After just a mere two years of marriage, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple announced in joint statement to People. “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."
In reality, the marriage was doomed from the start. In 2012, Martinez and Berry's ex-husband Gabriel Aubry got into a very ugly fight on Thanksgiving Day following Aubry dropping off his and Berry's daughter Nahla. The fight got so bad that both men had to be taken to the hospital because of their injuries. Aubry filed a restraining order on Martinez and obviously increased tension between himself and Berry.
However, the tragedy did not stop there. An LAX airport employee last week sued the couple for $5 million dollars after Martinez supposedly hit the employee with a baby car seat. Though I see this as a highly exaggerated story, maybe Martinez has a violent side?
Though Berry had vowed back in 2007 that she would "never marry again", obviously this has not been the case. This is the third and potential last divorce for Berry. There shouldn't be any legal issues regarding their wealth since the couple did sign a prenup.
Media sources are curious as to what will happen to the couple's 2-year-old son, Maceo-Robert.
