The retired sportsman Kordell Stewart who used to play for Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears now files a $4.5-million lawsuit against the man who revealed the quarterback to be a closeted gay. Andrew Caldwell who is known for his claims he was ‘cured’ of being gay, accused Kordell of having a gay affair in 2015 while he was married to a woman. The lawsuit insists that “at all times during his life, Mr. Stewart has been, and is, a heterosexual male”. The former sportsman alleges he has been damaged him “personally and professionally in a sports industry that has made homosexuality an unenviable, controversial and taboo topic”. The lawsuit added that that “these ‘false’ and harmful allegations have limited his credibility and respect in an industry where toughness and ‘macho’ personalities dominate”. It is not the first LGBT-related case connected with the sportsman. Previously there were rumors about his affair with a trans sex worker he actively denied at Steve Harvey’s show claiming: Guys were here saying that I got arrested in a park having lewd acts performed on me by a transvestite. First of all, when in the world have I gone to jail in Pittsburgh, because there’s no record… I don’t care if it’s 10, 20, 30 years, If it happened, it would be documented! Let alone, being with a transvestite… now, each his own, but the thing I understood about life, is when God created the heaven and earth, he created Adam and Eve. That’s all I know. When this happened, it drew me closer to the word.”
