Porsha Williams’ Second Marriage Was Sudden

If you’re a Real Housewives fan, you all remember the tale!

Simon proposed to Porsha in May 2021 after publicly dating for just one month.

Publicly is the important word here, as their relationship initially caused controversy since he was previously married to her “RHOA” friend, Falynn Pina.

There were even accusations of Simon cheating on Falynn while they were still married, but nothing was confirmed.

Classic he-said, she-said.

At any rate, the Bravo star and the entrepreneur married twice in November 2022.

They tied the knot for the first time in an extravagant Nigerian traditional native law and custom ceremony in Atlanta.

When the couple celebrated their first wedding anniversary in November 2023, and she gifted him a lavish diamond wedding band.

Less than three months later, she filed for divorce.

Porsha Divorces Simon Guobadia: What Happened

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star submitted court documents Thursday February 22 in Atlanta to end her second marriage.,

A source did tell the magazine that the cause of the breakup is an “ongoing matter,” but you would’ve never known it by looking at their social media.

The week before, for Valentine’s Day, Simon  posted a photo of her in a bikini surrounded by a huge bouquet of red roses, red balloons and a red teddy bear just last week.

He was all mushy and gushy in the captions too, and she posted a simliar tribute to him for the day of love.

In fact, at the time of announcing the split, the posts were not only still live, but the pair still followed each other on Instagram.

So, whatever the “ongoing matter” was, maybe it was more amicable then we might think?
