Last week, Keshia Knight Pulliam announced on Instagram that she’s knocked up with a baby girl by posing with a pink cupcake (because I guess Clearblue ran out of sponsored celebrity pregnancy announcement packs). I’m sure at the time she would have never thought that only a week later she’d be dealing with both morning sickness and divorce papers, but here we are.
People magazine says that Rudy Huxtable’s husband of six months Ed Hartwell, who’s a former NFL player and the ex of one-time Real Housewife of Atlanta Lisa Wu, has filed for divorce. Rudy and Ed dated for four months last year before getting engaged on New Year’s Eve, which was followed by a surprise wedding in their living room sometime in January 2016. Ed lists “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for why he wants Keshia to join Lisa Wu in the Ex-Wives of Ed Hartwell Club.
Filing for divorce after only six months of marriage is messy enough. Serving your wife divorce papers while she’s knocked up with your kid takes it to an even-messier level. But that’s not where the craziness ends. TMZ says Ed has also demanded that Keshia prove who the daddy is. Ed’s rep told The YBF that all he wants right now is a paternity test for the baby. That’s right, we’ve entered Maury territory.
So far, neither Keshia nor Ed have said anything about this on social media. But TMZ does know that Keshia isn’t feeling this divorce. According to the documents filed by Ed, Keshia is contesting the divorce. She has 30 days to file a response, which may just include walking into a courtroom with her giant knocked-up baby bump on display saying “This. This is why I don’t want to deal with a divorce right now.”
