Chris Rock's Rihanna Snub Helped Him Snag a Younger Woman [VIDEO]


Chris Rock’s Netflix comedy special Tamborine was a huge hit with fans. During the special, the veteran funnyman revealed that he once tried to holler at Rihanna and got turned down.

In an interview with TMZ, Rock’s younger brother Jordan believes that RiRi snubbing his brother inspired the comedian to seek out a younger woman.

Jordan reveals that the Rock men (Chris, Tony, Kenny and Jordan, himself) have no limits when it comes to shooting their shot with the ladies – young or old. Although Rock failed to get Rihanna's attention, the upside is that he was able to snag his current girlfriend, actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, who is 19 years younger than him.

Rock is 53, while Echikunwoke is 34. But as Jordan points out, Rock seems to be in a better mood because their age difference. Rock is smiling more, his face is clearer and he looks much healthier. Rock and Echikunwoke were recently spotted watching the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday night (Feb. 18).

In Rock's new stand-up special, he also talked about police brutality, getting his children ready for Trump and fered a history lesson (watch below).
