Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac‘s divorce proceedings are off to a messy start.
Dauriac was supposedly blindsided by the filing — and is now asking ScarJo to promptly “withdraw her action” and go back to the “negotiating table” to figure out what to do in regards to their daughter, Rose Dorothy.
He said in a statement:
“It is indeed unfortunate, especially for our daughter, that Scarlett filed in Court and made our personal differences so public. I would implore her to withdraw her action promptly and go back, as uncomfortable as it might be, to the negotiating table. We are the parents of a lovely daughter whom we will continue to co-parent for many years and share her joys and sorrows as only a parent can.”
The French journalist’s lawyer, Hal Mayerson, claimed his client and Miz Johansson were in the middle of private negotiations when she decided to make things official without warning:
“We were shocked that they filed these proceedings in court. We had been negotiating information relevant to their child Rose and also economic issues, so we were stunned when they did this. We’ve told [Johansson and her lawyers] that we would go to any means to try to avoid this.”
