Comedian Chris Rock shocked many earlier this week after revealing that he had chosen to file for divorce after nearly 20 years of marriage. Shortly after reports began surfacing that the cause of the split was simply a desire by Rock to end an "unfulfilling marriage."
Now his estranged wife Malaak Compton-Rock, has responded to allegations that she's been preventing their two daughters from seeing Rock following the separation. Releasing a statement to People Magazine via her lawyer she responded, "Malaak is saddened and disappointed that Chris has accused her of keeping their children from him, which he knows is untrue and can be so easily disproved."
Her attorney David Aronson added, "We all know Chris leads a very busy public life while Malaak and their children definitely do not. She hopes the privacy of their children is still as important to Chris as it is to her and that it will be respected. They will always be the main focus of her life."
