*Breaking up is hard to do, but in Chris Rock’s case it’s also a little sad.
“I’m doing OK,” the funnyman told the newspaper regarding his status after the end of his 19-year marriage to Compton-Rock. “You know, some days are better than others, some days you’re sad outta your f*cking mind. But my daughters are good and I’m only an hour away. Two houses close by. It’s good.”
As for how much joking about the difficulties of marriage played into what ultimately happened, Rock laughingly stated, ““Hey, I’m getting divorced now.”
While Rock is taking the good and the bad, things haven’t been rosy between him and Compton-Rock regarding their divorce.
Court documents obtained by People revealed claims from Rock that his estranged wife had “repeatedly refused to permit [him] normal and usual access to the children, and has acted in a manner detrimental to the children’s best interests.”
Compton-Rock fired back by denying the claims in a statement released by her lawyer.
“We all know Chris leads a very busy public life while Malaak and their children definitely do not,” her attorney said. “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.”
