Hollywood beauty Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez have officially filed for divorce after two years of togetherness. The couple have filed the petition for divorce on Monday, citing irreconcilable differences. The ‘Catwoman’ star and her soon to be ex husband released a public statement stating that both of them have decided to move forward with love and respect for one another, and with shared focus for what is best for their 2-year-old son Maceo-Robert. While it is the first divorce for Martinez, this is Berry’s third divorce.
According to the reports the duo had signed a prenuptial agreement before marriage according to which all of Halle Berry‘s property and wealth will remain with her. The 49-year-old actress is not asking for any spousal support, but aims to seek joint sharing of their son Maceo-Robert’s custody. But Olivier Martinez has expressed that he wants to discuss the matter of spousal support after a while. The duo has agreed on sharing the custody as they think that would be in the best interest of their kid.
Reports suggest that the reason of split was some unavoidable arguments between the couple where Olivier Martinez was not happy about the living conditions. Martinez was not all that keen about living in Los Angeles all the time where the duo were living together since their marriage. On the other hand Halle Berry was still fighting the ongoing case with Gabriel Aubry with whom she has a daughter Nahla. Berry had been busy fighting the custodial case and all of this was too much for the couple to cope up with.
Halle Berry has previously been married to baseball player David Justice in 1993 and singer Eric Bent in 2001. The actress met Martinez on the sets of the film ‘Dark Tides’ in the year 2010. After dating for couple of years, the duo got married on July 13, 2013 and their son was born on October 5, 2013.
