Malaak Compton-Rock – Chris Rock’s Ex-Wife

Malaak Compton-Rock

Malaak Compton-Rock is the ex-wife of Chris Rock and the couple divorced last year after 19 years of marriage. In an interview with The Guardian, Rock talked about his divorce to Compton as he was going through it and said: I’m doing OK. You know, some days are better than others, some days you’re sad outta your fucking mind. But my daughters are good and I’m only an hour away. Two houses close by. It’s good. At one point in the divorce, there were claims that Compton wasn't allowing Rock to visit his children with "normal access" to them. Compton's attorney David Aronson then released the following statement to People: Malaak is saddened and disappointed that Chris has accused her of keeping their children from him, which he knows is untrue and can be so easily disproved. We all know Chris leads a very busy public life while Malaak and their children definitely do not. She hopes the privacy of their children is still as important to Chris as it is to her and that it will be respected. They will always be the main focus of her life. Irreconcilable differences were cited as the reason for the couple's divorce. So, with a nearly two-decade long marriage, Compton has a significant claim to her ex's wealth. With an estimated net worth of $70 million, that's a lot of money to go around. Chris Rock is currently reported to be dating Megalyn Echikunwoke.
