Thanks to his wildly successful standup career and the numerous ventures he's been able to spin off it, Chris Rock has rubbed elbows with Hollywood's elite for most of the last two decades. But if recent reports are to be believed, finding himself amongst A-list stars may have gotten Rock in a bit of trouble in his former marriage.
Page Six says Rock reportedly cheated on his ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, with Scandal actress Kerry Washington. Rock and Washington previously starred together in the ironically-titled film, I Think I Love My Wife, a movie about Rock's character fantasizing about cheating on his wife. Page Six's sources claim those fantasies came to fruition, and Rock's ex-wife reportedly found out about the affair after six months of cheating.
Though Rock and Washington have not yet commented on the rumors, Rock has already admitted to infidelities during his marriage. Rolling Stone trailed him for a recent cover story, and Rock openly discussed his prior flings during a set at the Comedy Cellar in New York City. The comedian admitted to three different affairs—including one to a famous woman—and called himself, "a piece of shit."
But he doesn't appear too interested in testing the marriage waters again anytime soon. Rock closed a recent stand-up set by answering a self-posed question about committing to marry another person down the line. "Not if it would cure AIDS," he said.
