She became the stepmother to his son Syre from his previous relationship with Tania Richardson.

On March 26th, 2013, Kordell Stewart filed for divorce from Porsha, claiming that the marriage had been irretrievably broken. Kordell also claims he does not need to pay Porsha any spousal support and that his assets will not be divided due to the short length of their marriage and the fact that there is a prenuptial agreement in place.
