Page Six: Chris Rock & Kerry Washington had an affair circa 2007

Chris Rock is on the latest issue of Rolling Stone – I covered his interview here. Rock went through a painful divorce for several years, and his divorce was only finalized last year. The Rolling Stone interview was pretty interesting, as RS followed Rock around for months as he put together his latest comedy tour, and as Rock worked out his comedy material, a lot of which is about his divorce. At an early stop at a standup gig, Rock told the audience that he cheated on his wife with three women specifically: “one famous, one semifamous, and one a member of the retail class.” When I covered the interview, I wondered if we would ever learn the identities of any of those women. Honestly, the name that kept popping up in my mind was “Rosario Dawson,” just because I remember many rumors about those two. But Page Six claims the “famous” woman Rock was referencing was none other than… Kerry Washington??

Rumors have swirled since Chris Rock revealed in a comedy routine he cheated on his ex-wife with three different women, including a big star. And sources tell Page Six the famous fling was with “Scandal” star Kerry Washington. A new Rolling Stone cover story reported Rock saying in a routine, “I was a piece of s–t,” of his marriage to ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock. The mag adds that Rock “segues into his infidelities and gets disarmingly specific, describing three women: one famous, one semifamous and one a member of the retail class.”

A source told Page Six: “He was cheating on his wife with Kerry when they were filming [‘I Think I Love My Wife’] about him, ironically, having fantasies of cheating on his wife. That went on for a while, for like six months, and she found out. There’s no gray area.”

Buzz about the affair actually began around 2007, we hear, when Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow. But Rock reignited the rumor in the RS cover story on his “Total Blackout” world tour. “It’s the alimony tour. I’ve got to make some money first,” he told the mag. His divorce was finalized last year. A source close to Rock brushed off the routine as shtick, but admitted his marriage to Malaak was tumultuous.

“I take it as a joke when he says he cheated with a famous person. He even says he cheated with a member of Destiny’s Child, but not Beyoncé,” the source said. “He was friends with Kerry around that time. They did the movie together. He was also separated from Malaak around that time. They were off-and-on a lot during their marriage. It was a rocky situation.”

Washington’s ex Moscow was asked about the alleged affair in 2016 and reportedly responded, “No comment.” Washington is now happily married to Nnamdi Asomugha, and the couple has two kids, daughter Isabelle and son Caleb. Rock is currently dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, but said, “Would I ever get married again? Not if it would cure AIDS.” Reps for Rock and Washington did not comment.

Do you think there’s anything to this? Now that I’m thinking back, I remember some whispers around that movie, I Think I Love My Wife. But as I said, there were more rumors about Rock and Rosario Dawson. I don’t know much about Kerry’s personal life, whether it’s her marriage right now or her sexual history a decade ago. I want to believe that she would not even bother wasting six months of her life on a married man, but in 2007-ish, she would have been… 30-ish. Yeah. Old enough to know not to f–k a married man. As for Rock… who knows? He describes himself as a guy who believed he deserved to sleep with other women because he was the breadwinner. I’m glad Malaak has gotten a fresh start.

    I really hope this rumour isn’t true but her age wouldn’t mean a thing. It’s not a complicated argument. Don’t get involved with someone who is in a relationship. Pretty basic.

    Rock is really coming off as trash

    • BangersandMash says:

      “I really hope this rumour isn’t true”

      Iris… *loud sigh*…… Hollywood Leading men are being exposed left, right and centre.
      The Mighty are falling. My default now is … “Oh so he did it”. So yeah.

      Maybe Kerry is the famous one, and Rosario is the semi-famous one? I mean It was 2007… Chris Rock was touring all over, he was hot $h*t, Kerry hadn’t landed Scandal yet, so she was small in notoriety, she hadn’t met her husband etc. etc…. It was 10 years ago.
      I mean it wouldn’t be a stretch to think that something happened.
      Or maybe not… Chris 2007 was hot property… who knows… it could be with ANYONE.

      Either way, it’s not like this doesn’t exist in Hollywood, ladies are out here… Regardless of whether they are Halle Berry or as Chris says “Retail class” (*cough* Kardashian)… Ladies are FULLY AWARE of men’s statuses and are out here…. OUT HERE!!!!

