Playing Scarlett Johansson Files for Divorce From Husband Romain Dauriac

Scarlett Johansson has filed for divorce from her husband, Romain Dauriac.

According to documents obtained by ET, the actress filed on March 7, on the grounds of the marriage being irretrievably broken. She is requesting joint legal custody of their 3-year-old daughter, Rose, and that residential custody be consistent with the child's best interests. The Avengers star also asked for the enforcement of the couple's prenuptial agreement signed on Sept. 24, 2014.

Dauriac's lawyer, Harold Mayerson, spoke to Page Six, who was first to break the news, following the filing and said the couple disagrees over where their daughter should be raised.

"He would like to move to France with his daughter and Ms. Johansson does a lot of traveling," Mayerson told the outlet. "It will be an interesting process."

Johansson addressed the split in a statement released to ET.

"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," the statement read. "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."

Johansson and Dauriac first sparked split rumors in January after the actress stepped out sans ring, though the two continued to make public appearances together. 

ET caught up with Johansson last month, when she stayed mum on the breakup rumors -- but opened up about the difficulties of being a working mom.

"I don't profess to know anything about parenting, anything more than anybody else, [but] being a working mom is an incredible challenge, [and] it's an incredible gift," she said. "I think you always feel a little bit of guilt… If you're at work, you feel like you're missing out on those special moments with your kid. If you're with your kid, you feel like you're not giving enough to your job. It's a balance."

"I have a lot of huge admiration for working moms," Johansson added. "I'm barely, barely holding it together."
