Chris Rock's Mystery 'Foster' Daughter Is In The U.S. On A Visitor Visa From South Africa — But Why Was She Never Adopted?!

chris rock foster daughter details revealed

This just gets crazier and crazier!

ICYMI: On Tuesday, it was revealed Chris Rock has distanced himself from the South African 7-year-old girl who mysteriously lives with his family now that he's divorcing his wife Malaak.

However, it's since been reported that little Ntombi is in the U.S. thanks to a visitor visa.

Well that's odd since the little one started living with the Rock family back in 2008 when she was only 6 months old and was treated like a member of their family. Not to mention, Chris and his estranged wife also enrolled the girl into a New Jersey school.

Sources shared that Ntombi came to the U.S. specifically through a B2 "visitor for pleasure" visa. This paperwork allowed the child to come to the States for up to a year and then return to her home country to redo paperwork before coming back. Whoa!

We wonder why a formal adoption never took place??

Apparently, Malaak brought her "foster" daughter to South Africa every year and even

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!

David Spade and Eddie Murphy feud


Eddie Murphy had some choice words for David Spade after his infamous "Hollywood Minute" bit on Saturday Night Live in the '80s. In Spade's new memoir Almost Interesting, the 51-year-old opens up about the joke that caused the Dr. Doolittle star to boycott the live comedy show for nearly 31 years — and not return until SNL 40 this past February.

As a refresher, in an episode of Spade's "Weekend Update"-style segment where he would harps on celebs, the comic showed a picture of Murphy (right after the movies Harlem Nights and Vampire in Brooklyn flopped) and joked about his struggling career:

"Look, children! It's a falling star. Make a wish."
