TheYBF.com has exclusively learned that Ed Hartwell has filed for divorce from Keshia Knight Pulliam after just eight months of marriage. Details, plus what Ed has to say, inside....
We can't say we saw this one coming.
We've learned that former NFL linebacker Ed Hartwell filed divorce papers in a Fulton County, Georgia courthouse this morning. He filed the divorce complaint under Edgerton Hartwell II and cited irreconcilable differences, "such as constant disagreements on life changing decisions that couples typically make together."

[UPDATE-- The above public record divorce registration was posted hours after we broke this story. Additionally, we are in possession of the full multiple page complaint filed by Ed.]
The decision to split comes less than eight months after his and wife Keshia Knight Pulliam's surprise New Year's Eve wedding.
We're told Keshia is not yet aware that he has filed for divorce. She also has no idea Ed simply wants out of the marriage and to remain single.
The two having a few marital issues did not come as much of a surprise to those who are VERY close to the couple. Sources tell us they noticed constant bickering going on. We're told an all out divorce, though, was unexpected.
They have done a good job not to comment publicly on any problems.
At least one of the issues stems from Ed feeling like Keshia acts in a "spoiled" way, something he knew before he married her after four months of dating. Apparently, he has a history of acting impulsively, i.e. that surprise wedding after just a few months of dating.
They did not spend his birthday together on May 7th.
Keshia recently revealed she's pregnant with her and Ed's first child, and it's a girl. She is due January 2017.
Interestingly, Ed tells TheYBF.com via his rep, “Right now, the only thing I want is a paternity test for the baby.”
Wow. We don't see this ending well, especially for Keisha who will likely be embarrassed since she doesn't usually air her dirty laundry publicly.
Keshia & Ed met while hitting the party circuit in Atlanta, and soon exchanged numbers during one event. The rest was history.
