment.”
It turns out that the entire process was emotionally draining, which is why she opted not to go to trial.
“It just tore me apart to go through this divorce,” Porsha explained. “It was so traumatic! And it ruled over my life. Every single day. And I wanted the freedom – I wanted to be done with it.”
“Before we had court the next week, I woke up, I called my attorney… ‘I said listen: I’m done with this. Get the divorce decree I’m coming to sign it.”
One thing she did request, however, was for Kordell to cover her medical bills.
“I said the only thing I want him to do is pay for my hospital bills,” she said before confessing that Kordell didn’t have health insurance on her or his son. “I didn’t have insurance. He didn’t have insurance on me or his son.”
Kordell agreed to pay Porsha’s medical bills and she says all is well.
“So I’m good! I’m completely independent.”
And there you have it.
What do you think of Porsha’s decision not to go to trial?
Are the #Porshians ready? No, seriously, that’s what Porsha Williams calls her fans these days. Anywho, she stopped by 106 & Park on Wednesday evening to chat about her new music, Real Housewives of Atlanta drama, relationship rumors and speculation that she had plastic surgery. But one other big reason she stopped by was to give folks a taste of her new single, “Flatline,” which she ended up singing a snippet of live (“NO MUSIC!” *clap* *clap* *clap* *clap*). People on Twitter weren’t really crazy about it at all (“Why in the hell did they embarrass Porsha Williams by making her sing live?”), but we didn’t think she was that bad (just a little flat…but I don’t sound like Adele so I won’t critique). Check out what she had to say and her performance below and let us know what you thought:
On Kenya Calling Her A Beard On RHOA:
“I feel like Kenya would say anything to just make an entire situation that has to do with me look crazy. I think Kenya was trying to call him gay, for sure, and he should take that up with her. I was a wife. I loved my husband when I was married to him and that’s what my title was. “
Being In Ludacris And Trillville Music Videos Back In The Day:
“I’m not even sure. It was around the time in Atlanta when all the girls who wanted to be aspiring models, we did videos. I was also in Ludacris’ video, “Diamond in the Back” and a couple others as well. It was talent managers who would be like, ‘You want to do a video?’ And that’s one of the ones I did.”
Confusing The Underground Railroad For A Train:
“I was disappointed in myself. Of course, my grandfather, who’s beloved to me, he’s no longer here so, mainly for me I was disappointed. Of course you want to represent yourself well on television and there are TVs there and people are watching you and all of that. So for me, it was really embarrassing…It was literally a brain fart.”
If She Could Change Anything About How She Handled Her Marriage:
“To be honest with you, I wouldn’t change anything I did. I feel like I was a wife who loved my husband. I trusted him to do everything he said he was gonna do. When you’re dealing in love and you’re acting out of love, you can’t go wrong with that…I say, no regrets, lessons learned. And that’s what “Flatline ” is about. You forgiving yourself. You can love somebody so hard that you lose yourself, but you gotta build yourself back up, you gotta revive yourself from being flatlined and that’s what that song is about.”
“Yes, I have. Recently I did. I can’t tell you, you have to guess. I ain’t gonna tell ya [laughs].”
Why She’s No Longer Porsha Stewart:
“You know what, the divorce process was long and hard for me…I waved that flag of being a Stewart loud and proud. But I had an epiphany, and I said, ‘I’m not going to let this rule over my life.’ That’s when I decided to say I don’t want no money, I don’t want nothing, I just want out. And I want to be Porsha Williams so I can build that name up and so I can leave my own legacy.”
Her Relationship Status Now:
“I’m single. I feel like if you’re not married, you’re single [laughs]. There isn’t anybody special enough for me to announce to the world. I’m a hopeless romantic, I love love…if I love somebody and I’m proud of him, I’ll let everybody know, I’ll be the first to let everybody know.”
Success Of Her Single “Flatline” So Far:
“It was amazing. We released it at 12, it went to 37, I woke up and it was at 3. I just have to say, I feel blessed. I felt the song and I knew what it meant to me, but I had no idea that it would mean so much to so many people. It’s really mapping out my emotions during and after my last relationship. Everybody’s been through a breakup and you have to admit to yourself, I loved that person so much I flatlined in that relationship! It was DOA from the start and I didn’t even know it. I needed to get that out and those pent up emotions so I bared my soul.”
