The marriage of "Scandal" star Kerry Washington and retired NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha is said to be on the rocks after the two were rumored to have enrolled in couple's therapy just recently.

A Radar Online source initially revealed that the couple has sought therapy primarily because of the success of Washington in her "Scandal" TV series.

"The root of the problem is that Nnamdi feels threatened by Kerry's success," the source claimed.

The 33-year-old Asomugha is not on the spotlight anymore since he retired from the league while Washington's highly acclaimed political thriller "Scandal" has earned her praise in Hollywood.

"Nnamdi's bitter because he feels he should be the breadwinner," said Radar Online's source.

The same report explained that the effort of enrolling in couple's therapy is an indication that the couple wants to seek professional help.

The Radar Online source also revealed that Washington is "getting reassurance" from her friend Gwyneth Paltrow about the matter.

"She's urged Kerry and Nnamdi to tackle their issues head on. She's hoping couples counseling can help them overcome their problems before things reach the point of no return," a friend with knowledge on the issue told Radar Online.

A similar Fashion & Style report said the "Scandal" main star remains mum on issues concerning her family. It also noted that the marriage could already lead to divorce because allegedly, the NFL player has already left their California home.

In December last year, rumors also swirled that the couple were having troubles in their marriage and that the two were already mulling on getting a divorce since they were not spending time together anymore.

But a Hollywood Life writeup explained back in December that "there's no scandal in Kerry's personal life," noting that the divorce rumors were far from the truth.

"[The divorce is] not happening. They are actually excited for the holidays as a family and have no drama in their lives. Leave that for the TV show!" a source told Hollywood Life.

Things might have changed since then.

Married in 2013, Washington and Asomugha have a one-year-old daughter named Isabelle.

The two have been quite secretive about their relationship even from the start. They were also wed in a "super secret ceremony" attended only by family and close friends.

E! Online obtained a copy of their marriage certificate from the Idaho's office of Vital Statistics which showed that they were married on June 24, 2013 in Hailey, Idaho.

The marriage reportedly came a year after the two started dating. "Washington's parents, Earl and Valerie, signed the certificate as witnesses, and the groom's sister, Chisaraokwu Asomugha-a minister in Silver Spring, Md.-officiated," added E! Online.

Now that the two have been rumored to enroll themselves into couple's therapy, their family and friends are certainly hoping that they can still work things out.
