Kerry Washington is no stranger to rumors about her private life. However, there have been mounting rumors suggesting that Washington may be a secret lesbian. According to a Nov. 2 story by Perez Hilton, the “Scandal” star is once again dealing with this issue. The busy star took a few moments to address the swirling whispers.
Despite having secretly married Nnamdi Asomugha, the lesbian rumors did not stop. Sadly, now that Kerry Washington is pregnant, it seems they may have intensified. However, in her comments the rising starlet blasted her critics.
I like how people will post pictures of me with other women that I adore, hugging on red carpets, and say, 'See?' Are we so uncomfortable with love between two people of the same gender that we immediately label it as sexual?” -Kerry Washington
But I've never been bothered by the lesbian rumor. There's nothing offensive about it, so there's no reason to be offended." -Kerry Washington
It seems sad that despite being married and pregnant, Kimberly Washington is once again having to address this issue. However, the Hollywood rumor mill has relentlessly pushed this issue. Do you think there is any merit to this story or is it all being blown out of proportion?
