2. Malaak Compton-Rock & Chris Rock
Chris was the one who filed for divorce and the comedian cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
There could also be a custody battle in the near future as the former couple has two daughters together, Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10.
In an official statement, Malaak had this to say:
“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways. Being fortunate enough to lead a life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life’s blessings, even when faced with difficulties. While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.”
Let’s hope this transition is for the better.
