Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez are divorcing after two years of marriage


I’ll take “Things That Are Not Shocking for $600, Alex.” Seriously, this gossip has been percolating for the better part of a year. Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are over. They were over very soon after their 2013 wedding. Look at our archives – even though Halle and Olivier tried to do the Affleck-Garner happy-family pap strolls, many sources have insisted that the divorce is coming. And here it is.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits after more than two years of marriage.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a 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.”

A source tells PEOPLE that the relationship had “run its course,” adding: “They are keeping it amicable now. She is okay.”

Berry and Martinez met in 2010 on the set of Dark Tide. Three years later, the pregnant bride and her groom tied the knot on July 13, 2013, at the rustic Chateau des Conde in his native France.

“She has called him ‘The One,’ ” Sophie Dulac, the president of the Champs-Elysées Film Festival, said at the time. “She’s said she never expected to meet this Frenchman, to fall in love like she has.”

On Oct. 5, 2013, Berry and Martinez welcomed son Maceo-Robert.

Berry is also mom to 7-year-old daughter Nahla Ariela with her ex-boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry. Berry and Aubrey have been locked in a custody battle since their split in 2010.

[From People]

The question now is… how bad is this divorce going to get? Considering all of the crap Halle threw at Gabriel Aubry and THEY WEREN’T EVEN MARRIED, how crazy is this going to get? If Halle thought Gabriel was trying to get her money, just wait until Olivier asks for spousal support and child support. Just wait until he puts up a fight over custody for Maceo. Oh, this is going to be painful.

Update: Sources tell TMZ that Olivier was just too “macho” and all of that. Sources insist that Halle is going to want a quick divorce. I’ll believe that when I see it.

    Why’d she get married if she doesn’t want to part with money? I mean, she didn’t get married to the other guy she had a kid with, so why marry this one either?

    I think someone like Kate Winslet genuinely likes being married (hence, the 3 marriages), but I never get that kind of vibe from Halle.

    • tracking says:

      I think she romanticizes it, and the idea of a happy family. But she just has the worst taste in men.

      • EN says:

        > I think she romanticizes it, and the idea of a happy family. But she just has the worst taste in men.

        I don’t think it is all men. I see nothing wrong with Aubry, I think it is her.

      • funcakes says:

        Halle was in a heated custody battle with Gabriel and wanted to leave for France with Olivier. The judge told her, f$ck no.
        Olivier was a pawn for Halle in her custody battle. They were going back and fourth about who is the stable parent so Halle went for the husband and new baby angle.

      • tracking says:

        I hadn’t thought about the strategy piece. That makes sense.

      • herewego says:

        Can’t stand this woman anymore, tired of her f’kd up emotional life. She’s a mess.

      • Miran says:

        It’s not so much the men as it’s she’s batshit crazy sometimes.

      • WTW says:

        @funcakes Halle, was 47 when she gave birth to Maceo and had already said she struggled to have Nahla at 41 and stuggled to give her a sibling for years, so I doubt that she plotted to have a baby to appear like a stable woman.

      • Colleen says:

        Halle is just plain crazy. Always has been.

      • qwerty says:

        wtw, I think she’s saying the wedding was supposed to be the cherry on top of the kid to create a picture perfect family unit

      • Mia V. says:

        She’s crazy and this divorce will get really ugly.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Aubry had to fight to get his name on their daughter’s birth certificate. If they had been married, I think under California law the husband would automatically be put on the birth certificate. She was about six months pregnant when she and Martinez married. Martinez may have seen how she treated Aubry and decided he wanted all the paperwork crystal clear.

      • Pmnichols says:

        I’ve always got the vibe that she’s one of those crazy women. I always thought she was the one who was physically abusive, verbally abusive, crazy and irrational. I’m telling you, she’s THAT girl.

      • snowflake says:


      • LeAnn Stinks says:

        I agree, Pmnichols.

        She always plays the victim, but seems to be the one common denominator in all of her failed relationships.

        Additionally, I always thought she showed her true self when she was involved in that car crash back in 2000, and fled the scene.

    • greenmonster says:

      I think it was part love/part strategic. She wanted sole custody of her daughter with Aubry. My guess is, she also thought being a married woman would give her a better set of cards than Aubry had.

      • snarky mcsnark says:

        I’d say more like 90% strategy 10% love. She just wanted to get back at Aubry for trying to be a dad to his daughter! She thought she could get married and move to France and never have to see him again. Didn’t work out to well! She’s a perpetual victim of relationships, disparaging every guy that figures out how awful she really is and leaves her.

      • DC says:

        I think that aside from Aubry, she has chosen violent men who are obviously bad choices for a partner. I always felt sorry for her, but not so much now that she’s treated Gabriel the way she has.

    • lunchcoma says:

      It’s not the marriage that’s gotten in her so much trouble as the custody battles. I don’t know why she didn’t go to a sperm bank if she wanted to be the only parent in her children’s lives.

      • herewego says:

        I think Halle has some MAJOR Emotional issues which she brings into very relationship and it’s a factor in why her relationships fail.

        I feel sorry for he the kids.
        Also Halle has looked unhappy in photos for over a year. IMO

      • missmerry says:

        I was just thinking that!

      • herewego says:

        Didn’t they marry in France?
        Won’t that give him some rights in commuting his son to France for visits or living w him partime if Halle tries to fight him?

      • funcakes says:

        I also figure that would be the perfect solution to the single, busy entertainer who would never want the hassle of co parenting. This way they can have final say in the child’s life.

