Kerry Washington‘s marriage to Nnamdi Asomugha is not on “shaky ground,” despite a tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the claim. We’re told it’s “ridiculous.”

According to Star, the tabloid did some”Olivia Pope-style sleuthing” and found out the “Scandal” star’s marriage is falling apart, noting they’ve “put their Hollywood Hills home up for sale.” The tabloid then quotes a so-called “source close to the couple” saying, “They’re starting to realize they might have rushed into marriage. Maybe they thought having a baby would save their relationship, but it’s only made matters worse.”

The alleged “source” adds that the parents of 1-year-old daughter Isabelle “rarely spend any time together as it is, and even when they do, it always ends up in an argument. She’s miserable, and it’s starting to show.” The magazine editorializes that with Washington supposedly “contemplating divorce,” selling off the family home will make her and Asomugha’s “inevitable split that much simpler.”

Actually, the only thing that is on “shaky ground” is the reporting at Star, a magazine that seemingly picked up a couple of inaccurate reports about Washington’s marriage. In May, Gossip Cop exclusively busted In Touch when it wrongly claimed the actress’ marriage was “over.” We similarly corrected Life & Style when it falsely claimed Washington and Asomugha were “separated.”

Time has passed, and clearly those stories were untrue. In any event, Gossip Cop checked in with a rock solid Washington source, and we’re exclusively assured the latest tale is also “ridiculous.”
