A growing number of celebrities have begun speaking openly about their struggles to overcome addictions, and comedian Chris Rock recently joined their ranks.
Inquisitr reports that on his “Total Blackout” comedy tour (still in full swing), Rock spoke openly about how his pornography addiction ultimately destroyed his marriage to Malaak Compton.
At his show in Cleveland, “Chris took the full blame for the failure of his marriage, blaming his former pornography addiction, his adultery and Rock’s ineptitude at talking with his wife as the reason why he ended up in divorce court.”

Rock is not the only celebrity to discuss the damage pornography can do to a marriage. Terry Crews posted a video to Facebook last year discussing his own struggles:
It changes the way you think about people. People become objects...
It affected everything. 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.
