Kerry Washington and Nnamndi Asomaugha Marriage Trouble: Kerry Puts Career Before Pregnancy and Husband

Right now Kerry Washington should be on top of the world. She is currently the leading actress on ABC’s hit show Scandal, just got married in June to former NFL player Nnamdi Asomaugha, and is expecting her first child. She should be on top of the world, but it seems the one person who should be the most supportive of her – her husband Nnamdi – is jealous of Kerry’s success and disapproves of all the time she puts into work. According to the National Enquirer:

“Nnamdi is complaining [Kerry] has time to promote her TV show, business ventures and charities, but she rarely spares an evening to be home with him.”

According to the source Nnamdi said he is concerned that they are already growing apart.

“Instead of slowing down during her show’s Christmas hiatus, Kerry funneled her extra time into her fashion consultation business and her responsibilities as a creative consultant for Neutrogena cosmetics,” said the source.

“Kerry feels she can balance a public life and private life with Nnamdi and their baby,” said the source. “But Nnamdi is not convinced. They’ve had several blow-ups, and each time Kerry swears she’s going to slow down. “But in the end she may lose something that doesn’t come along very often – a loving husband.”

Perhaps adding to Nnamdi’s disdain over Kerry working so much is that he isn’t working enough. Although Nnamdi was one of the best cornerbacks for a few years, age and injury caught up to him and hindered his ability to play at his optimal level, thus stalling his football career. He was cut from the San Francisco 49ers in November, and signed with the Oakland Raiders only to announce his retirement from the NFL on Friday December 27, 2013. At a press conference at the Oakland Raiders headquarters Nnamdi said, “After 11 seasons in the NFL, I will be retiring today. I’ve been blessed and fortunate to have a successful NFL career,” adding that,”another journey is starting for me right now.

Perhaps once Kerry and Nnamdi’s baby arrives life will gain a new perspective for the both of them. Kerry may prioritize her schedule to put family first, and Nnamdi will learn to appreciate his wife’s success and her strong work ethics as he finds himself busy with his fatherly duties. If they aren’t able to do this they may just end up another Hollywood marital statistic – done before they have even really begun.

    Hmm wonder if this is true of just another story?

    Yes, female celeb shows up for work on time every day, works hard! She must hate her husband and unborn child. lol

      Aloha :) I don’t think anyone thinks she hates her husband and definitely not her unborn child. It is about her husband taking issue with her work schedule – but right now she is on the top of her game so she will be busy. It was my opinion that maybe because he isn’t working much – as he just retired – he is feeling despondent over that and projecting those feeling onto her. If he was busy too he wouldn’t care as much that her schedule is full right now :) Enjoy your weekend .. JZ

        It makes no sense. Why would her husband have problems with her work schedule when he knew she was already busy when he married her. Plus he just retired yesterday so he hasnt been out of work long and it was his decision not do to injury. I would be leery of these sources because Kerry is very private and info about her doesn’t get out unless she wants it.

        • julie.zelko says:

          You could very well be right! And yes they are both very private. If these sources are correct it could just be case where right now due to the big transition he is going through – meaning walking away from what has been his passion and career – may be weighing on him as he sees her being so busy and enjoying so much success. I am sure at the end of the day he is happy for her, but it wouldn’t be the first time a guy had a hard time taking a back seat to his wife’s success – take Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillipe for example. Once their first child arrives they will be so happy and busy I think much of this (if true) will work itself out :)

  3. […] Kerry’s happily married, (is she?) and I doubt she would entertain the thought of hooking up with a president, current or […]
