Kerry Washington has been fooling us y’all! All the time we’ve been trying to hook her up with co-stars — like Jamie Foxx and Tony Goldwyn — and cracking jokes about her only dating white men, it turns our she’s been dating a black guy all along, and now they’ve jumped the broom!

US Weekly just broke the news that our favorite “Scandal” lady secretly got married at the end of last month. According to the report:

Kerry Washington is a married woman! The Scandal actress, 36, secretly tied the knot with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha late last month, Us Weekly can confirm.

Records show that Washington and Asomugha filed a marriage license on June 24 in Blaine County, Idaho, though a source tells US that the two appear to have gotten married in the town of Hailey, Idaho, with her parents as witnessses. (E! News was first to confirm the marriage, after a story appeared on sports gossip site TerezOwens.)

“It has been recorded in the Blaine County clerk’s office that Nnamdi Asomugha and Kerry Washington have been married on the 24th of June in the town of Hailey, Idaho,” the clerk’s office told Us in a statement.

According to reports, the couple have been dating since the summer of 2012. Washington was previously engaged to actor David Moscow; they split in 2007 after several years together.

Well, color us fooled! Congrats to our favorite girl for getting her groove on with a younger man and walking down the aisle!

    Oh, she just took a page out of Janet Jackson’s book. Nobody knew she was married to her latest husband until a year later. i’m just waiting for the baby news.

  • Bren

    Congrats Kerry! He’s handsome!

  • confused

    but ummm, everyone round here knows he’s gay. Im very confused. Well maybe he’s bi then?

    • MzPW

      Umm…sounds like you’re mixing up Kerry Rhodes w/ Kerry Washington. Two different people, dear,

  • Lathera P

    She was smart enough not to marry a Black American. She chose a Nigerian man which means that her marriage will last. Africans are usually stable minded and many come from two parent background and the ones in this country are very well educated and classy so good for her for marrying an African man! Black American men will only complain that she’s too dark anyway. An African man will treasure her like they treasure their women!

    • C’mon Now!

      Stop your racist crap! There are plenty of great Black American men who have successful marriages, just like there are Nigerians who have failed marriages and are baby mammas and daddies. Just speak well about the two who are now husband and wife. Because if truth be told, If God is not apart of your union, it is subject to great challenges that can destroy the union, regardless of your ethnic background.

    • Kenedy

      Failed logic. I’m African & I know plenty of African men that are straight up losers. Losers exist EVERYWHERE, its not a race or culture or country thing

      • Gimmeabreak78

        Here, here. I, too, am African and know PLENTY OF SCRUBS FROM THE MOTHERLAND, my cousin included (always living in a different woman’s house, kids and baby mamas everywhere, etc).

  • doesn’t matter

    Please explain to me why this is a secret. It was a secret wedding this woman just chose to marry someone she loved without running to the media. Some things needs to be kept out of social media and the press.

    • doesn’t matter


  • IslandGal2012

    I wish people would stop saying “secret” it wasn’t nobodies business but hers and her family.

  • Rebecca Akrofie

    Now MadameNoire will have to take ol’ Kerry off the slideshows of ‘Women who date White Men’ and put in the ‘Women who DATED…’ category!

  • Rebecca Akrofie

    Now this will dampen the flames on those ‘Terry’ Shippers! That mess had to stop some time- Congrats! And a Nigerian too- long live transatlantic travel!

  • LotusBud

    What? I can’t believe she married a black guy.

  • JaneDoe

    This woman right here I just love. Def my role model. Beauty, brains, and class. Just doing her own thing. Many more blessings to the Mrs

  • Mofoluwasho

    Aha! Knew there had to be another reason apart from scandal and her fabulous self why I like Kerry Washington. Their kids will have Nigerian blood. Go Kerry and Nnamdi! Wish you both the best in your marriage. Blessings!

  • FromUR2UB

    Good for her! I am truly impressed. He must be a smart guy,too, because I couldn’t see her with a dummy!

    • C’mon Now!

      Yep! He graduated from University of California Berkley (He stayed all four years in college before going to the NFL)…Nope! No Aaron Hernandez here..He is good stock.

      • C’mon Now!

        Also, his degree is BA in Corporate Finance.

    • Gimmeabreak78

      He is a very smart guy. He has a program where he takes kids on college visits every summer. He intentionally made sure the visits had nothing to do with sports because he felt it was more important that the kids focus on getting quality educations rather than becoming professional athletes. He sounds like a great guy.

  • Shauni

    They bought a house in manhattan beach a couple years ago. They been together for a while.

    • C’mon Now!

      They only being dating sense last Summer (Summer 2012)….not even a full year. Stop spreading lies.

      • guest

    Nnamdi is a fine fine man…And yes nigerian, Good for you kerry! You lucky girl, you.

  • get real

    Stop the presses. Stop the dam* presses. Woooow. Now I can actually believe her “I love being black” sthick.

    • LoveRainy

      Why does she have to be with a black man for you to believe she’s loves herself???smh…..

      • IvyNoLeague

        Exactly talk about ignorance.

      • get real

        “I love being black” but all I date is white men, now how dumb does that sound? Because black women worshipping white men and black men chasing white women is waaaaack. There is nothing more special then a black baby born into this world from two good looking, successful black people. Now how ignorant is that IvyNoLeague?

        • Sean Stanley

          yes people have this notion- that in order for a blacks person to be successful – they have to be mixed or marry white. sad but true, that was what whites told blacks, now blacks are telling themselves that.

        • Gimmeabreak78

          I think it’s sad that you characterize the act of simply dating a white person as the equivalent of worshiping white people in general. That speaks to a very narrow worldview and to your own deep-seated belief that white is somehow superior. Furthermore, I find it troubling that you believe that being comfortable in one’s own skin necessarily means that he/she is uncomfortable with someone else’s skin. Wow.

          • get real

            Uh oh, a hit dog hollered I see. Funny how you deflect and make this about me. Its not about dating a white person, its about ONLY dating white people and to me that worships. The roles that you play all involve swirling. But your hindsight is 20/20 and you new that she was dating Nmandi all along, huh? Don’t play these lil “so if you date a whte person is worship” games with me.

            • Gimmeabreak78

              Again, being comfortable in one’s own skin does not mean that you are uncomfortable with someone else’s skin. How comfortable can you be in your own skin if you are upset with someone else for the color of the skin the person he/she is dating. “It’s not about dating a white person, ito about ONLY dating white people and to me that worships”. Your comment has proven my point. Your worldview that you think that dating all white indicates the worship of whiteness. Could it be that a woman who has only dated white people did so because the people with whom she got along with the best or had the most in common with JUST HAPPENED TO BE WHITE, rather than she went out specifically looking for white people to the exclusion of every other color? Your argument is ridiculous, and before you start screaming that “hurt dog hollered” nonsense, I have dated almost exclusively black men my entire adult life and am currently in a relationship with a black man now.

        • Yah

          get real, please get real.

          • get real

            Right, because me saying that black on black love is better then anything else. How dare I think and say such a thing, huh? Gosh, I need to get real. No I need to please get real.

  • Guest360

    Congrats Kerry!!! Now I don’t want to hear anymore excuses from any celebs about how hard it is to have a private life lol. With all the publicity this woman has gotten over the past year and a half, she STILL managed to not only have a relationship, get engaged but get MARRIED with no one knowing a thing. Kudos to her for keeping her business private 🙂

    • mlw1924

      real talk, if you want privancy, you can have it!!

  • Drew

    Good for them! That’s dope.

  • DaisyDuke

  • Well…friggin congratulations???!!!

  • Noni
