Megalyn Echikunwoke: Did Chris Rock Cheat On His Wife?

What else could have prompted the 55-year-old comedian to end his 20-year marriage to ex wife Malaak Compton than the For The People actress? The actress’s appearances at the Hampton’s 2016 Party, when she flashed what appeared to be a diamond ring, suggested she was engaged to her comedian boyfriend. The finalization of his divorce from his wife a day later seemed to solidify their friendship.

This could just be a coincidence, but Megalyn was accused of getting in the way of the comedian and his wife.

Megalyn Echikunwoke Will Not Marry Chris Rock

Despite the fact that the actress and her 18-year-old partner made their relationship public in February 2016, the comedian’s gesture enchanted the actress in 2015. The comedian’s sharp sense of humor might be enough to keep her happy for the rest of her life.

She revealed the truth about the supposed engagement ring to PEOPLE in September 2016, saying:

Certainly not. It’s a genuine pearl. It’s certainly not a diamond. However, given the actress has stated her unbelief in marriage vows, it may take a long time for the couple to take their relationship to the next level. Despite not getting married, she believed there was more to the couple’s relationship. She summed up her feelings on marriage by saying:

Marriage is not something she strongly believes in

Despite this, the actress considered herself fortunate to have met a great, dreamy man while still acknowledging that there was more to life than being married. She made it clear that she was not implying that her relationship with Chris Rock was in trouble when she finished the chat by saying, ‘I have a man I love, and that’s all I need.’

She is blessed with great fan affection and popularity, as well as a witty and loving partner to make her laugh, two years after establishing a formal relationship with Chris Rock. What else could she possibly want?
