Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez are fighting a lot & close to breaking up, sources claim


Halle Berry & Kate Hudson’s relationship dramas cover the new issue of Star Magazine. Hudson’s near-breakup with Matthew Bellamy has already been established, but we haven’t heard much about Halle in a while, right? She’s been suspiciously quiet. I guess most people were just like, “Eh, she had a baby, there’s probably no drama.” Well, there’s drama. At least according to Star Mag, and now the NYDN.

Let’s do Star first, because I think they broke the story. A story which I have to say has been flat-out denied to Gossip Cop and the NYDN by Halle’s rep. The basic gist of Star’s story is that Halle is “on the brink of a nasty split” from Olivier Martinez and that their marriage is “already in shambles… they have been fighting nonstop…things are really bad.” A source tells Star that Olivier thinks Halle has been spending too much time “working and trying to lose weight and not enough time with their baby.” For Halle’s part, she finds Olivier to be controlling and jealous and she hates that he’s trying to “tell her what to do.” Halle has been working with Goran Visnjic and Olivier is very, very jelly, according to Star. Halle went to some events on Oscar weekend and she wasn’t wearing her wedding ring. DRAMZ. Now the NYDN reports:

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are on the fast track to splitsville, a well-placed source tells Confidenti@l. The duo, who announced their engagement in 2012 and married in July 2013 at Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France, have recently been living separate lives, we hear.

Our Hollywood insiders speculate that the reason for the tension is that the pair have drifted apart because of hectic work schedules. Berry is now shooting her new CBS series, “Extant,” in Los Angeles, while Martinez has been busy working on “Revenge” in a guest-star role that starts Sunday on the hit ABC show.

Once paparazzi darlings, Berry, 47, and Martinez, 48, have not been seen in public together in months. Making whispers of their split even stronger, Berry was not wearing her wedding ring as the special guest at a post-Oscars party. Meanwhile, Martinez was nowhere to be seen.

The formerly PDA-loving couple were last seen in public together on Dec. 7 looking glum as they took in a performance of “The Lion King” at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood. Berry and Martinez have a son, Maceo, born in October 2013. Berry also has a 6-year-old daughter, Nahla, from her relationship with model Gabriel Aubry.

Meanwhile, on the work front, a source who was on the set of “X Men: Days of Future Past,” tells us Berry, who plays Storm, was cut out of every scene but one in post-production. While filming, her role was reduced due to her pregnancy, but it turned out to be more of a cut than was expected.

“She only has one line in the whole movie,” our source says. “They’re not telling her until the movie comes out.”

(They can thank us later.)

Berry’s indecisive flack Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson first told us “no comment” then reached out later asking to change her answer to, “This story is completely untrue.” A rep for Martinez didn’t get back to us.

[From The NYDN]

OMG, that detail about X-Men: Days of Future Past is CRAZY!!! Halle was in Canada filming while pregnant, I can’t believe they cut almost all of her scenes. She’s going to be furious. But if she got paid… maybe it wouldn’t be that big of a deal…?

Anyway, as for Olivier and Halle… I mean, maybe it’s true, maybe not. My gut says that they’re probably having problems and my gut also says that it’s been a long time coming. If they are splitting up… Olivier better watch his ass. We’ve been telling him this whole time that what Halle did to Gabriel Aubry should be viewed as a preview of how she will handle this breakup.

    I don’t think either of them are capable of sustaining a long term relationship.

    • Dubois says:

      Olivier is a major man whore. Halle is majorly crazy. Olivier seems like he can match her on the cray front though.

      • MCraw says:

        Mmhmmm. AND she got cut out of that movie?? Lol she gon go nuts! She was always the weakest link in that movie, I’m just surprised they’re actually going thru with it, especially after that petition to kick her off the cast. Her personal life was always a mess. What a waste of such beauty.

