TAB: Denzel Washington And Wife Splitting Up After Actor “Caught” Cheating

Truth rating: 0

“Denzel Caught Cheating!” screams a headline in Star, which goes on to claim that Denzel Washington’s 30-year marriage to wife Pauletta is “on the brink of a breakdown.”

According to the supermarket tabloid, “after decades of battling infidelity rumors,” the Oscar-winner’s wife “has reached her breaking point.”

The mag then offers several unsubstantiated claims of Washington being unfaithful, and quotes a so-called “close pal” of the actor as saying, “Denzel has always sweet-talked his way out of it.”

But an alleged incident occurred last month that Star says was the “last straw” for Pauletta.

The tab writes that the actor’s wife became “furious” after he was “looking cozy with a pretty blonde at a house party near their Beverly Hills home.”

“A reconciliation seems unlikely,” adds the mag, which has its alleged “mole” say Washington’s wife has “had enough.”

Now, it’s time for Gossip Cop to say enough.

Star, which is already having a bad week when it comes to accuracy, is wrong again here.

Despite the wholly unsubstantiated rumors, the Washingtons are fine.

A source close to the actor tells Gossip Cop the tabloid’s report is “nonsense.”

And Washington’s rep adds, “They are not divorcing, not separating.”
