It Would Appear That Chris Rock And Lake Bell Might Be Dating

July 5, 2022 / Posted by:

Chris Rock made headlines this weekend after he was seen sitting at a table with an actress notable enough to have people wondering, “What’s going on THERE, I wonder.” And of course, the drama-loving gossip in me wishes that I could report that the actress was Jada Pinkett Smith, and the table was the titular Red Table. But that’s not the case here. It’s actually just a bit more random, in that Chris Rock has not been sharing headline-worthy anecdotes about that slap, but sharing food with actress Lake Bell.

Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock called it quits on their 18-year-long marriage back in 2014, and ever since then, Chris Rock hasn’t exactly been the type to pop up on UsWeekly covers featuring headlines screaming about “FINDING LOVE AGAIN” or other such celebrity-adjacent nonsense that comes at the expense of a public rebound. A few years after his divorce, he dated actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, but they split up after four years in 2020. That brings us to Chris Rock’s current dating situation, and TMZ is reporting that 57-year-old Chris has been hooked up with 43-year-old Lake for the past little while.

Chris Rock isn’t hiding his relationship with Lake Bell any longer – the duo is out and about in L.A. for all to see … and we gotta say, they look pretty good together!

The comedian and actress were hitting the town this weekend, popping up at Giorgio Baldi together in Santa Monica where they chowed down. And on Sunday, the couple grabbed a bite at Coast Restaurant in the same neighborhood … dining with just the two of them.

TMZ notes that the two have been laying pretty low, but that they haven’t been hiding the fact that they’re together. And while we’re still waiting on that UsWeekly cover, we have a few paparazzi pictures of Chris and Lake in various states of meal eating, like during, and the always-popular prior to.

Lake has plenty in common with Chris. For example, they’re both famous, they both work in Hollywood, they both have kids, and they both have been divorced. Lake married tattoo artist Scott Campbell in 2013, and they split up in 2020. And now Lake and Chris are together, which means we can officially set the clock to countdown how long it takes before the “Not everybody hates Chris!” jokes become tired and stale. Essentially, both Chris and Lake were married to normal-ish people, and dating a high-profile celebrity comes with a unique set of benefits. For example, Chris already hoisted and waved his own giant ed flag when he admitted that he thought he could cheat on his wife because he was rich. I hope Lake uses that to her advantage every time they go out for dinner. “I don’t know about a free pass on cheating, but I do know all the dollars in your bank account tell me you’re rich enough to be paying for this meal.”
