In an interview with TMZ, Jordan Rock, younger brother of comedian Chris Rock, was asked about the infamous story of Chris getting snubbed by Rihanna when he asked her out after his divorce from his wife of nearly 19 years, Malaak Compton-Rock.

Chris, 53, had previously shared the story in his stand-up Netflix show, Chris Rock: Tambourine. He said, "After my divorce was final, I was at a party and I saw Rihanna. I was like, "OK, let’s start this again. Let me say what’s up", right? And I’m like, 'How you doing, Rihanna?'"

He hilariously described how Rihanna made him realize how old he was, saying, "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."

The interviewer asked Jordan if Chris had shot too high by approaching Rihanna, and he replied, "He's never shooting too high, we're Rocks! We can never shoot too high. You never know what every girl would want."

Jordan was then asked if dating a younger woman would have worked out, to which he said, "You know what? He's not dating Rihanna, but his new girlfriend is a few years younger than him," referring to Megalyn Echikunwoke, 34, who has been dating Chris for two years now.

Jordan went on to add that dating a younger woman had changed Chris for the better, continuing "So, I think going for a younger chick was the move, you know? Have you seen him lately? His face is looking good, like, everything's picked up."

The interviewer asked Jordan if he had noticed anything different about Chris, and he replied, saying, "It's like I've got a new brother. I hit him up, I'm asking him way more favors these days."

He added that Chris told him, "Yeah man, I'm happy, I'm at an All-Star game," referring to his attendance at the 2018 NBA All-Star Game on February 18.
