Washington and Asomugha were married in a secret wedding ceremony in June 2013. They have been extremely protective of their relationship since they started dating. And even though they've tied the knot, they still are rarely spotted in public together and hardly ever share details about their life as a married couple.
All appears well when the Scandal actress and ex-footballer do go on a public outings together. But a source close to the two -- who welcomed their daughter, Isabelle Amarachi, in April 2014 -- says that tension is quickly growing between the couple.
“The root of the problem is that Nnamdi feels threatened by Kerry’s success,” the insider said.
The insider added that Asomugha, who announced his retirement from the NFL in December 2013, is “bitter because he feels he should be the breadwinner.”
But the source said that Washington is acting now to make sure she and her husband work out any possible marriage troubles that could damage their relationship.
“Kerry’s close friends with Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s urged Kerry and Nnamdi to tackle their issues head on,” a friend said. “She’s hoping couples counseling can help them overcome their problems before things reach the point of no return.” Do you think Kerry and Nnamdi are a good match?
