Chris Rock and Lake Bell were spotted enjoying a date: Complete story here!
Comedian Chris Rock and actress Lake Bell were pictured enjoying a brunch in Santa Monica, California, over the weekend, which could've been a work-related rendezvous, but the romance suspicion grew bigger when the two made several public appearances later on. Bell, 43, known for her extensive television credits like Boston Legal, Children's Hospital, Surface, and the running animated black comedy series, Harley Quinn, sported a black crop top and high waist jeans during the couple's date at Giorgio Baldi restaurant.
Rock, 57, meanwhile, kept it casual and was pictured in a white, full-sleeved top and a light-colored trouser. The rumored pair were first spotted on what is now believed to be their first public date at a St. Louis Cardinals baseball game in Missouri on June 13. Rock has been in the news ever since the infamous 2022 Academy slap. As a result, the comedian is now unable to enjoy a regular date without getting caught by an eagle-eyed paparazzi or a prying fan.

"Chris has been in a really good mood. He is dating and spending his downtime with Lake Bell," a source revealed. The source further tells that Rock and Bell have similar personalities; hence, they are always laughing in each other's presence.

The Grown Ups actor was married to humanitarian Malaak Compton-Rock from 1996 to 2016. Rock later admitted to infidelity and took the blame for his failed marriage. "You don't wanna get divorced. You got somebody you love? Hold tight, commit. It's my fault because I'm a f***ing a**hole. I didn't listen. I wasn't kind," the comedian said during a Netflix standup show.
