Chris Rock’s estranged wife Malaak Compton-Rock is NOT “out for revenge” as the couple’s divorce proceedings get underway, despite a report claiming she’s furious over the comedian’s “close relationship” with his Top Five co-star Rosario Dawson.

Gossip Cop exclusively busted the Rock-Dawson rumor last week when the unreliable webloid MediaTakeOut spread it. Now Star is digging through MTO’s trash, looking for a story, and thinks Rock’s relationship with Dawson is to “blame” for his divorce turning “ugly.”

According to Star, Rock and Compton-Rock’s split has “gone from quietly amicable to downright dirty.” The tabloid seems confused by Rock’s casting of Dawson as his love interest in Top Five, believing that it had something to do with his marriage coming to an end. It’s simply NOT TRUE. Reps for both Rock and Dawson have repeatedly said there’s no real-life romance, and the tabloids still don’t have any proof of one. But it’s sensational, so it sells.

As Gossip Cop reported last month, Rock and Compton-Rock split after nearly two decades of marriage. In a statement released by Compton-Rock, she said, “After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways,” adding, “While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority.”
