Kordell Stewart admits that he changed the locks on the mansion he shared with Porsha Stewart to protect his family.
On Monday, it was reported that Porsha claimed Kordell had effectively kicked her out of their house by suddenly changing the locks behind her back. In new, recently filed court documents, Kordell doesn’t deny that he did get a new set of locks, but he claims that he only did so after Porsha “abandoned the marital home on April 2nd, 2013.”
Supposedly, Porsha had gotten into the habit of coming and going from the house without any explanation to him. When he got fed up with the behavior, Kordell decided to change the locks, but he argues in court documents that Porsha would have to known he was going to do it because he made an annoucement to everyone in his inner circle.
“Hey reaching out not knowing who may or may not have keys to the house at this point,” Kordell claims he stated in a mass text message, “I was concerned for our safety so I changed the locks on the house. If and when you need to get in give me a heads up so you can get in”
It’s not clear what would have caused Kordell to become scared enough to change the locks. But this message could also disprove Porsha’s claims that he’s refusing to let her into the house or give her a key to mansion so that she can gain access on her own.
For now, Porsha is supposedly staying with her mother until Kordell gives her enough money. However, the former NFL pro thinks she has more than enough cash of her own to get a suitable place.
“She is a celebrity, and has the income through appearances, endorsements, Bravo and other entities,” Kordell stated in court documents. “[Porsha] should be capable of supporting herself but may not be able to as a result of her own financial negligence.”
