After 25 years of marriage, Dakota and Elle Fanning's parents have finalized their divorce.


Heather and Steven Fanning, both 51, are now officially divorced. The duo’s split was confirmed on August 24, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

The documents stated: “Irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties which led to the irremediable breakdown of the marriage, making it impossible for the parties to live together as husband and wife."

The majority of the details for the final judgment between Heather and Steven have remained unknown because they opted for a private "marital settlement agreement."

The former couple both waived the right to collect spousal support, according to the court documents. However, it's unclear if anything was paid or transferred by either side as part of their private agreements.

The only guarantee is that they are off the hook for child support, as Dakota is 24 years old and Elle is 20.

Before the judge officially declared them single, Steven had filed for divorce twice against Heather, as reported by The Blast.

In 2016, he filed divorce, but one month later, they reconciled and dismissed the case before he filed for the second time in January.


Dakota and Elle have yet to address their parents’ divorce publicly. The young stars have been just as busy as their parents.

Elle is currently filming "Maleficent 2," the sequel to her blockbuster 2014 movie with Angelina Jolie. She will be reprising her role as Princess Aurora.

Dakota, on the other hand, is playing Manson disciple Squeaky Fromme in Quentin Tarantino‘s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” She will also appear on TNT’s "The Alienist," which premiered in January.


Dakota once told People: “I think what drew me to this character that I play, she’s the first female to work for the police department that has more of a role than someone who cleans.”

“And it’s funny because the time that it takes place, it’s kind of coming up on a new age for America and things are changing [like they are now], so it’s like getting to do the 1896 version of that,” she added.
