Scarlett Johansson Asks for Privacy Amid Custody Battle, Her Ex's Lawyer Says It's Impossible


The 'Rough Night' actress asks 'other parties involved' to refrain themselves from making any comment on the matter, but the attorney representing her estranged husband fires back at her.

Scarlett Johansson breaks her silence after her divorce from Romain Dauriac and custody battle of their daughter made headlines. "He would like to move to France with his daughter and Ms. Johansson does a lot of traveling," his lawyer Harold Mayerson previously said. "It will be an interesting process."

In response, ScarJo asks her estranged husband and his lawyer to refrain themselves from making any comment on the court battle. "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," she says. "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."

Dauriac's lawyer defends himself and his client, "We never had any intention of filing papers, we did not want to make it a public spectacle. Now she or her lawyers or her handlers have now made it a public spectacle." He continues in statement to USA Today, "She filed, so for her to ask for privacy now seems somewhat oxymoronic to me - it makes no sense. We were negotiating in good faith but whatever Scarlett wanted, Scarlett wasn't getting (in the negotiations), so she blindsided us. We were happy to continue negotiating. It's not in her daughter's interest to file in the public court system."

In separate comments to E! News, the lawyer claims Dauriac "is the primary custodial parent." The attorney reveals, "He wants her to be involved with her daughter, desperately, but you can't have schedules switching all the time. How do you explain that to a child? She's allowed to have her career, and there will be a certain degree of flexibility - but not to suit her schedule or Mr. Dauriac's. It will be one that suits the child."

"Under the laws of the United States, thankfully men and women are treated the same in reference to custody," he adds. "There are many cases where the fathers do a lot of traveling, and if they were to raise this same issue, you would you laugh. You can't hide behind a suit or a dress - it's what's in the best interest of the child."
