attends Premiere Of CBS Films' "Extant' at California Science Center on June 16, 2014 in Los Angeles, California.

Hollywood actress Halle Berry has started divorce proceedings with French husband of two years, Olivier Martinez. The pair have a child together, a son, 2-year-old Maceo Robert Martinez.

They addresses their future plans for co-parenting a statement that broke on TMZ.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for 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.”

According to TMZ, personality differences caused the split. A source told the tabloid, “They’re just very, very different people. He’s a very macho guy, and things just didn’t jive.”

Halle also has a beautiful daughter Nahla, with ex-boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry. 

The actress was married to baseball player David Justice in 1992 for 5 years, then ‘sex addict’ musician Eric Benét from 2001 to 2005.

      Not surprised at all.. she is either crazy or innately skilled in attracting crazy men.

    I’m not surprised. I remember watching an interview on E few weeks ago and she didn’t even remember it was her wedding anniversary. The interviewer was the one who reminded her and she looked so absent. If you ask me she’s just using these men for their genes and sperm. She doesn’t seem like the commitment type. I wish them the best

      what a load of nonsense……..what’s so great about their sperm?? She can practically have any guy on this planet!!!! I f I was in her fortunate position I certainly would be looking for wealthier and better looking sperm doners…….and certainly sperm doners with calmer temperaments. More likely the other way round and the the guys used her for her genes…..lets face it she is beautiful.

      @Pat, her first child was with a model and if you look at this one and Gabriel you’ll see a vague resemblance (I think) . Not every woman is looking for a rich man. Halle Berry has never dated or married up. These guys don’t have their biological clocks ticking so I don’t know how you would even imagine they’re using her for her looks when they could have any pretty young thing they want. She didn’t bother hiding the fact she was desperate about having kids. She is no spring chicken you know and you should know how men are besotted with younger women. That’s my opinion anyway.

      Will the guys have her? H.B can’t marry someone who’s wealthier than her. It’s all about her and she needs to be in control. Her exes like Eddie Murphy and Wesley Snipes who were richer than her in their hey days didn’t treat her right. Calmer temperaments? How come when Olivier was with his other women we never heard stories? Kylie Minogue still speaks fondly of him. I have read David Justice’s account and it is not dissimilar to Eric Benet’s account. D.J has moved on fine. I know the danger of a single story but she must be the common denominator in her relationships. She used to say she had low self-esteem and felt suicidal a lot. I wish she could find a fine guy, a nobody who will love her. Beautiful woman.

      “mrs chidukane, don’t be so quick to judge (and unkindly too). Halle has issues from her childhood to deal with. Her mother is white and her father African-American. Her parents divorced when she was four years old and she never ever saw her father again, in one interview she said she had no idea if he was alive or dead. Halle saw her mother beaten every day by her father, even hit on the head with a bottle, even kicked down the stairs. That was her childhood, that was the spirit and seed of marriage that she grew up with, violence, abuse, physical and mental; the husband constantly beating the wife, EVERY day, the wife/woman suffering abuse/subjugation/domination EVERY day, till she was four years old.

      All this, apart from Halle herself also suffering discrimination and identity issues from other children in school; she wasn’t black enough for the black people and not white for the white kids; all of that on a child from the very beginning of life, she was in hell at home and in hell in the outside world, nowhere was a safe place. Cut her some slack, please, give her a break, and you who are perhaps so perfect, or at least, are blessed to enjoy a good marriage, spare just a little time, jsut a few minutes to say a prayer.

      I’m not judging her. I had issues from my childhood too and my parents are divorced. My dad was physically abusive towards my mom and actually abandoned my mom in her 30s with 5 kids. I was horribly bullied in js1 in secondary school. In fact, I’ve been through a lot! I will be the last to judge Halle or try to pull her down. That was not my intention.

    Awwwwies what happened to my “Cat woman”? Halle baby it’s ok! Sometimes it just doesn’t work out. I don’t ve anything awful to say about her. She’s looks hot as usual in the above pix. I remember years ago she’s told Oprah she will never get married again but the model dude changes all that when she met him ( Gabriel Audry) hmm this thing called love tho smh.

    Makes you wonder. Such a beautiful woman, after the third time you can’t say it’s the man. What’s up with you Halle, what are you truly looking for in a partner?

    If there’s anything one can learn from Hollywood it’s how to write a darn good memo on a divorce.

    It is important for someone to tell Halle Berry that one can be single or alone and be happy. Tomorrow now this one will ask her for child support.

