Malaak released a statement to People magazine Sunday saying,

“After much contemplation and 19 years of marriage, Chris and I have decided to go our separate ways.”

She adds, “While recognizing that this is a significant change, my children remain at the center of my life and their well-being is my top priority.”

Chris’ lawyer confirmed he’s already filed docs. TMZ broke the story … back in 2006 Chris had divorce papers drawn up, but never filed once he and Malaak worked things out.

The 49-year-old comedian and his wife got married in 1996. They have two daughters — 12-year-old Lola Simone and 10-year-old Zahra Savannah.
