On Monday, Dec. 25, photos of Chris Rock and Amber Rose together hit the Internet as they were spotted in New York City.
Rock, 58, known for his roles in Grown Ups and Madagascar, and Rose, 40, famed for her romantic history with Kanye West and her career as a model, were photographed together, sharing smiles and animated conversation. The pair was spotted stopping on a street corner, with Rock appearing to amuse Rose.
Rose kept it casual in sweatpants, a leather jacket, and a hoodie, and a Black snakeskin Birkin bag. The comedian went for a black and blue ensemble with cargo pants, a plaid shirt, a jacket, and a blue hat.
Despite their apparent camaraderie, there were no public displays of affection, leaving fans and onlookers curious about the nature of their relationship.
After divorcing his wife of 18 years, Malaak Compton-Rock, in 2016, Rock has been open about his infidelities during his marriage, calling himself “a piece of s**t” for putting his ex-wife through so much. He told Rolling Stone in 2017 that he thought he could get away with such bad behavior because he was rich and famous. “That actually goes the other way,” he explained. “My faults are magnified. Your significant other, if they really love you, has a high opinion of you. And you let them down.”
Rose has had a number high-profile relationships, including Kanye West, Machine Gun Kelly, 21 Savage, Odell Beckham Jr., and Wiz Khalifa, whom she was briefly married to. Her most recent public relationship was with Alexander "AE" Edwards, ending in 2021 amidst accusations of infidelity.
In a podcast interview earlier this year, she declared, “I want to be single for the rest of my life,” expressing contentment with her independence and a desire to focus on herself and her children.
