Ryan Reynolds officially filed for divorce from Scarlett Johansson on Thursday, according to TMZ.com. Scarlett Johansson immediately responded to the divorce petition, according to OK Magazine. The celebrity couple announced their separation on December 14, just last week? What’s the big hurry to divorce?
Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds are not seeking spousal support in the divorce action. TMZ.com reports that neither of the actors signed a prenuptial agreement, and it is “assumed that the duo will split the assets acquired during their marriage equally as community property.”PEOPLE magazine’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive has hired celebrity attorney Laura Wasser, while Scarlett Johansson is using attorney Lynn Soodik to represent her in the divorce.
According to reports in the media, Ryan Reynolds is taking the break-up hard while Johansson is less upset. Ryan Reynolds told a source earlier this week that Scarlett “treated him badly” and that the actress was “disconnected and disaffected” about the split.
Ryan shouldn’t fret. There were literally hundreds of Babble Famecrawler readers who volunteered to comfort the actor in his time of need, when I asked readers: Who Would You Rather Comfort: Ryan Reynolds or Zac Efron?
