ALPINE, N.J. -- Separated since 2014, longtime Alpine couple Chris Rock and his wife of 20 years, Malaak Compton, were divorced on Monday.

A judge in the Family Division of Superior Court in Hackensack sealed the agreement after finalizing it, according to multiple reports.

However, E!News claimed that Rock, 51, in his divorce filing accused Compton of keeping him from their two daughters -- Lola, 14, and Zahra, 12 -- away from him.

Compton, 47, through her lawyer, called the comedian's claim untrue and "easily disproved."

The couple also have had an 8-year-old girl from South Africa living with them since she was under a year old, according to media reports. Comton supports an orphan rescue fund there.

The Rocks bought their home in 2001 for $3 million and had retained joint ownership, real estate records show.

Rock has been dating “Arrow” actress Megalyn Echikunwoke for nearly a year , the New York Post reported.
