Keshia Knight-Pulliam Says She’s Ready To Move On
This week Keshia Knight-Pulliam and Ed Hartwell have been taking turns talking to the media about their bombshell divorce, with Hartwell painting Knight-Pulliam as a spoiled but independent woman desperate to be pregnant, and Pulliam revealing Hartwell was unfaithful and dishonest about the circumstances of their divorce.
In the second part of her exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, Keshia mourns the loss of her relationship with Ed’s 9-year-old son:
“I really, really love him,” she tearfully explains. “He was so excited. Every night he would say, ‘I love you, Keesh Keesh’ — that’s his name for me. And then he’d say to the baby, ‘I love you.'”
“I hate that he doesn’t have that experience anymore,” she continues. “He deserves to be a big brother.”
Keshia also says one day Ed will have to explain his behavior to their daughter:
“I’m not about dragging people through the mud in the media because, again, one day she will read this,” Pulliam adds. “And even with the paternity test, one day he will have to answer to her, and explain to her… and if he didn’t say these things, that’s why I chose to do this interview. Say that it’s not true.”
Keshia also said she was sharing her stories in hopes of helping someone else who might be experiencing the same thing:
“By me sharing this story, [if I] can help inspire someone else, or help give them the strength to say, ‘You know what? I deserve better and good riddance, I’m gunna keep moving,'” she says, “I hope that this can do that, because it’s bigger than me. It’s not about me. Many women have been here. Just because this is my today, it doesn’t determine my tomorrow.”
“I’m not going to allow anyone to change how I love, because there are many blessings,” she continues. “Despite where we are now, the biggest blessing is right here with me. I always say, ‘no regrets.’ You learn lessons. I’ve learned a very big lesson, and I’ll take that with me. Forgiveness isn’t for them — it’s for you. Hatred or ill will, you know, it only harms you. So, I absolutely wish him the best. I absolutely hope that he finds whatever it is he’s looking for and needs to be happy, because the happier he is and the more fulfilled he is, the better dad he can be to our girl.”
Sounds like she’s staying positive. We definitely wish her the best.
