Porsha Stewart Says Kordell Was Physically Abusive During Their Marriage
RHOA cast member Porsha Stweart has been making headlines for her knockdown, drag out brawl with fellow cast mate Kenya Moore on their most recent reunion show, but during a recent visit to Access Hollywood Porsha dished details on someone else she says she used to physically fight with not too long ago: her ex-husband Kordell.
Check out what she had to say below.
On what was going on in the marriage to Kordell:
Abuse. Physical and mental.
On whether or not he actually hit her:
Yes. There were several different occasions that this happened.
Porsha then went on to detail exactly how bad things got with regard to the alleged abuse. Hit the flip to hear the rest…
On how the frequent the physical abuse was:
When you’re in an abusive situation, it just kind of builds, and it starts to get worse and worse.
And people ask me, why didn’t you tell anybody or call the police or what have you? I just thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation that I would change this or I would change that, and therefore the outcome wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t work like that.”
On how she feels now about being abused:
I’m still realizing now that a lot of what happened, it wasn’t my fault.
A lot of women who are in situations like I was in, I wanted to make it better. I was praying every day. I was cooking. I was smiling. The outside appearance was as if nothing was happening.
Even though you’re being abused, you still love that person, you’re just trying to love them through it. And you’re trying to pray them through it and you’re not realizing that you can’t change a person, they have to change themselves.
Kordell has denied abusing Porsha at any point during their relationship but….who do you believe?
