So it begins. Just days after announcing their split, it seems that Chris Rock and estranged wife Malaak Compton-Rock are having custody woes.
According to TMZ,
“In his divorce docs, filed in NJ last Tuesday — and obtained by TMZ — Rock complains that Malaak has been preventing him from seeing their 2 daughters on a regular basis. He is asking for shared legal and physical custody of 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra.”
Malaak told PEOPLE magazine that she and Chris resolved to divorce in a statement made to the media source earlier this month. “After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” said the celeb wife. “My children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority,” added Malaak.
Although the two signed a prenuptial agreement when they wed, Chris and Malaak are said to be working out the division of property and finances since the contract expired last year. Chris and Malaak wed in 1996.
