CSI actress, Megalyn Echikunwoke has squashed the rumours of a possible engagement to her boyfriend, 51-year-old comedian, Chris Rock.
Megalyn has been spotted with a ring on her left ring finger a number of times including last night at the 68th Primetime Emmy Awards and many people thought Chris had popped the question.
However, in an interview with People at the Emmy Eve Party at the Sunset Tower Hotel on Saturday night, Echikunwoke denied being engaged to Chris.
She also said she was against the opinion that marriage was the ultimate dream of any woman.
She said, “I guess there’s this misconception about once you’re engaged how could you possibly want anything more than marriage and kids. It’s kind of like lock down a rich guy. I’m here to say that there’s more to life than that, and this common lame notion that that’s all a girl could possibly want in life is completely bulls–t. So, I mean, I have a boyfriend who I love and that’s all I need.”
Chris and Megalyn first appeared publicly as a couple in September 2015 at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park. after Rock got divorced from his wife of about 19 years, Malaak Compton but rumours were rife that they had been dating even before the divorce,
