Keshia Knight Pulliam, known for her role as a childactress on the Cosby Show, who was accused by her estranged husband of cheating, broke down yesterday while discussing her surprise divorce.
Her husband Ed Hartwell, a former pro football player, has filed for divorce just over 6 months into their marriage and even demanded a paternity test on the pregnancy she’s carrying.
Keshia addressed the issue yesterday, crying and insisting she didn’t sleep with another man.37yrs old Keshia, and 38yrs old Hartwell got married 4 months after they met and she announced via social media on July 17th that she was pregnant. Surprisingly, days after her announcement, Hartwell filed for divorce to end their marriage while also seeking a paternity test
.Keshia, in an emotional interview with Entertainment Tonight at her home in Atlanta, Georgia said the situation was ‘hurtful’.Her words: ‘I knew I couldn’t be silent, because thisisn’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.’Keshia insisted she never cheated on her husband while they were married instead she alleged that Hartwell was the one who had been unfaithful.
She said when she found out about his cheating, she wanted to divorce him.[image]She continued: ‘Like, I had divorce papers ready.
I presented it to him. …Once I was pregnant I did decide to give him that one last chance,’ she said.
‘The part that hurt me the most when he filed for divorce was that he had asked me to give him another chance, and I was willing to do that and forgive him, for our family,’ she added.Keshia said she has ‘no desire’ to reconcile with him again and will instead concentrate on their baby.She said:
‘There’s a baby in the middle of this! And regardless, if we don’t want to be married, that’s fine, because we agree on that. But this baby is what’s important, and I feel like that’s being lost.
“I have to move forward. I have to do what I need todo to release the hurt, to release this, and to be happy for me and my baby girl, because the stress isn’t good. The stress isn’t healthy. And my only priority is her.
”The actress insisted: ‘I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t cheat on my husband. I didn’t do it.
It’s really that simple.”– both of them are hiding something, each will onlysay the part that favors him/her but the marriage isstill alive and could be rescued with sincerity.
