TEARS: Halle Berry And Olivier Martinez Call It Quits

After two years of marriage and a son Halle Berry and her Frenchman husband Olivier Martinez are finally divorcing.

"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."

This isn't much to many people who have been keeping up with the speculation since early this year that the couple was in trouble. From Halle "losing " her wedding ring to not being seen together in weeks.  But after a few sightings and denials we moved on. Until now.

TMZ is confirming the two are splitting and for Halle's sake (and image) I pray things don't get ugly (a la baby daddy drama).

Halle Berry filed for divorce from Olivier Martinez ... TMZ has learned.
We're told Halle cited irreconcilable differences. As for money, we're told it's not an issue because the couple had a prenup.
A source close to the couple tells us, "They have a personality difference." And the incident at LAX, where Olivier hit a guy with a car seat, exacerbated their conflicts. Olivier got sued for the incident last week and our sources say the couple argued about the suit, and it became a breaking point.
One source tells us the 2 year marriage went into a tailspin a week ago ... to the point each of them had it with the marriage, but Halle filed first.
Another source said, "They're just very, very different people. He's a very macho guy, and things just didn't jive."

While many will deem Halle unstable and crazy for not being able to keep a stable relationship I will say it sounds like this sistah doesn't take SHIT from the men she deals with...NOW.


  • In 1991 the actress claimed she lost eighty percent of her hearing in her left ear due to an     abusive boyfriend, while she never named the abuser she says it was someone well-known in Hollywood. 
  • During that same year her relationship with Wesley Snipes came to an end, the two starred in 1991's Jungle Fever. 
  • In 1993 Halle was sued by a former boyfriend, bankrupt dentist John Ronan, for $80k after he claimed she owed him for helping launch her career (the two dated from 1989 to 1991). 
  • In January 1993 Halle married baseball player David Justice after giving her number to the athlete through a mutually-known reporter. Berry and Justice divorced in 1997, after the actress denied being suicidal and depressed after the split.
  • Halle wed her second husband songwriter Eric Benet in January 2001. They finalized their divorce in January 2005, after Benet underwent treatment for sex addiction in 2002.
  • In November 2005, Berry began dating French Canadian model Gabriel Aubry after meeting at a Versace shoot. She gave birth to their daughter Nahla in 2008 and they split two years later in April 2010, without ever marrying.
  • Soon after her separation from Aubry, Halle met and fell for French actor Olivier Martinez while filming Dark Tide in South Africa.
  • Things moved quickly for the glamorous couple, who confirmed their engagement in March 2012, and were married in France just a year later on July 13, 2013. In October that year, three months after tying the knot, they welcomed a son Maceo.
  • On October 27 2015 Halle and Martinez announced their divorce after just two years of marriage.
