Following a rumored separation, Scarlett Johansson officially filed for divorce from her French husband Romain Dauriac. The filing in the Manhattan Supreme Court states that the marriage is “irretrievably broken.”
Of the proceedings, which will determine custody for their two-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy Dauriac, Johansson told Vanity Fair, “As a devoted mother and private person and with complete awareness that my daughter will one day be old enough to read the news about herself, I would only like to say that I will never, ever be commenting on the dissolution of my marriage.”
Johansson continued, “Out of respect for my desires as a parent and out of respect for all working moms, it is with kindness that I ask other parties involved and the media to do the same. Thank you.”
Meanwhile, speaking to Page Six, Dauriac’s lawyer, Harold Mayerson, insinuated that the father’s fight for full custody will draw from Johansson’s work life, and the travel it requires. “He would like to move to France with his daughter and Ms. Johansson does a lot of traveling,” Mayerson said. “It will be an interesting process.”
