Compton and Rock had a pretty difficult divorce after 18 years of marriage. The couple separated back in 2014 and got divorced two years later. 

The court battle that followed after their divorce was intense and lengthy. Today, they are committed to co-parenting their daughters Lola and Zahra

Besides Lola and Zahra, Rock also fathered a girl named Ntombi from South Africa who lived with his family.

A TUMULTUOUS PAST

Rock, later on, admitted that he had not been the best husband to his wife Campton. He even shared that he thought he could get away with cheating just because he was the provider.

The "Everybody Hates Chris" star ended up taking a break from comedy after the divorce because he felt the need to reset his life since the divorce was pretty stressful. He also said that the custody of their daughters had broken him down and that he wanted to make his way to a better place as a good father and a man. 

Besides Lola and Zahra, Rock also fathered a girl named Ntombi from South Africa who lived with his family. There was no evidence of legal adoption of the child. He and Compton came under fire after their divorce documents were filed. 

According to sources connected to Rock, no legal documents were signed to adopt her and Compton was the one who brought her all the way to the US from South Africa. 

According to "TMZ," Rock did maintain a relationship with his two biological daughters but he did not see Ntombi after splitting up with Compton.