If She’s Heard From Kordell About It:
“No I haven’t heard anything from him and I really haven’t looked to hear from him. This is really for me, this was for me and it’s a song that represents the feelings that anybody feels when you go through a break up. “
You can check out Porsha singing at the 6:00 mark, because the first part of the video is “hot seat” questions (which you can read above). Check her out and let us know what you think.
“If She Hadn’t Been Married To Kordell, She Would Have Never Landed The Housewives Gig”: Kordell’s Friends Say Porsha Used Him
Even though their divorce is final now and both parties have been rumored to be dating other people, Radar Online says that sources from Kordell Stewart’s “camp” are still talking crap about Porsha Williams, saying that she was shady and used the former football star. According to these friends, who reached out to Radar Online, when she met Stewart, she made it seem like she had all these things going for her, but once they were together, she was too codependent–until she wanted to be on reality TV:
“When [Kordell] met Porsha, she claimed to have all these jobs and opportunities going on, but she really didn’t. She didn’t try to be independent from him and just wanted to be Kordell’s wife – and now she’s nobody.”
Not “nobody” though…The source continues:
“She used him and took advantage of the situation in hopes that it would get her to the next level financially and professionally. Honestly, if she hadn’t been married to Kordell, she would have never landed the Housewives gig because she had nothing else going for herself outside of him.
The lack of truthfulness by Porsha during the divorce was very confusing and hurtful to Kordell… He’s ready to move on and do what is best for he and his son.”
Of course, as we reported late last week, Porsha has since walked away from their two-and-a-half year marriage empty-handed (no alimony or assets), and has already been rumored to be dating everyone from a dictator’s son, to a celebrity, but as for Kordell, who was previously linked to Towanda Braxton, one of the sources says that he’s not ready to date:
“He’s not ready to settle down with one person right now. He’s looking for someone who is self-sufficient and can take care of herself. He needs someone who is driven and intelligent.”
What do you think about what they had to say?
This week we were sad to announce Porsha Stewart will not receive a dime from her divorce settlement from ex-husband, Kordell Stewart. Other misfortunate occurrences were from mothers. A Florida mother called 911 when she saw two children drowning in a pool, not realizing they were her two-year-old twins. Another mother, desperate to end her and her children’s lives drove their family car into the ocean until two rescuers saved the day. As for fathers, Lil Boosie spoke about his daughter and her use of the n-word. In the world of love and romance, a source told US Weekly who is Lupita Nyong’o’s boyfriend- you’ll be surprised! It is a rapper. To wrap this week up, Aretha Franklin won the shade trophy of the year, Kordell made an appearance on RHOA and Scandal’s new episode will change your life.
“She Was SO Disrespectful”: Kordell Returns To Blast Porsha And Her Family As Mexico Trip Begins; RHOA Recap
Real Housewives of Atlanta is back, and the ladies are in Mexico! But before we can get to the early drama in Mexico, we have to discuss what happened before folks boarded the plane; this includes NeNe bashing Marlo, Marlo bashing NeNe, and of course, the return of Kordell, who was too ready to set the record straight about Porsha.
Last night’s episode of “Scandal” was supposed to change our lives. We don’t know if it did all that but it did shake things up a bit. And it was certainly fun to watch. They left us with a lingering question, “Who Got Shot?” Let’s get into it.
If you ask Peter Thomas if he’s way too nosy when it comes to what’s going on with the ladies and their relationships on Real Housewives of Atlanta, he would probably say no. But if you ask the folks I chat with on Sunday nights on Twitter, he’s way too invested in other people’s business, and that’s not a good thing (NeNe likes to call it “b***ha**ness”). But in the RHOA Bravo blog, Cynthia defended her man and said that “I can never be mad at him for having an opinion.”
Peter has always maintained a friendly relationship with all the men that he has been introduced to through the ladies. He is cool with all of them. He calls them whenever he feels like it and is happy to answer the phone when they call him — Apollo, Gregg, Todd, Kordell, and of course Walter. The men have their own relationships, and I think it’s great that they all get along. It’s seems pretty ridiculous to assume that the guys would stop being cool just because they are no longer in a relationship with one of the ladies or are having issues with them.
