2014 saw many celebrity relationships come to an end, and one more has joined the list.
On Sunday, popular Hollywood actor Chris Rock announced that he’d be splitting from his wife of 18 years, Malaak.
“Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak,” his attorney Robert S. Cohen said in a statement to People on Sunday. “This is a personal matter and Chris requests privacy as he and Malaak work through this process and focus on their family.”
“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” Malaak said of the development.
“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.”
The couple, who got married in 1996, are parents to Lola Simone, 12, and Zahra Savannah, 10.
