Although the news of Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez’s split just broke, the couple have actually been living separately for about a year now, an insider spilled to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Find out more about the year they’ve been apart.
Halle Berry, 49, has been living “in the family home” without Olivier Martinez, 49, for a year now, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. The couple, whose split became public on October 27, knew “they were on the outs” for a while — so sad.
“Olivier and Halle haven’t lived under the same roof for about a year,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They have been living separate lives, she has been in the family home, while he has been renting in an upscale apartment.”
“For the past year, both Olivier and Halle have tried to make it work for the sake of her first born, Nahla, who is very fond of Olivier and he doted on her,” the insider went on. “To make the transition easier for Nahla, and to seem like nothing was happening even though they were on the outs, they organized family days to make it appear to Nahla that a split wouldn’t change how often she’d see Olivier. And that’s the plan for the future, Halle won’t limit Olivier‘s time with Nahla, and obviously their son Maceo, moving forward.”
The news of their split came on October 27. “They are keeping it amicable now,” People reports. “She is okay.” The couple began dating after meeting 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.
