American actor, comedian, and producer, Chris Rock married Malaak Compton-Rock on 23rd November 1996. His wife, Malaak, is the founder and executive director of StyleWorks,  a non-profit, full-service salon that provides free services for women leaving welfare and entering the workforce. They have two lovely children together, Lola Simone (b. 2002) and Zahra Savannah (b.2004).


Even though Chris and Malaak looked amazingly happy together, they decided to split in December 2014. Yes! divorces are never easy for couples to deal with. That’s what happened between Chris and Malaak. It was one of the worst divorces Hollywood had ever seen. Malaak and Chris were constantly blaming each other for their divorce.


There were rumors that Chris’s ex-wife was preventing him from seeing his daughters. He asked for shared legal and physical custody of the girls. ?

Everybody wanted to know the reason behind their separation. But, the couple decided to end their 19 years of marriage but kept the reason behind their divorce a secret.


But, there was news all around during their divorce that Malaak demanded a large portion of Chris's $70 million fortune so that she can maintain her lifestyle.

Even though Chris never accepted, we assume that his secret affair with Rosario Dawson is the real reason behind Chris and Malaak’s separation. Chris and Rosario were rumored to get together while making ‘Top Five’. But, they did not come out in public about their relation as Chris was a married man.

The internet broke with shock when a photo of Chirs and Rosario came out which was shot during premiere after-party of their film 'Top Five.'


Chris Rock was born on 7th February 1965. His real name is Christopher Julius Rock III. He was born to Rosalie Rock and Julius Rock in Andrews, South Carolina, United States of America.
