Ex-NFL Star Kordell Stewart Moves To Collect $3M Judgement On Gay Rumors

Kordell Stewart, ex-husband of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams, has made a legal move to recover all of the outstanding coin owed to him by those who spread rumors about his sexuality.

The former NFL quarterback has spent two decades batting down reports that he is gay. The chatter reached a crescendo in 2015, when Andrew “Delivert” Caldwell said he once hooked up with Stewart, and that the athlete had bought him cars, purses and other gifts.

Caldwell eventually retracted his statements, but Stewart took legal action anyway, suing Caldwell, as well as Catalyst Next LLC, the company who owned the Internet morning show which Caldwell appeared, and Jarrius Keyun Moon, the creator of a reality show that Caldwell was to appear in at the time in October of 2015.

According to Straight From the A, Stewart sued for $4.5 million in damages, claiming the comments damaged his reputation and brand, while also causing his 9-year-old son to be ridiculed and bullied.

Kordell also claimed that the comments cost him nearly a million dollars after the controversy led to the cancellation of several public appearances. Stewart sought an additional $2 million in general damages for emotional stress and professional harm, plus another $15,340 to pay a company to repair his tarnished brand.

When none of the parties bothered to answer the lawsuit, Kordell was granted a default judgment of $1.5 million in general damages and $1.5 million in punitive damages, totaling $3 million. Stewart has been trying to collect that money ever since.

On May 4, 2018, his attorneys registered the $3 million judgment in New York, hoping to recover some of the funds from Catalyst Next, LLC, the radio company involved in the suit, reports Straight From the A.

Keeven Robinson: Police Custody Death In New Orleans Ruled As Homicide

Keeven Robinson: Police Custody Death In New Orleans Ruled As Homicide

On May 10, New Orleans native Keeven Robinson was suspected of dealing narcotics. When the 22-year-old saw detectives at a gas station, he attempted to drive away, but crashed his car.

He tried to run on foot but was cornered in a backyard, according to CBS News. Allegedly, there was a struggle with cops and Robinson stopped breathing. He was taken to a hospital and died. Originally, it was said he died because of asthma issues during the struggle. Now, a corner has said Robinson died of homicide by asphyxiation.

NBC News reports, “Jefferson Parish Coroner Gerry Cvitanovich said Monday that the post-mortem examination showed Robinson’s death was ’caused by the actions of another.’ The damage to the soft tissues of his neck, he said, left him confident that the cause of death will be ‘compression asphyxia’ when the autopsy process is completed. He said it was consistent with someone choking, grabbing or leaning on Robinson’s neck.”  The four detectives who arrested involved in the incident have been read their rights and put on administrative leave.

When Sheriff Joseph Lopinto was asked if his department has a policy on chokeholds, he dodged the question by saying the officer were fighting for their lives, “From a policy standpoint, we don’t train somebody to hit someone with a brick — but if you’re fighting for your life and the brick’s there, you hit somebody with the brick.”

Robinson was unarmed. In case you are wondering, the department does not use body or dashboard cameras.

Sheryl Robinson, Keeven’s grandmother, said, “We want the young Black men to be able to walk the streets and when the police do frisk them, we want them to be able to stand and let the police do their job. They’re afraid of the police. They are killing our children. It’s time to stop, enough is enough. ”

There have been marches in New Orleans for Keeven Robinson.  See below:
