Malaak Compton-Rock is breaking her silence!

Malaak Compton-Rock is setting the record straight!

As we previously reported, Chris Rock and his now-estranged wife had been living with a little girl — who wasn't their legal child — for years!

The comedian supposedly hasn't seen young Ntombi in over a year, and questions began to surface about why the 7-year-old hasn't yet been adopted by the famous family.

Malaak's lawyer had stayed silent on the subject… until now!

Attorney David Aronson told People:

"Although Chris Rock is a celebrity, Malaak and the children are not. Protecting the privacy of her family remains of utmost importance to Malaak. She is saddened by recent tabloid media reports which are full of erroneous speculation and inaccuracies that are hurtful to three innocent young girls. While the adoption by Malaak is not yet finalized, it is actively in process under the rigorous guidelines and safeguards of international adoption policy. The child is in the country lawfully with the written consent of her birth parents, and while here, has been cherished and adored by the entire Rock family."

Well, there you have it, Perezcious readers! Ntombi IS getting adopted! The actor's ex also explained that she's the sole primary caregiver for the sweet kid from South Africa.

However, an insider hinted that the 50-year-old might not "cherish and adore" her like David said, commenting:

"Chris has two children, and has always had only two children. He has never adopted a child. He maintains an extremely close and loving relationship with his daughters."

It'll be interesting to see how this plays out in the divorce drama. The former flames' tentative trial is set for next year.

What do U think about all this, Perezcious readers?
