Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are reportedly divorcing after two years of marriage. The couple shares 2-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 Berry was repeatedly photographed without her wedding ring.
(CNN) – Halle Berry and husband of two years Olivier Martinez announced on Tuesday that they have split.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the actors told CNN in a joint statement. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of 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, both 49, married in July 2013 in a private ceremony in France. Berry announced in April of that year that she was expecting a baby with Martinez. Their son, Maceo, was born in October.
It was the third marriage for Berry, who had previously been wed to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet. It was the first for Martinez, who had been linked to singer Kylie Minogue. Read more on this story…
