Last year, famous viral video star Andrew Caldwell made headlines when he claimed that he had a same-sex romance with former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kordell Stewart. Not surprisingly, Stewart, who has long been plagued by gay rumors, denied the claims and filed a lawsuit against Caldwell over the allegations. Now, more than a year later, a judge has finally ruled on the lawsuit and ruled in favor of Stewart.
As previously reported, in the suit, Stewart claimed that Caldwell came up with the relationship allegations while plotting with producer Jarrius Keyun Moon as a way to gain a buzz for a reality show that Moon was working on called “The Gospel Truth,” which Caldwell was set to star in. Stewart has also named Moon in the suit for his alleged part in the rumors.
Around the time of the lawsuit, Caldwell admitted that he lied about the accusations and he apologized to Stewart for the public drama. However, he dismissed the suit and claimed he would fight back in court against Stewart.
“It’s true, I never dated Kordell. But I’m not worried about the lawsuit. If Kordell wants money, he has money. I don’t owe him a dime,” Caldwell said in an interview.
According to reports, Caldwell failed to show up to court to respond to the lawsuit and Stewart consequently filed a motion for a default judgment against Caldwell.
Not surprisingly, on Nov 4 the judge signed off on the motion and granted the default judgment against Caldwell.
Now, a hearing has been set for a later date for Stewart to show evidence of his damages so the judge can decide how much money Caldwell owes the former reality star.
