South African police are reportedly investigating Chris Rock and his estranged wife over a young South African girl who lived with them for seven years and does not appear to have been adopted, according to MailOnline.

Rock and his wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, brought the girl from South Africa to their home in New Jersey in 2008. The girl reportedly came on a tourism visa, not on adoption papers. Now that Rock and Compton-Rock are undergoing a divorce, the status of the girl has come to light. Compton-Rock is reportedly in the process of adopting her.

MailOnline reported that an elite police division in South Africa and the Department of Home Affairs are investigating how and why Rock and Compton-Rock came to take the girl outside of the country. Compton-Rock's lawyer told People that the girl is in the United States legally and with the consent of her birth parents.