When NeNe and Gregg went through their divorce, Peter always made himself available to talk to Gregg if he wanted to talk. I loved when Peter had Phaedra’s back and got Apollo together about texting Kenya. When Kordell was not there to support Porsha at the reunion, Peter was the first (and the only one) to express his disappointment. He supported Porsha and was mad as hell at Kordell for not showing up to hold her down. Unfortunately (shortly after the reunion) it became public knowledge that Kordell filed for divorce from Porsha on Twitter. Now I was also mad as hell at him and my heart completely went out to Porsha. Clearly, none of this is really anybody’s business, but I think at that point everyone was a little upset and we all felt bad for Porsha.
With that said, I didn’t see anything wrong with Peter talking or going to visit Kordell. If for no other reason than to find out if he had lost his damn mind! Who files for divorce on Twitter? It just all seemed so crazy and out of character. I knew Peter wanted to talk to Kordell but wasn’t sure Kordell wanted to talk to him after defending Porsha at the reunion. In time (long story short), they did eventually sit down and talk. After hearing both sides, it sounded like it was a win-win for both of them. I can’t speak for Kordell, but Porsha definitely seems to be very happy and is moving on with her new life!
FYI: Why did I not tell Porsha that Peter and Kordell talked? The same reason why I don’t call NeNe, Phaedra, Kenya, or Kandi when Peter talks to or gets together with their men. The guys talk outside of us, and since we are all grown, I’m OK with that. My relationships are with the ladies, not the men. I don’t have any relationships with their men outside of them. Posha and I are still getting to know each other and don’t really talk much outside of when we’re together with the group. I may get an occasional text or phone call from her every now and then about a question she may have or some information she may need. I did reach out after I heard about the divorce to let her know that I was only a phone call away if she wanted to grab a cocktail and talk. I always enjoy all the ladies when I talk to them or see them, however the only one I talk and spend time with consistently is NeNe.
FYI: Peter may not always have the best sense of timing, best tone, or be politically correct when it comes to voicing his opinions. However, I can never be mad at him for having an opinion.
I think Peter means well, and though he’s nosy, he’s pointed out some things that at times did need to be called out (including telling NeNe about her piss poor behavior at the charity gala and the aforementioned time he called out Kordell for not being there for Porsha during last year’s reunion). However, his prying into Porsha’s marriage on Sunday’s episode was a bit much. But what do you think?
Porsha Williams may have only walked away from her marriage to Kordell Stewart with nothing more than the name she walked in with, but if recent rumors are true, her future is looking quite lavish.
According to TMZ, the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star is following the footsteps of her arched nemesis Kenya Moore and dating a wealthy man from the Motherland. The African heir reportedly goes by the name of Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue. He is the son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who has been President of Equatorial Guinea since 1979.
According to reports, Mbasogo is a harsh and brutal leader, who is known for having his political opponents tortured and his predecessor executed. He is also known for exploiting his country’s oil wealth for personal gain while many of the country’s inhabitants live in poverty. His son, Mangue, however, lives in Malibu and has reportedly been busy showering Porsha with pricey gifts that include Louboutin shoes, Chanel items and a Rolls Royce—all of which have reportedly been uploaded to Porsha’s Instagram page. While we were able to locate the images on Porsha’s Instagram profile and it’s quite obvious that some of them were gifted, at this point it can’t really be confirmed whether or not they actually came from Mangue. Fans are already bashing her for dating a “dictator’s son.”
“You’re a POS. Saw this on TMZ. Dating a dictator’s son? Go f yourself you gold-digging sl*t. I feel sorry for people like you,” one Instagram user angrily wrote.
“Blood money. Be useful to yourself. Get a job or something,” another man chimed in. “Stop depending on men for material things. So many African children dying of hunger and here you go showing off the gift bought with their starving money. Karma is a b***h. God will remember you and him one day.”
Porsha has yet to comment on the rumors.
If you thought you saw Porsha shed some tears on “Real Housewives of Atlanta” before, you can bet the reality star is really sobbing now, as TMZ reports the divorcée just walked away from her split from Kordell Stewart with nothing but the name she came in with.
