Divorce Run-Down: Ralph Pittman & Drew Sidora
On March 1, PEOPLE reported that Ralph Pittman filed to divorce ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Drew Sidora. The pair were married for almost nine years.
In the filing, Pittman reportedly listed their date of separation as February 23. Furthermore, his filing contributed to the couple’s split to irreconcilable divorces.
Then, the following day, reports surfaced of Sidora’s amended divorce complaint. RadarOnline reported that Sidora accused Pittman of being a “serial cheater and adulterer.”
Additionally, Sidora also accused Pittman of being physically aggressive toward her, per The Shade Room.
At the time, it was also revealed that Sidora beat Pittman to the courthouse. Additionally, it was noted that Sidora filed her petition just 61 minutes ahead of Pittman.
In August, Sidora opened up about her and Pittman’s split on the season finale of ‘RHOA.’
“It has been a lot of things that have been happening over the course of the marriage, and, honestly, things were just not getting better,” she explained.
