Malaak Compton-Rock wants a big chunk of estranged husband Chris Rock’s $70 million fortune — and she may get it!

Their 20-year marriage managed to outlast the terms of their now-expired prenup.

via NY Post:

The stay-at-home mom married the ex-“Saturday Night Live” star in 1996 after they met at the Essence Awards while she was working in public relations.

She soon gave up her career and became a full-time mother, court papers say.

Compton-Rock, 46, now spends much of her time caring for the couple’s kids — Lola Simone, 13, and Zahra Savannah, 11 — in their posh home in Alpine, NJ, where their neighbors include singer Mary J. Blige and Yankee pitcher CC Sabathia.

Both parties agree their prenup has expired under a sunset clause, meaning they could face a battle over the eight-figure family bank account, a filing in Bergen County court shows.

The papers also say she and Rock, 50, have already agreed to 50-50 child custody.

Compton-Rock spends her free time on the charity circuit. She runs a group called The Angel Rock Project and in 2008 appeared as a judge on the ABC reality show “Oprah’s Big Give,” where she clinked Champagne glasses with actress Vivica A. Fox and “Sopranos” star Lorraine Bracco.

The court filings say Compton-Rock deserves a payout “commensurate with the marital standard of living” because of all her child-rearing and charitable endeavors.

Rock filed for divorce in December 2014 amid rumors he was dating actress Rosario Dawson, who co-starred with him in last year’s film “Top Five,” which he also directed.

He said in a recent interview that the split had left him feeling “sad outta your f-?-king mind.”
