"Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams -- who now goes by her maiden name -- has been largely been presented as the victim in her failed marriage to former football player Kordell Stewart. But following the pair's divorce proceedings, talk continues that Porsha may have had ulterior motives with her marriage to Stewart.
Radar Online claims its sources have revealed that the "RHOA" fixture “used” her husband during their marriage.
“When [Kordell] met Porsha, she claimed to have all these jobs and opportunities going on, but she really didn’t,” a source told Radar. “She didn’t try to be independent from him and just wanted to be Kordell’s wife – and now she’s nobody.”
According to Porsha, her two-and-a-half year marriage with Stewart was often rocky. She has hinted at experiencing instances of domestic abuse as well as often implied, in interviews and on the TV show, that he may be gay. Stewart has continued to knock these rumors, claiming Williams' attacks on him are her attempt to avoid being honest about what truly made their marriage fall apart.
Radar's source added that William’s used her role as Stewart’s wife to make money and grow professionally.
“She used him and took advantage of the situation in hopes that it would get her to the next level financially and professionally,” the source continues. “Honestly, if she hadn’t been married to Kordell, she would have never landed the 'Housewives' gig because she had nothing else going for herself outside of him.”
The pair’s divorce was finalized in December, with Williams being able to keep only her engagement ring and personal items. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, the couple had a prenup. Williams didn’t get alimony, a house, health insurance, NFL retirement money or a cash out from Stewart.
The 31-year-old said she first found out that Stewart filed for divorce on Twitter. But Stewart denies that claim.
