Kerry Washington gives a remarkable performance in the role of Olivia Pope, but is the actress caught up in a scandal of her own?

The mommy-to-be and her husband Nnamdi Asomugha are at the epicenter of speculated marriage trouble as vicious new rumors have surfaced that 32-year-old retired NFL star Asomugha is gay and only married the 37-year-old "Scandal" star to hide his sexuality, SportsWorldNews reported.

"Everyone on the NFL knew he was gay, and he's slept around a bit, even once with a former Philly player who is now out of the closet, and who I am now friends with, thus I have direct information on," a source close to the couple told gossip website, Bossip. "Now that he has switched careers to acting, he's been seen for example, at Thursday's John Wooten Awards event in NYC chatting up an unknown young man for the whole night and leaving with him."

Washington and Asomugha were married in a secret wedding in June and little to no information was known about them being a couple before tying the knot. The duo only continued to raise eyebrows during award's season when Washington showed up on the red carpet sans husband at the Golden Globes as well as the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

This isn't the first time rumors have circulated about the parents-to-be and their relationship.

As we previously reported, back in December, Washington's marriage was under speculation after Asomugha retired from the NFL and sources reported the football player had complaints regarding Washington's hectic work schedule.

"Nnamdi is complaining [Kerry] has time to promote her TV show, business ventures and charities, but she rarely spares an evening to be home with him," a source said.

"Instead of slowing down during her show's Christmas hiatus, Kerry funneled her extra time into her fashion consultation business and her responsibilities as a creative consultant for Neutrogena cosmetics," the source went on to tell. "They've had several blow-ups and each time Kerry swears she's going to slow down."

We're hoping that these rumors are untrue, as we'd hate to see Washington facing the pressures of a failed marriage while pregnant.
