Rumor Control: Is Chris Rock The Latest Celebrity To Adopt An African Child?

- By Bossip Staff

Chris Rock was spotted in New York yesterday carrying an unidentified child, setting off rumors that he either had another child out of wedlock or adopted a child. Pop the hood to solve the mystery.

After photographers snapped Rock carrying a toddler out of the Trump International Hotel Page Six immediately starting speculating:

Does Chris Rock have a secret? The comic was spotted Monday coming out of the Trump International Hotel carrying a little girl, about 1 or 2 years old, in his arms. He was with Zahra, 5, the younger of his two daughters with wife Malaak Compton-Rock, and a nanny handling an empty stroller. In 2006, Rock denounced “untrue rumors and lies” that he and Malaak were getting divorced. The following year, an actress filed a paternity suit claiming Rock was the father of her son, but DNA testing proved he wasn’t. Rock’s rep, Leslie Sloane, declined to identify the child he was carrying on Monday or explain why he was with her.

Well it turns out that Rock is NOT the father…

A source close to Chris Rock talked to BET.com exclusively and said the little girl is 2 years old and from South Africa. The Rocks have had temporary custody for six months. In addition, the girl’s grandmother is ill.

Aw Poor Thang! It’s a damn shame when you can’t get spotted doing a good deed without folks digging up paternity suits and marital problems, tsk tsk. Kudos to Malaak and Chris for taking care of this little precious babe. We wish her grandmother a speedy recovery and hope babygirl is adjusting well to the U.S.

Sidenote: Chris if you want to take in any more, we wouldn’t mind being adopted and living up in the Trump ourselves. Thanks

    exactly bklynsis. there are plenty of black youth in these United States of America who either need adoptive or foster parents. God bless everyone who cares enough to adopt but lets try to give OUR kids more opportunities. I’m sure there are some ill grandparents in LA, MD, MI, GA…

    i love it. it’s about time someone other than white gets recognition and kudos for adopting Black children (not to say it doesnt happen, but no one seems to care unless they r white).

    I definitely plan to adopt Black children from all over the world once my own kids are reared well enough, but that’s such a long way off that things will hopefully have turned around for Black people around the world by then. Things are already changing for the better so rapidly

    I’ll tell you why they would rather adopt in Africa or anywhere else overseas—the red tape in America is ridiculous..Although we have 8 children,my husband and I tried to adopt children here in America and man oh man,you have no idea what we went through—Even after background checks,proof of income,physicals,5 references and many other procedures,we were still told it would take at least 2 years to adopt one.Another thing is,many black American people do not sign their rights away that easily,they would rather sign over just temporary custody to someone else,so thats a very big issue surrounding adopting black children in America.Now my good friend,as soon as she and her husband contacted Kenyan officials and flew there and met with them,paid money and all that, they had a little boy in less than 4 months!Its because the issue of poverty makes many of those people give their babies up alot sooner…
