Halle Berry & Olivier’s divorce is going so well, they’re vacationing together


When Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez announced their divorce last October, I just assumed that we needed to prepare ourselves for months, even years of he-said/she-said divorce drama. In fact, in the weeks immediately following their divorce announcement, pro-Halle sources were running to all of the weeklies to throw Olivier under the bus. And then… nothing much really happened. Halle and Olivier have been pretty quiet for months now. Is this the calm before the storm, or has Halle truly matured and she’s trying to get along with Olivier and effectively co-parent their son Maceo? Well, People Magazine has an interesting update – apparently, Olivier and Halle are currently on vacation together with the kids.

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez jetted out of the Los Angeles International Airport on Monday, coming together to take their children on a family vacation to Mexico despite their ongoing divorce proceedings. The former couple, who first announced their plans to divorce last October, were photographed leaving LAX with both Maceo-Robert, 2, and Berry’s daughter Nahla, 8. A source tells PEOPLE that the family of four are vacationing at a Mexican resort.

Berry, 49, and Martinez, 50, have come together before for the sake of the children, and other sources have told PEOPLE that the pair are working out divorce details amicably. “There is no fighting,” the insider shared.

Neither star was wearing a wedding ring on Monday. From the start, sources told PEOPLE that Berry and Martinez wanted to “make the divorce as painless as possible for the kids,” and that the actor was “very happy that he and Halle are able to keep a good relationship.”

If they’re truly getting along and there’s no drama, then God bless and Godspeed. I do have to wonder… how is that there was so much drama with Gabriel Aubry, who was basically milquetoast, and yet there’s no drama with Olivier, who famously has a hair-trigger temper? Is it crazy that I wonder if Halle and Olivier might get back together? I mean, they suited each other in some weird way. Anyway, if they’re not getting back together and they’re just trying to do the “conscious uncoupling” thing, then good for them.

Halle and Olivier have both stepped out for separate pap strolls with the kids recently too…

    Both Oliver and Halle must read ( or have people that do) sites like Celebitchy, etc. When the whole drama with Gabriel was going on many of the comments were very negative in regards to the behaviour of Halle and Gabriel.
    Neither one of them would come out smelling like roses in a nasty divorce and custody fight. Maybe they both have learned from that mess with Gabriel and decided (or their lawyers) to act like adults and put their child ahead of their own interests.
    Sidenote: Halle certainly has beautiful children. Nahla has grown so tall!

      “Both Oliver and Halle must read ( or have people that do) sites like Celebitchy, etc. When the whole drama with Gabriel was going on many of the comments were very negative in regards to the behaviour of Halle and Gabriel.”

      Not true. Except for a very, VERY few of us, all of the comments were very negative in regard to the behavior of Halle Berry. Gabriel was the ‘wronged party’ and Halle was the ‘crazy B$itch’ who always ‘be crazy with her men.’

      • Naya says:

        Gabriel is like Trump around here, he could commit murder in the middle of Time Square and it would be completely Halle Berrys fault.

      • AlmondJoy says:

        Naya, so true!! Your comment is hilarious and on point.

      • Colette says:

        Halle was the devil incarnate and deadbeat Gabriel was an angel.As for Nahla ,I’m glad Halle pushed for that paparazzi law regarding kids.We rarely see Nahla anymore and I think I’ve only seen Maceo three times since he was born.

      • Liv says:

        Gabriel is like Trump? Who is supporting Trump over here? Oh and of course he got defended by commenters, because Halle and Olivier acted like idiots.

    I never got the schadenfreude for Berry. i’m in the minority here, I guess.

  3. JKL says:

    Damn, that daughter is big. When did that happen?

  4. Chloe says:

    Actually Halle and Gabriel got along after their breakup, he even accompanied her when she filmed that horrible movie she did with Oliver, it wasn’t until after she started dating him that the trouble started with Gabriel.

    • milietan says:

      Yeah, I think it’s when she wanted to take Nala and move to France with her new bf and Gabriel was like “no way, I want to continue to be a part of my daughter’s life” that she started hurling the accusations of racism.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

      @Chloe …

      Yes, this! That’s when the major problem with money began as well. And it ‘really’ esculated when Halle found out she was pregnant. Gabriel wanted Halle to have another child when they were together (they both did because neither of them wanted Nahla to be an only child) and Halle actually tried, but it didn’t happen. That’s why she was so surprised when she got pregnant so quickly with Olivier.

  5. BendyWindy says:

    I was just thinking about them yesterday. I’m glad they’re getting along, but Halle and Gabriel got along at first, too.

  6. LAK says:

    She got along with Gabriel initially, until Gabriel decided to assert his parental rights. Then the s***started flying.

