Kerry Washington is known for keeping her private life private, and she isn’t about to stop doing that just because of some rumours. The Scandal actress was at the 2016 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival held at the Austin Convention Center on Sunday (March 13) in Austin, Texas to talk about the New Rules of Social Stardom and while there she addressed rumors that she and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha are divorcing.
“I think — and this is something Reese Witherspoon has talked about a lot — it’s a little different for me because I don’t talk about my personal life. Social media has actually been great for [other celebrities’] relationships with the weeklies or the gossip sites because people say things and they say, ‘That’s not true! Just so you know, that’s BS!’ I say ‘BS’ because it’s Sunday. So I’m thinking in some ways, it’s been great because people are able to maintain their voice. If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life. That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.”
