Keshia Knight-Pulliam recently spoke with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ to share her side of the story on her pending divorce from Ed Hartwell. Now, Hartwell comes forward to share HIS side. In an interview with Page Six TV, the former NFL star claims that Keshia was “so fixated on getting pregnant”, and he suspects she went behind his back to do it.

“she wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn’t have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby. That’s something she really did want to do.”

Keshia Knight-Pulliam has finally come forward for an exclusive with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ to tell her side of the divorce scandal that’s rocked Hollywood and has social media buzzing!

The 37-year-old actress says she was blindsided by her husband, former NFL player, Ed Hartwell’s decision to file for divorce, as well as suggesting a paternity test of their unborn baby girl.

Hartwell filed for divorce from her on Tuesday, just days after Keshia announced she was pregnant, and nearly seven months after the two were married.

Keshia gave her one and only interview on the drama with ‘Entertainment Tonight’ to make things clear and shoot down rumors that she’s cheated. Press play below!

We didn’t see this coming….

A rep for Ed Hartwell has confirmed to the YBF that he’s filed for divorce from former child star, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, after eight months of marriage. This comes as a surprise to a lot of us, as we just saw Keshia make her pregnancy announcement LITERALLY days ago.

Need receipts? Here are official court documents filed by Ed



Via The YBF:

We’ve learned that former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia courthouse this morning. He filed the divorce complaint under Edgerton Hartwell II and cited irreconcilable differences, “such as constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together.”

The above public record divorce registration was posted hours after we broke this story. [Additionally, we are in possession of the full multiple page complaint filed by Ed.]

The decision to split comes less than eight months after his and wife Keshia Knight Pulliam’s surprise New Year’s Eve wedding.

We’re told Keshia is not yet aware that he has filed for divorce. She also has no idea Ed simply wants out of the marriage and to remain single.

The two having a few marital issues did not come as much of a surprise to those who are VERY close to the couple. Sources tell us they noticed constant bickering going on. We’re told an all out divorce, though, was unexpected.

They have done a good job not to comment publicly on any problems.

At least one of the issues stems from Ed feeling like Keshia acts in a “spoiled” way, something he knew before he married her after four months of dating. Apparently, he has a history of acting impulsively, i.e. that surprise wedding after just a few months of dating.

They did not spend his birthday together on May 7th.

Keshia recently revealed she’s pregnant with her and Ed’s first child, and it’s a girl. She is due January 2017.

Interestingly, Ed tells via his rep, “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby.”


Such a shame. I was really rooting for them.

I’ll bet Lisa Wu and Tigger are somewhere, shaking their heads about this!

The former child star of ‘The Cosby Show’ made the official announcement on the ‘gram with a cute photo, also revealing the baby’s sex. #ItsAGirl.



Surprise!!! We have a new addition coming soon… Tune into #KandidlyKeshia this week for the details!!

Keshia Knight Pulliam (Hartwell) has that kind of cute personality where you can tell it takes a lot for her to get upset….unless you talk about her TV dad, Bill Cosby. She recently interviewed socialite/model/actress, and now feminist advocate, Amber Rose, on her podcast, Kandidly Keshia and things got a little heated when Amber tried to come for Bill with a shady comment. Keshia wasn’t having that! Listen to the cringe-worthy moment, provided by V103 Atlanta’s The Ryan Report. Press play below!