        It’s strange after so many failed relationships. But I guess she was hoping for a lasting relationship.

      • qwerty says:

        I guess she enjoys the drama. Really, if she was looking for peace and happiness she’d have found it by 47 and so many relationships. But no, her partners are either past or future enemies.

    • Original T.C. says:

      The marriage was always connected to Gabriel. On Halle’s part it was to make the courts see her as the stable respectable parent and give her full custody to take her daughter away from her father. On Oliver’s side, perhaps after betting up Gab for having the audacity to have access to his own daughter, he saw the future that he would have if he doesn’t have legal custody to his unborn child. At the end of the day these two fools got together for their own self interest and to spite Gabriel.

      • herewego says:

        I agree.

      • funcakes says:

        You’re right. I remember because Halle was dragging Gabriel to court for the smallest things. That was also the time each parent had to be pap’d doing family friendly activities to prove they were the better parent. They were constantly in the news.

    • enuff said says:

      She lost me years ago when she fled the scene of a hit-and-run that she was responsible for. I feel sorry for her children and their emotional stability with such a wacko for a mom. I can’t even view her as a beautiful woman now because it goes beyond surface beauty anymore it’s what’s on the inside. At this point she needs to forget about men and concentrate on her children.

      • Seapharris7 says:

        I love that you brought that up ENUFF, people don’t often mentioned it & it’s when I started to not think of her as beautiful anymore too.

      • Pinetree13 says:

        Yep she hit a person fled because she didn’t want to get caught. Didn’t stop to see if they were okay…didn’t even call an ambulance anonymously. That’s stone cold evil right there, not caring if you freaking just killed a person!

    • prissa says:

      I think she got married because she was banking on the judge allowing her to take Nahla and move to France. I believe it was to strengthen her custody case against Gabriel, but it backfired big time.

  2. Nev says:

    Oh man.

    • Snappyfish says:

      Cue he’s an abusive racist statements in 3. 2, 1…

      • Denisemich says:


        I think it was more like he wanted her to spend more time at home doing family things being a FRENCH wife.

        But she was with him for a few years before she got pregnant. She should have known that. I don’t think it is Olivier. He took care of Kylie when she had breast cancer.

      • antipodean says:

        I beg to differ that he took care of Kylie. He dumped her like a hot rock as soon as he could without losing face. His behaviour to her was shameful.

      • jc126 says:

        I agree, here come the accusations.

    • Sabrine says:

      Apparently he does want spousal support. We’ll see if the prenup protects her.

  3. dibba says:

    oh no, there goes my belief in true love. 🙁

  4. Tacos and TV says:

    This is sad. Just based on things I have read it kinda seemed a bit doomed. Based on her public track record, she has never had the best taste in picking partners.

    • herewego says:

      IMO IT’S HALLE. I THINK At this point it’s HALLE who is the Problem, she’s the one denominator in ALL of these FAILED Relationships.

      • Merritt says:

        So you’re basically saying it is her fault that her first husband abused her and her second husband was a serial cheater. Um no. That is not how it works. she may have bad taste in men, but then men are also choosing to be bad men.

      • Livealot says:

        And I hate that statistic. You’re going to be the common denominator in ALL your relationships Einstein.

      • Nev says:



      • truthSF says:

        @Merrit, Her first husband did not abuse her. Yes she was abused by a former boyfriend (who, at the time, was more famous than she). But when David wanted to and did break up with her, she used that story, and insinuated (but was smart enough to never actually say) that David abused/hit her. It was very well known at the time how crazy Halle was. And you don’t leave Halle, Halle leaves you.

    • Saywhatwhen says:

      But of course it was never going to be forever. You do not have to work a crystal ball to see that crazy and crazier were not going to make the distance. The man looks like he can’t go without fresh skirt for more than 3 days.

      I just don’t understand why Halle hasn’t come into her self-knowledge as yet. Lady over 45 and she can’t tell when a man is not a good fit? Just look at him. Yes, I judge a book by its cover in this instance– all swaggery, mucho-aggresso, smirk/smile and no career/place to go but to the restos he owns down in Miami with all the fast and loose @$$ at his fingertips. Halle crazier than usual for thinking that high school hormones re-discovered on a movie set, good sex and a plan to outsmart a judge and an ex can make a marriage last.

      • herewego says:

        HALLE has MAJOR EMOTIONAL Issues

        It’s HALLE!
        How many marriages divorces, bust ups to see that it’s her. She is just mess up in the head. IMO

      • funcakes says:

        You mean beating Gabriel’s face to a bloody pulp wasn’t ample warning to get the heck out? But then I always thought she instigated that fight.

      • Cyn says:

        Question: has anyone other than Halle accused David Justice of abuse? The man has been happily married for over 15 years. I have never heard of any other allegations against him. Halle is the type of nutso who would say anything to make herself a victim.

      • truthSF says:

        @Cyn: No , because David Justice did not abuse Halle. She used that story to get back at him because she was angry that he cheated on her (which he did numerous times). But that’s the risk you take when you date/marry a sports star. He may have been a bad husband, but he was not abusive. There was an article written in a black owned magazine back in the 90’s (right after their breakup) and all of his ex-girlfriends confirmed that he was not abusive. Only Halle made that claim. Things that makes you go hmm….

      • herewego says:

        Exactly , Halle she loves drama, creates drama and always blames others.
        David Justice has been married for years, no issues.
        The singer ex husband living his life touring, small venues, no problems.

