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.

    These two parents will have to learn to “co-parent” (which is a word I hate btw, but seems to fit). If they can’t make it together as husband and wife then so be it, but the children deserve their mother and father. And btw I don’t believe a word from TMZ, I hate the way they report the “news” it’s more like garbage.

      It’s worse than garbage. I describe it more like Morgan Freeman described that tunnel Tim Robbins had to crawl thru in Shawshank Redemption. And you are totally right, that fake sincerity & concern on the part of Tonya Richardson just kills me.

    “Let’s hope they can keep it amicable going forward.” You journalist kill me trying to pretend you only want the best for people. You couldn’t care less about them keeping their mess amicable, that gives you more dirt to use and report. Miss me with that BS.

    Hopefully she is not keeping his kids from him, but her and Chris may need a moment to re-group.
    If she wasn’t working when they were together then she should’nt work now, unless she wants to.

    I hope this isn’t the case. No man should be kept from his children, unless he is a deadbeat and that is not the case here. If these kids are being used as a pawn then GOD does not bless that kind of mess, regardless of popular, or should I say gender based beliefs. Any rich man, is bait for someone to accuse him to try to extort money. Why we so easily believe these accusations is beyond me. Then again, I do get it, we always want to believe the worst. It tells more about our character than it does Chris’

    • While I’m shocked and sadden about their divorce how much a wife or husband should take when it comes to cheating??? Chris has been accused of fathering two babies that we know of! And thought they were not his the situation exposed him having sex with someone else. Why does society think the wife should take this kind of ish cause if it were reversed the the guy would be out the door! Good luck to both of them
