Keshia Knight Pulliam is finally officially divorced from ex-husband Edgerton (Ed) Hartwell II, former The Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

TMZ reports that Keisha is not only currently a free woman, but she received the most important asset in her battle with Ed, which is custody of their one-year-old daughter.

Although Keshia won full custody of baby Ella Grace, Ed is still granted visitation rights to see their child according to Madame Noire although he was originally vying for joint custody.

Apparently, the divorce proceedings disclosed that Ed is currently taking multiple medications to assist him in managing his physical and mental ailments. However, this type of issue is concerning to the court in regards to their child. The judge believed his decision-making skills would be negatively impacted in regards to their child.

Ed has reportedly been ordered to pay Keshia $3,007 every month in child support. BET reports that Hartwell has only been to approximately 20 of his 80 visits to see baby Ella and has allegedly been finding ways to avoid paying child support. 

Ed filed for divorce from Keshia back in 2016 after being married for only seven months while she was carrying their child. Keshia claimed the divorce came to her as a complete shock.

The divorce apparently stems from Ed dating another woman, Tonya Carroll, who he remains in a relationship to this day. She is currently pregnant with his child.
