Halle Berry And Olivier Martinez Divorcing
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are divorcing after two years of marriage.
The X-Men star wed Martinez in July 2013, but the actress recently filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences, according to TMZ.
A statement released by the pair read: “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life, and we hope that you respect our, and most importantly our children’s privacy, as we go through this difficult period.”
The couple, which has a prenuptial agreement in place, shares two-year-old son Maceo, and Berry is asking for the custody agreement to be in “the best interests of the child.”
Rumors about an impending split have been circulating online for months, after 49-year-old Berry was repeatedly photographed without her wedding ring.
She also appeared to forget about the stars’ wedding anniversary in July, when she was asked about their plans to celebrate during an interview with E! News.
“Thank you for reminding me,” she said. “I gotta get something fast!”
It’s Berry’s third failed marriage. She was previously wed to former baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet.
She also has a daughter, seven-year-old Nahla, with her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
