Chris Rock and Wife of 19 Years Call It Quits


Chris Rock has split from his wife after 18 years of marriage.

The Top Five star wed Malaak Compton-Rock in November, 1996, but the comedian recently filed for divorce.

A statement issued by Rock’s attorney, Robert S. Cohen, reads, “Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak.

“This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”

The actor’s estranged wife adds, “After much contemplation and 19 years (sic) of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways…

“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.”

The couple has two daughters.
