Doth Kordell Stewart protest too much? The NFL player finally responded to speculation started by his estranged wife, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart, that he might be gay. The pro baller may have gone a little overboard with his denials.
“No! I promise you on my life and everything that I'm a part of including my son, and on my father, who's no longer here, that that has never happened, nor will anything ever come up, ever, come up with no dude," Stewart told Atlanta radio's Ryan Cameron Morning Show.
The 41-year-old also revealed what prompted him to file for divorce from the reality star. "When my wife tells me she does what she wanna do because she’s out doing what she’s doing for whatever reason she’s choosing to do it, when I allowed Bravo in the house. I went against the grain of what I represent," he explained. "I'm private. I had to compromise everything about my manhood from the standpoint of, 'OK, I'm going to let my wife do what she do....and that's it.’”
Of Porsha's behavior on the show and the rumors she started after he filed for divorce, he says, “When you come out your mouth and show that type of disrespect, you have no idea how much that burnt me up inside."
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star claimed she was blindsided by divorce papers from her husband, and that he subsequently changed the locks on their home without any warning. Kordell made allegations that Porsha had been neglecting her duties as a stepmother to his son.
The couple were married less than two years when Kordell filed for divorce.