    • Suzy from Ontario says:

      I agree. I would not be surprised to hear of their breakup. She’s clearly got problems and he strikes me as a bully and a creep. Probably the main reason she’s so quiet is that she really looks like a total idiot after running down her daughter’s father so much, and rushing off to marry this douche. To not have it work out makes her look bad and I’m sure she hates that.

      • Olivier lost his lost…what happened? He was in Taking Lives and in Unfaithful, and he was smokin’ hot. Now he just looks tired and old—he’s not that old.

        And yeah, even if they aren’t broken up now–they’ll drag this out. Because it was only a year and a half ago, that Gabriel and Olivier got into that fight during Thanksgiving–not last Thanksgiving but the one before that, and then Halle was pregnant right after. It won’t look good, for her, if she tries to pull that ‘he’s abusive’ card (even if he is, and I’ll feel bad for her then), after he beat the crap out of her first child’s father, and then had a baby with him. Not good at all.

        My mom thinks Halle’s crazy, and the only thing that she reads is the stuff on Yahoo—she said she’s read interviews from all of Halle’s exes who all say she’s crazy. Like she says that when two people separate, it is never one person’s fault. No matter what went on. How does Halle’s exes pick the only crazy woman out of LA, and how does Halle pick the cheaters? I think the only semi decent man she ever had was Gabriel. I never heard anything bad about him until she tried to say that he was racist, after she got a new boyfriend.

      • bluhare says:

        Olivier Martinez in Unfaithful was one of the hottest things I’ve ever seen. My god, he almost made me cry he was so gorgeous.

      • littlestar says:

        Yep, I have been thinking for several years that the #1 problem with all of Halle’s relationships is HALLE. I do think she has some kind of mental issues going on – whenever a relationship ends, she claims abuse or in Olivier’s case, that he was a terrible person (and imo, it seems like he really is a decent guy, far from perfect obviously, but no where near the a-hole Halle has tried to make him out to be). I think she is a very self-involved woman and it is always all about her. She probably can’t see any situation from another person’s perspective. Sadly for her, we are all figuring out that she’s not the perfect woman she claims to be.

        P.S. Still haven’t seen Unfaithful, bit I will definitely add it to my list of movies to watch.

      • Kosmos says:

        Ditto, I agree with you on this….and also, Halle is just not good in the relationship department. I thought that Martinez was a bad choice from the beginning, but when he beat up Gabriel, he really lost my vote big time! Who does that? And then she marries him, okay….sounds like child custody battle #2 is about to ensue.

    • lainey says:

      Girl goes bat-s*** angry when someone DARES to break up with her. but, then again can’t stand him either

  2. dorothy says:

    Halle Berry may be breaking up with another man? Nooooooo, who didn’t see that coming?

    • Atlantapug says:

      Yep. She’s flat out crazy x10. Trying to keep a father from his child?
      She’s petty, nasty and immature.

    • bluhare says:

      I’m going to the store for snacks.

    • Jasmine says:

      I would really like the back story on why Halle Berry is considered to be SO crazy. I get the whole thing with Gabriel Aubrey, but people were saying these rumors before then and I’d never heard anything bad about her until the custody issue with her child. I would like some info, but I just don’t want it to be the standard “this woman can’t keep a man so she must be crazy” excuse.

      • MCraw says:

        I think questions on her judgement started when she did Catwoman, funny enough. The movie was so bad, especially her acting, that it was almost fascinating that THIS was what she did after her oscar. So all of her work and interviews were brought up, some to make the point that even the greatest black actress of our time has very limited choices (because of h’wood racism), others saying she has terrible taste. The people saying she has terrible taste in movies pointed to her personal life as further indication of her terrible taste in everything, including men. Defenders of those men, David Justice and Eric Benet, told horror stories about her that no one ever heard before. So all of this fallout because of a terrible movie she made, she has a baby soon after, gets positive press… And the rest is history!

      • Jasmine says:

        I have to read the stories in defense of David Justice and Eric Benet. I’ve never heard the other side. But thanks for the timeline!!