  5. emmyb1608 says:

    Judging by all the blinds on various sites, we all knew this was happening before they knew themselves! At least Halle has the chance to play the victim… Again!

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

    It is going to be awful !

    • herewego says:

      She met her match in nastiness moves, he looks like he will have no problem spilling the beans on her.

  7. David says:

    Is this # 3 or 4 for her?

    • Sochan says:

      I think it’s 3 for husbands, but 5 for long-term relationships: Aubry, plus Wesley Snipes back in the day.

      I actually think Aubry is a nice guy and Halle hit it good with him — but she ruined it.

  8. Emmygrant says:

    Quelle surprise! At least this split appears to be less dramatic than her others (so far).

  9. me says:

    Halle please stop getting married. It’s just not meant to be. It’s ok to be a woman and be single.

    • TQB says:

      Right? I had so much respect for her when she said “I’m never getting married again – ever” after #2. Sigh.

  10. aims says:

    This will get ugly quick!! Oliver isn’t zen like Gabriel. He’ll fight to the bitter end and if Halle tries to pull any sh*t with their son it will be epic.

    On a side note. With three marriages and a partner all failing. Maybe it isn’t all them, it might be her.

    • anne_000 says:


    • Katy says:

      I do think it is Halle – she just seems like a real super bitch. But having said that, I will say that Oliver has the look that he can be a major rage monster. He just seems full of despise for all those around him. In the photo above….I don’t know when that was taken but I can just imagine him telling her to smile and look all lovey dovey for the camera, but she is NOT having it! lol

      • Betti says:

        Oliver is the type to give her as good as he gets – he’s just like her. This divorce battle will get epic and he will not stand for any BS over their son.

      • Hannah says:

        Why do you say he gives as good as he gets? This guy has been in relationships with high profile women before, kylie Minogue and juliette binoche to name a few. there’s not any evidence he’s A dramaqueen from past relationships. In fact he’s friendly with his exes. Most people here only base their opnion on him because he was roped into the drama between Halle and Gabriel.

      • atorontogal says:

        He was roped in? So he was forced to beat the living crap out of Gabriel?

      • qwerty says:

        he fcaking jumped in the middle of this mess himself!

    • Lycifer says:

      Quien es mas macho? Halle, Gabriel o Oliver?

  11. Alyce says:

    I don’t know, maybe he isn’t going to want custody? That’s the only way I see this going smoothly.

  12. Michelle says:

    Disagree or not, but this woman has issues. This was the end of her third marriage. Perhaps she needs to be alone for a while and just raise her kids. She obviously not marriage material.

    • Moneypenny says:

      I think she’s just mentally unstable inside or outside of a marriage. After she hit someone with her car and just drove off, I figured she’s just bat sh*t crazy. She’s gorgeous but I can smell the crazy all the way over the internet.

      • Nancy says:

        I forgot about her hit and run. She is all kinds of crazy.

      • HH says:

        I don’t doubt that she had some personal issues she probably needs to work on alone, however, Halle is an incredibly beautiful and successful woman. And I have no doubt that threatens a lot of men, or they just can’t handle it. Particularly when she seems like the more successful one (not that her exes are “nobodies”). I think when dating her these men probably feel like they’ve “won the prize” but then they realize this prize is walking, talking, and shining, but not only for them. Halle has bad taste in men, but I just can’t see putting this all on her.

      • Moneypenny says:

        Definitely not putting this all on her. My saying she’s crazy wasn’t dismissing that she has bad taste in men–she’s crazy with bad taste in men. These guys don’t sound like prizes in any way. Of course, given what we saw with Gabriel, it is hard to trust the narrative that these guys are just all bad. The truth is somewhere in the middle.

    • herewego says:

      At this point I think it’s HALLE who is the Problem. She’s a mess emotionally. I think her agents hid how off the hook messed up she is when they were building her career when she was younger.

      IT’S HALLLE Who is the Problem. I feel sorry for those kids. I think their mom is off the hook messed up!

      • Pinetree13 says:

        She’s a narcissist. She almost killed so one with her car, not only did she not check to see if they were okay…she didn’t even call an ambulance anonymously. That’s evil.

  13. EN says:

    Oliver and Gabriel should form a support group.
    Poor kids.

    • L says:

      Exactly. They’ll forgive and forget the physical skirmish they had and have a beer together.

    • Lori says:

      And lets not be shocked when Halle tries to go Kelly Rutherford and get these dudes deported.

      • qwerty says:

        she’s JUST used up all her dirty tricks on the custody battle with daddy no 1. I’m curious what she comes up with this time.

    • alice says:

      wha are you guys talking about! I know it’s a joke, but Olivier and David Justice are violent men. They both have issues with violence and I’m sure Halle has her issues too, besides bad taste in men, but I don’t blame her for leaving violent guys.

      • Cyn says:

        David Justice is not a violent man. The ONLY person to ever accuse him as such was Halle. She says whatever she needs to say to paint herself as the victim.

      • HH says:

        David could been physically violent with her. Others not speaking up, is not evidence of the contrary. Could Halle have lied? Sure. But we can’t definitively say one way or the other.

  14. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    She should have kept her word when she told Oprah she wasn’t going to be married again. Add to that she should probably avoid ALL romantic relationships for a while, she seems like one of those women where no matter how long the relationship lasts it’s always gonna end and end in bloody ugly flames.

    Good luck to the babies, maybe she’ll get lucky since Olivier doesn’t seem like a devoted Dad.

    • EN says:

      At least she should stop marrying foreigners. With kids involved and now 3 countries in the mix – Canada, France and the US , this is going to be the mother of all flame outs.

