Scarlett Johannson Files For Divorce From Romain Dauriac: ‘Monogamy Isn’t Natural’

Scarlett Johannson has officially filed for divorce from Romain Dauriac after two years of marriage.

The 32-year old reportedly split from her French lover last summer, but is now finally going through with divorce proceedings.

The couple have a three-year old daughter together – Rose Dorothy – with the pair now said to be undergoing a custody battle following their breakup.

The New York Post have revealed that Johansson’s attorney Judith Poller met with Dauriac’s lawyer on Tuesday to hand over divorce papers.

Romain allegedly wants to move back to his home country France and bring daughter Rose with him, however the Hollywood actress wants her little girl to stay in the U.S with her.

Duariac’s lawyer, Henry Mayerson, told The NY Post, 

[Romain] would like to move to France with his daughter and Ms. Johansson does a lot of traveling. It will be an interesting process.


The former couple first started dating back in 2012, and got married two years later in a small ceremony in Montana on October 1, 2014 after their daughter was born.

The Lucy actress was spotted without her wedding ring on more than one occasion last year, sparking the possibility that things weren’t well between the husband and wife.

Scarlett opened up to Playboy magazine last month about their split.

I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing. I don’t think it’s natural to be a monogamous person. I might be skewered for that, but I think it’s work. It’s a lot of work. And the fact that it is such work for so many people – for everyone – the fact of that proves that it is not a natural thing.

It seems monogamy isn’t something that Johannson agrees with.

This is the blonde’s second divorce, with her ex-hubbie Ryan Reynolds separating from her in 2010 and finalising a divorce settlement the following year.

The much-loved movie star is currently filming for upcoming roles in Avengers: Infinity War and Isle of Dogs.
