Chris Rock's Wife Reveals She's In The Process Of Adopting That Mystery Girl Who Had Been Living With Her Family!
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:
WNBA Star Glory Johnson Pleads Guilty To Disorderly Conduct In Domestic Violence Case With Brittney Griner
The headlines keep rolling in.
WNBA player Glory Johnson was able to have her assault charge dropped in the domestic violence case with ex Brittney Griner after pleading guilty to disorderly conduct.
The plea deal is very similar to the same Griner received after the infamous physical altercation between the couple back in April, according to TMZ.
ICYMI: The basketballers were arrested for assaulting each other after an argument at Lowe's. The physical fight didn't escalate until the then-couple was at home behind closed doors. Shortly after the incident, they got hitched and subsequently divorced 28 days later. And most recently, Johnson gave birth to twins in October.
Yes, you read that all correctly.
Fortunately for Johnson, she will not have to serve jail time but she will have to participate in a six month domestic violence program. She's also not allowed to own a gun or harass Griner. Seems reasonable…
The divorce is still ongoing.
We're just glad this whole ordeal is one step closer to being figured out for the sake of the newborns.
What do U think, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!

In a surprise to no one, Jared Fogle's now ex-wife, Katie, won big in their divorce.
While the momma-of-two had initially wanted to fight for sole custody of their children, she ultimately decided to let the courts chose her kids' fate.
And it turns out they were completely on her side! A judge ruled that Katie will have sole physical AND legal custody of Brady and Quinn.
But, the scandalized star's former flame is allowing her four-year-old and two-year-old to phone their father so they can get used to not seeing him, now that he's behind bars.
And custody wasn't the only thing Katie won now that the divorce papers have been finalized. She will also receive a $7 million dollar settlement.

It's never easy being alone during the holidays.
However, it appears that Teresa Giudice will be flying solo this Thanksgiving so her daughters won't have to spend the holiday behind bars. What a brave decision!
In case you forgot, the Real Housewives of New Jersey alum is currently finishing out her 11 and 1/2 month sentence at the federal prison in Danbury, Connecticut. Tragic!
A source shared:
"Teresa wants Thanksgiving to be as normal as possible for the girls."
That's a nice gesture — but we have a feeling a normal holiday won't happen until AFTER both their parents are done serving their jail time. Oof.
Nonetheless, it's said that Miz Giudice may still call home while her mini-me's spend Turkey Day with their father Joe Giudice.
The insider added:
Chris Rock's Mystery 'Foster' Daughter Is In The U.S. On A Visitor Visa From South Africa — But Why Was She Never Adopted?!
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
