Reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
NFL veteran turned analyst Kordell Stewart, the former husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast memberPorsha Williams, has sued reality show cast member Andrew Caldwell, who made statements – later retracted – indicating they’d had a relationship.
The suit, filed in DeKalb County Superior Court, also names “The Gospel Truth” creator and producer Jarrius Keyun Moon and Catalyst Next LLC, which controls the Internet morning show “The ShakeUP,” where Caldwell made statements claiming he and Stewart had a relationship.
“At all times during his life, Mr. Stewart has been, and is, a heterosexual male,” the suit states. It claims that Caldwell, a cast member of the upcoming show “The Gospel Truth,” colluded with Moon to concoct a compelling fable “to generate interest for ‘The Gospel Truth.’”
“The false and defamatory rumors that Mr. Caldwell and Defendant Moon agreed to publish are centered around Mr. Stewart having an extra-marital, sexual relationship with Mr. Caldwell,” it states.
Caldwell said he dated NFL football players while on The ShakeUP on Oct. 1, and name checked Stewart. However, he would later retract the statement while Stewart immediately denied his claims.
According to the lawsuit, Stewart is seeking damages for “loss of earnings, emotional distress and impairment to his reputation.”
We’re going to go out on the limb and say that Caldwell doesn’t have much money to pay up if he’s pulling stunts like this. No shots.
