The New York Postreports that the actress' attorney Judith Poller has issued divorce papers to Dauriac's lawyer Harold Mayerson.
Johansson and Dauriac have been married in a secret ceremony in October previous year, a short time after Scarlett gave birth to their daughter Rose in early September. Since the separation of her parents, effective since the summer of 2016, she lives as much in the one as in the other.
The couple, who announced they were separating in January, have a young daughter, Rose.
Dauriac is not backing down and he plans to fight for custody of his daughter, who he plans to take with him to France. Dauriac's lawyer, Harold Mayerson, spoke to Page Six after the court filing and said that the estranged couple is now in dispute over with whom their daughter should spend time growing up.
It looks like Scarlett Johansson's divorce and custody battle just got a little bit more contentious.
The source said that the creative agency manager recently released a statement, saying that it is indeed unfortunate, especially for their daughter after Johansson filed for divorce.
"I would implore her to withdraw her action promptly and to go back, as uncomfortable as it might be, to the negotiating table", he said.
The source said: "The kid was bouncing back and forth".
She is asking for joint custody of their three-year-old daughter, Rose, but wants the child to live with her. A lawyer for Dauriac said they both live in NY, but not together.
If you were hoping Scarlett Johansson would spill the beans on her divorce in an emotionally charged interview you are out of luck.
Scarlett Johansson was earlier married to Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