    • Emma - The JP Lover says:

      No, it was when Gabriel started ‘demanding’ money and all of his time with Nahla to be on ‘his’ terms. I’ve never heard of this before. They weren’t married, yet divorced mothers with joint custody are allowed to move where they want with their kids once they’ve gotten remarried and have move on with their lives. Halle never denied Gabriel contact with Nahla, she just wanted to get on with her life without paying for Gabriel to live ‘his’ life … and he ‘is’ living off her money, with a girlfriend.

      • SamiHami says:

        It’s different when you are rich. The idea is to ensure that the child is maintained in a similar manner in either parents’ home. The thing people take issue with is that Gabriel is a man. If the situation were reversed and it were a rich male actor paying support to a female no one would bat an eye. There is a lot of gender bias here.

        As for moving, parents cannot move far away without the consent of the other parent unless they go to court and get an order to allow it. And that is the way it should be. Why should a child be separated from one of his/her parents just because mommy or daddy found a new love? That’s not fair to the kid or to the other parent. The child’s needs come before what either parent wants. So, no. Stopping her from taking his child to live in another country was the right move.

      • TIFFANY says:

        No. It kicked off when Gabriel wanted his name on their daughters birth certificate. Halle’s defense when they went to court was she had more money so the judge reviewed CS. That is when it hit the fan. Halle was done and expected him to just go away.

      • Snowflake says:

        Well, considering Halle’s husband beat the cr$p out of him, and he couldn’t take modeling gigs while he healed, I say he deserves every dime. Not to mention, when he tried to take some modelings gig that involved travel, Halle tried to use that against him re custody. Because he couldnt take thise modeling gigs asnd make money,he asked for more support. Tbh, there’s plenty of baby momma’s, oksana, Denise Richards, etc, that largely owe their lifestyle to massive child support. He did not get that much and I think he deserves every dime and then some for the shit she put him through. Plus, he seems to be a great dad. And I’m sure all these baby momma’s aren’t celibate, so you could say their support is paying for their boy toys.

      • Amber says:

        No @Emma. First of all, Halle didn’t put his name on the birth certificate. That right there is f*cked up. They were together for years and were together for a while after Nahla was born. As others have mentioned, everything was fine between them until Aubry HAD to take Berry to court to fight for custody and get his name on the certificate. He had no rights. In the middle of all of this, one of Halle’s tactics was to say that Aubry did not have the funds to maintain their daughter’s lifestyle. She started with the money. Wouldn’t it be standard anyway for child support to be worked out? She fought him on custody, accused of him of being a racist, abusive, of pushing her nanny, and of course, of dying their daughter’s hair, with the Thanksgiving beatdown taking place the day after the move to France was denied. He’s won all of that, as he has won every time Halle has taken him to court. I can’t believe that in an article about Berry and Olivier’s divorce you’re acting like Berry simply wanted to move on with her life, ignoring what garbage all that was, as Berry who is not French, doesn’t speak French, doesn’t have a career in France, has no family in France, and is no longer with her French spouse, would have absolutely no reason to be there.

      • swak says:

        @Snowflake. Don’t put Denise Richards in the same statement with Oksana. Denise has a job and works. When she took care of Charlie’s and Brooke’s twins when Brooke went into rehab, she did not request any more money to help with them. Oksana does nothing and expects a lot.

      • Snowflake says:

        @ swack
        Yes, you are right. I should not have put denise Richards in there. She does get massive support but she has done a lot for Charlie and his kids. I didn’t know she worked too. My bad.

      • Emma - The JP Lover says:

        @Snowflake, who wrote: “Well, considering Halle’s husband beat the cr$p out of him, and he couldn’t take modeling gigs while he healed, I say he deserves every dime.”

        (Blinks) What are you talking? Gabriel wasn’t taking modeling gigs ‘before’ he got his butt beat. Ironically, the beat down on Gabriel happened when he dropped Nahla off ‘after’ we learned that Halle was pregnant. I’m just saying that nothing is ever as one-sided as many here claim. Gabriel has played his part in all of this. Do you really think Olivier just jumped Gabriel out of the blue without any provocation at all?

      • Amber says:

        The Thanksgiving beatdown was November of ’12. Guess who was one of the highest paid male models in 2012? http://models.com/models/Gabriel-Aubry/1 In case you think that’s light and Aubry doesn’t work, take a look at some top money guys, http://models.com/rankings/ui/MoneyGuys-All/2342#2342. The tippy-top male models get one or two campaigns a year. They just don’t get the work or make the money that the women get. Aubry will never make so much money that Berry won’t have to pay child support. It’s not because he never works, has no savings, or what have you. It’s just that Halle makes a helluva lot more and it’s her own fault for trying to play that hand by pointing out their income disparity.

