Halle Berry claims she’s not divorcing Olivier Martinez, she just lost her ring


The tabloids have been whispering for a year now that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez’s marriage has been on the rocks as soon as it began, pretty much. Over the past month, those rumors heated up a bit as Halle stepped out several times without her wedding rings (because Ring Watch is so reliable, right?) and even more telling, she totally forgot her wedding anniversary. Radar said last week that Halle and Olivier aren’t even living together and that they’re both pretty over it. Well, Halle has a message for the haters: it’s not she’s forgetting to wear her ring, she just lost it! And she hasn’t bothered replacing it.

Halle Berry divorce rumors have been in high gear, and the evidence fueling the fire is that she’s been ringless … but now we know why, and it has nothing to do with divorce.

Our sources say, Halle lost her engagement ring in Mexico a year-and-a-half ago. She was at the Acapulco International Film Festival in January 2014 where she received the Silver Jaguar Award. Halle says the ring either fell off her hand or she left it on a table and someone took it.

As for why she or hubby Olivier Martinez haven’t replaced it … we’re told it just wasn’t a priority. BUT …. she still regularly wears her gold wedding band.

Our sources say there’s been no discussion about divorce with an attorney. Sorry, fellas … Halle is still off the market.

[From TMZ]

I’m including some photos of Halle clearly wearing her wedding band but not her yellow-gold-and-emerald engagement ring. Not to be rude about a ring that some of you may like, but if a man gave this ring to me, I would “lose” it as well. God, it’s fug.

So, do you believe that Halle merely lost her ring and she and Olivier are so loved up that it just never occurred to them to replace it? Hahaha. I hope Olivier is getting his ducks in a row for what will likely be the most contentious fight since… Halle’s last (and ongoing) custody dispute.

    Maybe she left it with her marbles

  2. Kiddo says:

    She really likes balloon outfits, huh? Anyway, the dog ate my homework, so I tots believe her.

    • Mimz says:


      If i had a ring that fugly i would totes lose it or “get mugged” and swear my gold band is enough proof of my commitment instead of a giant engagement ring yelling “BAD TASTE”.

      • mimif says:

        I think the ring would be prettier if it had more of Lenny Kravitz’s salchicha on it.

      • Kiddo says:

        For no reason, I just keep thinking Toad the wet sprocket.

      • Mimz says:

        Hahahahah yeah Mimif probably, maybe that’s where Halle’s ring went… hell no. I want Halle FAR from my Lenny. Salchicha ring . hahahahahah
        @Kiddo I’m sorry I don’t understand the reference. I googled it is shows it’s a band?

      • Kiddo says:

        Nonsense named band from a Monty Python skit. I don’t understand the reference either, that’s why I said “for no reason”.

    • mimif says:

      I would totes wear both balloon outfits with a Bathrobes By Elba™ coat on top.

  3. Bridget says:

    Despite the marriage and kid, I have never bought that these two were ever madly in love. Just me?

    • Dani L. says:

      Nope. Not just you, Bridget.To me, they’ve always given off cold vibes as a couple. I’m surprised they lasted as long as they did.

      • Bridget says:

        I figured they only got married because of the baby and the fact that she wanted to move to France. Whenever I see pics of the 2 of them together I can practically feel them shrugging and saying “eh, why not”.

    • idsmith says:

      I agree, I think she married him thinking it would help her move Nahla to France. It failed and so…meh, marriage over.

  4. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    ( roll eyes)

  5. Freddy Spaghetti says:

    Good grief. She could have least said it was being cleaned. This divorce is going to be epic.

  6. lisa2 says:

    Their son looks so much like his father (he is a cutie) .. both of her kids look like their fathers..

    I don’t like her hair. I hate the color and length. I miss her shorter do.

  7. kri says:

    She probably lost it in his cheekbone. This is gonna be mess mess messy!

  8. Neah23 says:

    I don’t believe this for a minute, I guess her lost ring is the reason why she couldn’t remember her wedding anniversary. It not a good sign when Halle is smiling and playing nice with the paparazzi.

    • meme says:

      I was shocked to see her smiling with her child. She’s usually seething with rage in public with her kids.

      She has the worst taste in clothes and I give it 6 months before they announce their divorce. There’s too many breakups right now to suit her need for attention.

      • Neah23 says:

        That smile was the first sign for me that $hit is going to hit the fan soon. Girlfriend is laying out the ground work, she has to play it very clever with this one because Oliver will play it just as dirty as she will .

