Denzel and Pauletta Washington
The Washingtons jumped the broom in 1983. But that’s after, how John David Washington put it so clearly, Pauletta supported Denzel as he struggled to become an actor. John explained to TODAY, “Before they got married she was on Broadway working. She paid for their first date; she paid the bill; she paid the cab ride.” Adding, “My father taught me to hunt; my mother taught me to love.” What else do we need to say?! We stan for the entire Washington family.
