Kordell Stewart Sues Internet Star For $4.5M For Claiming They Had a Gay Relationship
Former Pittsburgh Steelers QB Kordell Stewart is finally suing viral video star Andrew Caldwell for comments he made during a 2015 interview—during which he claimed both of them were in a sexual relationship while Stewart was married to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams.
This is the guy in the now infamous video:
“Stewart denied the allegations and in his suit stated, ‘at all times during his life, Mr. Stewart has been, and is, a heterosexual male.’
The suit, filed in Georgia, calls the allegations, ‘false and defamatory.’
While Caldwell has since apologized and retracted his statements, Stewart maintains that the claims damaged his career, image and hurt his family.
He’s suing for loss of earnings, emotional distress and impairment to his reputation.
Now, according to court documents seen exclusively by DailyMail.com, Stewart is demanding a whopping $4.5 million in damages.
He explains the allegations of ‘homosexual relations’ were made when he was married to Williams and were made in an attempt to harm his marriage.
He also claims that his then 9-year-old son, Syre, was bullied because of the rumors.”
Kordell may never see that cash if awarded, because according to Caldwell’s family members, he receives a $600 monthly disability check, owns numerous credit cards, never had a job, was in special ed classes in school, and he is one of four bipolar siblings (seven siblings total) along with his mother.
