Scarlett Johansson and her French husband, Romain Dauriac, are now divorced, according to a joint statement they issued Wednesday. 

After the New York Post and the New York Daily News reported that the two had quietly reached a settlement over their split and custody of their toddler daughter, Rose, the couple's publicist sent a statement to USA TODAY:

"We remain close friends and co-parents with a shared commitment to raising our daughter in a loving and compassionate environment," the statement said. 

Johansson, 32, filed for divorce from Dauriac, 34, in New York in March after two years of marriage, declaring the union "irretrievably broken."

The split involved a dispute over who would have primary custody of their 2-year-old and where she would live, given that Dauriac wanted to live in Paris and Johansson traveled a good deal due to the demands of her film career.

While their lawyers negotiated behind closed doors, Johansson issued a statement declaring she would not be commenting and demanding privacy.


Scarlett Johansson has filed for divorce in a New York City court. The move follows a January announcement that the couple split last summer after less than two years of marriage.

Dauriac issued his own statement deploring that Johansson had made the matter public, and asking that she withdraw her divorce action and return to the negotiating table.

His lawyer, Harold Mayerson, complained to USA TODAY that Johansson or her lawyers had "made it a public spectacle."

Five months later, all that seems to have been resolved, although the details were not revealed and the legal documents were sealed. Neither Mayerson nor Judith Poller, Johansson's lawyer, responded to requests for comment. 

Johansson and Dauriac married in October 2014, in Montana, and separated the summer of 2016. Previously, she was married to Ryan Reynolds, from 2008 until their divorce in 2011.