    • qwerty says:

      It would be so amazing if she did get that permission to move to France when she wanted it, then had this new baby there & now when they split up Oliver would make her stay in France OR leave without their baby. Now THAT would be crazy

  3. booboolarue says:

    More on Goran please!

  4. kelly says:

    How would you describe what she did to Gabriel? They both flung crap at each other.

  5. eliza says:

    STOP THE PRESSES!!!!!! NO WAY????!!! *said no one ever*

  6. Patricia says:

    Oh so he’s being “controlling”, is he? Sounds like a precursor to the abuse allegations that she slings against every one of her exes. She is the only woman I roll my eyes at when they claim abuse, because it’s obviously her publicity tactic for gaining sympathy and explaining her complete inability to sustain a relationship. She must be real hell to live with and I feel so bad for her daughter. Nahla will never know what a healthy relationship looks like.

    • bns says:

      It’s really not hard to believe that Olivier would be abusive.

      • Lucinda says:

        No it’s not. It’s also not hard to believe Halle would be attracted to abusive men. However, she has accused pretty much every ex of hers as being controlling and/or abusive. Either the exes are really good at controlling that side of their personality getting out in the press in every other relationship they have or Halle is crying wolf a lot. I tend to believe the latter. She is one of many celebrities I believe to have Borderline Personality Disorder. Someone with BPD is hell to live with and it often gets worse once a child is born.

      • Amy says:

        Spot on with the remote BPD diagnosis. Exactly what I was thinking as I read this piece. The sad thing about that is that she could get help – living with untreated BPD is really hard, but there is very good treatment and if she were willing to do the work, I bet her life – and her children’s futures – would change for the better.

  7. Jaded says:

    I hope Olivier has a battery of high powered divorce lawyers at the ready….it’s gonna be ugly….

  8. JM says:

    Cue the “he mentally and physically abused me” sob stories Halle shills when her relationships fail. I’m not saying Oliver is an angel, but Ms. Berry has a serious psycho-hose-beast problem. On the flip side, if Halle focuses all her energy destroying Oliver’s name and reputation, Gabriel Aubry will get a much needed break from the cray cray. Can you imagine if we got a pap shot of Gabe & Ollie having a beer together while lamenting the insanity that is life with Halle Berry?!

    • sweetlyn says:

      @JM who said… Can you imagine if we got a pap shot of Gabe & Ollie having a beer together while lamenting the insanity that is life with Halle Berry?!
      That would be epic and captioned picture of the century….

    • Lucinda says:

      Yes, Aubry will absolutely get a break because Olivier will now be the focus of all her rage. Their break up is inevitable in my opinion. It just depends on how aggressive Olivier is at playing the press game. If he plays a good game, Halle will go back to attacking Aubry and probably blame him for the break up of her current marriage. But if Olivier shows any weakness, he will be the target and Aubry will get some peace. I just hope she focuses on one of those to and not her daughter which is also a possibility.

  9. Lori says:

    she only uses them as sperm donors anyway.

  10. mercy says:

    Mmm I don’t trust the Star, but when they haven’t been seen together, not even at an Oscar party, and she’s was seen at the party sans ring, it’s easy to assume something is up, especially given her volatile history (And maybe his, too? I don’t know much about him, other than he used to date Kylie Minogue.) I bet they stick it out for awhile, though, since they’re both working and don’t have to spend a lot of time together.

  11. Sam says:

    No shock. There were reports that he was openly messing with his female assistants when he was dating Halle. It would be gossip fodder if it was just them, but they have a kittle kid together. If they do split, that’s sad solely for the kid. And Halle has a bad habit of being pretty nasty to her exes, which only impacts the kids. She really needs to stop with the dating/marrying. You have two kids, lady. Be thrilled to have them and enjoy them some.

  12. FingerBinger says:

    Whether it’s true or not , I’m not surprised at this story. Halle and Olivier both seem like very unstable people.

