Chris Rock and His Wife Are Getting a Divorce After 19 Years Together


Oh, did you think that, with only three days left to go in 2014, we were finally out of the woods? Nope. In sad celebrity news, Chris Rock and wife Malaak Compton-Rock are getting a divorce after almost 20 years of marriage. "After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways," Compton-Rock said in a statement Sunday. "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." Chris Rock confirmed the couple's split through his lawyer, Robert S. Cohen. It must be a bittersweet year for Rock, who had a career renaissance with Top Five. Here's to happier times in 2015.
