The source said, “It’s a good sign when he makes time for someone on tour.” Yes, Rock has his plate full with his tour and the upcoming comedy special. According to the insider, he still makes Bell his priority. Bell was busy too. She has worked on the HBO Max TV show Harley Quinn. Season 3 of the animated series arrives July 28 via HBO.

In June 2022, the couple was filmed on camera at a Cardinals baseball game in St. Louis, per TMZ. The rumored couple was spotted multiple times over the weekend of July 4th. The two were spotted having dinner at Giorgio Baldi and Coast Restaurant in Santa Monica, California, according to TMZ. Exclusive photos of the two can be seen on Page Six.
