Cut the check — literally!
Divorces are pricey these days and for the rich and famous — it can be even more expensive. Just ask 50-year-old comedian/actor Chris Rock.
As you know, last year he and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock, announced their divorce. The two had been married 19 years and shared two children (Lola Simone and Zahra Savannah).
According to Page Six, their divorce may result in Malaak receiving a pretty pricey payout. The site reports:
Comedian Chris Rock’s estranged wife wants to live the life of a celebrity spouse even after they’re divorced. Malaak Compton-Rock is demanding a huge hunk of her husband’s $70 million fortune so she can maintain a Champagne-and-caviar lifestyle, a copy of her divorce papers reveals. The stay-at-home mom married the ex-“Saturday Night Live” star in 1996 after they met at the Essence Awards while she was working in public relations. She soon gave up her career and became a full-time mother, court papers say.
Reportedly, Malaak is a stay at home mother, in addition to running her charity, The Angel Rock Project. According to court docs, the former couple have already agreed to 50-50 child custody. The court filings also states Malaak deserves a payout “commensurate with the marital standard of living” because of all her child-rearing and charitable endeavors.
