Days after being blindsided by divorce, Keshia Knight-Pulliam breaks her silence about her troubled marriage. The expectant actress recently opened up to ET Online about her relationship with estranged husband Ed Hartwell.
“It’s hurtful,” she shared. “I knew I couldn’t be silent, because this isn’t about money. This isn’t about fame. This isn’t about social media likes or follows. This is about my character — my integrity as a woman being attacked — and that’s not OK.”
Ed Hartwell filed for divorce earlier this week after just seven months of marriage to Keshia. The star athlete cited “irreconcilable differences” as his reason for wanting the dissolution and requested Keshia’s daughter be subjected to a paternity test after birth.
“This is his baby,” Keshia told ET. “He wanted more children. He was excited once he found out that we were having a little girl. There was never a question about that. … [At] no point after we got pregnant was there an issue of the fact that we’re having a baby.”
Regardless of the challenges currently present, Keshia is committed to moving forward for the sake of her child. “There’s a baby in the middle of this,” she stressed. “Regardless, if we don’t want to be married, that’s fine, because we agree on that. But this baby is what’s important.”
Keshia Knight-Pulliam is expecting her and Ed Hartwell’s daughter to arrive in coming months. The little one is her first child.
