Chris Rock enjoys getaway with his 'new girlfriend'

CHRIS Rock has escaped to St. Barts with his "new girlfriend".

The 49-year-old comedian, who recently filed for divorce from Malaak Compton-Rock after almost 20-years of marriage, and his mysterious new woman have been staying on the luxury yacht of Hollywood financier Vivi Nevo, according to the New York Post's Page Six column.

The couple have been joined on board the yacht by a host of famous faces, including Twitter founder Jack Dorsey and music producer Rick Rubin.

News of Chris' getaway follows a report suggesting he wasn't happy in his marriage for some time.

The 'Top Five' star - who has Lola, 12, and Zahra, 10, with Malaak, a 45-year-old philanthropist - decided to end their romance because he no longer felt fulfiled.

What's more, gossip website TMZ.com claimed Chris wants a "simple divorce" and for there to be no third party involved.

The insider also dismissed suggestions that the split is already contentious.

Chris - who has starred in popular films like 'Dogma' and 'Grown Ups' - wants joint legal and physical custody of his children.

A friend said: "He lives for his children. They come first."
