Yesterday Ed Hartwell filed to divorce his pregnant wife Keshia Knight Pulliam - early reports say that Keshia was not taking care of her man like she promised him before they got married.
Here is the BACK STORY. MediaTakeOut.com spoke with one of Ed's friends who explained how when Keshia met Ed, he was engaged to ANOTHER WOMAN. The snitch explained, "Keshia would creep around with Ed whilst he was engaged to his fiancee," the snitch continued, "Keshia would go in the back door while Ed entered through the front door of establishments."
We're told that Keshia was able to get Ed to dump his ex, by tricking off on him and promising him a LAVISH LIFESTYLE. Another insider told MediaTakeOut.com, "Keshia gave him thousands to start a new gym. But she's not as rich as she led him to believe, so she slowly stopped giving him money."
And once Keshia stopped TRICKING OFF on her husband, he hit her with them papers. Here is how the website TheYBF is reporting it:
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. 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 7.
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 TheYBF.com via his rep, “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby.”
Good heavens, this is going to get REAL MESSY!!
