Ex-NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart is suing the male viral video star who claimed they had a sexual relationship for $4.5 million, DailyMail.com can reveal.
The man in question, Andrew Caldwell, became famous for another video, in which he screamed in church: ‘I’m not gay no more’.
In October 2015, Caldwell went on a radio show and claimed he had ‘hooked up with Stewart in the past’ – while Stewart was married to Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams.
Speaking on TheShakeUp Show, Caldwell claimed he’d dated Stewart and that the former pro football player had bought him expensive gifts.
Stewart denied the allegations and in his suit stated, ‘at all times during his life, Mr. Stewart has been, and is, a heterosexual male.’
The suit, filed in Georgia, calls the allegations, ‘false and defamatory.’
While Caldwell has since apologized and retracted his statements, Stewart maintains that the claims damaged his career, image and hurt his family.
He’s suing for loss of earnings, emotional distress and impairment to his reputation.
Now, according to court documents seen exclusively by DailyMail.com, Stewart is demanding a whopping $4.5 million in damages.
He explains the allegations of ‘homosexual relations’ were made when he was married to Williams and were made in an attempt to harm his marriage.
He also claims that his then 9-year-old son, Syre, was bullied because of the rumors.
But this is not the first time Stewart has been forced to defend his sexuality. In 2013, he was moved to deny he was gay after Williams hinted that his sexuality may have been a factor in their split.
