It seems that Kordell Stewart’s official retirement from the NFL hasn’t been a boon for his love life.

TMZ is reporting that Stewart filed for divorce from wife Porsha Stewart in Atlanta on March 22. Porsha is a cast member of the reality TV show The Real Housewives of Atlanta. The couple was married in May of 2011.

The divorce papers reportedly state that the marriage is “irretrievably broken” and that the couple is currently separated. Kordell is also claiming no need for spousal support and that there are no marital assets to be divided between them.

Neither Kordell or Porsha has acknowledged the divorce directly via their social media accounts, though Porsha did post this strange-in-hindsight Tweet back on March 24:

According to the TMZ report, the issue of children was hot one for the couple, as depicted on-screen in episodes of Real Housewives. Kordell has one son, Syre, with an ex-girlfriend.

Kordell Stewart played quarterback for NFL teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, and Baltimore Ravens during his decade-long career. During his 2001 season with the Steelers he led the team to the AFC Championship Game. He was named AFC Offensive Player of the Year and selected for the Pro Bowl for the accomplishment.

    I am so sorry for Porsha who naively got ensnared w/Mr. Down-low –I mean kordel. He is evil using his fortune and NFL fame to control Porsha and keep her where he wants her to be with no thought about her needs as a human being. Showing that ifcshe doesnt tow the line he wont just hurt her he’ll devistate her. There is a name for a man like him its called “sociopath ” and she’s blesses to be free of him. You can’t put pearls on a pig but you might be able to put some on kordel (i hear he likes pearls and blow jobs from men). It wouldn’t surprise me if he left her to hook up w/Walter that other gad-about on the show.

    I know reality shows can paint the picture they want to show, but he did seem too controlling and maybe just a little too old for Porsha. She’s a beautiful young lady who shouldn’t have any trouble finding a new man who doesn’t mind his wife having a family and a career. Sounds like Deon Sanders! What’s with these athletes who can stand to share the spotlight and want you to give up your entirel life before you met them to just sit at home and raise babies. Some women would love that, but it ain’t for everybody.
