“There’s Been A Lot Of Confusion”: Big Tigger On Split From Keshia Knight Pulliam And Her Engagement
Big Tigger said it best: “There’s been a lot of confusion going around America since New Year’s Eve.”
Sitting at his post at V-103 as host of The Big Tigger Show, the on-air personality ran down all the latest news in love and marriage in Hollywood. When it was time to announce and celebrate the engagement of a one Keshia Knight Pulliam, Tigger decided to clear the air since so many people were wondering why she was marrying a man people didn’t even know she was dating, considering Pulliam and Tigger dated for years–more than three in fact. And last time we all checked, they were still together and in love.
In case you missed it, the 36-year-old actress got engaged to Ed Hartwell, the 37-year-old former NFL player, who is also the former husband of reality star Lisa Wu. Pulliam announced her engagement on New Year’s day.
The pair presumably became an item earlier this year after Pulliam split from Tigger–a breakup no one knew had occurred. The last time Big Tigger and Pulliam were spotted together on social media was about nine months ago. So everyone was wondering how it went from this:
Only Keshia and Big Tigger know how she went from #BlessedBeyondMeasure with him to being #BlessedBeyondMeasure with Ed, but the radio personality is not spilling the beans on the end of that long-term relationship. On his radio show, Tigger said that the engagement confusion followed him all weekend long.
“Even my friends! Lots of tweets congratulating me on my new engagement. For clarity, people, I am not, nor have I ever been engaged. Ever!”
He blamed Us Weekly for making that special moment for Pulliam and Hartwell such a complicated one, as they announced the engagement but used a photo of her and the on-air personality. Despite all that, Tigger said he’s happy for his former flame. But that didn’t stop him from spilling some tea to listeners, claiming the new couple may have already tied the knot!
“The Us Weekly report had the correct news with the wrong photo. That being said, a lot of speculation going on in an epic manner, running rampant. Her and I are both two grownups, so the details about our breakup, the who, what, when, where, why, etcetera, is our business exclusively, and will remain so! Mind your own business! You know how epic it got? I saw an astrological breakdown of compatibility amongst the three parties mentioned in this particular story! Why one was more compatible than the other! I was like, ‘Ya’ll spent a lot of time on this.’ I got calls from news outlets for comments. I’m quite amazed that anybody even cared! [laughs] But this story ain’t about me, it’s about them. So with that being said, I want to wish the happy couple well. And I’ll leave with this little caveat: Apparently, rumor has it that they got married over the weekend…”
It’s a little sad that these two weren’t able to make it official because they seemed like a really cute pair. But when you snooze you lose…
Kidding! We’re just happy to see that Pulliam found love again and is thrilled to be spending her life with Hartwell. Congratulations again to the happy couple!
