Kerry Washington Has Been Married For Just Over A Year, So Cue The Divorce Rumors

Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope on Scandal shut it down GIFAlright everyone, I need you all to gather in the living room, because Kerry Washington has been married for over a year already and somehow we've been lying down on the job as far as starting up divorce rumors. THIS SHALL NOT STAND.

But even though we've been slacking on that front, it appears the rest of the internet has not, and word on the street creepy back alley of the internet is that there's trouble in paradise. Even though Kerry and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha have only been married since the summer of 2013, and their daughter Isabelle is only eight months old, we're supposed to believe that their marriage is essentially over. Okie dokie.

I guess this is what happens when you live a private life, y'know? Kerry does pretty much everything in secret — from her wedding to waiting until she couldn't conceal her pregnancy anymore to announce it to giving birth — so it isn't a stretch to imagine that we'd also be the last people to know if the marriage was in trouble.

Which, now that I think about it, is exactly as it should be. If Kerry and Nnamdi are getting a divorce, they'll do so behind closed doors, and because it's because it's the best option for them, not because the internet was for or against it. (I should know. I've made enough noise at Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner about what I think about their union.) But in the meantime, Hollywood Life is on hand with a source to exclusively deny the rumors:

“[The divorce is] not happening. They are actually excited for the holidays as a family and have no drama in their lives. Leave that for the TV show!”

Yeah sure, we'll get right on that. Just as soon as we start being able to DVR celebrities' private conversations. Oh my god that's some Black Mirror shit. I need to lie down.
