Thanks to Mo’Nique and Amy Schumer, we knew even before the announcement that Chris Rock had a comedy special airing on Netflix. And he got paid for it too. $40 million to be exact. But that’s not what we’re here to talk about.
Yesterday was the release date. And in promotion of the show, Netflix teased some of the moments from the special titled Tamborine.
In one of the more introspective moments on the show, Rock takes responsibility for the ending of his marriage with his wife of 16 years, Malaak Compton.
“It’s my fault because I’m a fucking asshole. I didn’t listen, I wasn’t kind. I just thought I was the shit, man.”
Rock continues saying he “brought this shit on myself. Nobody told me to go ho up.” The comedian admitted to sleeping with three different women while on the road.
He also shared the effect his behavior had on his wife.
“It’s fucked up. When guys cheat, it’s like we want something new. But then you know what happens? Your woman finds out, and now she’s new. She is never the same again. So now you have new, but you have a bad new.”
Finally, Rock ended the bit with a bit of advice. “You don’t wanna get divorced. You got somebody you love, hold tight. Commit.”
Since his divorce, Rock has been linked to actress Megalyn Echikunwoke. The two started dating in 2016.
