Geesh! Days Later, Fans Still Bashing Kerry Washington Over Affair Rumors
It’s been a few days since the rumor heated up the social media circuit full steam- that Chris Rock allegedly had an affair with Kerry Washington. How’d that rumor get started? Well, it actually was sparked years ago during their movie together titled, I Think I Love My Wife. However, the rumor mill had simmered down for years about them and was only sparked recently after fans got a load of Rock’s bold revelation in his recent interview with Rolling Stone.
In that interview, he confessed that “I was a piece of sh*t” as a husband to his now ex-wife, Malaak Compton. He also revealed that he’d cheated on her at least three times- once with a famous woman, another time with a semi-famous woman, and also with a non-celebrity female.
Of course everybody and their Mommas tried to determine who the famous woman is because surely we all must know her right? Well as of today, neither Chris, nor Kerry have stepped up to speak against the allegations, which in turn is causing the backlash toward them to run even more rampant. Check out some of the comments that are still being left underneath Washington’s Instagram posts:
After Kerry posted the above photo of herself with actresses, Tracee Ellis Ross and Samara Wiley, below is just a small sample of the comments that were left for Kerry…
@dem7178: Wait a minute wait a minute…your art imitate life? Yous not jus massas bench wench on tv? Yous a side piece? #rumour #askingforafriend
@toni2cold: And here you are married and if not expecting have a child. Imagine your husband doing what you allowed to happen with another woman’s husband! You trif. Done watching scandal …. you’re the real thing
@breeannamartin: So unfortunate that she speaks of women being unified and empowerment and knowingly sleeps with another woman’s husband. Have lost ALL respect for Kerry. #karmaisreal
@perrierlemon: Now I know why you are the female lead in Scandal 😎
There were others who are on her side though…
@kurvy_kae: @breeannamartin how you know it’s the truth though ? It’s calls RUMORS, you people make me so sick. Leave her alone
@cheesa_n: My three favourite Queens in one picture!!! 🙌 ❤️
Meanwhile Chris is getting clobbered with backlash as well over a rumor that has yet to be confirmed.
The thing that raises eyebrows about this is that the alleged affair has been reported as having taken place for about 6 months, around the time of their 2007 film, when they had to spend time together for work. Another thing that’s raising eyebrows in many is that neither Rock, nor Washington have disputed such vicious rumors about them, which could also be due to Kerry’s dislike for publicly discussing personal matters. In a past interview with Essence she explained why:
“I learned through experience that it doesn’t work for me to talk about my personal life. I’ve had earlier times in my career when I did talk about it. I was on the cover of a bridal magazine. But I couldn’t just turn around and say, ‘I only want to talk about the good stuff, but not the bad stuff.’ So I just thought, OK, no more.”
Depending on how one interprets Kerry’s ‘no personal life talk,’ they could either conclude that (1) this falls right in line as to why she isn’t speaking about this new affair rumor, or (2) if the rumor about she and Rock are not true, then technically it would not be about her personal life, so technically she could and should speak out on it.
On a side note, both are in happy relationships now: Kerry’s married to her 35 year old ex-NFL hubby, Nnamdi Asomugha. Chris Rock is in a committed relationship with 33 year old actress, Megalyn Echikunwoke.
Affair or no affair, we’ve still got nothing but love for Chris Rock’s and Kerry Washington’s talents…both are incredibly gifted entertainers who’ve earned their spot in the entertainment game.
