Well that didn't take too long. A day after Porsha Stewart (now Williams) went public with allegations that Kordell Stewart hit her and abused her during their marriage, Kordell is speaking out, calling Porsha a liar.
Kordell initially told Access Hollywood simply that Porsha's tales were false. As the story has spread, he was compelled to release a full statement to the media via his rep, slamming her for using him to try to stay relevant.
Kordell shared, "I married my wife because she was a Godly woman who had accepted her calling as a minister. The bright lights made Porsha lose her way. I no longer know the person she has become. I hope and pray she can turn her life around soon. I loved my wife, supported her and invested in her success."
He continued, "As a reminder, I divorced her. At no time has there been any findings against me, during or before the divorce proceedings, to indicate anything less than a loving and supportive husband."
Kordell wants to be left alone to raise his child and not have to deal with Porsha's bombshell accusations, "I'm focused on raising my son and being a single dad. That is a big enough job, without having to continue to respond to her false claims and foolishness. It seems she is willing to do anything to try and keep herself relevant. I have moved forward in my life and I hope she can move forward and stop bringing me back into her life. I was done over 14 months ago with our relationship and marriage."
Kordell would probably have a strong slander suit on his hands if she is flat out making it up. But if she can prove otherwise, he's going to look foolish for speaking out.