      • Lama Bean says:

        My first thought when he said “famous person” was Kerry Washington. She may have only been semi-famous then, but she is famous now, and this is a recent comment. I absolutely believe it is her.

        I had never heard the rosario story, but I can get with that.

      • Marianne says:

        Its kind of funny because back then Rosario would have been the bigger name but now Kerry is the bigger name.

    • WhichWitch says:

      True trash. And I feel sorry for Megalyn Echikunwoke because I think she is intelligent and drop dead gorgeous to boot… she should know to avoid this mess!

    • Wanda says:

      There were also rumours about her and James McAvoy around same time and he was also a married man.

    • kibbles says:

      It’s tough for successful career oriented women. At the time Kerry was not as famous and she was in her early 30s. You will not believe the desperation I’ve seen successful female friends find themselves in and just want to have sex or crave attention from men. I had a friend who had an affair. I was extremely disappointed in her choice, and now she says she’d never do it again. But at the time she was working in the private sector and not going on successful dates. The first guy who gave her the attention she needed she jumped into bed with him. He happened to be married and she knew it. It happens. I’ve never done it and I don’t condone it. It just doesn’t surprise me.

    • V4Real says:

      Don’t forget Kerry did two movies with Chris. I think I love my wife was mentioned but she also played his fiancé in that movie he did with Anthony Hopkins (Bad Company) a few years before.

  2. Shelley says:

    I think anything is possible but I doubt you are going to get any type of response from Kerry. At the same time it puts the lesbian and bearding rumors where?
    Rosario Dawson stays undercover with her life when she wants too. I still haven’t seen any pictures of her daughter?

    • TTRR says:

      I think the bearding/lesbian rumors are fake. It seems as if it’s to throw people off of what is really going on.
      Even the “husband’s” family hasn’t seen the daughter. Now there’s another child who has yet to be seen.

      • Lee says:

        What do you think is going on? Seriously, I don’t get the conspiracies surrounding Kerry and her marraige, is it because no one has seen her kids? How is that a bad thing? Also the lesbian rumours where did those come from, wasn’t she in a 10 year relationship previously. Please shed light.

      • TTRR says:

        Yes, her kids not being seen plays a big role here. It’s no so much of her not posting pics on social media. It’s the fact she hasn’t been seen anywhere (kind of) nor her “husband”, with them. We (the public) only have staged photos from 3 years ago.
        I don’t want to come off crazy so I won’t go through a whole list of things that makes it obvious that she lying.
        I’ll just say, I’ve been following her for years, along with whole “marriage” announcement, and that there’s a whole lot of red flags. On the surface everything looks fine but if you watched her closely with her co-star vs her “husband”, it looks rather obvious.

      • KB says:

        I think part of it is no one even knew they were together and then it seemed like out of nowhere she was married and pregnant. Then they wouldn’t talk about it, so people just thought it was shady. That’s how I remember it, but I’ve never followed her closely.

        It seems to me like she’d be more open if she were trying to sell a lie, like Taylor Swift or Tom Cruise.

      • Dappadaph says:

        Kerry was seen with her husband at the 2017 White House Correspondence Dinner. Quit spreading your innuendo. And maybe she has seen what has happens to celebs who over share their lives.

      • Lee says:

        TTRR , no please go into details, it’s a gossip site after all. I find these stories about Kerry intriguing because I don’t get where they come from. As long as you don’t use blind gossip/ items as your source I’m good.

        I personally think it’s cool that she and her husband are so low key, but I can understand a bit I guess why people find it odd. I must say I find the pairing odd if anything.

      • TTRR says:

        KB, she’s not open because she will get caught in lies. She’s already said some odd things.

      • BonBon says:

        How would you know whether her husbands family has seen the kids?

      • TTRR says:

        BonBon, one his relatives was on Facebook in October when the announcement of the second baby came. She was asked if her family will get to see this baby (the second one). The young lady said, ‘we haven’t even met the first one’.

      • BonBon says:

        Do you have a link or screenshot of that TTRR?

      • TTRR says:

        Yeah I have a screen shot but I don’t know how to put it up.