        Berry announced her pregnancy April of 2013 http://www.celebitchy.com/290426/halle_berry_is_officially_pregnant_with_her_second_child_a_boy_at_46/ Kid was born in October. She wasn’t pregnant at Thanksgiving. You also didn’t address other points other people have raised. So once again, what are ya’ll who are determined to argue that Aubry’s a participant in this, basing that opinion on?

        What is your theory as to why Aubry would pick a fight with Martinez (right after winning the case to keep Nahla in the states), in Berry’s driveway, with only her friends, family, and staff as his witnesses and then beg the police to look at the security footage, only to find that the cameras had been moved? And why was Martinez, who was just Halle’s fiance then, even at the handover to start with?

      • Liv says:

        Emma, yes, I totally believe that he went at him without provocation. And even if he provoced him there’s no excuse to beat the father of your stepdaughter up while she’s around. He’s a violent idiot and both of them wanted to teach him a lesson because they couldn’t move to France.

    • LAK says:

      Emma, perhaps you came to the party late, BUT Gabriel and Halle absolutely got on to begin with. I have the copy of vogue magazine in which she talked about what a blessing it wss to have Gabriel be the father of her kid despite the relationship not working out -september 2010 if you are interested.

      Gabriel followed her around the world while she filmed her projects, and it wss all good. Until 2 things happened not necessarily at the same time,

      1. Gabriel went to court to add his name to the birth certificate.

      2. She met Olivier.

      Suddenly she was giving interviews about him being a racist, how she believed in the one drop theory, how he was a bad parent who probably abused Nahla and or the nanny, what a terrible prrson he was, even dug up some ex-girlfriends to say what an abusive, horrid man he was.

      Look at CB archives to see the time lines and events. And she took him to court for every little thing, all the while calling him a bad parent.

      To extent that we started to joke on CB that he needed to start doing pap strolls to prove to the public that he wasn’t a bad parent. An allegation that was always investigated by the courts and found not to be true, including that nanny incident where he was supposed to have pushed the nanny whilst holding Nahla. He must have read this blog because soon he started doing just that, and that’s what turned his image around in the court of public opinion because it was very clear that he had a good relationship with the child no matter what allegations Halle was throwing at him. And every time she took him to court, she would ask for full custody which was always turned down.

      By the time they got round to the money, so much else had already gone down and it was quite clear that she was the aggressor and she was telling lies.

      Then came the infamous thanksgiving beatdown. That came after an extended period of Halle trying to move to France with Nahla and simultaneously trying to strip Gabriel of his parental rights.

      I’m definitely not mistaken in my recall, because it’s all in the CB archives.

  7. Crumpet says:

    This conscious uncoupling thing is certainly easier on the children, than the reverse. I like the trend and hope it continues – not that I hope people will divorce.

  8. Leah says:

    Maybe aubrey isn’t as easy going as everyone think. I always though halle and aubrey were both too blame for the utter mess they created. Most people were led to believe aubrey is some kind of saint because of his looks and the general dislike for her played a part in how that situation was perceived.

    • swak says:

      Did you see Aubrey play the press in all of this? No, he never played it out in the press like Halle did. So, he either has some good lawyers and was taking their advise or he is truly that laid back.

    • Amber says:

      What was one time, besides suing for custody that Aubry started any of it? In fact, outside of responding to the accusation that he dyed Nahla’s hair, I can’t recall one time that Aubry even publicly commented on things. What is the argument for Halle? What is the actual argument, using real details and evidence, against Aubry? Making assumptions (it doesn’t take two to tango) or attacking what you think other people think and believe, (like @Naya saying Aubry could do this or that and people would still support him), isn’t an argument for, or a defense of, Halle. What if I said that I think ya’ll are basing your opinions on this off of what the Daily Mail and TMZ have lead you to believe? Or how about I just assume that people only side with Halle because she’s the woman in all of this, and beautiful, famous one at that? It’s not really an argument.

  9. Jessie says:

    Good for them and the kids!

  10. Tiffany says:

    I do not think they get along, I think it is more that they have to behave. The press is waiting for one of them to implode.

  11. sauvage says:

    My take on it is that Gabriel Aubry is more the passive-aggressive type. There’s nothing “passive” about Oliver Martinez’s aggression, though. My guess would be that with Halle and Olivier, everything is out in the open, and that they therefore get along way better, as long as the lines are clear.

  12. Beatrix says:

    Maybe she finally seeing someone. She needs it. They both do.

  13. marymoon says:

    Olivier seems to have primary custody of the boy, court-ordered or not … I think Halle has quickly learned that she can’t pull the same crap with Olivier that she got away with on Gabe … and that if she wants to spend time with her son, she has to play nice. Olivier got ahead of her on this, and she hasn’t got an attack dog now to sic on HIM.

    • AbsoDefno says:

      Oliver has primary custody.
      Something must of happend, since he has known anger issues.

      • marymoon says:

        He may have threatened to expose all her issues … she certainly has enough.
