This is so bizarre!
On Tuesday, it was revealed that Chris Rock hasn't seen the 7-year-old girl who has been living with his family since she was an infant in over a YEAR! Whoa.
It's said that now that the Everybody Hates Chris creator is divorcing his wife, Malaak, he's distancing himself from the little one — as he believes Ntombi was brought over from South Africa under shady circumstances. Huh??

In case you forgot, the kiddo first joined the Rock family back in 2008 when she was only 6 months old. Apparently, Ntombi's parents were unemployed South Africans and the Hollywood couple took in their daughter. Not to mention, the duo even enrolled their "foster" daughter in a New Jersey school.
Last year, the A-lister began his divorce proceedings with his wife and maintained a relationship with his two biological daughters but not Ntombi. Around this same time, South African officials opened an investigation to try and piece together how the youngster went from their country to the U.S. since there is N-O evidence of a legal adoption.
Hmm, very inneresting!
Sources claim that the comedian has stopped seeing the kid because he never signed adoption papers and that bringing her to the U.S. was all his estranged wife's doing. Yikes!
One thing is clear, it looks like Ntombi was never officially adopted. We wonder why the child's biological parents would allow their daughter to live with a strange family for years??
Chris' reps have denied that he has an adopted child, whereas Malaak's lawyers have yet to comment on the matter. We can only imagine this legal situation will take an inneresting turn in the near future.
What do YOU think?! Is something fishy going on here??
SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
