Chris Rock may be in a relationship, but he wasn't thinking about that when he snapped photos with Rihanna this week! The beauty was one of many A-listers who headed to his Total Blackout tour in New York and the comedian was sure to capture the moment, even teasing that she was his girlfriend! Sorry, Megalyn Echikunwoke.
Chris wrote as a caption, "New couple alert Rihanna in the House. Total blackout tour NY night 1 . 3 more to go," while super close to the singer. Rihanna stunned as she went makeup-free with the exception of bold blue lipstick. She wore huge hoop earrings and a Celine shirt paired with a very vibrant coat.
Lots of commenters were thrilled for Chris, with one saying, "We all know how much u love @badgalriri @chrisrock . Nice pic of u 2!"
In a standup he did earlier this year, Chris talked about how much he likes Rihanna, and said that he wanted to date her after his divorce but she wouldn't give him the time of day. He and Malaak Compton split in 2014.
And at the Oscars in 2016, while hosting, Chris cracked a joke about #OscarsSoWhite, saying, "Jada said she's not coming. Isn't she on a TV show? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties. I wasn't invited."
And we doubt he ever will be. Regardless, both he and Rih Rih are in relationships now, as Rihanna has quietly been dating billionaire Hassan Jameel for months.
