Chris Rock and his wife of 19 years, Malaak Compton-Rock have split, but its been a long time coming a source told People,  “This was a long time coming. Chris has known it wasn’t salvageable for a while. He was the one to file because he knew it was time to just move forward already.” Anther source told TMZ, that Chris was no longer happy in the marriage and there was not ‘third party’ involved. And the divorce may not be too clean, Chris is already complaining that Malaak has been preventing him from seeing his two daughters and may want shared legal and physical custody.

Chris filed for divorce, but the couple have been living apart for some time now. Malaak released a statement to People, “After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways. 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. 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.”
