Former NFL football player Kordell Stewart, left, is suing former gossip blogger-turned-DJ Quentin Latham, aka Funky Dineva, for leaking a scandalous video of him online.
Stewart, 44, claimed his ex-wife, Porsha Williams, was behind the leaked video which was published on Latham’s gossip blog, Funkydineva.com in 2016.
In the court documents obtained by gossip webloid TMZ, Stewart accused Latham, 40, of creating a fake email to suggest he received the leaked video from another man.
The video appeared to show Stewart baring his naked buttocks in the presence of another man.
Stewart’s attorney, Antavious Weems claims Latham went to great lengths to expose his client as a gay man.
In court documents, Weems declared that, “at all times during his life, Mr. Stewart has been, and is, a heterosexual male”.
Other than hearsay, there was never any hard core evidence to support rumors that Stewart was homosexual — until Latham leaked the video on his blog.
In the past, Stewart has fiercely defended his manhood. He previously sued internet star Andrew Caldwell (aka Mr. DeliverT) and won a $3 million judgment when Caldwell failed to show up in court.
Stewart, who married Williams in 2011 after meeting her in a bar, filed for divorce in 2013, saying his marriage to Williams was “irretrievably broken.”
He has one son from a previous relationship.
In a similar case, former wrestler Hulk Hogan won a multimillion dollar lawsuit against conservative blog Gawker.com for leaking a sex video of the wrestler cavorting with his best friend’s wife. The lawsuit led to Gawker’s spectacular downfall.
