Personal life, ex-wife Scarlett Johansson
Romain met Scarlett Johansson in October 2012 on a lunch date in New York. The two were introduced by their mutual tattoo and graffiti artist, Fuzi Uvtpk. Since Scarlett loves tattoos and has many on her body, she and Romain immediately found common interests and themes to discuss. It is known that Romain spoke little English when he met Scarlett, but the force that drew them together was stronger than any language barrier. In November 2012, the couple officially revealed the fact of their relationship to the press; it wasn’t long after Scarlett broke up with Nate Naylor, a freelance art director, who she dated for less than a year.
In September 2013, at the 70th annual Venice Film Festival, Scarlett was seen wearing a vintage Art Deco style ring, which she later characterized as “a involvement asterisk’. In her 2014 interview with People, Scarlett shared her feelings: “I love his brain more than anything <…> he does all the sweet gestures for me. He is a gentleman” – the actress was happy to finally announce the upcoming wedding.

However, in January 2017, it emerged that Scarlett and Romain no longer live together and separated at the end of 2016.
Scarlett filed for divorce, which reportedly came as a “shock” to Romain, as his attorney, Hal Mayerson, called Johansson’s actions a “pre-emptive strike” in the upcoming custody battle for their daughter, Rose Dorothy. Mayerson too mention that he considered Romain to be “the primary parent” to Rose, as Scarlett Johansson was almost always busy filming, working and promoting her cinematography projects and hardly spent any quality time with her child.
In December 2017, Scarlett officially announced her new relationship with Colin Jost, a co-head writer on the “Saturday Night Live” team; he is also a co-host of “Weekend Update”. The pair got engaged in May 2019 – no updates on Romain’s current relationship status have been revealed.
