Chris Rock is a living legend, and like many men who have had that status conferred upon them, Rock seems to have a bit of trouble in the fidelity department.
Refreshingly, however, he's not blaming his inability to keep it in his pants on a sex addiction or the pressures of fame.
In 2014, Rock and Malaak Compton-Rock divorced after 19 years of marriage.
The split was far from amicable, but in a change of pace from the usual celebrity breakup, Rock actually admitted fault and confessed to being unfaithful to Compton.
The comedian recently gave a stunningly candid interview to Rolling Stone in which he went into great detail about his infidelities.
“I was a piece of s--t," Rock bluntly told the mag.
The writer of the piece goes on to describe Rock's shocking confessions thusly:
"He segues into his infidelities and gets disarmingly specific, describing three women: one famous, one semifamous and one a member of the retail class.”
Naturally, that description has prompted a flurry of speculation with regard to the identity of the famous woman.
Now, Page Six is claiming the cat is out of the bag, and Rock's A-list side-piece has been identified as Scandal actress Kerry Washington:
"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," a source tells the tabloid.
"That went on for a while, for like six months, and she found out. There’s no gray area.”
The revelation is especially scandalous (no pun intended), as Washington was engaged to actor David Moscow at the time of the alleged affair.
Rock's team is already doing damage control and brushing off the confession as "joke":
“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,” says a source close to the comic.
“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.”
As for his romantic future, Rock says there's little doubt about his marital prospects:
“Would I ever get married again? Not if it would cure AIDS.”
Needless to say, his divorce hasn't cost him his sense of humor.
