Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits after two years of marriage! Berry who is already paying child support to Gabriel Aubry, the father of her daughter Nahla, might be in for an expensive divorce from Martinez, the father of her son Maceo. File this one under: should’ve just gone to a sperm bank!
The couple released this joint statement on Tuesday:
“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.”
Halle filed divorce papers on Monday under the name “Hal Maria” -using part of her birth name Maria Halle Berry, and requesting joint custody of their 2-year-old son Maceo.
Olivier filed his own divorce papers on Tuesday, also requesting joint custody of their son.
This is the third divorce for Halle Berry as she was previously married to baseball player David Justice for four years from 1993 to 1997, but separated after three years. Singer Eric Benet was Berry’s second husband -they were married in 2001, separated after two years and divorced after four years.
