Exclusive: Kordell Stewart Planning Late May Wedding To Civil Rights Leader’s Granddaughter

- By Bossip Staff

Former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Kordell Stewart may have been arrested yesterday, but it hasn’t taken away from the festive mood he’s been in lately.

On May 21, Stewart is set to marry 29-year-old Porsha Williams, the first granddaughter of Civil Rights activist and philanthropist Hosea Williams, BOSSIP has learned exclusively. The wedding will take place at the Hotel St. Regis in Atlanta’s posh Buckhead neighborhood.

Stewart’s rep says the wedding is being crafted as the perfect fairytale wedding and will be a full on family affair: the wedding party consists of 14 bridesmaids and groomsmen; Porsha’s brother Hosea Williams III will walk her down the aisle on behalf of their late father; and Kordell’s son Syre will serve as their ring bearer.

As for his arrest, Stewart’s rep says the details were slightly exaggerated. During a routine traffic stop, Stewart found out that his license was suspended due to an outdated speeding ticket. He was taken into custody and was released less than two hours later, not four. He says the incident has taught him to pay closer attention to such matters.

Stewart is scheduled to appear in a Fulton County, GA courtroom on July 12. In the meantime, he is focusing on starting the next chapter of his life with Porsha.

As far as his career is concerned, it now hinges on two things: the NFL lockout ending before the start of the 2011-2012 season; and ESPN deciding if they will take any action against Stewart for his arrest.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

    Ok, I saw a related story in the AJC about how her mother, the one that heads up the Hosea Williams Feed The Hungry organization sent out an email soliciting donations to help with the cost of her daughter’s wedding. It made the news because it was “accidentally” sent to the email addresses of regular donors of the organization. Her mother later said that was a mistake and it was intended for the email only to be sent to a select group that is personal friends or family of the couple. (SIDE EYE!) Either way, she was asking for help paying for it, so this is one more frontin’ couple thats having a Cinderella wedding that can’t pay for it. Obviously, the NFL lockout has already hit this dude hard.

    actually just me your completely wrong. you shouldnt speak on things that your mis informed on. Porsha is not the daughter of (her aunt) that ACCIDENTALLY sent the email. the email was sent about her aunts daughter. porsha and Kordell are paying for their own wedding. šŸ™‚

      you are correct, it is a DIFFERENT couple in the family, not this one.

    LOL, I went over the story from last week and noticed the names were all wrong….. MY BAD!

    Carry on…

  • sportstalk23

    14 bridesmaids and groomsmen really in 2011 its totally ok to not have every single relative or friend you have in the wedding, and now that the poster stated these are soliciting donors of their charity to pay for some wedding, that gets not only major side eye but deserves a look from the feds,just sayin. Pay for your own wedding or is Kordell in that 50% of athletes that are broke after 5 years, in any event the focus should be the marriage and not just the wedding, so heres hoping it works out for them as a husband and wife

    Yes, Kordell Stewart was caught having “sexual relations” with a man in his car in the late 90’s! This was while he was the QB for the Steelers. I know a guy who was on the team with him at the time and it was a big deal! Kordell kept a low profile after that…now he’s resurfaced as a commentator and is getting married!!! I guess he thinks people have a short memory. SMH…DL brothers in the ATL
