What is even more shocking than the Ed Hartwell and Keshia Knight Pulliam marriage last winter?
The fact that they are getting divorced less than eight months later.
Yes, you read that right.
And get this: Pulliam had no idea that he was filing to end their short union (but she probably knows now).
The former NFL star has filed for divorce in a Fulton County, Ga., courthouse in downtown Atlanta under then Edgerton Hartwell II. This comes just seven months after marriage — and just one week after Pulliam announced that she is pregnant with his child, tmz.com reports.
You recall that Hartwell and Pulliam shocked all of popular culture — and the celebrity world — when they announced they were married after secretly dating for four months. But the former Rudy character on the legendary “Cosby Show” gave all indications that they were in love.
Hartwell, however, who was previously married to ex-“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Lisa Wu (who was previously married with kids with R&B singer Keith Sweat), wants out of the marriage and to go back living the single life, YBF reports.
Interestingly enough, Hartwell told this writer he was going to get married to another woman just several months before marrying Pulliam. No word about that engagement to that mysterious woman has reached the public.
For now, Hartwell has only one thing on his mind, and it’s not Pulliam’s happiness.
“Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby,” Hartwell said to the entertainment publication.
There had been indications there was slight tumult in the marriage, several blogs have reported, as they were seen bickering in public. Still, no one saw this coming.
Pulliam is said to have 30 days to respond to Hartwell’s court filings.
