Oh no — such sad news for Halle Berry! The actress and her husband of more than two years, Olivier Martinez, are getting a divorce. Sadly, this marks the third failed marriage for Halle.
“They are keeping it amicable now,” People reports. “She is okay.” The pair met on the set of the movie Dark Tide in 2010, and confirmed their engagement two years later in March of 2012. They tied the knot in France while she was pregnant with their son, and Halle gave birth in Oct. 2013.
Unfortunately, the 49-year-old hasn’t had the best of luck in the romance department — she’s already been divorced twice! She called it quits from David Justice in Feb. 1996, just three years after they tied the knot, and the divorce was finalized in June of the next year. She then married Eric Benet in Jan. 2001, but they separated in Oct. 2003, and the split was made official in Jan. 2005.
Halle also had a longterm relationship with Gabriel Aubry from 2005-2010, and they welcomed a daughter together, Nahla, in 2008. Things turned majorly sour between these two once they separated, though, and their custody battle waged on until Nov. 2012, when they finally reached an amicable agreement in court. Interestingly, Gabriel and Olivier actually got into a pretty intense physical battle over Thanksgiving weekend in 2012, which left them both injured.
Olivier and Halle were photographed together as recently as August, and things looked to be going well when they were spotted packing on the PDA during a breakfast date at that time. HollywoodLife.com has reached out to Halle’s rep for comment about this shocking split news.