According to legal documents, Porsha will not receive alimony, or NFL retirement money, or a cash-out, or health insurance, or even a house — and she has to pay off her own credit card balances. Two things Porsha will get to keep are the Mercedes she drove and her engagement ring. TMZ also says she’ll receive $19,000 for her lawyer’s fees and will get to keep all of her personal belongings like jewelry, clothes…weaves, etc.
Kordell, on the other hand, made out like a bandit, remaining in possession of two homes, two plots of land, a 2013 Mercedes and a 2010 Porsche, his full retirement benefits, and 100% interest in his companies.
Porsha better hope she finds a storyline to maintain her position on RHOA next season or we guarantee we’ll be writing a story soon about her 8,000 square foot home going into foreclosure. SMH good luck girl.
“When A Woman States She Married A Man To ‘Erase’ His ‘Tainted’ Celebrity, I Hear ‘I Was His Beard.’”
On Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta blog, Kenya Moore shared her thoughts about all that transpired during Sunday night’s episode, including Phaedra’s digs at her (she called her man-less and “Moore whore”), NeNe’s treatment of Marlo, and of course, her confusion by Porsha Williams’ accounts of her relationship with Kordell, and why they married in the first place.
What grown woman threatens her friend to discontinue being friends with them because they don’t like him or her? I felt bad for Marlo, because she was always a good friend of NeNe’s and her biggest supporter and she really hurt her feelings. And the way she cursed out Cynthia who simply tried talking to her about Marlo… I thought her stripper days were behind her, but she is really showing her ass. They are both better off without her.
When a woman states she married a man to “erase” his “tainted” celebrity, I hear “I was his beard.” I’ve heard half a dozen accounts on what her marriage was, and it’s clear Porsha can’t keep up with her own statements. I don’t care about Kordell’s sexuality any more than I care about their marriage. But I do care about the truth. I’m not sure how one “slays mud” as Porsha said, but that damage was already done in the beginning of her divorce by calling Kordell 50 different gay queens. They were married less than 2 years and have both moved on. Now that she has to make a way for herself, I wish her well. Whether it’s a short-term marriage as theirs was, or a serious relationship, all teach us how to choose better partners. Hopefully, for the right reasons next time around.
There are varying degrees of shade. There is funny shade, warning shade, tea shade, and mean girl shade. I’m the shade queen and no one throws shade better than me! With that said, I usually don’t hit below the belt with mean girl shade… dramatic pause… Unless someone hits me there first.
I love it when people criticize me for inquiring or commenting on someone’s marriage when I’m not married. Well, I don’t have to smoke crack to know that crack kills; I don’t have to jump off a bridge to know that I can drown; and I don’t have to marry someone for the sake of being in a bad marriage so that I can say I’m someone’s wife. A ring doesn’t define me. Call me a hopeless romantic, but I’d rather be unmarried or in a loving relationship than be in an arranged marriage or with someone who acts as though they can’t stand me half the time.
Phaedra’s immature name-calling is as tired as her blaming me for Apollo’s whorish ways. She has unjustly targeted me for her miserable marriage and unfaithful husband often calling me “manless.” Taking a page from her playbook, any woman can get a man, all they have to do is visit a prison yard and get pregnant. I’m not the other woman for her to hate. In fact, she should be thanking me for not being interested in Apollo. I never was and I never will be. We know his eyes are never on her and that’s painful for any woman to experience. We have all been there and we all see who Apollo really is. Unfortunately, I don’t think she is capable of the truth or interested in facts, just slander.
Very interesting. I will say, compared to what Porsha has said in past interviews about her marriage, the things she said during Sunday’s episode were definitely confusing, however, I didn’t get “beard” from her statements about their relationship. Either way, Kenya goes way too hard for other people’s marriages…make that Kenya AND Peter.
What do you think about what she had to say?
“She Was SO Disrespectful”: Kordell Returns To Blast Porsha And Her Family As Mexico Trip Begins; RHOA Recap
After another break because of the Academy Awards (well, that’s what we assumed), Real Housewives of Atlanta is back, and the ladies are in Mexico! But before we can get to the early drama in Mexico, we have to discuss what happened before folks boarded the plane; this includes NeNe bashing Marlo, Marlo bashing NeNe, and of course, the return of Kordell, who was too ready to set the record straight about Porsha. Let’s chat.
