During their convo, Kordell explained the origin of the gay rumors that have plagued him for over 18 years.
The former NFL star said back in 1998, he received a call from a doctor who informed him people were saying he was arrested in a park for lewd acts with a transvestite.
Kordell told Steve, “When that happened, I was like, ‘Man.’ It drew me closer to the Word to the point where it made me understand what this really, really was all about — it was hate. And that’s why to this day I wanted to wait until I had the opportunity to speak to you about this.”
You may recall, Kordell blindsided Porsha with the divorce and reportedly locked her out of their home.
Here’s what he told Steve Harvey:
I loved my ex-wife. That’s old and that’s over with Steve. You know I have a 13-year-old kid to raise.
When it comes to the institution of marriage, I think it is the highest levels of the Super Bowl of a relationship. And you have that someone that you say, ‘You know what, I want to be with you for the rest of my life. Your breath stinks and all. I want to just be with you forever.’ And that breath that I was smelling was the one that I wanted to be with for the rest of my life. But it got to the point where it got a little too stank.
