Chris Rock was spotted on Monday leaving New York City’s Trump International Hotel with his 5-year-old daughter Zahra with wife Malaak Compton-Rock, a nanny and an unidentified little girl.

Her unknown identity prompted tabloid speculation that Rock, 45, who has another daughter, Lola, 7, also with his wife, had fathered the girl out of wedlock.

Tabloids also drew a connection between a 2007 paternity suit filed by a Georgia woman, Kali Bowyer, who claimed Rock was the father of her then-13-year-old son. DNA tests later proved that was not the case.

The Friday night global event features "the biggest bank of faces that you recognize answering the phones," founder and co-host George Clooney tells the media, adding that many of the celebs are taking part "not to be on the show, simply to answer the phones."

Some 140 celebrities have signed up for the two-hour telethon, set to air at 8 p.m. on Friday and stream live on the Web. And the participating group reads like a Who's Who of entertainment, media and politics.

At Monday night's New York City screening of the HBO documentary Good Hair, its star and co-director Chris Rock had nothing but the best to say about Letterman, blackmail scandal or no.

"He's the greatest host in the world," said Rock, 44, at the Cinema Society event sponsored by Target. "I would never make a disparaging comment about David Letterman."

"His girls are a little older than mine," said Rock about President-elect Barack Obama's daughters Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7. "My girls want a playdate. They look at the youngest and they're like, 'We can play with her, Daddy.' We'll see."

While Rock works on making that happen, he made a wish come true for a group of tots from the East Side Settlement House Friday night when he took time out from his busy schedule to read Pinkalicious at the Children's Museum of Manhattan.
