Cutie Kerry Washington has yet to celebrate her second wedding anniversary, but she’s already facing a marriage “Scandal!”
RadarOnline has learned that the 38-year-old beauty and husband, retired NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, are in “couples therapy.”
A close source revealed: “The root of the problem is that Nnamdi feels threatened by Kerry’s success.”
Asomugha, 33, has been out of the spotlight since leaving the NFL, while Washington – who plays a Capitol Hill “fixer” on the hit ABC series Scandal – is one of the hottest names in Hollywood.
“Nnamdi’s bitter because he feels he should be the breadwinner,” added the source.
Now the Django Unchained actress is trying to save the marriage with professional help, and she’s getting reassurance from another Hollywood name, according to sources.
“Kerry’s close friends with Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s urged Kerry and Nnamdi to tackle their issues head on,” a pal said. “She’s hoping couples counseling can help them overcome their problems before things reach the point of no return.”
Of course, Paltrow may not be of any help considering the actress just officially “uncoupled” from estranged hubby Chris Martin.
