Real Housewives of Atlanta fans probably saw this one coming. Season five newcomer Porsha Williams is on her way back to single status — with husband Kordell Stewart pulling the trigger on their marriage after less than two years together. The former Pittsburgh Steelers star, 40, filed divorce papers in Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on Friday, March 22, TMZ confirms.

In the papers, the former NFL player says the union (they wed May 21, 2011) is "irretrievably broken," and that the couple is presently separated. The football star also charges that his estranged wife should not be entitled to spousal support. "[She's] an able-bodied person, earning income and is capable of supporting herself," the papers state. Suggesting an existing prenuptial agreement, Kordell's filing also states that there are no marital assets to be divided.

A new cast member (alongside instant enemy Kenya Moore) on the latest season of the Bravo smash, stay-at-home wife Porsha has slowly revealed that her romance with Kordell isn't as picture-perfect as she claimed.

Fellow castmates intervened during a girls' Las Vegas trip to ask if Kordell was too "controlling" of a husband, while the couple were filmed arguing over plans to have their first child together — with Kordell forbidding her to continue her charity work if she were to become a mom.
