More Drama for Slash: Hawks Usher Accuses Kordell Stewart of Coming on to Him
I'm normally not in the habit of reporting rumors, but apparently this rumor has some legs to it.
According to a gossip website, former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback/running back/wide receiver Kordell Stewart has been accused of coming on to an usher at an Atlanta Hawks game.
The usher, who wants to remain anonymous (which should tell you something), said Kordell asked him what was up and asked for his phone number so they could hook up sometime when he is not at work.
Way before this news came out, there have been rumors floating around for years that Kordell Stewart might be gay, but I find it interesting that now he's going through a divorce and the way he went about informing his wife, this sort of thing would all of a sudden come out.
According to former teammate Plaxico Burress, who did an interview with a Pittsburgh radio station a while back, Stewart's sexuality has plagued him his whole career.
“It had to be tough on him personally. I didn’t call him gay or anything like that ... I think that’s one of the reasons why he really couldn’t become the player that he wanted to be ... It has to play on you mentally a little bit.”
So far, Stewart has yet to comment on his divorce or this latest rumor, and why should he? Unless this accuser has pics of the two of them together or more people 'come out' -- so to speak -- he should keep his mouth shut.
He wouldn't win in the court of opinion right now, anyway, even if came out with a picture of himself surrounded in bed with every female in Atlanta.
Meanwhile, it seems his future ex-wife doesn't plan to go down quietly -- so to speak -- which means she might be smarter then we all giving her credit for being.