      • Neah23 says:

        What does her marring or dating foreigners have to do with anything?

      • funcakes says:

        Foreigners? Really?

      • EN says:

        > Foreigners? Really?

        I see I offended people. It wasn’t meant as some kind of American superiority comment. What I meant – people physically living in other countries.
        She lived in France, Aubry lived in Canada. How was that supposed to work for her daughter?
        Now she is probably going to go back to the US and what happens to her son? His dad is in France.
        Logistics would’ve been easier if they were all in the same country, at least.

      • Neah23 says:


        Aubry lives in LA as does Halle she never live in France the judge said she could not move their daughter outside of the US.

      • funcakes says:

        I guess citizenship is something couples should think about when kids are involved like the Kelly Rutherford situation.

    • CatFoodJunkie says:

      @EN – i totally got what you were saying. i wish some posters would not be just so EXCITED to jump on the PC bandwagon…any hint of anything even remotely questionable (in their eyes) is instantly suspect. ugh. i

      • Nancy says:

        Absolutely. You can’t say anything about anyone without someone suggesting you’re racist, bigot, this or that. It’s as though people are looking for things to press you on. Someone said foreigner and another got upset! For what, if you’re from another country, it is foreign to the States. It is not an insult unless I missed the list of words or phrases that couldn’t be said in 2015 without inciting a riot. My lands, long comment, but it makes you nuts sometimes. (Now someone from a mental institution will say nuts is insulting…wowzers).

      • qwerty says:

        Yep pearl clutchers are everywhere these days. I wonder what the pc word for the f-word is. And I’m an f-word myself!

    • herewego says:

      Halle lies about a lot…..some of her past quotes

      Halle- I would never do a nude or topless scene.

      Halle- I could never see myself marrying a white man, …_*Yup said it to (one of the African American publications in 90s

      Halle- I will never get married again

      The woman says whatever she feels she needs to say at any given moment.
      I think she’s just insincere and phoney and her true personality is slowly coming out to the public

      • moot says:

        Well, sure. She’s an actor. Why would you believe anything an actor says, even off set?

        Halle seems the type of celebrity who knows how to win over the audience. She’ll tell you what she knows you want to hear, especially if that makes her look better. Not unlike Angelina — though, unlike Angelina, she hasn’t managed to focus her crazy on a worthy cause outside of her Hollywood life.

        I recommend she take a page from Angelina’s playbook and become a spokesperson for an NPO that could use the publicity from a passionate and pretty face. Get the public to associate her with something real and grounded and that is helping save lives; and get the news away from her love life and the crazy shenanigans she gets herself into.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        And don’t don’t forget how she loved, loved, loved Eric Benet’s daughter, just like she was her own, and was going to adopt her, and dropped her like a hot potato!!!! I always felt bad for that poor little girl….

    • What's inside says:

      This 1,000,000+. I was thinking the exact same thing. This woman has issues with dominant male figures and tries to portray herself as a victim whenever things go bad. However, now she has two beautiful children and perhaps she can raise them and be at peace. No way ever will she get sole custody, particularly with Martinez.

  15. anne_000 says:

    Well, she seems to love personal drama and Olivier seems to be a great big drama baby, even purposely beating up the face of the model/father of Halle’s first child.

    I don’t know why they would divorce each other. She has the money and a crazy, obsessive temperament while he has the latter. They’re made for each other. Probably will reconcile at some point as fighting the craziness in each other will be more tiresome than just settling as a couple.

    • EN says:

      > They’re made for each other.

      I hoped so too, like Burton and Taylor. They fought all the time. And that meant both of them off the market and no threat to civilians.

      But I think Taylor was saner than Halle by miles. Halle need help, not a husband.

      • LizzyFizzy says:

        Taylor was saner, I think, especially as she got older. Her kids all turned out fine. But according to that Furious Love book, she tried to “keep up” with Burton’s drinking and that was very bad for her longterm. Supposedly, she was bored by regular guys and drawn to intense men like Burton and Mike Todd.

      • anne_000 says:

        @ EN

        I agree. Them being together will save two poor souls from being subjected to their aggressive craziness.

      • Betti says:

        Taylor and Burton were good parents regardless of their demons and intense/fiery relationship. All their kids turned out well.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Cameras on the property mysteriously turned away from the spot they usually film constantly? I suspect Halle played 50 percent of the instigator in that Thanksgiving beatdown.

      • Ankhel says:

        Halle has repeatedly accused men of being abusive in the past. She’s very aggressive towards her exes, wether they deserve it or not. She’s also a liar. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if Halle told Olivier Gabriel had been cruel to her. That would’ve made Olivier more likely to get hostile with Gabriel, and I bet that pleased her…

      • Christin says:

        From what little I gathered, that’s what I think happened. She lit the fuse, so to speak.

  16. BendyWindy says:

    So shocked! Said no one ever. I don’t think Halle will unleash the crazy with Olivier, because he’s know to be crazy as well. I think she’s been so volatile with Gabriel because he’s a sane person and she can get away with it. I think she’ll keep it relatively peaceful with OM because he’s just as volatile as she is, AND she doesn’t want him to spill the beans on how nuts she’s been about Gabriel. Can you imagine if OM and Gabriel Aubrey started sharing information? She’d probably wind up back in court over Nahla.

    • Christin says:

      This is going to be interesting. If things do go peacefully, one can assume she just viewed GA as a doormat type and has enough awareness not to mess with another volatile type.

