Porsha Williams has taken to her Instagram on Sunday, February 25, with a touching message, where the famous "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star declared her fresh split from Simon Guobadia. At 42 thanked the fans for standing with her despite trying times after filing for the divorce on Thursday, February 22.

The simple but poignant note had white text written against a black background. "Thank you for your prayers and support," was completed by emojis of broken hearts and prayer hands. Brief though it was, indeed, Williams did receive love from her fans for the strength given in reporting on what happened with a detailed explanation.

It also didn't take long before the comments on Williams's post flowed into a highly edifying pool, with fans coming in droves to uplift the television personality. One well-wisher left a note referring to resilience and divine support when they took time to note that Williams' worth and love were not up to the sole decision of humans but by a factor beyond human scope.

Another comment read warm sentiments, calling Williams a "Queen" and proclaiming their love and prayers on her behalf to the community.

Williams-Guobadia Split Details

They became engaged in the same year, that is in May 2021, when they'd barely started dating.

In less than half a year later, in November 2022, they exchanged marriage vows. Williams was never reticent about the speed at which her relationship with Guobadia took off, writing online how the two found and chased their happiness against all expectations.

This was indeed Williams's second marriage, as she had been married to Kordell Stewart from 2011 to 2013. She is in a pretty long-term relationship with Dennis McKinley, with whom she shares a child—a daughter, PJ, born in 2019.

Although Guobadia has not spoken on the subject of the divorce, sources close to the couple have referred to the issue as a "pending" one and have been quick to dispel recent rumors that have circulated about Guobadia's past and claimed their cancellation had no correlation with the couple's choice to break up.
