Actress Scarlett Johansson is officially single again after finalising her divorce from Romain Dauriac.

The Avengers star quietly separated from the French journalist-turned-advertising executive last summer and she filed to end their two-year marriage in March.

At the time, Scarlett requested primary custody of the former couple's young daughter, Rose Dorothy, a move Romain objected to as he publicly urged his ex to "withdraw" her demand and return to the "negotiating table" so they could keep their divorce and custody battle as private as possible.

By April, the pair appeared to be back on good terms as Romain joined Scarlett at an art gallery event in New York, where they happily posed for photos. Scarlett has since moved on to romance comedian Colin Jost, and now she will be able to date freely after signing off on her divorce.

According to the New York Post's Page Six column, representatives for the actress and Romain submitted a sealed settlement in Manhattan Supreme Court on Tuesday and in a joint statement issued to E! News, the former couple vows to work together moving forward for the sake of its only child.

The statement reads: "We remain close friends and co-parents with a shared commitment to raising our daughter in a loving and compassionate environment."

Scarlett and Romain wed in secret in October, 2014, weeks after welcoming little Rose. It's the actress' second divorce - she was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011. He has since gone on to wed Blake Lively, the mother of his two young daughters.
