Did Chris Rock Cheat on his Wife With Kerry Washington?
In a just released Rolling Stone cover story, Chris Rock candidly admitted that he cheated on his now ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock. Rumor has it, Rock had affairs with three different women, including a big-name star.
Welp. According to New York Post's Page Six, that “big name star” is purportedly none other than Scandal actress Kerry Washington. An insider told the newspaper that Rock allegedly cheated on his wife with Washington during the filming of I Think I Love My Wife, which, ironically, is about a married man who has fantasies about cheating on his wife. “That went on for a while, for like six months, and she (Malaak) found out,” said the source. “There’s no gray area.”
However, a source in Rock’s camp said the rumor is not true. Although the comedian’s marriage was on shaky grounds during filming, he never pursue Washington romantically. “He was friends with Kerry around that time. They did the movie together,” said the source. “He was also separated from Malaak around that time. They were off-and-on a lot during their marriage. It was a rocky situation.”
Interestingly, Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow during the filming of the movie in 2007. So if the rumors are true, there was some double two-timing going on between Rock and Washington.
In any case, Washington is now happily married to Nnamdi Asomugha, and the couple has two kids, daughter Isabelle and son Caleb. Meanwhile, Rock is currently dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke.
Reps for both Chris Rock and Kerry Washington had no comment on the matter.
However, fans on Twitter had plenty to say about the Page Six report. Check it out below.
