Chris Rock Files for Divorce From Wife Malaak Compton

Chris Rock and his wife Malaak Compton-Rock are ending their marriage, amicably.

The two are parents to two daughters, ages 12 and 10. News about their split was confirmed on Sunday, three days after Christmas.

"Chris Rock has filed for divorce from his wife, Malaak," the actor's rep told E! News. "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," Compton-Rock, 45, said in a statement to People magazine. "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."

"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," she added. "It is in this spirit that I sincerely ask that their privacy and the privacy of our family be respected during this transition in our lives."

LL Cool J Collaborates With Eminem, T.I. for G.O.A.T. 2

LL Cool J recently took to the underground media (you know, the Internet) to announce details of his next album, G.O.A.T. 2, and he revealed that he's teaming up with the likes of Eminem — something he's never done before — and T.I. for guest features.

“Me and Em have a song,” LL told Rap-Up. “He recently just let me hear his verse and it’s crazy. He’s chainsawing s**t. It’s good. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised when they hear me and him on a record together."

His other songs are just as "crazy" he added. "It's super hard," he said of the track with T.I. "I think people are gonna bug out on [it]."

Bronx-bred, XXL Freshman Fred the Godson is also among his collabs. "I got a lot of young gunners on this album — a lot of real hot young gunners, people that that are hungry and want to make the best music. It’s about the beats and the bars and the rhymes. It’s about being current and fresh and riveting — not a bunch of old tired '95 nugget ring bulls**t. It’s newness.”

LL dropped the original G.O.A.T. around the turn of the millennium, in September 2000. "To miss out on thisG.O.A.T. 2 album I think would be a travesty for hip hop," he said. "You can't miss this s**t." His most recent release, last year's Authentic, which featured the likes of Earth, Wind & Fire and Eddie Van Halen, "was a legacy record. This is about the culture now, and I think people are gonna love it."

No release date, as yet.
