Retired NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart has responded ex-wife Porsha Stewart’s allegations that he is gay… by making offensive comments about gay people.
“I’m not on the down low,” Kordell said in a radio interview yesterday. “I’m a 100 percent man. I don’t do no homophobic. I don’t do no none of that. There is nothing about no dude I see.”
Then he added, almost as an afterthought: “All due respect.”
Evidently, gay men are not “100 percent” men in Kordell’s eyes.
And we’re not entirely sure what he means by “I don’t do no homophobic.”
To recap: During last Sunday’s season premiere of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha claimed she was completely blindsided by Kordell when he filed for divorce back in March. He didn’t give her any warning ahead of time (in fact, she learned about it on Twitter), nor did he offer any explanation as to why he was leaving her.
This led Porsha to question if the gossip were true: Was Kordell gay?
Rumors that he hooks up with men on the sly have plagued the NFLer for years, long before his marriage to Porsha, including one that he been arrested after he was caught hooking up with a transvestite in a park in Pittsburgh.
According to Kordell, the reason he filed for divorce from Porsha had nothing to do with this, and was instead because she would stay out until 3 and 4 o’clock in the morning. He also denied blindsiding her with the divorce filing, claiming she asked him for a divorce because she couldn’t afford to file for one herself.
“When your wife look you in your face and tell you to file for divorce and the only reason she’s not filing is because she don’t have the money and she don’t have nothing to lose…are you kidding me?” he said.
At this point, we’re not sure who to believe. Honestly, we’re still trying to wrap our heads around the whole “100 percent man” comment.
