According to MTO, the actress stepped out for an event wearing an antique ring on that finger, and a close source confirmed that the duo are secretly engaged. This comes weeks after Echinwoke denied claims that she is in a relationship with the Rock.

Recall that Echinwoke vehemently denied dating Rock earlier on this year. In her interview with Hip Hop Hollywood at the 2016 Academy Awards, the ’24’ actress slammed rumours that she has any romantic relationship with Chris Rock who is still embroiled in nasty divorce battle with his wife of ten years, Malaak Comptom-Rock.
“I’m too busy for romance. Yeah I have work to do,” 32-year-old Echinwoke said, before adding, in a seemingly angry tone, “I think it’s pretty funny that people don’t have anything else to do, but hey if you want to talk about me, go right ahead. I’m pretty interesting I guess.”
However, Echinwoke and Rock seem to have taken their relationship to the next level. They have been spotted many times on romantic outings, walking arm-in-arm and refusing to address the current statement of their relationship.
It’s been a year since Rock separated from his wife, and we guess it won’t be long before the divorce process is finalised, so that the new couple can really make their relationship public as they obviously yearn to do.
