Washington D.C. [U.S.A], September 14 (ANI): It's official!! Scarlett Johansson is single now.
In a joint statement, they confirmed that their divorce has been finalised.
The statement read, "We remain close friends and co-parents with a shared commitment to raising our daughter in a loving and compassionate environment."
The terms of agreement are still unknown at this time.
After quietly separating last summer, Scarlett filed for divorce in March. She said, in the court documents, that her marriage to Romain was "irretrievably broken."
The former couple has a three-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac, and they initially agreed to an informal week-on/week-off custody schedule. But, when Scarlett filed for divorce, she asked for a sole custody.
At that time, the actress said, "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. 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."
Romain's attorney, Hal Mayerson, said his client was in the midst of private negotiations, when Scarlett suddenly filed for divorce and requested sole custody of Rose.
