Chris Rock Reportedly Claims Marriage Was ‘Not Fulfilling’
The news of Chris Rock’s divorce seems abrupt, but these things never really are. Filing for a split from his wife of 19 years, Malaak Rock-Compton, the 49-year-old comedian’s decision did not come out of nowhere. According to People, Rock knew for “a while” that his marriage could not be saved.
“This was a long time coming,” a source said. “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.”
While reports differ on whether the couple’s divorce will be amicable or not, TMZ reports that Rock felt the marriage was “not fulfilling,” and that the comedian simply “wasn’t happy.” The site also reports that according to court documents, Rock-Compton has been limiting the time her husband spends with their two daughters.
Rock is looking for shared legal and physical custody.
