Ed Hartwell and actress Keshia Knight Pulliam got married at the top of the year on New Year’s Day and looked to be a strong romance in the making. However, the former NFL linebacker has filed for divorce Monday and it appears he’s also questioning the paternity of the little girl his soon-to-be ex-wife is carrying.

The YBF exclusively reports:

We’ve learned that former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia courthouse this morning. He filed the divorce complaint under Edgerton Hartwell II and cited irreconcilable differences, “such as constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together.”

The decision to split comes less than eight months after his and wife Keshia Knight Pulliam’s surprise New Year’s Eve wedding.

We’re told Keshia is not yet aware that he has filed for divorce. She also has no idea Ed simply wants out of the marriage and to remain single.

The two having a few marital issues did not come as much of a surprise to those who are VERY close to the couple. Sources tell us they noticed constant bickering going on. We’re told an all out divorce, though, was unexpected.

YBF adds that Hartwell grew tired of Pulliam’s “spoiled” ways and the publication speculates that the marriage was an impulsive move by the pair as they dated just four months before sealing the deal. Via a rep, YBF learned that Hartwell is also seeking a paternity test.


The couple has yet to publicly address the split.
