KESHIA'S FAVORITE MEN

Keshia took to her Instagram yesterday and delighted her followers when she posted photos of her three favorite men who’ve served the country at one point. She identified them in hashtags as #MyMan, #My Dad, and #MyGrandpa.

Keshia’s caption revealed two of these men were marines and one was an army man. Based on the first photo featuring her new man, he’s one of the marines since he was dressed in the uniform.

More interestingly, Keshia adds that these three men all carried the name James. Keshia’s father is James Knight Pulliam, Sr. and her grandfather is also James Pulliam. Her new man is reportedly named Brad James.

It’s unclear how Brad and Keshia met but they’ve reportedly been coursing through the same circles for about five years. They also worked together in Lifetime’s “Pride and Prejudice: Atlanta.”

MORE ABOUT BRAD

This is not the first time we’re learning about Brad but we’re still intrigued. Brad first came to our attention in the summer when his face popped up in Keshia’s social media.

Last month, the 40-year-old shared a romantic photo from their attendance at Tyler Perry’s new studio where both received stars on Tyler’s Walk of Fame. Keshia gushed over the magical night.

KESHIA'S TUMULTUOUS PAST

James has never been married and has no known children in contrast to Keshia who was married once to Ed Hartwell and has a two-year-old daughter named Ella Grace.

Keshia’s marriage hogged headlines when it abruptly ended after six months. They tied the knot on New Year’s Day in 2016 and were filing for divorce by July 2016 after Ed accused Keshia of cheating on him and getting pregnant with another man’s child.

Keshia fought back and accused Ed of cheating on her instead. She would later prove through a paternity test that Ed was indeed the father of Ella.

Ella was born in January 2017 and their divorce was finalized in April 2018.

The ex-couple’s custody battle was also a headline grabber. In March, Keshia won against Ed who contested a previous settlement that awarded Keshia primary custody of their two-year-old daughter, Ella Grace. Ed challenged Keshia by petitioning for joint custody but failed.
