Scandal star Kerry Washington’s marriage to husband Nnamdi Asomugha has been reportedly on the rocks for months – and the couple has been supposedly talking about the possibility of divorce (quietly and privately, of course). Kerry Washington is super secretive – she refuses to discuss her personal life on social media, interviews, etc.
Listening to the Scandal actress try to dispute the divorce rumors without falling off her high horse and “discussing her personal life” while she gave a speech at SXSW about celebs keeping their personal lives private is super confusing, and borderline funny. But, we’re pretty sure Kerry snuck in a little tidbit in there trying to shutdown divorce rumors without “discussing her personal life.”
Kerry Washington arrived in Texas for her lecture at SXSW: “New Rules of Social Stardom.” The actress discusses how she had kept her personal life out of the limelight for so many years, and why it worked for her and her family. Washington dished, “If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life. That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.”
Translation? The ‘Scandal’ actress wants to make it very clear that just because she doesn’t “talk about her personal life” and shut down divorce rumors – doesn’t mean that they are true. That was pretty Olivia Pope-esque, don’t you think? Washington managed to use a lecture about keeping her personal life private as a platform to let the media know that there was nothing wrong with her marriage – and covertly, so it didn’t seem like she was discussing her personal life!
So, what do you think, Scandal fans? Is there trouble in Kerry Washington’s marriage? Or are the divorce rumors just rumors? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