      • Marianne says:

        I honestly don’t understand how not showing her kids means she secretly a lesbian. Just because there are some celebs out there that like to put their family life out there for the world to see, doesn’t mean everyone feels the same way.

    • TTRR says:

      Lee, they’re low key because it’s an arrangement. She’s not married to that man. It’s a coverup. It’s why their stories from their camps at the begining, were inconsistent. They weren’t on the same page. You can choose to believe that or not. I’m just giving you some of what I know. Her child is very light and bright. Quite the opposite from that dark leg a few years ago…

      • BonBon says:

        They were also seen just days ago at the Bronx childrens museum Gala (5/3/17)…

      • TTRR says:

        These are staged appearances. Along with the award shows etc…
        All this came after people started questioning where they were. Her camp has been on the internet since this charade started.

      • Ashley.Nate says:

        Tumblr is not a reliable source. There are a lot of unstable stans and people on there 😏

      • TTRR says:

        I know about Tumblr. But the pic I linked originally came from a photographer’s IG. That’s his face in the photo. This dude seen her kid but he’s not talking.

      • M.A.F. says:

        So who is covering for who? She for him? Him for her? Both?

        It still boggles me that Hollywood still does this arranged relationships.

    • TTRR says:

      Dappadaph, where are the photos of them together at the 2013 WHCD when they were suppose to be engaged? They both attended. Yet, they were never seen together nor did they attend any after parties at the same time.
      There is zero evidence that they were dating. We only have a planted video from 2014, from TMZ claiming it was 2010. Which came from her camp…Where was that video when the marriage news was announced? Everyone asked “where are they”.
      They were never seen anywhere prior. Which is one of many reasons why some had early suspicions. It can’t be because she or they are low key because, whomever KW has dated or rumored to be, she’s at least been pictured with them. Can’t find a single pre-2014 pic of her and this man though.

      • Merritt says:


        This is ridiculous. Some celebs keep their relationships and children very private. Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling, are a good example.

      • blogdis says:

        LOL Celebs really can’t win can they when they are public with thier relationship they are fame whores when not they are hiding something
        Who knows some of the rumors about Kerry could be true. But I also feel that sometimes when people don’t know your business then they will make it up
        before Kerry went mainstream she was involved in a very public relationship and very long engagement with David Moscow ( child star ) who apparently was dragging his feet on marrying her . She has given some interviews way back then gushing about him and the upcoming wedding and then crickets and the optics were not good especially since I guess he was white and more known than her at the time ? Dunno . She has publicly said she has been bitten by over sharing which is why she chose to the ultra private route maybe a bit of over correct but who knows

      • Ashley.Nate says:

        Some- a few celebrities keep their life very private, including their kids. People haven’t seen Joseph Gordon Levitt kid, and are surprised he’s having a second one. Same with Ryan Gosling, Benedict Cumberbatch, and now Oscar Isaac. It’s not a conspiracy. People are way to used to attention whoring celebs, and people feel entitled to their private lives. It’s the same thing in the work place. If you keep to yourself and don’t engage with others, people feel the need to make up things about you (usually negative).

      • OriginallyBlue says:

        Really? This is the theory you’re going with? Out of all options and possibilities. So Kerry was so worried about her image she found some​ guy she barely knew to not just fake a relationship for a few months, but a marriage and pretend to be the father of her children. She figured to do that, but at no point sat down and get the “story straight”. Also that would mean her husband is lying to all his family and friends. Or do they know the truth in which case why say they haven’t met the children?
        Honestly if the family member is discussing them on Facebook or any public forum it might be a good indication as to why they haven’t met the kids.

      • Bridget says:

        This is just such a weird thing to claim. How much time do you devote to this?

      • Luca76 says:

        All of the tumblr crazies want to believe that she had an affair with Tony Gowldyn and that he is the father of her kids. They want life to be a real episode of Scandal and they are just as unbalanced as many other more famous fan bases.

