Actor Chris Rock has revealed he once tried flirting with Rihanna but was quickly shot down. The 53-year-old actor said he approached RiRi at a party, some time after he divorced Malaak Compton-Rock, his wife of 16 years in 2016, Page Six reported.


"I'm like, 'How you doing Rihanna?' Rihanna looked at me like I was one of her aunts. She didn't even register me as a d**k-carrying member of society. Like, I would have had an easier time f**king Aretha Franklin," Rock said on his new Netflix special, Tamborine.
