In a stand-up, Chris Rock admittedly said that he cheated on his ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, with three women, one of which was a big star. Now sources are saying that big star was Kerry Washington. Talk about a scandal!
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.”
This would not be the first time rumors of Chris Rock and Kerry Washington surfaced. There was a lot of buzz around the rumor mill surrounding this alleged affair in 2007.
A source close to rock admits that although Rock’s relationship with his wife was tumultuous, you shouldn’t take the comedy routine too serious.
“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.”
At the time of the alleged affair, Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow. When asked about the alleged affair in 2016, Moscow simply said, “no comment.”
Kerry Washington is now happily married with two children. Chris Rock, on the other hand, says he will never marry again. He is currently dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke.
