Michelle Obama has reportedly banned actress Kerry Washington from the White House for being “too flirty” with President Obama.

The First Lady was said to have a “watch list” of women that were to be kept away from her 50-year-old husband - but it’s a story one White House official claims is totally false.

According to an article in the National Enquirer, the 48-year-old wife of Obama planned to keep the actress at arm’s length, despite Washington’s honorary post on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.

A White House official said that the story is “100 per cent false,” the Daily Mail reported.

Kerry Washington
Washington, 35, is a keen Democrat and campaigned for Obama in the 2008 president race.

There were striking parallels between the explosive claims and Washington’s latest role in a new ABC series called Scandal.

She plays character Olivia Pope, the tough boss in a crisis management firm, protecting the public images of the Washington political elite.

In the first episode, it was revealed that Pope had a long-running affair with the fictional American president Fitzgerald Grant.

The National Enquirer also named Scarlett Johansson as another “flirt” who made Michelle’s banned list.
