Kerry Washington is not planning to divorce former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this story. We’re told it’s simply “not true.”

According to Life & Style, Washington and Asomugha, who have been married for two years, have “pretty much separated.” The tabloid alleges Washington will be “filing in the new year.” The reason? The magazine claims Washington has become frustrated because, while she works grueling hours on the set of “Scandal,” Asomugha has supposedly done next to nothing since being cut from the San Francisco 49ers in October 2013.

The tabloid then has a so-called source say Asomugha “resents” Washington, and “believes [she’s] the one who’s given up on their marriage.” The same unnamed “insider” adds, “Things have gotten so bad, [they’re] barely speaking anymore.” The magazine further alleges Washington and Asomugha, who have a 19-month-old daughter named Isabelle, unsuccessfully tried couples therapy.

A source close to Washington, however, exclusively assures Gossip Cop that the tabloid’s story is “not true,” and there are absolutely no plans for the couple to divorce. Earlier this year, Gossip Cop corrected the magazine’s sister publication, In Touch, for similarly wrongly reporting the couple’s marriage was “over.” It wasn’t true then, and it isn’t any more accurate now.