      • blogdis says:

        @ Bridget
        ” How much time do you devote to this ? ”
        LMAO Cackling way too much time it seems

    • Lee says:

      It’s clear TTRR , has been reading blind gossip. The one and only time I fell into the BI rabbit hole before I knew what that site was (I had to take a shower after I felt so dirty ) they had some stupid ridiculous story about her baby being Fitzgerald Grants aka Tony Goldwyn her very married co star. To me that tops the nonsense stories, how would Kerry pass of two children she supposedly had with her white co star as her husbands? why would he play along, why would his parents , how long could kerry keep this up, it would be so obvious. I mean 2 kids. Seriously. Just because she’s decided to keep her shit private must mean something sinister- please.

      • TTRR says:

        It’s not from blind gossip. Blind items came way after the fact.
        Kerry Washington fake marriage gossip started from N. Asomugha camp on urban blogs and sports blogs.

  3. Lexie says:

    I’d thought Rosario too, but this is believable. Older pics of Kerry just make me think how plastic she looks now.

  4. Lucy2 says:

    I hope it’s not true about Kerry.
    That’s kind of gross of Rock to bring the women into it again. If he chooses to talk about his own faults, fine, but now Kerry is being dragged into this?

    • TTRR says:

      She likely gave the okay. He’s kept it quiet for years.

      • KB says:

        Her career and profile has come a long way since 2007, I can’t imagine she’d ever give the okay for this.

  5. HadleyB says:

    Member of the retail class? Who does he think he is? Royalty? He could of just said non actress or something.

    • Danielle says:

      I’m not sure what he means by member of the retail class…

      • MrsPanda says:

        does it mean someone working in retail? what an entitled douche he is!

      • KB says:

        Makes me think he’s using the word retail to describe something that isn’t retail. If he’s literally talking about a girl working at a retail store then yes he’s a dbag.

      • shannon says:

        Maybe a leap, but does he mean hooker? Retail, like he paid for her?

    • angie says:

      This. Since when is “retail” a class of people? That’s a pretty demeaning way to describe someone. On the other hand, whoever she is she should have kept her hands off the married man, even if only to avoid having him demonstrate his contempt for her later by referring to her as retail, as though she were for sale.

    • BangersandMash says:

      I think what he was saying by retail class is certain ladies who are famous for being on instagram, or have cameras follow them around alot to show them doing a whole lot of nothing and starting drama with each other, then reunite as family members, and pushing plastic surgery as ‘workout’ and special tea, they live in Kardashia grove, Calabasas mostly.
      But, I don’t have a clue who it might be…

      • MrsPanda says:

        Ah yes maybe so, whoever she is, the poor girl! He seems to be bragging about how badly he has treated women 🙁

    • Trashaddict says:

      Thank you. I find this really odd, and I can’t figure out why it bothers me. He slept with three other women. Period.

    • Mimi says:

      By retail class, I think he simply meant someone who worked a regular 9-5 job. I wouldn’t read any more into it than that.

  6. S says:

    I think Rock is actually a fairly strong actor, and first really proved that in I Think I Love My Wife, which was a really interesting movie and not at all what I expected from Rock’s previous films and his inexplicable membership in the Adam Sandler posse.

    He does not seem like a particularly great human being though, given all that’s come out regarding his divorce. Both what he did, and how he’s handled, and continues to, handle it.

    The alimony tour. Ha, ha! How clever. How witty. How original. As is dating someone 20 years your junior and dishing about how easy and fun she is compared to his ex. Cliche much, Chris?

    What admiration I have for a man worth an estimated $70 million complaining about supporting his wife of 20 years — whom he eagerly admits to being regularly unfaithful to — the mother of his children. Not to mention refusing to even acknowledge a child that, while not his biologically, he’d raised since infancy. What a guy!

    • KB says:

      I always thought his comedy was smart, but after the Asian jokes at the Oscars and now this…I’m thinking maybe he’s not who I thought he was.

    • argonaut says:

      re: “alimony tour”
      He stole that from John Cleese anyway

  7. Louise177 says:

    Did Chris mean famous now or then? Back then Kerry was semi-famous. Also the women may not even be co-stars. That may be the obvious route but it could women he met at events. Frankly I don’t care and it really doesn’t even matter.

  8. Harlan Jodet says:

    Have I missed something? When I was growing up people were embarrassed and ashamed when they did something wrong but now they seem pretty proud of it and can’t wait to share all the sordid details. I just don’t get it.

