Keshia Knight Pulliam is bravely speaking out about husband Ed Hartwell dropping divorce papers on the actress while she’s pregnant with their first child. She claims he was the one who cheated on her and that their baby is one hundred percent his. Keep reading for more on her bombshell new interview.
Former Cosby Show star Keshia Knight Pulliam, 37 told Entertainment Tonight in an exclusive interview July 27, that husband of eight months Ed Hartwell, 38, left their Atlanta house July 25 like it was any other normal day. “Then he texts me and says ‘hey can I talk to you for a moment.’ He said ‘this isn’t working, I filed for divorce this morning, and I’m coming to get my stuff’.” Holy cow, that is COLD!!
Keshia revealed that SHE was once the one ready to pull the plug on their marriage early on after she had concerns about his possible infidelities, but he begged her to stay with him. “So early in my marriage when I was faced with this, (cheating allegations) I was ready to leave. I had divorce papers ready. I presented them to him. He said ‘please, I want my family.’ He said all the right things. And once I was pregnant I decided to give him that last chance.”
Speaking of the pregnancy and his demand for a paternity test from the star, she claimed, “I have never cheated on him during my marriage, that’s not who I am. That’s not an issue. There’s no problem. I have never been unfaithful to my husband. This is his daughter. You know it’s one thing when you choose to be in the spotlight. It’s another thing when you have a baby,” she said through tears, which was absolutely devastating. “It’s my baby, she doesn’t deserve it.”
As for whether or not she still loves Ed, Keshia said, “I love who he pretended to be. I have no desire to continue to be married to him. That’s why I’m doing this one interview and I’m dying.” She made it clear how much it pained her to do discuss her personal problems, and that “I’m not going to continue to revisit, regurgitate…but I won’t allow people to tell blatant lies about me.” Keshia’s so brave to discuss her heartbreak, as it’s still so fresh.
