Chris Rock filed for divorce from his wife of 19 years for one simple reason … he wasn’t happy in the marriage, sources directly connected to the couple tell TMZ.
One source says this will be a “simple divorce” and that there is no third party involved — Chris just did not want to continue in a marriage that was not fulfilling.
Although our sources say the divorce won’t be contentious … obviously there is some bad blood. As TMZ previously reported … Rock complained Malaak has been preventing him from seeing their 2 daughters — and he is asking for shared legal and physical custody.
Malaak issued a statement making it seem like they jointly came to the decision to split — but Chris’ people fired back … making it clear HE was the one who filed for divorce.
