As is the tradition in Hollywood when it comes to quitting your long-term piece, it sounds like shit between Chris Rock and his soon-to-be ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock is starting to get rock-y (oh lord, I’ll show myself out for that one). TMZ says that Chris and Malaak are already fighting over their two daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra. According to the divorce papers filed last Tuesday in New Jersey, Chris says that Malaak has been preventing him from seeing his daughters, and is asking for shared custody.
He also mentions that they signed a pre-nup back in 1996 when they got married, but that it’s expired because they’ve been together for almost 20 years. He also throws in a bit about Malaak having the “ability to work and contribute to her own support“, which kind of sounds like a fancy way of saying he’s not planning on backing a dump truck full of Grown Ups 2 money into her driveway every month.
Not to mention that shortly after Malaak released an amicable-sounding statement to People about their split, TMZ says Chris’ rep responded to it by making sure everyone knew it was Chris Rock who and ONLY Chris Rock who filed those divorce papers.
Its literally been less than 48-hours since
Chris Rock and Malaak Compton-Rock sorry, JUST CHRIS ROCK announced he was quitting his wife, and so far we’ve got custody drama and money drama and who divorced who drama, so I can only imagine what’s next. I’m guessing either Seinfeld DVD collection drama or who gets custody of David Spade drama (“You keep him.” “No, he’s your friend – YOU keep him!“)
