Chris rock on dating who is vanessa williams dating 2016
Chris Rock is currently dating Megalyn Echikunwoke.
He has been in five celebrity relationships averaging approximately 4.8 years each.
Rock, 53, recalled the embarrassing episode in his latest stand-up special, Chris Rock: Tamborine, which began streaming on Netflix earlier this week.‘After my divorce was final, I was at a party and I saw Rihanna,’ Rock said on stage during filming of his first new comedy special since 2008's Kill the Messenger.‘I was like, “OK, let’s start this again. ’‘Rihanna looked at me like I was one of her aunts,’ Rock said.‘She didn’t even register me as a d***-carrying member of society.‘Like, I would have had an easier time f***ing Aretha Franklin.’According to Rock, who divorced in August 2016, the encounter with Rihanna, 29, would have occurred months after the Saturday Night Live alum joked about ‘getting into’ the singer’s ‘panties.’Rock was the host of the Academy Awards in February 2016, a ceremony that was held even as social media users were outraged over the lack of minority nominees and circulated the hashtag #Oscars So White.
During his opening monologue, Rock noted that Jada Pinkett Smith was among a number of black Hollywood stars who boycotted the ceremonies.‘Jada said she's not coming,’ Rock said.
