Chris Rock Files for Divorce From Wife, Malaak Compton-Rock

“Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak,” the “Top Five” star’s lawyer, Robert Cohen, told ABC News. “This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”

The couple are parents to two daughters – Lola Simone, 12, and Zahra Savannah, 10.

Compton-Rock told People magazine that the choice to split was one that took a lot of thought and wasn’t a spur of the moment decision.

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” she told the magazine. “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.”

Compton-Rock, who married the famed comedian in 1996, is a philanthropist and founder of the nonprofit organization styleWorks, which helps women to obtain employment after welfare.

Rock’s rep did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
