Kerry addressed the rumors about her marriage at the SXSW Festival .

US Weekly writes:

Loaded! Kerry Washington finally addressed rumors of a possible split from husband Nnamdi Asomugha and debunked any speculation about trouble in their relationship on Sunday, March 13.

“I think it’s a double-edged sword,” the Scandal lead, 39, said of social media interest in celebrities at “The New Rules of Social Stardom” chat at the ongoing SXSW Festival in Austin, Texas.

“I think — and this is something Reese Witherspoon has talked about a lot — it’s a little different for me because I don’t talk about my personal life,” the resolutely private actress said. “Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities’] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, ‘That’s not true! Just so you know, that’s BS!’ I say ‘BS’ because it’s Sunday. So I’m thinking in some ways, it’s been great because people are able to maintain their voice.”

Washington, however, has no desire to overshare on Twitter or Instagram, which she uses mainly to promote her beloved ABC drama. “If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life,” she explained. “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.”

  1. They need to just stop reaching…If she is, she is, if she ain’t she ain’t…….there’s hundreds of other celebs to report on with marriage and relationship woes some of them are acutally putting the stories out themselves ie; the Kartrashians and now Black Chyna and them… they need to leave Kerry alone

  2. I don’t think they are having problems. The media just hates private couples. They do the same thing to Beyonce and Jay Z. It is what it is.

  3. I always figured her way of shutting down the rumors was showing off her wedding ring on IG once a week with her new manicures. I think it’s a cute and subtle way of denying a divorce.

  4. She’s a smart woman. The media loves to tear apart marriages and she’s decided not to give them any material to ruin hers.
