Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams is coming clean about her relationship with ex-husband Kordell Stewart.

During an interview with Access Hollywood, Porsha claims Kordell physically abused her on more than one occasion. The reality star also admitted that the domestic violence scene in her music video for Flatline was loosely based on her real life.

“The video [“Flatline”] does touch on domestic violence and some abuse I encountered in my marriage,” Porsha said. “It’s not exact to what I went through, because, honestly, what I went through was a little bit worse in some instances.”

When she was asked by the host, “What happened in the marriage? Did he hit you?”

Porsha responded, “Abuse. Physical abuse.  Yeah. There were several different occasions that this happened. When you’re in an abusive situation, it kind of just builds, and it starts to get worse and worse. And people ask me, ‘why didn’t you tell anybody or call the police?’ or what have you. I just thought that I could make it better. I honestly thought after each situation that I would change this or I would change that, and therefore the outcome wouldn’t be the same. It doesn’t work like that. I’m still realizing now that a lot of what happened, it wasn’t my fault.”

Porsha also revealed that Kordell admitted to the abuse during the couple’s divorce deposition.

When we were going through the divorce process, we had to sit in deposition hearing, and he didn’t deny it. A lot of women who are in situations like I was in, I wanted to make it better. I was praying every day. I was cooking. I was smiling. The outside
appearance was as if nothing was happening. Even though you’re being abused, you still love that person, you’re just trying to love them through it. And you’re trying to pray them through it and you’re not realizing that you can’t change a person, they have to change

I never went to the hospital. I never reported anything. There were [visible injuries], but I’ll tell you the ones that have stuck with me the most is the mental abuse. I had so much pride in being a wife and being a mother and what that meant to me was big. So
for me to be told I was lazy, and that I was stupid and that I wasn’t good enough and that nothing I could do was right, that was really, really hard for me…When someone is constantly ridiculing you, I’m always trying to live up to what that person thinks of me, it’s hard.

Porsha’s latest revelations contradict what she said during season 5 of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Porsha hid the abuse and tried to paint a picture perfect marriage to Kordell.
