The Black Keys star Dan Auerbach has reached a settlement with his estranged wife, who will receive more than $5 million (£3.3 million) - and a lock of Bob Dylan's hair. The musician has been embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with Stephanie Gonis following their split earlier this year (13). Gonis has claimed Auerbach was abusive throughout their marriage, while the rocker alleged she had tried to commit suicide in front of their daughter Sadie. Auerbach has been granted temporary custody of the little girl as Gonis receives treatment for her personal issues, but the warring exes have managed to arrange a financial agreement ahead of their official divorce. Gonis will get a lump sum of $5 million, as well as a lock of folk legend Dylan's hair. According to website TMZ.com, the odd item is listed among the settlement, although the report provides no further details of how the couple came into possession of the hair.
