Hollywood Couple Divorce & Divide Marital Assets

Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds married in 2008 after a four-month engagement they were "Young Hollywood’s Golden Couple".

Sadly the Hollywood dream of beauty, glitz and glamour was not meant to be and the pair filed for divorce in December, citing irreconcilable differences.

Johansson (the Lost in Translation Actress) and Reynolds (who is to star in this year’s Green Lantern comic-series film adaptation) are currently working out how to divide their marital assets, which include a huge marital property portfolio.

Johansson, 26, is expected to keep the $2.1m (£1.3m) former matrimonial home in New York City in the divorce settlement together with the pair’s $350,000 house in Lafayette, Louisiana.

It's understood that Reynolds, 34, has been hunting for a bachelor pad in New York. However, the Hollywood actor will certainly not be left with nothing as he is expected to keep the $2.9m two-bedroom property in Los Angeles, which the couple purchased last summer.
