After 19 years of marriage, Chris Rock filed for divorce from his wife Malaak. The two got married in 1996 and have two daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra.

Malaak released a statement to People Magazine yesterday saying:

"After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways. While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority."

Back in 2006, Chris had divorce papers drawn up but never filed because the two had worked things out.
