Pregnant Keshia Knight Pulliam’s Husband Files for Divorce and Demands Paternity Test
Keshia Knight Pulliam’s husband of seven months has filed for divorce one week after she announced she was pregnant. Documents obtained by The Young Black & Fabulous blog show that Ed Hartwell, 38, a former American football star, filed for divorce in a courthouse in Fulton County, Georgia, on Monday citing irreconcilable differences.
The filing, under the sportsman’s full name of Edgerton Hartwell II, reportedly gave “constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together,” as a reason for the split. Hartwell’s attempt to file for divorce comes just seven months after the couple married on New Year’s Day at her house after a four month romance. The Cosby Show star announced she was pregnant with a baby girl, due in January next year, just over a week ago. According to editors at the blog, Hartwell has doubts over the paternity of the baby, telling them via a representative, “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby.” Announcing her pregnancy last week, the actress posted an image on Instagram of herself holding up a cupcake decorated with a depiction of a baby in a pink bonnet which she captioned, “Surprise!!! We have a new addition coming soon…”
Pulliam, 37, has 30 days to file a response to the divorce request.
