While there’s no doubt that Chris Rock makes a living poking fun at other people, his own failed marriage is something that he doesn’t talk about very often. Chris first met his future wife Malaak Compton-Rock at a 1994 Essence Awards Show that he happened to crash at the time. Malaak was a Hollywood publicist who worked with UNICEF while Chris was working on his comedy routine back on the East Coast. Malaak is also an accomplished writer and humanitarian, and has even rubbed elbows with the likes of Oprah Winfrey. Chris and Malaak tied the knot in 1996, with Chris telling Ebony one year later (via People), “She’s changed me. She’s really calmed me down and centered my life.”

Chris and Malaak went on to have two daughters together and a third child that she adopted from South Africa, per the Daily Mail. However, there was some controversy when the child’s biological father told TMZ that the child was never fully adopted even though she was already living with the Rock family for seven years back in 2015. But that wasn’t the only headline-grabbing drama that the Rocks had to deal with during their marriage. Chris even admitted to being a “f*****g a****e” when he did this to his wife.
