Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta are the cover story of the August 2013 issue of Ebony. The couple has been married for thirty years and discuss their relationship in an intimate conversation with the magazine.
Pauletta tells the mag:
“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.”
Hopefully Denzel told him to stop being an idiot and driving drunk.
