Chris Rock and Lake Bell’s Romance History!
Hollywood’s hottest comedy duo, Chris Rock and Lake Bell, were said to be dating in the summer of 2022.
The South Carolinian and Harley Quinn star were originally associated in June of 2022 after they were both spotted at a St. Louis Cardinals game. Fans saw the couple watching the game from box seats and spent most of the game standing together, even though there was no public expression of affection.
After the New York native and the Saturday Night Live alum had dinner together on Independence Day in Santa Monica, California, rumors began to circulate that the two were dating. According to TMZ photographs, the pair had brunch together on the coast the following day.
Us Weekly reported two days later that the two were dating, with an insider telling the publication, “Chris has been in a great happy mood” since “dating and spending his downtime with Lake Bell.”
A source close to the couple said at the time, “They have similar personalities, and they just laugh a lot when they’re together.”
After only a few weeks, Rock and Bell were spotted once more, this time on a yacht in Korcula, Croatia. Both comedians sat on sun loungers, listening to music on their headphones, and looked peaceful while staying on separate ends of the boat to avoid being photographed.
The Everybody Hates Chris star made news in March as a presenter at the 94th Academy Awards, thus the budding romance didn’t happen until after the ceremony. Rock had made a joke about Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, which caused the Fresh Prince star to come out on stage and slap him.
Smith expressed regret for his behavior and was given a 10-year suspension from attending any Oscars-related functions. Though initially shaken by the experience, the In Living Color star has since moved on.
“Chris is in a much better mindset than where he was a few months ago,” a source told Us at the time his relationship with Bell was made public.
Rock had been married once before, in 1996, to Malaak Compton-Rock. After 20 years of marriage, they finally split up in April 2016.
The Madagascar starlet and her spouse of seven years, Scott Campbell, filed for divorce in 2020. While they didn’t make the news public until November of that year, the couple had already been living apart for two months.
