Chris Rock Claims His Estranged Wife Illegally Adopted 7-Year-Old Mystery Daughter
In March of 2010, NY Post spotted Chris Rock with a mystery child. Chris Rock has two biological children; Zahra Savannah Rock and Lola Simone Rock. Well in 2010, Chris Rock was seen leaving Trump International Hotel carrying a little girl that looked to be about 1 or 2 along with his two daughters. Many suspected it to be the child of Kali Bowyer, a woman who filed a paternity suit against Rock in 2007. The DNA proved that he was not the father.
When asked about the little girl, PR agents simply said she was the daughter of a family friend from South Africa. When asked if the little girl was adopted, the Rocks never confirmed nor denied the claims, they just continued to say she was a family friend.
Speculation about the little girl settled until 2014 until an article from News 24 reported that investigators were trying to track down the little girl’s biological parents. The child was born in February 2008 to an unemployed Johannesburg couple. Their is no public record of the parents being found because the couple refuses to speak to the newspaper. I guess the jig is up because now Chris Rock is speaking out.
Chris Rock filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years, Maleek Compton-Rock, in December of 2014. The divorce has not been too friendly according to areport from Page Six released in June of this year that claims that Malaak is coming for Chris Rock’s money. The court filings say Compton-Rock deserves a payout “commensurate with the marital standard of living” because of all her child-rearing and charitable endeavors.
Well Chris Rock is fighting back. According to TMZ , Chris Rock is saying that his estranged wife obtained the now 7-year–old mystery daughter illegally. In 2008, a 6-month-old named Ntombi from South Africa began living with the Rock family. The girl stayed in the family house ever since. Ntombi was even enrolled in a New Jersey school. Well Chris Rock has not seen the little girl since the divorce was filed. He has seen his biological daughters but not Ntombi and he suspects it is because South Africa opened the investigation that was previously mentioned. They are attempting to discover how the child went from their country to The United States without any evidence of legal adoption. Rock’s reps continue to say that he doesn’t have an adopted daughter while Malaak has been nonresponsive.
