Chris Rock has reportedly not seen the seven-year-old girl who has lived with him since infancy in a year, following the divorce from estranged wife Malaak.
TMZ reports that back in 2008, the family took in a six-month-old child named Ntombi from South Africa, who lived in their house but was never officially adopted.
The site adds that the girl’s parents were from South Africa, although it is not known why she was living with the Rock family. She was apparently In the country on a “pleasure” Visa, which meant she would have to return back to South Africa at least once a year to fill out paperwork.
They add that when Chris, 50, and Malaak began divorce proceedings, Chris maintained contact with his two biological daughters, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Zahra, but not Ntombi. Now, ‘South African officials opened an investigation to determine how the child went from their country to the U.S, when there was no evidence of a legal adoption.
Chris’ spokesperson told TMZ he does not have an adopted child.
