It’s safe to say that Keshia Knight Pulliam has gone through enough drama in the last year to last a lifetime.

A million lifetimes, probably.

Keshia got married to former NFL player Ed Hartwell on January 1st, 2016. They shared a few months of what we assume was marital bliss — at the very least, things were fine.

Then, that July, she announced that she was expecting her first child with Ed. Adorable, right?

Not so much, because just a few days later, Ed filed for divorce. Not only that, but he demanded a paternity test for Keshia’s unborn child.

The implication for the paternity test, of course, was that he was concerned she’d been cheating on him.

He said as much in an interview, claiming that during their marriage, she’d been gone from home a lot, staying out all night and going out of town, so he wanted to "make sure" he was the father.

In turn, she revealed that he was the one who cheated on her, and that she was ready to leave him because of it when she found out she was pregnant.

What a mess, right? But wait, it gets worse!

Though Keshia was offended by Ed’s request for a paternity test, she agreed to it — and surprise, he was the father!

She gave birth to their baby, a sweet little girl named Ella Grace, in January, so the obvious next step is a custody battle.

And that’s where we are now.

Keshia and Ed are in the middle of a court battle for the ages, and she filed new papers this week in which she claimed that Ed had a girlfriend during their marriage.

Not only that — the girlfriend was allegedly conspiring somehow to force a miscarriage on her!

Keshia claims that a mutual friend of the former couple came forward to tell her that Ed’s mistress was upset that his wife had become pregnant, so she "wanted to get something that would cause someone to have a miscarriage."

Like some kind of pill, perhaps? A magic potion? The help of a powerful dark sorcerer?

It’s hard to say, but, interestingly enough, this isn’t the first time Keshia’s accused someone of trying to force her to have a miscarriage.

According to court documents she filed back in August, she believed that Ed’s "deep-seated rage and uncontrollable anger" was stressful to her, and though he knew it, he continued to act out.

Apparently hoping that the stress would cause Keshia to miscarry?

It’s hard to say.

But what’s not hard to say is that we feel just a boatload of pity for that poor, precious little baby girl for having to live with all of this.
