In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the legendary comedian opened up about his infidelity. He admitted that he thought he would be able to get away with cheating because he was the breadwinner. He spoke quite openly about his failed marriage with Malaak Compton-Rock in the interview.
“Getting divorced, you have to f–king start over. You get to reset. It’s not a breakdown, but something in your life broke down,” the comedian said. Chris used to blame his ex-wife for the failed marriage earlier, but he now takes full responsibility for their breakup.
In the interview, he talked about how he thought it was okay for him to cheat on his wife because he made all the money. However, he admitted that this isn’t the case at all. “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,” Rock said.
Chris also revealed that he doesn’t want to talk about his divorce on stage anymore. He admitted that he doesn’t feel good about bashing his ex when she doesn’t have a platform to defend herself. “I have a mic, she doesn’t. God forbid people are bugging her in the supermarket. That’s not cool. I’m going to have to see her at weddings and graduations,” he noted.
