Remember the rumors a few years ago, the one where he was supposedly having an affair with co-star Kerry Washington? Well the NY Daily News just got wind of some info that may confirm the rumors. Apparently producer David Mamet wanted Chris to star in his broadway play “Race,” which stars Washington, but Chris’s wife Malaak was not having it.
Here’s what they’re reporting today:
Producers of Mamet’s eagerly awaited “Race” have announced that it’s due to feature David Alan Grier, Kerry Washington, James Spader and Richard Thomas. But we hear Mamet first offered Grier’s part to Rock.
Why didn’t Rock take it?
Whispers along the Rialto claim Malaak wouldn’t let him because Washington was in it.
Two years ago, when Rock and Washington made the big-screen comedy “I Think I Love My Wife,” the inevitable rumors surfaced that, like his character, Rock was finding his marriage tested by his enchanting co-star.
Both actors laughed off the talk at the time. But, according to sources, Malaak dreaded the revival of the rumors.
