Following a messy divorce from The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Stewart, former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart stopped by Tom Joyner Morning Show to finally address rumors that he’d moved on with fellow reality star Towanda Braxton.
“Towanda Braxton is a very nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and … no, we’re not dating,” Kordell said.
As Radar previously reported, the dating rumors swirled after he was spotted with the Braxton Family Values star at the Atlanta premiere of Grudge Match in December.
The radio DJs pushed and prodded further, asking Kordell if they’d at least gone on a date together.
“As you see on the blogs, we were at an event,” the former Pittsburgh Steeler said. “We took a picture together, and it just shot off from there. [Towanda] is a nice lady. I got the opportunity to meet her.
“She’s cool people, but I got a lot going on over here: My relationship is parenthood.”
Kordell went on to explain that his focus is on his son Syre, with ex-girlfriend Tania Richardson.
“All kind of rumors have been out there for a long, long time. I’ve cleared up one but my commitment, and my relationship is truly with parenthood and raising my son. I’ve gone through a relationship and we’ve seen that relationship spiral downhill.
“To invest in a relationship at this time, I don’t think it would be helpful for my son,” the dedicated dad said.
