Kordell Stewart ain’t about the Down Low and a judge agrees! Last year a popular YouTube celebrity named Andrew Caldwell claimed he and the former Real Housewives Of Atlanta househusband had a secret gay relationship, Kordell denied the allegations, sued for slander, and has won millions in damages.
Andrew was unable to prove any such relationship with Kordell, but his allegations gained traction because Kordell has been shadowed by gay rumors since his days in the NFL. The matter wasn’t helped when his ex-wife Porsha Williams echoed such insinuations. However, we know how Porsha likes to flub the truth about what happens in people’s bedrooms – including her own. Anyway!

Andrew Caldwell, who made the accusations through his social media channels and the media, recanted his story once Kordell took his claim to the courts demanding proof. Then Caldwell admitted to lying for attention and publicly apologized. He attempted to have the suit dismissed, then claimed he would fight it, but apparently not – he failed to show up in court and the judge issued a default judgement to Kordell.

According to RollingOut, Mr. Caldwell now owes Kordell $4.5 million in punitive damages, plus an additional $2 million for emotionally distress and professional harm generated by the untrue statements. Gee – think of all the nightclubs and bars he could invest in with Peter Thomas!
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Kordell will see the full chunk of change. Sources reveal the judge agreed to alter the amount so Caldwell is only expected to pay $3 million total – $1.5M for emotional and professional damages, and an additional $1.5M for punitive damages.
Errrr… why do I have a feeling the viral video star is never going to turn over that money? However, hopefully this will be a lesson to Kordell’s stanky-mouthed ex-wife that what you say can cost you! Especially when you say it on camera…
