Viral video star Andrew Caldwell has woken up and smelled the lawsuit.
Caldwell, best known for his testimony of being "delivert" from homosexuality, made headlines earlier this week for claiming he dated former NFL star Kordell Stewart. He alleged he knew Stewart was married (but was unaware that his wife was “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams) and was showered with gifts such as bags and cars.
Stewart later denied the claims, saying he was a heterosexual man and had no idea who Caldwell was.
In his response, Stewart refrained from directly threatening legal action, but it's clear something spooked Caldwell into issuing a retraction. On Wednesday, The Shade Room obtained an official apology.
"I want to personally apologize to Kordell Stewart for mentioning his name and making false accusations," Caldwell said. When asked if he knew Stewart at all, he replied, "I don't."
Listen to Caldwell's entire statement below.
