Chris Rock's Estranged Wife FINALLY Responds To The Adoption Controversy!

no title

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.

Filed under: Legal Matters50 CentSexControversy

50 Cent

50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson isn't the only one with some money issues — it seems his lawyers have a bit of a spending problem, too!

Lastonia Leviston, Rick Ross' baby momma who just won $7 million lawsuit against the Candy Shop rapper, filed new court papers challenging the expenses filed by Jackson's reps (Brewer Attorneys & Counselors) during the trial.

ICYMI: Fiddy edited himself into a sex tape of Leviston and her then-boyfriend Maurice Murray wearing a wacky wig and a robe — as part of his ongoing feud with Ross. The court awarded her $2 million in punitive damages on top of $5 million for violating her civil rights and causing emotional distress.

Because the In Da Club rapper filed for bankruptcy shortly after, Leviston hasn't been able to get her moola.

Now, she's taking action saying that the 40-year-old's lawyers were living the life of luxury and writing off all the "extravagant, excessive and unreasonable" expenses during the trial, which added up to

The Jinx Villain Robert Durst May Pay For More Crimes — He's Being Sued For $100 Million By His Missing Wife's Family!

no title

This sure would make for an interesting second season…

The story of an HBO mini-series turned real-life murder scandal captured most of America in 2015, and it looks like Robert Durst's legal problems just got even worse.

After the real estate heir was arrested for first-degree murder the day before the finale of The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst, the 72-year-old is now facing yet another lawsuit.

Kathleen McCormack was Robert's wife from 1973 until she went missing in 1982, and although her death was never confirmed, her family is now suing her ex for $100 million!

Kathie's 101-year-old mother Ann McCormack and three sisters have filed a suit against Robert on the grounds that he denied them the right to a proper funeral after committing the alleged murder, and if they win, they'll be taking almost his entire fortune.

Robert has been in jail since March and will most likely be sentenced to five years more years on a gun charge he received after his mini-series aired in February.

Of course, he could face even more time behind bars thanks to his televised murder admission.

Do U see Robert Durst ever being a free man again??

Well this could explain some things.

Earlier this year we thought we had heard the last about the Jodi Arias trial when she was finally sentenced to life in prison for the 2008 murder of her boyfriend Travis Alexander.
