Scarlett Johansson’s facing a seriously messy custody battle!

We thought it was too good to be true!

Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauriac have been keeping things very amicable since announcing their split (some might argue too amicable) but that could all be about to change!

It’s being reported that ScarJo is facing a seriously messy custody battle, as she filed for primary custody of their 2-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy… and Romain is prepared to fight her for it! Yikes!

Romain’s lawyers have argued that their daughter will be better off living with her father in France, rather than travelling the world with her mother…

“He plans to petition the court to allow him and his daughter to move to France,” his lawyer said in a statement.

“He believes that her schedule makes it impossible for her to have physical custody – unless she intends to have her children raised by nannies and helpers.”

We have no idea what is currently going through Scarlett’s head or what her next move might be, as she has promised to stay very tight-lipped about the situation…

“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,” Scarlett said in a statement.

“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.”

We have a sneaky suspicion this could go on for quite a while.

We’ll keep you posted!
