Chris Rock's Divorce Isn't Exactly Surprising If You've Seen His Stand-Up

Earlier this week, Chris Rock confirmed that he and wife Malaak were divorcing after 19 years of marriage. As some were quick to point out, the news wasn't exactly shocking if you've ever seen Rock perform stand-up comedy. The guy has never really seemed too fond of married life.

Oof.
