Finally we have an explanation!
On Tuesday, Chris Rock's estranged wife Malaak Compton-Rock, spoke out on claims that she illegally fostered a child from South Africa. Speculation surrounding the four-year-old Ntombi's adoption surfaced during the pair's divorce contentious proceedings.
Unfortunately, Chris is denying any relationship to Ntombi despite living with the girl for seven years. The comedian even went as far to allege that he had no knowledge of how the child entered their family, suggesting that Malaak was deceptive about the arrangement.
Now Compton-Rock's rep is fighting back, saying:
"The tabloid reports are false and outrageous. Malaak has never been contacted about an investigation of any sort. The welfare and livelihood of this child has always been of utmost importance to the entire Rock family. She is in the United States lawfully with the written consent of her biological parents, with whom she continues to have contact."
Hmm, sounds relatively legit!
The source added:
"While Malaak has made strides in the adoption, she understands that intercountry adoption is a long and rigorous process, with checks and balances in both countries essential for the protection of children," the statement adds. "Malaak again appeals for the privacy of her family."
Sheesh. All we can hope is that the adoption is completed smoothy and LEGALLY.
We hate to say we saw this coming!
On Tuesday, DailyMail revealed that Chris Rock is now facing a full criminal investigation surrounding the South African child he raised in his home for seven years without formally adopting her. Whoa.
It's said that an elite unit from the South African police force is looking in to see if the comedian and his estranged wife Malaak took Ntombi out of her home country by not following the proper legal procedure.
As we previously reported, after the couple's relationship to their "foster" daughter was revealed, reports claimed that Miz Rock took the tiny tot back to her birthplace to get a visitor visa every year. Huh?
Still, despite her impending divorce to the Everybody Hates Chris creator, the mother-of-
three two is in the process of adopting the 7-year-old. So what's with the threat of an investigation??
Unfortunately, Ntombi's paperwork has her in the U.S. as a visitor not a prospective adoptee. Of course this highly publicized situation has raised some alarm in the country's Department of Home Affairs — who has enlisted the help of the Hawks police team that handles sensitive cases.
A detective from the task force explained:
Malaak Compton-Rock is setting the record straight!
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:
This just gets crazier and crazier!
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!
Sources claim that the comedian has
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."
As an SNL alum and fellow comedian trying to make it, Eddie was not thrilled to say the least. The actor called Spade constantly until finally David got the courage to call him back. The
convo confrontation went like this:
Looks like those rumors were true after all!
Well, we guess they liked what the Top Five actor was putting on the table because Chris is officially the host for the 88th Academy Awards!
The Saturday Night Live alum hosted the awards show back in 2005, so we're beyond confident in his abilities.
Make sure to catch Chris and the rest of the night's special guests February 28, 2016 at 8pm EST on ABC.
Congrats on the big get, Chris! And same to you, Oscars!
