Not that it ought to matter since it’s her life, her choices, but Kerry Washington did not pull a Khloe Kardashian. That is, she didn’t meet Nnamdi Asomugha and after a month of dating say, “Hey, let’s get married!” According to new reports, the two dated a few years ago and have been in touch for years before tying the knot in Iowa.

More via the New York Daily News:

Kerry Washington and her new husband, Nnamdi Asomugha, started dating a few years ago after he and a mutual friend of theirs went to see Kerry on Broadway in “Race,” we are reliably informed. Kerry told Nnamdi that she didn’t date athletes, and he told her he didn’t date actresses, but they got together anyway. Nnamdi, a four-time All-Pro cornerback, is entering his 11th NFL season, his first with the 49ers. He was the highest-paid defensive back in the league’s history when he was signed to the Eagles with $60 million contract.
