Just days after Ebony magazine released its August cover of Denzel Washington and wife Pauletta Pearson, “Celebrating Black Love,” rumors are flying that divorce is on the horizon.
A representative for Denzel quickly denied the rumors telling GossipCop.com:
“They are not divorcing, not separating.”
However, the couple reportedly spent their landmark 30th wedding anniversary on June 25 apart, with sources claiming the decision was prompted by their desire to call time on the marriage.
Another source told Star.com: “She moved to New York to contemplate if she’s ready to end the marriage for good.”
Rumors of the divorce heightened after RadarOnline.com reportedly received photos of Denzel kissing another woman.
“Four photographs, seen by Radar and shopped to other media outlets, show him sitting on a couch with a young lady, and then throughout the series of pictures he grabs her arm and pulls her in for a kiss on the lips in one. The woman is not identified and Radar was not able to verify the authenticity of the photographs.”
It is unknown if Radar or another media outlet will release the alleged photos. In the meantime, it is safe to say that Denzel and Pauletta’s 30-year marriage may remain in tact.
Denzel’s wife told Ebony magazine of their marriage:
“I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part,” she said.
“He has and knows he has stability in me as his wife. That’s what gives him strength, regardless if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”
