Johnson and Wheeler came to a conclusion relating to the division of money in the Central Family Court in London in February, with the case number showing they had been involved in a dispute relating to money or assets, it added.
The former couple married in 1993 and had four children – Lara Lettice, 26, Milo Arthur, 24, Cassia Peaches, 22, and Theodore Apollo, 20 – before announcing their split in 2018.
Johnson’s fifth child is Stephanie, who was born to art advisor Helen Macintyre in 2009, after the pair had an affair while he was still married to Wheeler. Shortly after their split was announced, he confirmed his relationship with Symonds.
Johnson was married to first wife, Allegra Mostyn-Owen (1987-1993), who he had met during their time at university when they were both 23.