    • Beth says:

      Times have definitely changed. I can’t believe when I hear people like him being proud of this. Who would want to hear him almost bragging by giving the details? Most likely not his wife and family. This guy is a pig.

  9. Elisa the I. says:

    “Would I ever get married again? Not if it would cure AIDS.”

    • Trashaddict says:

      I would get married again if it would cure AIDS!

    • CF98 says:

      That’s probably the only thing he said that I wouldn’t consider “offensive” I think most celebs shouldn’t bother being married. But if you do don’t do it multiple times(beyond 3) its just ridiculous at that point.

      • Elisa the I. says:

        I’m sure his teenage daughters will be very happy reading his comments. He comes across as totally self-absorbed.
        NB: I personally don’t believe in marriage at all.

  10. Mia4s says:

    I never thought much of Rock on a personal level so this just confirms my instincts there.

    Disappointed to hear that about Washington if true (I thought a bit more of her), but in fairness I doubt it’s something she’s proud of.

    • Original T.C. says:

      I’m not sure what to believe. Kerry Washington is the only famous Africa-American actress who you can name check and who worked with Chris Rock. Then again we are assuming the actress is Black, what if she is White?

      I feel like Kerry is so private that it’s easy to put her name in the mix. I remember for a long time in African-American gossip circles they claimed Kerry was gay and that she’s in an arranged marriage with her husband. I’m not sure if it is because Kerry dated white men back then and thus turned down some hot Black actor which hurt his ego and started rumors. Lots of unknowns.

  11. kri says:

    Wasn’t it Chris who said “Men are only as faithful as their options”? Something like that. He’s been telling on himself for years. This is nothing new.And it is one of the most honest quotes of all time. Sad,but true. And that doesn’t just go for celebs,either.

    • KB says:

      SOME men are only as faithful as their options. Chris is just one of those men. It makes him feel better to front like it’s all men and not just those of low character.

      • WhichWitch says:

        Yep, and him saying that like it’s a fact just encourages some men to use it as an excuse/reason why they want to share their penises with everyone.

    • CF98 says:

      Yeah I thought he was accurate whether people want to believe it or not.

  12. RussianBlueCat says:

    Hmmm, I don’t know how I would feel if my father was telling the world about him cheating on my mother throughout their marriage. Some things are better kept private

  13. Artemis says:

    Not surprising. There were loads of rumours circa 2007-2009 and his wife didn’t want him to work with Washington again (Rock and Washington worked on 2 films together) so yeah, 99% true.

    I don’t know why Kerry seems to have an amazing reputation, she’s a good actress but I would never hold out ‘hope’ people aren’t participating into the usual Hollywood shenanigans (drugs, cheating, backstabbing). That world is brutal.

    I definitely expect it from men like Rock whose comedy and general demeanor was a dead giveaway that he ain’t shit but I think when women cultivate/have a ‘classy’ rep, people are shocked to find out the dirty details of their private life and it usually ain’t shit either.

    • Bridget says:

      I thought this was common knowledge too.

    • QueenB says:

      “I think when women cultivate/have a ‘classy’ rep, people are shocked to find out the dirty details of their private life and it usually ain’t shit either. ” Taylor Swift comes to mind.

      Im always wondering what Tom Hanks, Matt Damon (apart from being ignorant), Emma Watson and the like are all hiding. If you have to tell us how nice and classy you are Im going to assume you have a dead nun in your basement.

      • oliphant says:

        I’d be surprised if emma watson had the acting ability to hide anything

      • Artemis says:

        I think some stuff must be in regards to sexuality/sexual preference. Lots of rumours about bisexual men (George Clooney, I think Matt Damon too but not sure) and kinky stuff that would be ’embarrassing’ if the public found out. Honestly they’re just humans but the audience, media and they themselves cultivate the image that they are superior and more resilient and thus more enviable than the average folk so silly stuff like bisexuality would be a huge deal as it would just confirm they are human. And we cannot have that. I think that’s what made women like Angelina Jolie and Courtney Love so special, they were so flawed and human for the world to see. It’s so rare and so fascinating.

