Real Housewives star Porsha Williams ‘blindsided’ by divorce

On Behalf of | Apr 3, 2013 | Child Support

When it comes to celebrity news, there are two different types of people in Texas: those that want to hear all of the juicy little secrets and those that who would rather give them their privacy. But regardless of the standpoint, the media continues to report on even the most intimate details of celebrities’ lives, regardless of whether they want the information to remain private or not.

But in some rare occurrences, celebrities even find things out about their own lives that they may not have even known. Such was the case for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams who found out that her husband, a former Pittsburgh Steelers player, filed for divorce without her knowledge. The ensuing legal battle is just a reminder at how difficult divorce can truly be sometimes.

According to Williams, she knew that their marriage was having problems but was promised by her husband Kordell Stewart that they would work on the marriage together. But she says she was blindsided a few weeks ago when she read on the internet that he husband of less than two years had already filed divorce papers but hadn’t told her yet.

Some sources have reported that Stewart may not agree to pay the requested alimony payments for Williams. Williams says that she requires the support because she quit her job to take care of Stewart’s son from a previous marriage. Because Stewart likely has custody of his son, there is a chance that Stewart may argue that she no longer requires the spousal maintenance.

We all know that divorce can be a difficult process, but when children are involved it can be that much more stressful. Although Williams and Stewart did not have any children together, other families have found themselves in similar situations but with the added concern of doing what is best for the child. In situations such as this, it’s almost always advised to seek legal presentation and do what is in the best interest of the children.
