Scarlett Johansson files for divorce, requests custody of daughter
American actress Scarlett Johansson has filed for divorce from French journalist Romain Dauriac in New York this week. The actress asked for full custody of the couple’s daughter, as her estranged husband asked her to return to the negotiating table.
Johansson, 32, filed for divorce in New York Supreme Court on Tuesday on grounds of “the marriage being irretrievably broken.” She requested joint legal custody and residential custody of the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Rose, according to court documents.
The couple married in 2014. The court documents ask for the enforcement of a prenuptial agreement dated Sept. 24, 2014.
In a statement Dauriac said it was “unfortunate” that Johansson filed for divorce in court “and made our personal differences so public.”
“I would implore her to withdraw her action promptly and to go back, as uncomfortable as it might be, to the negotiating table,” he said.
This is the second marriage for “Captain America” star Johansson, who was married to “Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
