Chris Rock and Wife Malaak Split After 19 Years Together

Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock have gone their separate ways.

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” the 49-year-old comedian’s wife told People in a statement. “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.”

The statement continued, “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.”

According to TMZ, Chris has filed divorce papers.

The couple has two daughters together, Lola Simone, 12, and Zahra Savannah, 10.
