Chris Rocks admits to ruining marriage by cheating Published By Marriska Fernandes on Feb 15, 2018

Chris RockChris Rock has come clean in his new Netflix stand-up special titled Chris Rock: Tambourine, in which reveals he cheated on his wife numerous times while on tour.

The comedian, 53, was divorced from his wife Malaak Compton in 2016, after 16 years. For this, he calls himself an "a**hole" and admitted that just because he earned a lot of money, he thought he could do whatever he wanted.

He revealed: "It’s my fault because I’m a f**king a**hole. I didn’t listen. I wasn’t kind. I had an attitude. I thought, ‘I pay for everything, I can do what I want.’ That s**t don’t f**king work. I just thought I was the s**t. I didn’t play the tambourine."

He gets brutally honest and reveals his addiction to porn. "I was not a good husband. I was f**ked-up. I was addicted to porn. I know, billion-dollar industry, just me, right? I was addicted to porn and, you know, I was 15 minutes late everywhere. When you watch too much porn, you know what happens? Here’s what happens. You become sexually autistic. You develop sexual autism. You have a hard time with eye contact and verbal cues."

He admits that he has learned his lesson: "Some of these lessons you’ve just got to learn. Like, I brought this s**t on myself. Nobody told me to go ho up. I brought this s**t on myself, and you’ve got to learn some lessons, some man lessons."

    Sounds like his stand up is his therapy.

    My husband is also addicted to porn; however, see nothing wrong with it because he contends it is not child porn. It is disgusting to me as he watches it almost 24/7. He is 80 years old & has been doing it for years. It turns me off 100%.

    Nice to admit it now. Better late than never? I am lucky that the man I have seen for ten years, does not care for porn. Nice! A rare not against it, but I was surprised from a W5 episode? That people who over porn, I suppose, can have trouble with relationships and sex. And, like the person mentioned here as a comment. I could see a distorted view, but I did not think of the very distorted view, as impotent, sort of.

    Porn destroys so many relationships. Men start going to it because they don’t have to interact with another person. Eventually most of their sex life is watching porn instead of being with someone. They deceive their mate to make them think something is wrong with them so it’s not their fault they turn to self satisfying sex. Their partner suffers greatly from the deceit and lies they tell them. Usually the partner is clueless to why their relationship isn’t working.
