Kerry Washington and her husband, retired NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, are reportedly in “couples therapy.”
A close source revealed: “The root of the problem is that Nnamdi feels threatened by Kerry’s success.”
Nnamdi has pretty much been living under the radar since leaving the NFL, and we all know that Kerry is primetime television’s “it girl” thanks to her role as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal.
“Nnamdi’s bitter because he feels he should be the breadwinner,” added the source.
Now the Django Unchained actress is trying to save the marriage with professional help, and she’s getting reassurance from another Hollywood name, according to sources.
“Kerry’s close friends with Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s urged Kerry and Nnamdi to tackle their issues head on,” a pal said. “She’s hoping couples counselling can help them overcome their problems before things reach the point of no return.”?
Of course, Paltrow may not be of any help considering the actress just officially “uncoupled” from estranged hubby Chris Martin.
Kerry’s so secretive when it comes to her personal life, we can’t imagine how any of this information (if it’s true) would actually get out. If it is true, we wish them the best — they’re adorable together.