      • notasugarhere says:

        Her smiling while they take pictures of their son is suspicious.

        I was hoping that was a flowy skirt not balloon pants. How do you get in and out of an SUV in such silly pants?

  9. Hollz says:

    That is the ugliest emerald ring I’ve ever seen! Emeralds are my favourite gem, I didn’t know they could look that bad. Maybe it’s the gold? (Silver or platinum all the way! )

  10. OhDear says:

    If she says so.

    This summer’s a good time to announce a separation, just sayin’.

  11. Tippipippi says:

    She’s so stunningly beautiful, she looks years younger than her real age, her skin is perfect.

  12. CL says:

    From TMZ: “Our sources say there’s been no discussion about divorce with an attorney. Sorry, fellas….Halle is still off the market”

    I don’t think there would be that many fellas in line for this particular brand of crazy. Maybe Ben Affleck….

  13. FingerBinger says:

    Her son is adorable. I see he does that squinting thing like Olivier.

  14. BooBooLaRue says:

    The little boy is adorable. And sorry but I love emeralds!

  15. Lola says:

    Check this, she hadnt Lost it, at all.. she still had it in Nicaragua!

  16. Andrea says:

    Ring is ugly and if it really isn’t a priority then well Michael Fassbender just showed up and is waiting for me—NOT! She totally is deflecting. We await your divorce announcement Halle. We know it is coming. There will be one or two others first, but given the season, this will be the least surprising divorce of all.

  17. WindowChair5 says:

    I feel bad for her. She’s so gorgeous but it seems as though she just cannot pick the right guy. Maybe if they do split up, she should be on her own for awhile and focus on kids and career.

    • Chrissy says:

      I really think that it might help for her to be alone for awhile and reflect on the common denominator in all of her failed relationships – Halle. How many failed marriages is this now? Four? She really seems to have issues and should address them before it adversely affects her kids, especially Nahla.

  18. WindowChair5 says:

    Apologies. Double post.

  19. AG-UK says:

    WHAT is she wearing? If those are drop crouch just no, grown people should never be in those, reminds me of those beach side Spanish towns all the girls seem to wear those.

  20. Sarah says:

    Parsing the words here: “It just wasn’t a priority” to replace the ring. Meaning…..why replace a ring when you are divorcing? Or better yet – I’ve already given it back to Olivier as part of our divorce settlement.

    “There has been no discussion of divorce WITH AN ATTORNEY.” Meaning…..there HAS been discussion of a divorce between the two of them. Or – they have been talking to attorneys about a property settlement/custody arrangement but not a divorce specifically.

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    I LOVE that gold and emerald engagement ring, but I’m a sucker for square cut and for bright colours.

    Must be nice to live in a world where you can lose an emerald ring and not be crying and tearing your house apart to find it.

    • bcgirl says:

      me too! The color of that emerald is/was divine.
      With the yellow gold it looked awesome on her.

    • Dena says:

      Poor Halle. She probably threw it at Oliver in a fit of rage while the two were arguing.

      I love the ring. I think it’s gorgeous.

  22. jwoolman says:

    It wasn’t insured?!?

  23. guest says:

    yeah that ring was a cheap piece of crap,halle probably threw that green piece of glass in the garbage; no i do nt believe halle lost her ring, plus that reason explains nothing for olivier not being seen with halle berry but only three time since maceo was born, and maceo is 22 months now so being seen 3 times in 22 months, not going out for your so called wedding anniversary, and in fact forgetting the anniversary and when the news reporter asked halle about, what she was going to buy the look on hales face was priceless, because halle completely forgot then halle said she gotta rush quick and get something quick if a man did not plan a celebration for my wedding anniversary i would divorce him, its the mans job to remember too not jus the female, halle is full of bull halle is still trying to cover up her lost relationship anybody can see olivier and halle berry are no longer a couple, and have not been a couple since maceos birth; yeah is why was that ugly ring not insured, that is really weird, i will tell you why becacause it only coa about 200 euro to make, i have seen gorgious emerald rings but this is a ring that you give someone who you do not want to give a diamond to because the female does not deserve a diamonf reday made famoly aplus three divorces already, halle probbably asked olivier to by her a emerald and diamond ring thinking she was going to get a harry winston but got garbage instead sorry the ring is just plain cheap

  24. guest says:

    the ring was not insured because it looked like it probably cost about 200 euro to create
