Last winter, Chris Rock, 50, filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 20 years, Malaak Compton-Rock, 46. Thankfully, the messy details of their split (if there are any) have not been unfolding in the headlines, but it appears that this may change shortly.

According to Page Six, Malaak recently submitted documents to the Bergen County courts, and she’s requesting a significant portion of the comedian’s $70 million fortune.

In the filing, the stay-at-home mother of two explains that she put her career in public relations on hold after the birth of their two daughters, Lola Simone, 13, and Zahra Savannah, 11. In other words, she’s going to need Chris to continue financially supporting the lifestyle that she has grown accustomed to living.

Documents state that Malaak deserves a payout “commensurate with the marital standard of living” because she’s dedicated much of her life to child rearing and charity work. As previously reported, the pair did sign a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot in 1996; however, it expired on their 18-year wedding anniversary.
