The actress wed the former journalist in 2014.

Scarlett Johansson's husband was “shocked” at the star's divorce filing Tuesday and sees the move as a “pre-emptive strike” in a battle over custody of the couple's toddler daughter, his lawyer said.

Johansson filed for divorce from Romain Dauriac in a New York City court Tuesday, saying the marriage was “irretrievably broken.” The move follows a January announcement that the couple split last summer after less than two years of marriage.

Johansson is asking for joint custody of their daughter, Rose, but also wants the child to live with her.

Dauriac's lawyer, Hal Mayerson, told The Associated Press Wednesday that he and Dauriac were taken aback by the request because he has been the “primary parent” for Rose while Johansson has been involved with her career. Dauriac plans to petition the court to take the child to live with him in his native France, Mayerson said, adding that Johansson will have “access to her daughter any time she wants to come to Paris.”

“Mr. Dauriac is tired of having to run his life and his child's life based on Ms. Johansson's shooting schedule,” Mayerson said.

The divorce filing notes that the couple signed a prenuptial agreement in September 2014, but Mayerson said the pact does not address custody or financial issues regarding their daughter.

Dauriac is a former journalist who now works as a curator of art shows in New York, Mayerson said.

Johansson's representatives and attorneys didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday.

This was Johansson's second marriage. She was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
