A messy rumor in Black Hollywood has been unearthed and it involves a well-known comedian and an A-list actress.
Page Six, the official gossip column of the New York Post reported on Saturday (May 6th) that an unnamed source gave an interview dishing the dirt on Chris Rock (pictured left). The source claimed Scandal star Kerry Washington (pictured right) slept with Rock while he was still married to his ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock.
Rock already came clean in a recent comedy routine that Rolling Stone Magazine reported on for its latest cover story. “I was a piece of sh*t,” Rock said about himself on stage while engaging in a brutally honest stand-up comedy performance.
Though he wouldn’t say exactly who he was talking about, the CB4 star claimed to have slept with three women during the time he was married to his ex-wife. However, the unnamed, tea-spilling source that recently talked to Page Six claims to know who at least one of Rock’s mistresses was.
“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,” the source said in their exclusive interview.
Word started circulating about Washington and Rock fooling around in 2007. At that time, Washington was supposedly engaged to actor David Moscow.
“Rock 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,” the source also said.
When Page Six reached out to Rock and Washington after their unnamed source conducted the juicy interview, neither one of their representatives responded.