      • The Other Katherine says:

        I think this is highly likely. Sociopaths usually have a keen awareness of exactly how much they can get away with (and it’s usually a lot more when they’re dealing with non-sociopaths, who find it difficult to comprehend what sociopaths are capable of doing in order to get their own way).

  17. Lilacflowers says:

    So she didn’t really lose her ring?

  18. Eleonor says:

    How unexpected.

  19. JudyK says:

    I think the woman is absolutely mental. Both kids are probably better off w/ their fathers.

  20. Tiffany says:

    If there are rumors that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and his wife are on the skids, we know who her jumpoff is.

    • Olenna says:

      Oh, I hope not. Halle needs to get her sh*t together and that ain’t gonna happen in a rebound romance. There was good chemistry between the two on screen in Extant, though.

      mmmmm Jeffrey Dean Morgan

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      Isn’t Hilary Burton JDM’s baby momma? I dont think they ever married.

    • so says:

      I dont think it’s true. Jeffery and his wife were at event like3 or 5 days ago they seem pretty happy. I mean pictures can lie but they seemed cute and happy.

      • Minx says:

        According to his own words, back in July Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton were not married yet. But that doesn’t make their relationship less stable…

        But first, he clarified that he and Hilarie are not married. “I’m not technically married yet but we say we are and eventually we will be,” he explained. “I can’t stop working is the problem. So it’s hard to seal that deal.

        Morgan and Berry seem to be really hot together tough…

  21. Neah23 says:

    I’m not surprised, I called this earlier this year. When Halle is playing nice and smiling with the paparazzi it was a big sign that something wasn’t right.

    • Tiffany says:

      And also the CS hearing with Gabriel, she was planning. It would not be surprising if they have settled and the ink is on the papers.

  22. Nancy says:

    Not Halle the most rational women in Hollywood, oh yeah that one, surprised it lasted this long. Halle has always had issues with men, with life. Blame her mom, she named her after a department store in Cleveland. Lol

  23. LizzyFizzy says:

    I love her style,* but man, her personal life is messy. So messy. There was a story–she told Barbara Walters, maybe?–that she’d considered suicide after the end of her first marriage and gotten into the car in the garage, intending to crank it, WITH HER TWO MALTESES. Girl, no. You leave your dogs the money and a designated caretaker. Even Leona Hemsley knew that!

    *Her hair is my favorite and her jewelry is usually amazing.

  24. funcakes says:

    This is going to be ugly. They have a prenup, but we all know Halle’ s going to play the crazy card when Oliver try to take the kid to France.
    Plus Olivier is going to make up fir lost time. Halle is going to freak out with the parade of booty marching in.
    I don’t know how, but I’m sure she going to f@ck with Aubrey. That how Coo Coo for Coo Puffs she is. Everybody run for cover. No one is safe.

  25. Jayna says:

    Code for abusive.

    It seems like they’ve been over for quite a while and secretly separated, except for the recent pap walks. So I think the divorce will go smoothly, well, as smoothly as a divorce can go, because it’s not a dramatic, all of a sudden split and have probably already been working out custody issues, etc, for months. She will have to pay him something also. In looking at his IMDb, the guy rarely works.

    • Neah23 says:

      Not true Halle and Aubry we’re fine at first she was even says that he was a great father he was on some talk show, when they first split. It was only after Aubry wanted more time with his daughter and his name on the birth certificate did she change her tone. It’s either my way or the highway when it comes to Halle.

      • Andrea says:

        When that happened is when the court of public opinion turned on Halle. There was only maliciousness why she didn’t put his name on the birth certificate.

  26. Jasper says:

    Big shocker here…

  27. I Choose Me says:

    I’m like everyone else wondering how bad the fallout’s gonna be. I get the sense that Halle’s a control freak and I don’t think she expected Aubrey to fight as hard as he did for access to their daughter. She may try a different tack with Olivier since she knows how volatile he is.

  28. chloe says:

    I feel sorry for her two kids, they are going to remember their childhood as nothing but custody battles and fights between their parents. Halle needs to step away from dating, take some anger management classes and find a good project to help out her career.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      That was my thought, too, chloe. No peace for these two innocent children, no stability. I hope she doesn’t put them through another drama-filled divorce, poor things.

  29. pacsgirl says:

    I have a hard time understanding why she can’t keep a man it just goes to show pretty isn’t everything. Starting to think the rumors are true she might be a little crazy.

    • WTW says:

      @pacsgirl “Can’t keep a man.” Sexist much? I wouldn’t be surprised if Halle is the one calling it quits in most of her relationships. The more appropriate question is why she’s choosing men who appear to be lousy matches for her?

      • Nev says:


      • Saywhatwhen says:

        I actually think it is Olivier that’s doing the leaving and not Halle. Halle leaves in a more dramatic fashion. Plus, to my mind Olivier cannot keep any woman—mainly because he wants them all.

      • Ennie says:

        As it appears, everyone is going to be a lousy match for her. It seems obvious to me that she has issues. She reeks of daddy issues.
        I do not know all her dating history, but out of 5 or 6 men, one must have been kind of “normal”. Still, they break up, who is to blame? She certainly has a fair share. Now with 2 children and two parents of different countries in the mix, she really needs to assess her priorities.

      • herewego says:

        Halle can’t keep a MAN …Word.

    • Able says:

      It’s funny because Martinez has a similar dating history with a string of GFs (high profile; Elsa Pataky, Kylie Minogue, etc) but Halle’s the one who can’t keep a man? From the looks of things, neither of them are built for long-term monogamy.

