We’re not sure why he’s taken this long to address the rumors, but Kordell Stewart has finally spoken out on his supposed rebound relationship with Towanda Braxton. And after all of that energy we spent questioning the romance, we’re now finding out from Porsha Stewart’s ex that he never was involved with the Braxton Family Values star.

Now, it’s not that they were our favorite couple, but we still liked the inter-reality show drama of it all. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta husband was on a radio show on February 13, where he was finally put on the spot about whether he’d found love post-Porsha with Toni Braxton’s sister.

“Towanda Braxton is a very nice lady. I had the opportunity to meet her and…no, we’re not dating.” Kordell reveals in the interview. Huh, there you have it!

So how did that rumor even get started? The way every Hollywood “coupling” happens: They posed for a photo together. “As you see on the blogs, we were at an event,” Kordell explains, continuing, “And we took a picture together. And it just shot off from there. Reality TV, first thing you know it, it’s a big story. And one thing leads to another.”

Though Kordell maintains that they are not romantically connected, he did say that he appreciated meeting her… he’s just not looking for a relationship right now. “[She’s] a nice lady,” the former NFL star says. “I got the opportunity to meet her. She’s cool people. But I got a lot going on over here. Again, my relationship is parenthood.”

Per usual, everything Tamar Braxton says is on point. Just a couple weeks back on Watch What Happens Live, the singer was asked whether she knew anything about her sister’s rumored relationship. “I ain’t ever met no Kordell and last time I checked, my sister Towanda was married, so I don’t know what the tea is on that,” Tamar told host Andy Cohen.

Are you surprised Kordell and Towanda aren’t dating? Tell us in the comments below.
