Scarlett Johansson and her estranged husband Romain Dauriac put on a united front as they enjoyed a night out on Wednesday. The friendly exes stepped out for the Singular Object Art Opening in New York, showing no signs of their current divorce situation. Scarlett flashed a smile at the camera, looking elegant in an all-black outfit while Romain posed for photos next to his estranged wife.
The couple are believed to have split last summer, with Scarlett reportedly initiating the end of their two-year marriage. However their break-up only came to light in January. Since then, Scarlett, 32, and French journalist Romain have made several joint appearances. On the same day that their split was announced, the pair attended an art show together, leaving some fans confused.

It seems the divorce is going ahead though, as Scarlett's attorney Judith Poller served divorce filings to Romain's lawyer, Hal Mayerson, in March. In the legal papers, Scarlett requested primary physical custody of her and Romain's young daughter Rose Dorothy.
Romain responded by asking his ex to withdraw the filing and to "go back to the negotiating table". In a statement to People, he said: "It is indeed unfortunate, especially for our daughter, that Scarlett filed in court and made our personal differences so public. 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."

Scarlett and Romain were first linked in October 2012, and by the following September, the Frenchman had proposed with a beautiful vintage Art Deco style engagement ring. They wed in secret in October 2014, shortly after welcoming their little girl.
