Chris Rock involved in bizarre custody question over South African girl he never adopted: report.

Nearly a year after split from wife Malaak Compton-Rock, the pair continue to hash out the details of their divorce in court – including whether the comedian should support a child who, Malaak says in a new statement to PEOPLE, was raised as their own for years and was “cherished and adored.” In his original divorce filing on Dec. 23 of last year, Rock, 50, stated the couple have just two children. The 7-year-old South African girl who had been living with Chris Rock and his estranged wife Malaak since infancy was staying in the United States on a visitor visa, TMZ reports.

Malaak and Ntombi allegedly went back to South Africa annually to reconnect with the girl’s biological mom, dad, brother and sister before returning to the U.S. She was also repeatedly photographed as part of the Rock family at events such as at the “Madagascar 3” premiere in 2012 and a Hawaiian vacation in March 2014.
