First Chris Rock and his wife of 18 years surprised everyone with news they were splitting up just before the New Year.
Now it appears things aren’t going to easily as they try to come to terms over money and children. TMZ.com reports that while the couple had a preunup in place when they married in 1996, it has expired. But in November, Chris Rock says that they at least have come to an agreement on the division of community property.
But their daughters could be a point of contention – as Chris says he hasn’t been able to see them recently.
He filed papers in a New Jersey court last week saying that Malaak Compton Rock has been keeping him from seeing their daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra.
He is asking for joint legal and physical custody and also indicated that his estranged wife is capable of working and contributing to her own support.
Let’s hope they can keep it amicable going forward.
