20 year marriage over for Chris Rock

On Monday 22 August, Chris Rock and Malaak Compton finalised their divorce in a New Jersey courtroom.

Married for 20 years, the pair had two daughters together, 14-year-old Lola and 12-year-old Zahra.

There was also another child in the Rock household, Ntombi, who was not their biological child and stayed with the family for unclear reasons.

It is also unclear what agreements were made in the divorce proceedings concerning Ntombi, and whether Rock will continue to have contact with the child.

Rock seems to have struggled with the break-up, saying in an interview with The Guardian in 2015, “I’m doing OK. You know, some days are better than others, some days you’re sad outta your fucking mind”.

Malaak has not commented as of yet.

Chris and Malaak have been separated since 2014 and Chris is now moving on and dating actress Megalyn Echikunwoke, who has appeared in the likes of CSI Miami and 90210.
