His ex-wife Stephanie Gonis gets an item labeled as 'Bob Dylan hair,' their Toyota SUV and $5 million.
Estranged couple Dan Auerbach and Stephanie Gonis have finally arrived at a divorce settlement earlier this week in Tennessee, half a year after they were first reported to have split back in February. Based on the terms of the agreement, The Black Keys' vocalist will have to turn over to his ex-wife $5 million, their 2012 Toyota Highlander and one of his prized possessions tagged as "Bob Dylan hair."
There was no information how a thicket of the legendary rock singer's frizzy mane, if it was indeed his, got into Auerbach's hands, but it appears to be of some value to Gonis for it to be included in the divorce settlement. Although it's quite an odd item to have in the arrangement that asks for cash and other substantial property, it's not the first time that a celebrity has fought to keep very particular assets that belong to his/her former partner.
Another thing that the divorced couple will need to share is their 4-year-old daughter Sadie Little. Early this month, a judge granted temporary custody over their only child to Auerbach, with Gonis allowed to make supervised visits.
Word about the divorce broke out during the February 10 Grammy Awards, when Gonis did not attend with Auerbach, who was also noticeably not wearing his wedding ring. Their divorce took an ugly turn in August when Auerbach accused that Gonis tried to commit suicide twice and attempted to burn their house down, which Gonis retaliated with revelations of spousal abuse.
