Some people believe his acting in Lethal Weapon 4 was over the top as well. Stop screaming!
Not a good prenup Rock!
In court filings, Malaak has stated that she spends a majority of her time caring for her two daughters and doing charity work and therefore seeks a payout in accordance with her standard of living. The couple who parted ways after 19 years has a pre-nup but the terms have expired under a sunset provision as per a filing made in Bergen County. The two have agreed to share custody of the girls even though initial reports indicated that Malaak sought sole custody. Chris is said to be taking his role as father seriously and doesn’t want the divorce to have an impact on the kids. He says he’s happy to be only an hour away.

Las Vegas isn’t only famous for The Strip. Sin City is also the divorce capital, notorious for having the highest divorce rate in the country, as reported by Las Vegas Sun. According to divorce attorneys, Nevada was the main state to head for a quick end to a marriage right from the 1930s to the 1960s. State lawmakers had approved of bill that made it easy to get a divorce provided the couple lived in the state for a minimum of six weeks.
The state offered nine grounds for divorce that included adultery, impotency, desertion, and habitual drunkenness, to name a few. However, no proof was required, which was why couples from across the country headed to Nevada and spent their time at ranches for six weeks to fulfill the conditions for divorce. A spouse can file for divorce in the state stating incompatibility, insanity, or having lived separately for more than a year as the statutory cause.
