Chris Rock’s relationship with girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke isn’t in “trouble,” despite a completely made-up tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively debunk this claim.

The comedian and actress have been dating since February 2016, but an article in the latest issue of In Touch says their romance is now “on the rocks.” The alleged problem – according to the repeatedly discredited outlet – is that Echikunwoke wants to get married and have children, but Rock isn’t ready yet. The outlet quotes a dubious insider as saying the comic frequently gets “frustrated and angry” with his girlfriend for insisting he commit, resulting in constant fights.

The seemingly phony source further purports that Rock recently caused a scene at his girlfriend’s Los Angeles home when he allegedly “showed up and desperately tried to get Megalyn to open the door but she refused, so he started banging on the windows and yelling for her to let him in.” The “insider” continues, “When Chris and Megalyn fight, he shows his ugly side. Megalyn is getting sick of it.”

But Gossip Cop looked into the tabloid’s alleged account of events, and a rep for Rock exclusively assures us the story is simply “not true.” We’re told there haven’t been any big blowups between the couple, nor is there relationship in trouble. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time we’ve had to debunk a bogus report about the pair.

A few months after the couple started dating, we busted the National Enquirer for wrongly reporting Rock and Echikunwoke were engaged simply because the actress was wearing a ring at The CW’s upfront presentation. Shortly after that, HollywoodLife inaccurately speculated the comedian had proposed because Echikunwoke was wearing a ring in an Instagram photo. The two still aren’t engaged, but their relationship isn’t dwindling either, despite this latest bogus article.
