This is just another crazy case of he said/she said!
In an interview with Page Six, Ed Hartwell made a passionate denial against Keshia Knight Pulliam's claims of cheating and abandonment. The candid convo comes on the heels of Keshia's exclusive and emotional interview with Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.

According to Ed, he made his uncertainties about the couple's marriage quite clear to Pulliam back in February, just a MONTH after they got hitched. Apparently E.H. realized he still had feelings for an ex he dated for four years (not his ex-wife Lisa Wu), a sentiment he revealed immediately.
Following the admission, K.K.P. essentially checked out of the marriage despite her "obsession" to have a baby:
"She started going out with friends all the time and not telling me when she was coming home or sometimes not coming home at all. I can't say she's been unfaithful. I can say she's stayed out, she's not came home, she's went out-of-town … for three days, I don't know what's going on. I can say that. I can't say she was unfaithful."
Even with all the drama and confusion surrounding their nuptials, the actress allegedly kept pushing for a little one:
"She wanted a baby really fast, and what I was trying to explain to her was that — from my beliefs, from seeing other successful people — that when you first get married, especially since we didn't have a long courtship, that we should actually focus on each other and not just have a baby. That's something she really did want to do."
Since E.H. wasn't ready to have another kid yet (he already has a son with Lisa), he decided to pull the brakes on their sex life:
"What I learned about her is that if she wants something, she wants it now and she's going to go get it. That's one of the reasons we actually stopped having sex."
Dayum. If this is true, it does pose the question of paternity. At this point, the former athlete believes the baby belongs to Keshia's ex-boyfriend Big Tigger.
The poppa went on to explain how he grew suspicious after the icon announced her pregnancy:
"As time kept going past and the days went past, some things just weren't adding up. So for me it's not me saying she's a bad person. She wants what she wants, I want what I want: she wants a baby, I want to find love and happiness. But at the end of the day, I think if things don't add up, I think it's fair for me, if things don't add up, to want a test."
Wow… this is such a crazy situation! We just hope these two can stay civil for the sake of the baby — no matter who the father is.
As for Pulliam, she recently filed docs (obtained by TMZ), to secure her Cosby Show fortune in addition to her mansion in Atlanta. The beauty also wants all her earnings from before AND during the marriage.
Obviously, the filings could change once the baby is born. We'll definitely keep you guys updated as this tense breakup progresses!