      • Jessica says:

        What do you mean when you say hiding? Everyone has dirty laundry (at diff levels of course) but it doesn’t make sense to air everything to the public. That’s not hiding some scandalous secret, it’s just common sense.

  14. Hm says:

    I have no idea why people idolize Kerry Washington, she gets the untouchable good girl treatment and near-reverence appropriately given to Viola. She’s not a great actress, she’s full of plastic, she has an unbelievably stuck-up vibe in person IMO.

    If this is true, I would be mad if I were Rosario — or even Kristen Stewart, who was dragged like crazy and was much younger than Kerry.

    • Zuzus Girl says:

      Agree with all you said.

    • Kiki says:

      I happen to agree with you HM. I am not a huge fan of Kerry Washington, but I hope that it is not true, but who knows MAYBE?

      I never dragged Kristen Stewart into the mud like the rest because I have an excuse for her is that she is young and trying to figure out who she was at time. Now Kristen Stewart is comfortable with who is she now. I have not hear or seen Rosario Dawson in years on screen, but RD looks like someone who doesn’t give a F*** what people think, if she has done wrong, those are a few t of the things like in people.

      P.S Please don’t not put Kerry Washington in the same category as Viola Davis. Viola Davis is a master of her craft,

      • gwen says:

        Rosario Dawson is in that new movie, Unforgettable with Kathryn Heigl. Check her IMDB page, she’s been pretty active.

    • sanders says:

      I don’t think she can act and it’s painful to watch Scandal when she is in scenes, though I don’t know if it’s the direction. There is a funny parody of Scandal on “Dear White People”.
      I do like how she publicly speaks out against racism and sexism. Then again, I think so much of what hollywood actors and actresses do is contrived and about branding. This rumour has a negative impact on her brand. Chris would know that (if it’s true) and he’s throwing all sorts of women under the bus to earn more money. Gross.

    • Alp says:

      I’ve literally never heard of a Rosario Dawson scandal? Although, tbf, I’ve only heard of her through Marvel things and people generally worship everyone involved there..

  15. Zuzus Girl says:

    “They were off-and-on a lot during their marriage. It was a rocky situation.” It was a rocky, on and off situation because he couldn’t keep his dick in his pants. Why get married at all?

  16. LAK says:

    I guess that’s why Rock’s why was said to object to his working with Wahington.

  17. Merritt says:

    I see no point in Rock or Page Six digging up old gossip. And I see no point in dragging someone when things may not be true. At least David Moscow is refusing to comment.

    • Des says:

      Again, it’s Page Six reporting with a scoop literally no one else has on a black celebrity who has been outspoken about her support for progressive causes. Apart from the rumor that Rock’s wife “thought” Washington might be the woman, there’s been nothing for years and now all of a sudden there are confirmations?

      I”m giving this the side eye.

  18. Squiggisbig says:

    I could believe this because of the longevity of the rumors and the fact that his friend made a point to say that Rock and his wife were off and on during that time which seems a little suspicious to mention for the first time in context. Also suspicious as her relationship with David Moscow seemed to fall apart around the same time.

    I’m only kind of surprised because Kerry seems very friendly with Georgina Chaoman and HArvey Weinstein. And you are the company you keep!

  19. nemera34 says:

    LMAO at how time changes perceptions..
    Will Kerry be branded a Homewrecker and put on the cover of countless magazines for years to come. How different these comments are from what I have seen about other actresses; even when the proof of so called cheating was even less than this.

  20. Kristen says:

    Chris Rock’s quotes in these last two articles really bug me. He’s not coming off well at all, to women probably, but he’s almost cloaking his disdain for women in brutal honesty as if that somehow excuses it. It doesn’t. What he’s essentially admitting to here is that he cannot commit to a woman, that he cannot commit to a marriage, that he wants to answer to no one but himself and his own sexual desires. But the underlying message he’s sending is that it’s the women who are at fault for having these expectations in the first place, for wanting his time and his total commitment. He’s a cliche. There are so many men out there (my husband is one) who have the emotional maturity to stay in long-term committed relationships and they don’t do it begrudgingly, or because society tells them they should. They do it because they actually want it. They love being family men and having children and everything that goes along with it. Not all men make decisions with their penises.