  13. Bridget says:

    I am SHOCKED. If these two can’t make it work, who can?

    Though if Olivier is simgle again maybe he’ll give up the dad jeans.

  14. blue marie says:

    If I got paid what she got paid, I wouldn’t give a sh-t if they cut me out of the whole movie. I didn’t know she was working on a show? I might have to check it out. As far as her and Olivier, it doesn’t surprise me, they both have pretty volatile personalities.

  15. Lipsy says:

    Well, Olivier’s like a thug, he won’t take crap from Halle either, I presume… I can see this getting really ugly (violence is wrong on both sides!)

  16. mel2 says:

    I think we all saw this coming.

  17. bns says:

    Olivier is just as much of an asshole as Halle is. People have selective memory when it comes to hot guys.

  18. nomi says:

    I actually do believe that he is controlling, and he obviously has an ability to be abusive. Look what he did to Gabriel.

    Not that I have any sympathy for Halle. She put herself in this position. I was buying this story until the part where the “source” (code for the writer’s ass) claimed they haven’t told Halle they cut her scenes. If it were true, nobody would say that for publication if Halle didn’t already know.

  19. freebunny says:

    Anyway, Olivier is a bit of a gigolo, no?
    I mean where is his career as an actor? He’s mostly known for his various relationships with actress.
    I remember him when he was young and pretty but I wouldn’t want him in my bed now.

  20. MynameisPeaches! says:

    Well, I’m not surprised . They’ve been blinds about him acting like a single man when he’s in Miami. Also wasn’t he shitty to Kylie Minogue at the end of their relationship? Once a cheater always a cheater. Besides he’s a good looking and successful Hollywood actor women to him are like hanging fruit. Poor Halle and the kids.

  21. Miss M says:

    1- The sky is blue
    2- Goran Visnjic is hot
    3- Olivier was hot
    4- Halle and Olivier fighting is no surprise
    5- If this is true, the level of crazy cannot be measured (brace yourselves)

  22. ToodySezHey says:

    ZOMG, I cant believe Halle and Olivier are busting up- said No One.

    I mean, could be true, could be not. But if it is true, no one will be shocked. Halle is nuttier than squirrel poo and has severe relationship/men issues. And Olivier has never met a woman he wouldnt cheat on so…1+1=2 in this case.

    Still, Im halfway rooting for Halle because..lets face it, her career the last decade has been on life support. She is still basically hanging onto A list status because of her name and her great beauty. At least if she has a happy personal life, that will keep her from going completely over the edge.

  23. Karen says:

    The only surprising part of this story is that Halle is going to do a TV series.

  24. Deanne says:

    Can’t wait for her to give Oprah another tell all blaming him for the relationship failing. I wonder how he’ll like being treated like a sperm donor when custody issues are decided? The only common denominator in all of Halle’s failed relationships, is her. Olivier Martinez is well known for his temper and for not being able to keep it in his pants and doesn’t exactly scream great husband material. Too bad another kid is being dragged into the crazy that is Halle and her circus of a personal life.

  25. GeeMoney says:

    Well… should we be surprised? This is what happens when two crazy people get married… nothing but drama.

    I was really hoping that the third time would be the charm for Halle… but I’ll guess we’ll see.

  26. Vee says:

    The poor kids. That’s all I’ve got. Sad.

  27. The Original Mia says:

    I’ll pretend to be shocked that they are having problems. He has a better standing since he was her hubby when the baby was born, but I expect any custody fight to reach nuclear before it’s settled. Olivier will reap what he sowed with Gabriel & Nahla.

  28. Marianne says:

    They also cut Anna Paquin out of the movie. I think its mainly due to the fact that the film majorly takes place during the 70s and not the future. Therefore most of the original cast were never going to have really big parts.

  29. Pumpkin Pie says:

    I have to ask, what is wrong with her, and why?

