Chris Rock is opening up about his failed marriage in a new interview with Rolling Stone.
He split from Malaak Compton-Rock split in 2014 after 18-years of marriage and finalized their divorce in 2016.
“Getting divorced, you have to f—king start over,” he said. “You get to reset. It’s not a breakdown, but something in your life broke down.”
One way he managed to reset was by heading out on his first world tour in nine years, which he jokingly refers to as his “alimony tour,” in February.
“I asked myself, ‘Do I want to be angry for a year?’ It’s not a cool place to be. It’s not healthy,” he shared.
Chris Rock also admitted to cheating on his then-wife with three women, one of whom is famous, he said.
“I was a piece of s—t,” he said, adding that he felt he could cheat since he was the famous breadwinner in the family.
“That’s bulls—t,” he admitted. “That actually goes the other way. My faults are magnified. Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down.”
He also said “it’s not fair” for him to speak poorly of his ex-wife in public because “I have a mic, she doesn’t.”
