Chris Rock’s Divorce May Take a Turn for the Ugly

Murfreesboro_Divorce AttorneysChris Rock and his ex-wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, could be on their way to a nasty divorce, from the looks of a recent divorce filing.

The two had been married for nearly 19 years when they decided to break things off.  Two days before Christmas, Chris Rock filed for divorce in New Jersey, claiming irreconcilable differences.  Although the announce seemed to have come out of nowhere, the divorce filing states that the two had been separated for six months.

The problem with the arrangements: Chris is claiming that Malaak has been preventing him from seeing their children.

In the divorce filings, Chris is asking for joint custody of Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10, wishing to share equal custody time of the girls with Malaak.  He claims, however, that Malaak has been repeatedly refusing his “normal and usual access to the children,” and that her actions have been “detrimental to the children’s best interests.”

Malaak’s divorce attorney, however, has responded, declaring the claims to be untrue and easy to disprove.  Malaak has emphasised that she wishes for the girls’ lives to remain in privacy,  stating that she does have the girls’ best interest in mind.

Chris has requested that they have an equitable share of non-exempt property, and that Malaak is able to provide for own support, as well as to be able to manage her own support of their children.
