Keshia Knight-Pulliam and her actor boyfriend Brad James are now Instagram-official following their first public appearance at the grand gala of Tyler Perry's Studios.


Keshia Knight-Pulliam is ready to move on from her marriage with ex-NFL star Ed Hartwell that ended in heartbreak for the actress. Now, she's giving love a chance once again, this time with actor Brad James.

The Couple's First Appearance

The former child star is dating "For Better or Worse" actor Brad James, hoping that this time, their love will last. In fact, the new couple decided to make things Instagram-official, confirming the rumors about their relationship that have been swirling.

They made their debut appearance at the grand opening gala of Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta, where they cozied up on one of the stages named after Oprah Winfrey.

Making Things Instagram-Official

Pulliam proudly shared a photo of her and James holding on to one another while on the platform of the Oprah Winfrey Soundstage. On her caption, she wrote:


"What's better than One Star? Two. What a magical night!! Who knew we would both get stars at the grand opening of the new @tylerperrystudios."


A Night to Remember

Of course, her new boyfriend made sure to leave a comment on the post, saying: "Incredibly well deserved. And you were absolutely perfect last night."

They were referring to their own stars on Perry's 330-acre lot, likened to that of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. She got one for her work on Perry's "House of Payne," and James on "For Better or Worse."


Keshia's First Marriage

Prior to her relationship with Brad, he was married to former NFL player Ed Hartwell. They were married from 2016 to 2018, but their marriage was rocky from the beginning as both parties accused each other of cheating.

In fact, Hartwell demanded a paternity test when Pulliam got pregnant, but the test results proved that he is the father of their daughter, Ella Grace.

Hartwell's Quick Re-Marriage

It turns out, Hartwell cheated just shortly after they got married, which led to Pulliam's decision to divorce her then-husband.


Even before their divorce was finalized, Hartwell began a relationship with Tonya Carroll, with whom he shares a daughter named Sevynn Elise.


Finding Mr. Right

After news of their wedding broke out, Pulliam shared a quote on Instagram about how "every girl deserves a guy that can make her heart forget that it was ever broken."

Now that she's found Brad, fans hope that he's finally that guy who makes that happen for Keshia. After all, everyone deserves their own "happily ever after."
