*Keisha Knight Pulliam’s ex-husband claims the time she took their daughter with her to support Bill Cosby during his first sexual assault trial, it interfered with his scheduled visits and now he’s using that in an effort to get a new custody trial.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Ed Hartwell is demanding a new trial over custody of his 1-year-old baby girl and accuses the judge of making several errors when Keisha was awarded primary custody.
Last month, Hartwell was ordered to pay $3,007 a month in child support and instructed not to take oxycodone or anti-depressants while driving with the child. The judge noted evidence which showed Hartwell declined to exercise visitation during most of his scheduled visitation.

In his newly filed docs, Hartwell claims Knight-Pulliam would sporadically change the visitation location, making it difficult for him to see his child.
The former NFLer also claims his ex-wife denied him visitation during the eight weeks she filmed the reality show “Celebrity Big Brother.”
Hartwell is demanding a new trial, saying he deserves at least joint legal custody of his daughter.
According to the report, he also takes issue with the amount of child support awarded, claiming the court determined the amount based on Knight-Pulliam’s monthly income of $8,765. He says she actually pulls in around $20k a month and therefore the support needs to be changed, per The Blast.
The case is ongoing.