    Halle I guess u don’t know what u want, I remembered one of ur previous interview with Oprah, after ur divorce with Eric benet u said u r done with marriage and u will rather be crush by a moving train instead of being in marriage again, now here u r divorcing ur 3rd husband, I guess marriage is not for u, but I believe u will be a great and amazing mom to your kids

    Halle must be a very unstable woman. For her to be ending her third marriage, the problem must be coming from her.

    BN!!!!! Nawa for una o. I could care less about Halle Berry and how many men she has married and ran off. But for you guys to reduce an accomplished musician/artist like Eric Benét to merely a ‘sex addict’ is another lower notch for you.

    She clearly has a problem, major 1…. i once watched her interviews, and she wasnt so nice, people say her personality sucks….it shows… is marriage dating to you? you cant even commit 5years….
    that model ex boyfriend/baby daddy of hers dodged the bullet.
    you try ones,it just didnt workout
    you bounce back a second time….tough luck, you attract douche bags
    but hun 3rd time?

    I’m surprised that everyone is placing the entire blame on Halle. This type of mentality “that when a marriage fails, it is the woman’s fault” needs to stop! What if the men also have a part of the blame? Why must it be entirely the woman’s fault? For goodness sake, please come out of this stupid mentality that our society has forced us to have. Men and women have faults in marriage and not just the woman.

      we are likely to think that way when it’s the third time for the woman……..just saying.

      Relax @Surprised. I think people would have given her the benefit of the doubt if this was her first time at the rodeo. 1st divorce, mighta been the guy’s fault – ditto the second. But third divorce? People start looking sideways at the person who’s the common denominator in all these marriages…

    i feel so bad hearing fellow ladies say Halle has a problem. she may have, but if you do not have any encouraging words, kindly leave her to face her demons. What i think she needs is a man that is cool, compassionate but not too compassionate, firm, infact, she needs a father figure in her lover. not every body who got abused as a child could get over it.
    relationship judges! oya take your medals!

    Wow. So Halle Berry is beautiful, rich and….HUMAN. How dare she?!? No one offering comments on here, including myself, knows her personally so we cannot say with any authority why any of her relationships fail. It’s misogynistic to lay the blame solely on her shoulders. To be fair, it takes two to make a successful relationship, or to fail at a marriage – it isn’t fair to just blame Halle.

    Perhaps she gets attracted to the wrong type of man, but to say she should avoid all relationships is a bit spiteful. So she fails at one marriage and tries again, human beings were not meant to exist in this world alone, we are built for companionship. Divorce is a public admission of failure, it’s quite distasteful to respond so gleefully to someone else’s pain.

    The longevity of a relationship isn’t determined by how good looking the woman (or man) is, it’s just that we live in a heteropatriarchy which encourages women and men to see beauty as currency. Hence the reason why some of the comments reflect some Schadenfreude from women, because she’s beautiful, so they enjoy seeing her hurt.

    Halle’s situation is not exceptional. Many celebs have 3+ marriages. See also: Liz taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor, Joan Collins, Geena Davis, Ivana Trump, Liza Minnelli, Billy Bob Thornton, Richard Pryor, Mickey Rooney etc. The list is endless.

    It’s not entirely surprising that so many Black men cheer her pain because apparently problems with White men are deserved if Black women don’t choose Black men, even if they’ve been with Black men for decades as well and beaten by them. Abuse and difficulty in a marriage crosses racial lines so Halle could easily be with awful Black men or White men. Personally I wouldn’t call anyone crazy for leaving a relationship, only a mental health expert can make such a certification.

    Finally, men are not car keys, so “Why can’t _____ keep a man?” is a strange question. You keep cars & books. you don’t “keep” men. They’re not property without a voice OR culpability.

    Guys, none of you know what she is going through. Halle has been in a couple of abusive relationships. She only hears from one of her ears and guess where that came from? She wasslapped across her face so hard that it bursted her eardrum. Till date she is deaf in one ear. She is so petite so you can imagine if a man lays hands on her how much pain she will be in. I feel she is afraid of staying long enough in a marriage to get to the point of physical abuse so she is probably always on the defensive. The previous relationship didn’t really help this marriage either.

    This website is full of delusional women. Halle is the common denominator in 3 marriages. She has a problem. Women call a spade a spade. If it was a guy y’all be sayinmg crap, now it’s a woman excuses abound.

  27. Nothing NEW!!!

    I knew it! Halle must have issues.
