Scarlett Johansson files for divorce

News Hour:

Actress Scarlett Johansson filed for divorce from French journalist Romain Dauriac in New York this week and 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 on Wednesday, Dauriac said it was “unfortunate” that Johansson filed for divorce in court “and made our personal differences so public.”

The divorce filing comes after media reports in January that the couple were separated. A lawyer for Dauriac said they both presently live in New York, but not together.
