Scarlett Johansson Reunites with Ex Romain Dauriac
Is Scarlett Johansson ready to play nice with her ex?
The Ghost in the Shell star certainly didn’t look like she had bad blood with her estranged husband, Romain Dauriac, when she posed for a photo with the French journalist on Wednesday (Apr. 5, 2017). Both clad in black, the two gave a slight smile for the camera at cocktail reception at 53W53 Gallery in New York City.
It was unclear if the encounter was purely coincidental, or if the husband-and-wife duo attended the event together.
The former couple have been embroiled in a custody battle over their 3-year-old daughter, Rose. Johansson, 32, reportedly asked a judge to award her primary custody in her divorce filing this March, while Dauriac argued that their child shouldn’t be with her mother so much as the actress is often required to travel for work.
“It is indeed unfortunate, especially for our daughter, that Scarlett filed in court and made our personal differences so public,” he said in a statement. “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.”
Johansson and Dauriac wed in 2014. Aside from their marriage, the two are also partners in business as co-owners of the popcorn brand, Yummy Pop.
