Chris Rock may have already moved on from his nasty divorce with a new lady, according to a new report! ‘Arrow’ star Megalyn Echikunwoke has reportedly stolen Chris’ heart. So will we see her on his arm at the Oscars?
Oscars host Chris Rock, 51, is dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, 32, according to a report from InTouch magazine! Megalyn and Chris apparently packed on the PDA at Clive Davis‘ 50th annual pre-Grammys party, and they’ve allegedly been inseparable since! One awards show down — will we see them together at the Oscars next?
“[Chris and Megalyn] were acting so in love — holding hands and looking into each other’s eyes [at the Grammys party],” a source told InTouch. “They really turned it on once the photographers started snapping. It was almost like he was trying to show everyone that he’s moved on with this really beautiful woman. Chris is totally in love with Megalyn. He’s even called her his true soul mate.”
Omg! It sounds like this relationship is totally on. We wouldn’t be surprised if Megalyn strolled down the red carpet at the Academy Awards with Chris! Apparently, Chris’ friends and family are “nuts” about the actress, who plays Mari McCabe/Vixen on Arrow, according to the source — because they allegedly think she’s an upgrade from Chris’ ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock.
“[Chris’ family] never liked Malaak; they’ve always thought she was cold-hearted,” the source said. “Megalyn is the total opposite. She’s so sweet and makes Chris so happy. They think she’s his perfect match.” High praise for Megalyn, but kind of a burn toward Chris; he and Malaak were married for 19 years, and it appears that nobody clued him in on their feelings!
Chris is still embroiled in a contentious divorce with Malaak, trying to fight it out over Chris’ $70 million and custody of their three children. “Malaak is threatening to destroy Chris,” according to the source. Though this seems terribly rough, he apparently has sweet Megalyn in his life now!
