2. Malaak Compton-Rock & Chris Rock

Chris and Malaak are unfortunately divorcing after almost 19 years of marriage.

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.
