Comedian and actor Chris Rock has joined the list of celebrities in Hollywood who are speaking out against porn and the effect it’s had on their life and marriage.

While on his “Total Blackout” comedy tour last week, Rock opened up about struggling with a porn addiction that ended his 16-year marriage to Malaak Compton.

According to the Inquisitr, Rock confessed that his addiction to porn created a wedge between him and his now ex-wife. He also admitted to having difficulty making eye contact, often missing social cues and some days not even talking to Compton at all.

“Rock joked about his porn addiction causing him to be 15 minutes late everywhere he went, and how his addiction to porn negatively affected him in other ways,” Inquisitr reports.

“My father actually wanted to talk to my mother when he came home,” Rock shared of the difference between his and his parents’ marriages.

The 52 year old said it took therapy to help him overcome his addiction. Unfortunately that coupled with three extra marital affairs could not salvage his marriage.

Rock, who is now on a quest to “strengthen his faith,” as reported by Vibe, joins actors like Terry Crews, who has turned to faith and come forward to speak out against pornography.

In 2016, Crews posted a video on Facebook admitting that his obsession with X-rated content ended his marriage to Rebecca King Crews.

“It changes the way you think about people. People become objects,” he said.

“It affected everything,” Crews continued. “I didn’t tell my wife … didn’t tell my friends. Nobody knew, but the internet allowed that little secret to just stay and grow. It was something that my wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you anymore. I’m out of here.'”

“Pornography really, really messed up my life in a lot of ways,” Crews added.
