Another Hollywood couple is calling it quits, at least in the love department. Comedian/actor Chris Rock (49) and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock (45) have ended their marriage. Malaak confirmed the news in a statement:

After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways…Being fortunate enough to lead a life of service by working with those most vulnerable makes me well aware of life’s blessings, even when faced with difficulties….While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority. It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives.

According to Chris’ attorney, the comedian is the one who filed for divorce.
