Keshia Knight Pulliam finalizes divorce with Ed Hartwell, gets primary custody

Keshia Knight Pulliam's divorce with Ed Hartwell has been finalized and she gets primary custody of their one-year-old daughter Ella Grace, according to TMZ.  

Hartwell - a former NFL player who was married to ex-"Real Housewives of Atlanta" castmate Lisa Wu - married Pulliam in 2016 but the union only lasted a few months. The split was acrimonious and the two sides hurled all sorts of accusations against the other in court in 2016 into 2017.

For instance, she questioned his ability to take care of their daughter based on his use of prescription drugs.  He questioned the paternity of the girl but it was ultimately deemed his. He then tried to seek joint custody but lost that battle.

Hartwell acknowledged adultery and is now living with Tonya Carroll, who's pregnant with his child. He is supposed to pay about $3,000 a month in child support to Knight Pulliam, TMZ said.