  30. goddesslove says:

    Halle is not anymore crazy than most females. I think people need her to be “crazy” so they won’t feel she has it all. She is also a type 1 diabetic which makes her prone to mood swings and combativeness. I think her taste in men is what’s cray. She’s always looking to date someone with celebrity like a baseball player, an actor, singer or model. She needs to give up that superficial picture of happiness and find a good man that doesn’t want to compete for the limelight. That’s where she’ll find bliss. I hope she does. #lovehalleberry

  31. Hubbahun says:

    “We’ve been telling him this whole time that what Halle did to Gabriel Aubry should be viewed as a preview of how she will handle this breakup.”

    Yep but it honestly couldn’t happen to a better guy – he’s an absolute sleaze and scumbag, he deserves all he gets.

  32. Jenna says:

    What Halle did to Gabriel Aubry? She has put every ex through the ringer and made herself the victim. Justice beat her, the second husband was a cheater. Now she is leaking stories that this guy is a control freak. After the split look for another smear campaign.

    • Jayna says:

      Justice did beat her and I lived in Atlanta when he was a huge womanizer. One of his girlfriends worked at the sports bar we used to go to. He didn’t even try to hide it.

      The second ex was a huge eff-around. He didn’t deny it. He is mad that he got labeled a sex addict and all that crap, but never denied he was a whore dog who hurt her.

      Gabriel I know nothing about, so no blame on him.

  33. holly hobby says:

    Come on, she wanted sperm donors, not a husband and father to her children. She’s going to do a number on him too. However, after what he did to Gabriel, I don’t think he’s going to go meekly away. She may have met her match in crazy.

    I don’t feel sorry for her. I don’t think she is talented and that Oscar was a fluke.

  34. Helvetica says:

    Darn. I hope this isn’t true but I guess I wouldn’t be surprised. Why does anyone get married anymore in Hollywood? If I were Halle I’d just date the same dude forever and not sign a contract. It’s almost like marriage is the death knell to relationships in Hollyweird (and in real life sometimes, too). It’s always interesting to me how a couple can be together for so long and then break up soon after marrying.

  35. Vanessa says:

    She looks great for being nearly 50. That’s all I got.

  36. TheCountess says:

    I was really hoping these two were in it for the long haul, mostly because I fear for the time they’re roaming free back in the dating population. Ugh.

  37. dahlia1947 says:

    I believe this story. She’s crazy and I can imagine how their fights go! Maybe her throwing things, and threating Olivier. I’m scared for him, but he saw the crazy when he first started dating her, so he shouldn’t be surprised about any weird stuff she may pull. I feel really sorry for the kiddies, especially Nahla because it will affect her more since she’s older. :(

  38. Alexa says:

    Poor Halle. If the comments here are representative of what society feels about her in general, she’s in a bad place. I truly hope she has plenty of loyal friends and family to support her. It’s a rough crowd out here.

  39. taxi says:

    What was her weird excuse back when she was driving on sidewalks & injuring people? She has always gotten more work than her acting ability warrants. Monster’s Ball was a fluke Oscar year in her favor. She’s pretty but no more so than half the women in Hollywood. Her figure is (was?) her best asset.

  40. SamiHami says:

    Funny, I was wondering just last night when they’d break up. They’ve been too quiet for too long. And I have no difficulty whatsoever believing this. She has a definite pattern.

  41. Maritza says:

    I’m only surprised it has lasted this long. She shoul’ve stayed with Gabriel. Oliver has probably been abusive with her, he looks the type. He was so handsome in Unfaithful, he is definitely not aging well.

  42. pnichols says:

    I always got the vibe that she was one craaaaazy girl. hmmm….

  43. Snowpea says:

    I have a theory about crazy, beautiful women.

    My mum was a CBW in the 1960′s and 1970′s; natural blonde waist length hair with cute little straight bangs, tanned, petite with big boobs, cute and adorable looking. Unfortunately, she’s also crazier than a mad hornet and finds it very very difficult to sustain romantic relationships. Her and my dad broke up when I was little.

