Your girl Keshia Knight Pulliam is officially divorced from former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Edgerton (Ed) Hartwell II. Keshia is not only a free woman now, but she got what she wanted in the split – primary custody of their one-year-old daughter, according to TMZ.
Ed, however, was granted visitation rights to see baby Ella Grace. But if he had it his way, he would have been most happy with joint custody. That could’ve been a possibility if the divorce proceedings didn’t reveal that the ex-football player currently takes different medications to help him manage severe physical and mental problems. This type of impairment, of course, concerned the court that his decision-making skills would be effected when it comes to the baby. In addition to visitation rights, Ed has been ordered to pay $3,007 per month in child support.
The “Keshia and Ed” show saga has ended, but it had a good run for two years. Ed filed for divorce in July of 2016 after being married to Keshia for only seven months…and while she was pregnant.
According to her, it was a shock. Apparently, the man fell into the arms of another woman, and to this day, he’s still with that woman, Tonya Carroll, who is now pregnant with his child.
I am happy to see Keshia finally and legally detached from this man. Going through an un-filmed reality show type drama with an estranged husband for a couple years is exhausting and traumatizing. From the man demanding a paternity test on their daughter to fighting about what the baby’s last name should be, I’m not the one who even went through it all, but I’m tired. I can’t imagine how she feels.
Here’s to Keshia getting her entire life now that she has rid herself of that unnecessary baggage.
