Porsha Williams files for divorce

 February 26, 2024

Reality television star Porsha Williams has filed for divorce from Simon Duobadia.

People magazine reports that Williams filed the divorce paperwork on Thursday at a court in Atlanta, Georgia.

Per the outlet:

Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia's marriage is coming to an end over a year after they tied the knot. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" alum filed for divorce from Guobadia on Thursday in Atlanta, according to court documents obtained by PEOPLE.

The divorce comes roughly 15 months after Williams and Duobadia got married.


Williams and Duobadia tied the knot in November 2022, after a very brief courtship.

"Guobadia proposed to Williams in May 2021 after publicly dating for just one month, and the betrothal was not without its controversy, as Guobadia had been previously married to Williams’ friend and co-star Falynn Pina," Page Six reports.

Williams, at the time, attempted to defend the quick engagement.

"Yes we are crazy in love. I know it's fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night," she wrote on social media.

In November 2022, Williams and Guobadia got married twice. The first wedding, according to People, was "a Nigerian traditional native law and custom ceremony," while the second was "an American ceremony in Atlanta."

Why the divorce?

This question has yet to be answered. But, it is well-known that there have been a lot of cheating allegations made.

"Not long after Williams and Guobadia became engaged, the businessman accused Falynn of cheating on him," Page Six reports. The outlet adds, "A month prior, Guobadia attempted to shoot down rumors that he had cheated on both Falynn and Williams by offering $50,000 in cash to anyone with credible proof of his infidelity."

Still, it is unclear whether stuff like this has anything to do with the divorce filing. Williams did post a social media message on Sunday - just days after filing the divorce - in which she thanked her fans for their support. She wrote, "Thank you for your prayers & support [broken-heart emoji and prayer emoji] – PW."

Guobadia also posted a social media message of his own. Page Six reports, "Guobadia . . . posted a series of photos of himself seemingly unfazed while hanging by his pool . . . wrot[ing], “Enthusiastically welcoming Spring. Happy Saturday."

It would appear that the divorce is affecting Williams more than Guobadia. But, of course, there is a possibility that this is just what Guobadia wants people to believe.