      • Don't kill me I'm French says:

        The différence is that Martinez never was married or had a kid before.
        He always stays several years with his girlfriends .

    • Shelley says:

      “Can’t keep a man”? As if that is the mark of a woman’s success in life.

  30. Amy M. says:

    The one smart and stupid thing Olivier did was marry her. Smart because he’ll have more of a say in custody arrangements–she can’t pretend he is just a sperm donor like she did with Gabriel when she was trying to take Nahla to France. Stupid because who wants to get involved with someone as spiteful and crazy? Olivier is not perfect either what with attacking Gabriel in front of Nahla.

    But seriously Halle do not get married anymore. She reminds me of the post from yesterday’s Humans of NY with the guy describing his crazy ex-wife screaming she was being hit by him because she knew he was recording her on his iPhone and faked domestic assault to get a restraining order against him. It was an intense multi part post.

  31. Madpoe says:

    oh I just can’t even with this!

  32. Andrea says:

    Halle is the type of person you just don’t want to end up broken up to. No one on here DIDNT see this coming. I’d love to see Gabriel’s face today. LOL This is just the tip of the iceberg. Break out your popcorn ladies, this is going to get juicy fast!

  33. Andrea says:

    As someone who recently had a bad breakup, some people really get nasty real quick when things end. My ex broke up with me, yet is nasty to me, and rubbing his new relationship in my face, telling me all kinds of garbage like he went away with her for the weekend after 2 months, she is almost 10 years younger than him and 13 years younger than me, has father issues clearly to imply he is playing daddy, she finds kissing gross etc. I had to cease even a civil friendship. I can’t talk with such an immature person who wants to hurt me considerably. The sad thing is the fact that he is saying all that stuff shows he isn’t over me either, which is just bad for everyone involved. I hope one day I can find someone else who is mature and instead of rubbing it in his face, I plan to just go about my life accordingly.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I am sorry that you are having to experience this. It must be so hard to “let go” and move on but I wish you Godspeed to finding peace and happiness with or without someone else. *hugs*

  34. Byte Me says:

    Looks like Halle will now have 2 men to pay support to.

  35. ali.hanlon says:

    Colour me surprised….not!

    They both are anger, unstable people.

    Hopefully Gabriel and the kids don’t get affected by the fall out.

  36. greenmonster says:

    I wonder if she is going to pull some sort of a Kelly Rutherford.

  37. Dawn says:

    Well we all knew this was coming but I feel for her. I think she wants the stability of a marriage but it some how all goes to cr@p when she tries to make it work. I like Halle but I hated the way she treated Aubry when all he wanted to do was to stay in his child’s life. I thought that was a good thing. Oh well, maybe Halle and Oliver will slug it out quickly and without too much blood. We shall see.

    • MichLynn says:

      I have zero sympathy for any woman who tries to cut the father out of her child’s life. I doubt she learned her lesson from the Aubrey fight, but we shall see. Then again maybe Olivier knows all her custody tactics and that will dissuade her from trying to pull anything with him.

  38. sassy says:

    And cue Jeffrey Dean Morgan announcing his separation in 3,2,1

  39. AlmondJoy says:

    Just here for the comments… Most posters hate Halle and we’re waiting for this to happen so it’s time to grab that bag of popcorn

  40. thaisajs says:

    They both bring the crazy in unique ways so not surprised by this. I do feel sorry for the kids. Sounds like she’s giving up prime custody of the 2-year-old boy which seems weird to me, given she was so crazy about keeping custody of her daughter with the model. What am I missing here?

    • Neah23 says:

      Oliver is what’s missing he has a nasty temper and it’s been shown on more then one occasion.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Where did you read that she’s giving up primary custody of their son? I cannot see that happening, given her 7 year fight with Aubry over their daughter.

    • MichLynn says:

      Since she is batshit crazy, it could be because he’s a boy. I know my ex-sister in law used to get jealous and make nasty comments when my nephew would run to my brother first over her. He was a daddy’s boy and always wanted to be with him. She’d had a daughter first (with no father in the picture) and wasn’t used to that dynamic. But who the f*ck knows what in in Halle’s crazy head.

    • Neah23 says:

      According to TMZ Halle is not asking for joint or primary custody, but rather what is “in the best interests of the child”. Which means it’s going to get real.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I would take that to mean in Berry’s mind, “sole custody for Halle” being the best interest for their son.

  41. annaloo. says:

    Halle– I hope you find happiness and peace, I hope you find the love that you seek, and its safety and stability within it. I know that you have become a trope of the angry/crazy black woman in the public’s eye, but you are still a hero and human to me. When you held up your Oscar, I cried. I have not forgotten how long it took for you to get to that point, how you thanked your predecessors, and how far you took the ball for everyone that has come after you. I hope you find your peace.

    • Nev says:

      WORD. I cried too.
      Love and light Halle.

      • herewego says:

        Can’t stand her.
        Fake crying, Oscar she didn’t deserve, imo
        Angela Bassett a much better actress should have got the Oscar years before for What’s Love..imo, not Halle, always found her overrated.

    • Danskins says:

      +1…Such a difficult situation for all involved, especially the kids. It’s easy to judge her as completely cray cray but glad to see some compassion for her still remains.

