Pauletta and Denzel’s Relationship
In 1995, Pauletta Washington renewed her vows with Denzel Washington in South Africa. They have certainly showcased their love for each other on numerous occasions in their 30 years together.
In 2013, there were rumors of Denzel Washington cheating on his wife with a mystery woman, when pictures of the American Gangster star kissing a woman spread like wildfire.
People thought it was the end of a beautiful marriage, but when the stars were approached, they flatly denied the rumors of a split. Pauletta at the time had said,
“I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part. He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.”
The couple chose to put the worse behind them and continue on the path of love together, and they show it even today. The two looked happier than ever last night at the 2018 Golden Globes!

Washington met her husband on the set of the movie Wilma in 1977, where she played the role of Mae Faggs. Though we’re unsure if it was love at first sight, the couple has proved that love and marriage are very important for a person’s success, especially in Hollywood. On the battle ground that has seen the loss of many celebrity unions, it seems these two have weathered any storm that has come their way.
Golden Globes 2018
Denzel Washington, who was the 2016 Cecil B. Demille award winner, came onto the red carpet this year with Pauletta Washington by his side. She was all ears and all support for what he had to say about the current situation in Hollywood.
“It’s important to follow through, it’s important to see what’s happening a year from tonight,” the star said when asked about how he feels about everyone wearing black to the 75th Golden Globes in solidarity against sexual harassment.
He added, “A year from tonight, the ritual will surely be back. The red carpet, the poses, the flashing lights, the soundbites. The dresses will be colorful again, and the audience will remember when nearly every celebrity wore black – maybe as a showy stunt, or maybe as the thing that made just a bit of a difference.”
While nearly all the stars were asked this same question in one sense or another, many were on the fence about Denzel Washington’s answer. Regardless of his response to the stars wearing black, Pauletta stood by his side throughout and showed the world her love and unwavering support for her husband.