    She has gone on to be married four times and she has just split up from her last husband. The thing is, all these men have been sane, kind, gentle blokes (but with hero complexes).

    I suspect that when some men are confronted by a woman who has the intoxicating combination of beauty and crazy, it’s like the ultimate throwing down of the gauntlet: “YES I AM THE KNIGHT WHO CAN SAVE THIS FAIR MAIDEN!”

    Well that’s my theory and Im sticking to it. ;)

  44. Nima1 says:

    He obviously didnt learn a thing from her break up with Gabrielle. Just wait for the mud slinging. Berry is a complete nutcase. I feel sorry for Oliver for what is about to come…

  45. LAK says:

    What will surprise is all the people who will profess to be surprised at the vitriolic accusations Halle will lobe at Olivier.

  46. Fan says:

    I’m not surprised. If she could not get along with Gabriel, how much more with this one.

  47. Dirty Martini says:

    Is it bad that I almost hope this is true and I’m laughing about it if it is? Look, I know theres a child involved, and that ain’t good.

    But what she has repeatedly pulled — and especially on the last guy (Gabriel?) and Oliver’s part in that — has caused me to have a major dose of bitchy toward her and O both.

  48. jenniferjustice says:

    I think these two are the subject of a recent item on blind gossip. The item says its because she thought he would stop cheating when he married her but not only does he continue to cheat but he isn’t even discreet about it.

  49. zut alors! says:

    Is it at all possible that these rumors are being put there to force Halle & Olivier to take a pap walk to counter the negativity and show their son in public? Has Maceo-Robert ever been photographed?

  50. Naddie says:

    I’m just sorry for the kids.

  51. panna says:

    Don’t know much about him but I have watched her turn on and badmouth most of the men she has ever been with. Common denominator in all those badly ended relationships. Halle Berry. I would run if she even looked at me if I were a man.

  52. Mingy says:

    I wonder if the next dude she dates will be French. Possibly from Belgium ? Since Quebec and France has been done.

  53. Francis says:

    I know I’m a lone wolf , but I never got the big hype about Halle. I never thought she could act and I never got the hype about her beauty, still don’t. Sorry. I know she’s pretty, yes she’s cute, but I just could never understand or see why she was supposed to be extraordinary in looks or talent. I’ve been told by friends forever that I was crazy for NOT seeing she was All that. Still, Something about her just never connected to me, like the rest of the viewing audiences I suppose. Then when she had that accident and left the scene, I said to myself hmmmm, something is not right with her, but still there she was crying on Diane Sawyer and Oprah about how she lost her memory ,left the scene and went home to sleep. Guess what Everyone believed her,because they still could not see, but I always found something off about her. Then I read her interviews on the run up to Oscar, how no one would do give her jobs because she’s black/woman of color, uhhhh I thought, why is she complaining she’s one of the few women of color constantly acting and getting the big promotional push. She then won the Oscar , I was happy for her, waiting to see what she’d do with that accolade,but guess what, she went right back to complaining about not getting roles and IMO, Halle still can’t act. I don’t know why she got that Oscar, but I think she did do a good job guilting people in the industry. IMO Hollywood is now finding out this chick is crazy and they should have given the Oscar to Angela Bassett when she played Tina. Hahahahaha. Yes Angela can actually act and I get a good vibe on her,whereas with Halle I always felt something was missing or not right with her.
    So now she’s ready to bust up,another marriage, those poor children, I hope she has a stable nanny, because Halle is said to be allegedly cray-cray as batshite.

  54. Cinderella says:

    Halle needs to stop marrying the Romeos.

  55. Francis says:

    Halle needs to find a good shrink and go there 7 days a week and get her crazy butt sorted out.
    It’s not the guys it’s Halle, she’s got issues. I feel sorry for her kids.
