Chris Rock is single and ready to mingle.
Just a few months after ending his four year relationship with actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, Rock and a certain British actress were spotted having lunch in Malibu.
The actress in question is Carmen Ejogo. You may recall she played Addie Monroe in Self-Made and Coretta Scott King in Selma.
Rock, 55, wore a white Champion T-shirt and green khaki pants as he walked side-by-side with Ejogo, 46, who wore a V-neck T-shirt and green printed pants.
This is the second time the duo have been seen together. Back in September the pair were first spotted on a dinner date in New York City’s West Village. The two were seen laughing and talking while leaning closely into each other, in photos obtained by the Daily Mail.
Ejogo was previously married to Westworld actor Jeffrey Wright from 2000-2014, as well as musician Tricky. Rock split from his ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock in 2016 after 20 years together.
From the looks of things the duo are more than just friends, but time will tell.
In September, Rock revealed he had been diagnosed with nonverbal learning disorder (NVLD), which means he faces challenges interpreting nonverbal signals in social situations. The comedian told The Hollywood Reporter the disorder is “not great for one-on-one relationships” but is “really great for writing jokes.”
“I’d always just chalked it up to being famous,” Rock said. “Any time someone would respond to me in a negative way, I’d think, ‘Whatever, they’re responding to something that has to do with who they think I am.’ Now, I’m realizing it was me. A lot of it was me.”
The star said he now commits to seven hours of therapy a week, where he’s also working on processing childhood traumas.