    • Ange says:

      Here, at least, I don’t see Halle’s race being the determining factor in why she’s called crazy. I could definitely see it in other, more dank corners of the internet though.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        I don’t think race has anything to do with the Halle mess….I think, it’s because she is a famous actress, who has been in a number of messy relationships. She had that hit and run accident. Any famous person is going to have a ton of crap come down on them, no matter who they are. It’s just the way things are today. Every little detail is leaked to the tabs…or the tabs make stuff up!!!! And by the way, I thought Halle was fantastic in Monster’s Ball! Her best role to date!

  42. Saywhatwhen says:

    Yes. I did say it would be October. Lord have mercy on Halle Berry. And all women who have man troubles. And God bless those little children too.

  43. InvaderTak says:

    Yeah. Not shocking. But still sad to see any marriage go.

  44. Liberty says:

    Can there please be a sitcom in which a male model and a macho Frenchman have to share an apartment in LA to make ends meet while raising the kids they had with a high-spirited actress? And their neighbor is another high-spirited actress who thinks the Europeans kidnapped her children and are forcing the tots to eat South of France cuisine while they attend a bilingual school in a stunning picturesque village?


  45. iheartgossip says:

    Both of them are messy messes. Come on Halle, you have children in need of a role model.

  46. moot says:

    Oh, Halle. You have the worst radar for men. The worst. Not sure what it is you think you want, but perhaps consider the opposite next time. *sigh*

  47. Nan says:

    50 Shades of Cray!

  48. Camille says:

    Well ha ha. It is sad for their son, but this was inevitable.

  49. Jayna says:

    There’s so many on here blaming Halle, like Oliver isn’t a temperamental mess himself. Come on. This guy has a nasty temper. This was said to be the last straw when this happened, and now they are being sued. I get being aggravated by paps and wanting to hit them, as all celebs are harassed far too often, but knocking the guy down to the ground in front of your children like that?


    • Neah23 says:

      The guy he knocked down wasn’t a paparazzi, but an airport employee and I think they paid the guy off because he dropped the law suit.

      His temper is not new sadly, but I think Halle was ok with it when she could use it to her advantage against Aubry. It seemed like a toxic relationship from the beginning I feel sorry that the kids had to be exsposed to it.

    • LizzyFizzy says:

      Martinez’s dad was a boxer and I think he boxed early in his career, too. So, I’d bet that swing at the airport employee wasn’t gentle.

      He’s always looked surly to me. Makes me think of that scene in French Kiss where Meg Ryan teases Kevin Kline’s character about turning into a cranky old Frenchmen: ‘You’ll become one of those hunchbacked, lonely old men, sitting in the corner of a crowded cafe, mumbling to yourself, “you people make my @ss twitch!” (mimes exhaling cigarette smoke)’

    • MrsBPitt says:

      In that picture above with Olivier, Halle looks like she is trying to escape. He gives me a scary vibe…

  50. Dani says:

    I don’t know if it’s been said but I think he’s going to give her a run for her money in the crazy department and put her through the ringer.

  51. Viv says:

    Beautiful woman but ugly as hell on the inside. I hate how she allowed her husband to beat up her daughters father and then lied to the police that he was defending himself. Bull. And disgraceful that the police believed that. Olivier has a long history of violent behaviour. Aubry none. I feel so sorry for him having himself and his daughter exposed to that violent man and having to deal with Halles vindictive crazy.

    Her and Olivier deserve each other as exes, hope they give each other hell.

  52. Katrina says:

    Just for reference, this is what Halle said when she initially split from Gabriel:

    “We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that’s why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever. We are a family until we are not here anymore. And while it was not a love connection for us, he was absolutely the right person to have this child with because she is going to have an amazing father. We’ll make sure we always do what is right for her and put her first. And she will see as she grows that we have a lot of love for each other.”

    And we all know how that turned out. She’s releasing a similar statement now, let’s check in a few years down the road and see how it’s going.

    • Ennie says:

      PR person wrote it.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I think Halle knows that she isn’t dealing with someone like Nahla’s father this time…I’m sure she knows that Olivier is a different species than Gabriel…and it’s probably scaring the hell out of her…

  53. herewego says:

    Her PR Handler’s must shake their heads at her.

    She got the Oscar and turned her career to poo

  54. LAK says:

    The divorce drama is going to be EPIC!!!

  55. Hannah says:

    It’s amazing that every Halle post is full of poor Gabriel comments! What did this guy do to get this fan club of women that sees him as this innocent victim? Apart from being pretty and blonde I mean? Halle may be crazy but It takes two to tango.

    • Ange says:

      Ummm, Halle tried to take his kid away for years and then sicced her angry French husband on to him?

      • funcakes says:

        Even money on Halle using the beat down Olivier gave Gabriel in the soon to be custody hearings.

    • Ankhel says:

      It’s not that people feel they know him, it’s her. She keeps trying to remove him from his daughter’s life, and has taken him to court again and again for ridiculous things. Gabriel would have to be really evil to deserve that, and it’s not difficult to pity him.

      • Hannah says:

        no he doesn’t have to be evil, if he was in any way endangering the child there would be cause to supervise the visits.I am not saying what Halle says it’s true, but equally I don’t buy that this guy is some poor totally innocent victim.

        I guess we will see how bad her divorce gets with Martinez.

      • Ankhel says:

        “Endangering the child”? Where is this coming from? I’ve never heard anything about that. Also, if he was a danger to his kid, evil would be a fairly good word to use, don’t you think? I’d like some evidence though.

