Beautiful Halle Berry is heading to single motherhood and a love lost. Berry and husband of two years, Olivier Martinez announced today that they're getting a divorce. The two share a child, son Maceo. Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez, released a joint statement: '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.' The French actor and Berry had a whirlwind romance. He was very protective of her and wanted the pair to live in France to avoid the hectic Hollywood lifestyle, especially the agressive paparazzi.
Berry's love at the time and father of her daughter, Gabriel Aubry blocked the move to France and the two ended up into a custody war. A war that Aubry ended up becoming victorious. The custody resolution also meant that Berry had to pay Aubry a substantial amount in child support, although they have joint custody. This led to resentment from Berry and her new love at the time Martinez. On Thanksgiving in 2012 Berry ex and father of her daughter, model Gabriel Aubry showed up to her home for their custody exchanged and words were exchanged between Martinez and Aubry. Aubry was brutally beaten. The model filed papers for an increase in support because of the damage done to his face. He claimed that his face is his job and Martinez attacked, led to unemployment. The support amount was increased and the two ended back in court because Berry is fighting to reduce the amount.
Martinez anger towards the paparazzi also led to another attack at the airport. The airport employee sued for 5 million dollars. It was reported by TMZ that "the marriage unraveled in the past week after they hit a 'breaking point. They had been fighting over his January incident at LAX, where Olivier hit airport employee Ronaldo Owens with a car seat, pushing him to the ground. Halle and their son were also there. A $5 million lawsuit was filed in mid October against Halle and Olivier for the attack."
Berry was married to baseball player David Justice from 1992–1997. The pair divorce in 1997.
She met her second husband singer songwriter Eric Benet in January 2001. The two divorce was finalized January 2005, when it was revealed that Benet underwent treatment for sex addiction in 2002. Wishing you the best Halle Berry, through this difficult time.
