ABOUT MY MONEY: Megalyn Claims She’s Too Busy To Be Chris Rock's Girlfriend + “BBW: L.A.” Malaysia Pargo Is New Face Of Seagram’s Gin
We’re confused. Chris Rock’s alleged girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke claims she’s NOT his girlfriend! Wait...what? Deets on their “situationship” inside, plus details about “Basketball Wives: L.A.” star Malaysia Pargo becoming the new face of Seagram’s Gin inside….
If you hadn’t heard about Chris Rock’s alleged girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke, you certainly found out about her after this year’s 88th Academy Awards.
She’s the 32-year-old daughter of an Igbo African tribe leader and also an actress who has starred in a few television series. Rumors of the African actress dating the 51-year-old Top Five actor started circulating after the twosome was spotted getting cozy at Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party last month.
And, let's be honest, two GROWN ass adults of the opposite sex and of a certain age who are ALWAYS together....don't usually just hang out and eat popcorn together.
Further fueling dating rumors, Megalyn she showed up on Chris’ arm (along with his mother) at Vanity Fair’s Oscars afterparty. Showing up together at an event like the Oscars surely seems like the makings of a relationship, but that doesn’t seem true in Chris and Megalyn’s situation, at least, according to her.
HipHollywood caught up with Megalyn on the red carpet right before the Oscars ceremony where she revealed she and Chris Rock are NOT dating. Huh?
When asked if she could confirm their relationship she responded, “Who?” She flipped her hair and nonchalantly continued (with a smile on her face), “My name is Megalyn E.K. and I’m too busy for romance.” Oh? Does Chris know that?
She was then asked how she felt about the dating rumors, in which she responded, “I think its funny that people don’t have anything better to do. But hey, if you want to talk about me go right ahead. I’m pretty interesting I guess.” Hmph.
Hmm..are we buying it? Did she say all this to try and downplay the rumors OR do you think they’re really just friends? Speak on it in the comments.
