“Would I ever get married again?” Rock said in a standup routine. “Not if it would cure AIDS.”
Rock, who in December announced his first comedy tour in nine years,
is on the current cover of Rolling Stone magazine. The accompanying interview is pretty raw.
Rock, 52, and Malaak Compton-Rock, 47, confirmed in 2015 that they were divorcing after 19 years of marriage.
The split wasn’t exactly shocking to fans who followed his biting commentary on relationships over the years, but it’s fueled new material.
“If someone wants 52 percent custody, you know they want to kill you,” Rolling Stone quoted him as joking.
Rock and his ex are the parents of two daughters, Lola 14, and Zahra 12.
Starting over hasn’t been easy, Rock said.
“You get to reset,” he said. “It’s not a breakdown, but something in your life broke down.”
