News outlets have been outpouring details about Scarlett Johansson and Romain Dauric’s divorce.

After she released a statement responding to reports she’d filed for divorce from the father of her 2-year old daughter, saying she would “never, ever comment” on the split, Romain responded with a statement of his own, telling E! News:

“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 to 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.”

Court records are always public, and according to reports, Scarlett and Romain’s disagreement lies in the custody agreement.

The Post exclusively reported that Scarlett filed for divorce this week and is seeking primary custody of Rose, but Romain, who is a journalist and originally from France, wants to full custody as well and wants to move her to Paris.

“I will never, ever be commenting on the dissolution of my marriage,” she said to Page Six. “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”

Scarlett had enlisted the Manhattan Supreme Court to help the process of divorce, even though Romain’s lawyers said she and him were supposed to handle it privately.

In Playboy’s recent issue, which hit stands just before their divorce, Scarlett praised Romain, stating: “[Moving from Paris to New York] was a huge transition for both of us, and certainly for him—moving here, committing to the States. But I think my husband has embraced America, and New York in particular, in this really endearing way. I guess now we’re kind of committed to living here because with our daughter we have to commit to someplace.”
