Chris Rock‘s outrageous jokes aren’t the only thing he’s made headlines for in the past. The comedian, 58, has been known to date a star or two since splitting from his ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, in 2014. The former pair were married for almost 19 years and share two daughters, Lola, 21, and Zahra, 19. Following their divorce, Rock tried the single life and got back out on the dating scene, which he’s been candid about in some of his recent stand-up specials.
In “Selective Outrage,” released on Netflix in March, Rock said, “Here’s the crazy thing. You don’t even realize all the amazing little things a woman does for you ’til you don’t have one.” He also shared that he was single and added that “trying to f*cking date is hard.” “‘Cause on one hand, you know, I’m loving. I want a real relationship. I want a Sunday kind of love,” he said, adding frankly, “And on the other hand, I’m just a hoe.”
In true jokester fashion, Rock also shared, “I’m trying to date women my age, which is 10 to 15 years younger than me.”
While some of Rock’s romances have been low-key, one of his advances just recently came to light. According to Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Worthy” memoir, the comedian once asked her out after hearing divorce rumors about her and longtime husband Will Smith. “Once he found out I wasn’t divorced, he apologized profusely, and life went on,” she wrote.
