Denzel Hayes Washington, Jr. is one of the finest actors of all time. This Hollywood actor, director and producer recently got the public buzzing with talk regarding Big Trouble in his supposed Marital Bliss. Is it a case of the terribly clichéd ‘Another Woman’ in his life? How will it all end is the question everyone and his wife wants answered!
Denzel has been hailed as being one of those rare breed of Hollywood stars that have had a remarkably steady family and marital life. He married actress Pauletta Pearson on the 25th of June, 1983. It was a first marriage for the both of them. He had met her when they were filming the television film Wilma, which was his first screen job. This devout Christian couple has four grown-up children John David, Katia and the twins Olivia and Malcolm. The couple renewed their marriage vows and rededicated themselves to each other in 1995 in the presence of Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
In 2003, Denzel Washington’s fans and the public in general, were shocked when rumors first started surfacing about his alleged affair with his beautiful co-star Sanaa Lathan during the shooting of the film Out of Time. Sanaa Lathan is an actress who has acted in some of the top hit movies of Hollywood and has also given voice to many animated characters in films. Though both of them denied it, people were saddened to hear that their icon and a supposedly upright family man, a married man of 30 years had gone the way of other Hollywood stars. July, 2013 was the month when stories about his infidelities became stronger and there was even talk about an impending divorce between the two of them; but Denzel strongly denied all divorce stories and stood by his marriage and wife.
Despite his and that of his representative’s disclaimers, the Washington’s allegedly spent their 30th wedding anniversary apart and there have also been reports that Paulette has moved to New York to reassess her marriage to Denzel Washington. A sad ending, indeed if it happens.
