Well, that sucks. Chris Rock has been in the news lately with a new film and very intelligent comments dealing with the racial issues we’ve got going on in the US that have hit a boiling point lately. And now he’s in the news again and it’s not happy. 18 years is like FOREVER in Hollyweird.
After 18 years of marriage, Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock have decided to divorce. The couple married in November 1996 share daughters Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10.
“Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak,” Rock’s rep tells Us. “This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”
In 2006 the New York Daily News reported that Rock, 49, had filed for divorce, but weeks later the site reported that the couple had worked out their differences. Rock released a statement at the time calling the reports “untrue rumors and lies.”
So, Merry Xmas and all that. Love is dead, I told you.
