Ed Hartwell admits he's the father of Keshia Knight Pulliam's newborn daughter—after a forced paternity test last year—but he still won't pay child support. Things continue to get complicated between the ex-football player and former child star. According to TMZ, Hartwell has filed legal documents in his divorce from Knight Pulliam in which he claims he won't cop to child support.
Hartwell doesn't believe his ex's request for emergency financial support because they are both well off. He also adds that he has taken on expenses for creating a nursery at his home, which she isn't taking into account. He wants the court to figure out an amount of child support before he foots the bill.
Hartwell and Knight Pulliam have had a contentious relationship from the start. Last year, Hartwell served Knight Pulliam with "surprise" divorce papers after a fairly short marriage while she was pregnant. And earlier this year, it was revealed that she never even told him about the birth of their child. The former athlete found out about it on social media.