    I think I’m done with this guy after the last few posts about him. He just grosses me out.

      Yeah I used to love his comedy, but now…? I don’t know man. I can’t get behind this, and I can’t understand why any woman in her right mind would date him after everything he’s said lately!

    • sanders says:

      Kristen, I agree completely with your comment. There are men who actually like family life and what a shit head for trying to normalize his cheating by essentializing male behaviour. Your analysis about Chris is accurate. He has no respect or value for women beyond what they can do for him.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if he cheated with both Kerry and Roasario. Also really scummy how he is using all the women in his life to prop up his career. I get that comedians talk about their relationships but I really get turned off when male comedians go on and on, in this negative and cliched way, about their wives/ex-wives. It’s misogynistic, boring and unoriginal.

      The only thing I liked that he did was Everybody Loves Chris. That was such a sweet depiction of his life as an adolescent/teen boy.

    • Deering says:

      If this “alimony” tour/publicity run was supposed to reignite his career, it seems to be having the opposite effect. His misogyny is taking over his act–and he’s not being honest with himself. Richard Pryor was merciless about his own failings, which made him an even greater comedian. Rock is majorly in denial.

    Page Six is part of the right wing Post. Just saying.

    • blogdis says:

      Exactly it’s not like they wouldn’t have motivation to focus on or exaggerate the alleged failings of people like Kerry Washington and Jesse Williams who are both educated , articulate and outspoken against racism , sexism and the GOP

    • Goldie says:

      I definitely don’t take Page Six seriously, but to be fair, the rumors were reported in the (liberal) NY Daily News a decade ago. The rumors about the affair aren’t new. They’re just recirculating now, because of Rock’s RS interview.

  22. Ashley.Nate says:

    Chris Rock has always been problematic and messy, I dunno why people are acting surprised by his big mouth behaviour

    • PlaidSheets says:

      So much this. His comedy always struck me was deeply misogynistic and angry. These comments coming from him are not surprising.

  23. Alp says:

    I feel like this definitely true regarding how they’re commenting on this story (“No comment.” lol). And if it is, why Kerry? He’s such misogynist trash, is really explicit about it and always have been. Why do woman choose to be with this asshole? (slightly OT: but also @Kendall who is dating ASAP. ASAP with a history of domestic violence and has a whole posse of men who also have domestic violence records. Why??)

  24. Bridget says:

    I thought this was common knowledge. This was right after/around the first time he tried to divorce Malaak before they hit their 10 year mark.

  25. Lightpurple says:

    Will her fans turn against her now that she’s the other woman in real life not just on tv?

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Her fans are going to abandon her over 10 year old rumours and gossip?
      It will pass. He stayed with his wife, he cheated on her multiple times (I think the 3 women are just ones that lasted a bit of time, he probably can’t​ count how many one night stands he’s had) and he comes across as an asshole.

    • TTRR says:

      Lightpurple, maybe in the future when more obvious stuff comes to the light.

  26. Jenn says:

    I remember Rock and his wife going on Oprah when their oldest was a baby and the wife seemed sweet and was gorgeous and Rock seemed sorta grumpy even back then. I remember feeling vaguely bad for his wife.

    His whole “give me the big piece of chicken” thing always gave me chills because my (abusive) Dad was like that.

    All that said, I will always appreciate Rock for being one of the only celebrities to say anything against Roman Polanski (him, Jewel and Luc Besson).

    • fiorucci says:

      Well from what I’ve heard and what’s said in this very thread it doesn’t seem like he’s trying to be likeable! But yeah anyone standing up against rape culture and Polanski is appreciated. Seems like his main problematic statements are all related to his relationships with women/his spouse/ girlfriend , otherwise he’s ok. Haven’t found him that funny for a while though EXCEPT his story about meeting mrs Obama that was cute

  27. Jessica says:

    This is black women slander at its finest. I don’t believe it for a second.

  28. HK9 says:

    Chris cheated on his wife and knew what he was doing when he did it. Who he did it with doesn’t matter. The result is the same. Chris is responsible for his own behaviour and he homewrecked his own marriage, end of story.
