Ed Hartwell Gives His Side of Story in Keshia Knight Pulliam Divorce

Ed Hartwell speaks
Ed Hartwell breaks his silence in the midst of his divorce drama with Keshia Knight Pulliam.

Tabloid talk has surrounded the ex-couple ever since news of their sudden split broke, just a week after Pulliam announced her pregnancy. The 37-year-old actress did an exclusive sit-down with Entertainment Tonight‘s Nichelle Turner, giving her side of the story and saying that she no longer wishes to be married to him either and that she’s “taking it day by day, and my focus right now is loving myself the best I can. Now, [I’m] loving myself amazingly well, because that’s loving my baby.”

Now, Ed is sharing his side of the story with Page Six, saying that Keshia was pressuring him to have a baby, which just wasn’t what he wanted in the very beginning of their marriage. “She wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn’t have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby. That’s something she really did want to do,” Hartwell told the site.

During his interview, he also revealed that he told his ex that they probably jumped the gun getting married after dating for only 4 months. “I said, ‘I think we probably messed up. I think we moved too fast,’” he told the site, “‘Our lives and wants are headed two different directions.’”

As far as the cheating allegations plaguing both sides, Ed said that he can’t definitively say that Keshia cheated, but he has his doubts for various reasons. “I can’t say she’s been unfaithful. I can say she’s stayed out, she’s not came home, she’s went out-of-town … for three days, I don’t know what’s going on. I can say that,” he said. “I can’t say she was unfaithful. I can say she wanted to get in vitro, I can say she wanted to do some things to make sure she got pregnant. I just want to make sure it is mine.”