      • Hannah says:

        I am sorry but didn’t she accuse him of being ragey and of racism? There was some incident with a nanny or something?
        I did not say it’s true, so I don’t know why you want me to provide evidence. I am saying that was her argument, which may be exaggerated or not true at all.
        Evil is an extremely strong word, i don’t use it for people who have a temper problem. Evil to me is hitlers regime, genocide, despots etc.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Hannah she accused him of many things, all of which were proven false in the court. Halle may have seemed perfectly normal to him, until her inner rage monster came out when she decided to be a single mother and he wouldn’t go quietly. Even when they were still happily together, she didn’t put his name on the birth certificate. Premeditated IMO.

        I don’t find Aubry physically attractive, he’s too pretty, so that’s not why I’d write in his favor. His commitment to their daughter, despite Berry’s 7-years worth of mud slinging, is admirable.

    • snowflake says:

      What you have got to be kidding me Hannah. She took him to court called him a bad father. Before she still said nothing but praises for him that is until He went on a date with Kim Kardashian, aftervthat was when all hell broke loose. she has taken him to court numerous times for nothing, accusedbhim of straightening her daughters hair because she knew that would beca hot button issue for many people. and had her new husband beat Gabriel up and now Gabriel is the bad person. he’s never said one bad word about her,done nothing but take care o their daughterdaughter while she tries to get custody and run off to France. Yeah, that Gabe’s a bad one.

  56. Brasileira says:

    Let the crazy begin!

    …or, have a second coming!

  57. Brasileira says:

    HA! I love this one:

    “A source tells PEOPLE that the relationship had “run its course,” adding: “They are keeping it amicable now. She is okay.”

    Like in “She is okay”… even People knows who’s the sh*t stirrerAnd it won’t hide it! hahha

  58. Sochan says:

    Let the games begin!

  59. The Original Mia says:

    This relationship ran its course when she realized it wouldn’t help her one bit in her custody case against Gabriel. Then Maceo was born and she had to stick it out a little longer. No one is surprised by this divorce. It’s going to be one ugly custody to come.

  60. Meg says:

    This is why you don’t marry your fantasy man. there’s a difference between men you date and men you marry. a partner to build your life with and a guy to escape reality with and be hot and heavy with are two different things

    • Patty says:

      This is so true. Unfortunately, both men and women tend to marry the fantasy and wake up a few years later wondering what the hell happened. I want to like Halle Berry, I really do, but I do think she has serious issues with men; related to her experience with her own dad. I hope she stays single and works herself and finds a way to co-parent with both Oliver and Gabriel.

  61. funcakes says:

    Now it’s being reported that they filed under aliases. Halle served him with the papers which she was not allowed to do. Now a judge has to get involved.

    • Freddy Spaghetti says:

      She filed for divorce using aliases and Oliver has already slapped back by filing papers with their real names on them. His lawyer is Laura Wasser, who I can’t remember is a big deal or not.

  62. FLORC says:

    Late to this Thread!
    Yea, not shocking at all. Assumed this happened ages ago and was kept under wraps.
    This divorce will go smoothly if Halle gets her way all the way. If not this will get messy.

    She knew this man. His violence. His temper. And she sung his praises. Now we will see her backtrack like she had no clue if he dares to ask for even shared custody.

  63. Jaded says:

    I just feel sorry for her kids. This is NOT the way to raise happy, well-adjusted children who have a strong relationship base to learn and grow from.

  64. Loca says:

    Halle needs to quit playing the victim and take ownership of her own mental problems. She married him she didn’t have to at all no one forced her. We all knew this was going to happen and it isn’t shocking one bit that she will fight with Olivier for custody. Round 2 ladies and gents!

  65. Tara says:

    Olivier has always tried to get with women who are stars. Halle has really crappy taste in men and may possibly be an emotional basketcase herself

  66. Alice too says:

    I don’t see Martinez actually wanting custody. Visitation maybe, custody…no. I don’t think there is going to be any fighting over that at all.

    That said, I can totally see her pulling the “siblings should be raised together” card at some point on Aubry. Along with the “my son is French and needs to grow up in his own country” card. He needs to keep on his toes…

  67. I'm With The Band says:

    “Wow, I didn’t see that coming”, said no-one ever.

  68. Jazmin says:

    She should pair up with Tom Cruise next. Is he still single? They make a great combo and both have children to co-parent!

  69. greenmonster says:

    In Germany it’s already starting: she filed for divorce because there was too much trouble with paparazzi and he had a violent temper. That’s what so called society experts tell the media.
    Not, it just wasn’t working or we yet have to wait to find out the reason. Nope, she already is the victim.

  70. Alice too says:

    Oh the irony… From RadarOnline:

    The couple have a son, Maceo, 2, and an insider told Radar, “Halle is hoping that Olivier won’t seek joint custody. She wants to be Maceo’s primary custodial parent”.

    “The concern for Halle is that Olivier, a French citizen, will attempt to take Maceo to live in France,” the source explained. “There is no way Halle will allow that to happen and will fight it all the way.”

    • lisa2 says:

      Which would be strange since she started the relationship fighting to move her family to France. So now she would fight against what she was fighting GA for?

      I said this years ago that if this relationship ended this would come back to bite her in the butt.

  71. DanaG says:

    I don’t have any sympathy for Halle she was awful to Gabriel and she married a guy who was a well known cad and who cheated on everyone he has ever dated. Getting Halle pregnant is probably the best career move he ever made cause now she will have to pay him spousel support etc. I expect her to go all out but the courts know her games and I don’t think either of these two are going to come out of this well and the two kids of course will be in the middle and will be screwed up by both parents. Let’s hope they have a good nanny cause this is going to get crazy.
