Chris Rock admits he wasn’t a good husband to his ex-wife

Looking back on his divorce in 2014, Chris Rock can admit now that he wasn’t a good husband to his former wife.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Rock opened up about the split from his wife of 18 years, Malaak Compton-Rock.

“I wasn’t a good husband a lot of the times,” Rock said, both during the interview and on the stage during his stand-up comedy set. “I was a piece of s***.”

He explained that he thought he could get away it because he was famous and because he was the breadwinner, describing that mentality as “bulls***.”

“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 … Getting divorced, you have to f—ing start over. You get to reset. It’s not a breakdown, but something in your life broke down,” Rock said.

The comedian added that he has been careful not to reveal too much about the divorce, though he has been open about it, because he has a much bigger platform to air his grievances than his ex-wife, and he doesn’t want to drown her out.

“It’s not fair — I have a mic, she doesn’t,” he said. “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.”
