Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez met more than five years ago on the set of a movie and announced their engagement in 2012. In 2013 the couple married quietly in France, and a couple of months later their son Maceo was born. But now, it seems, the marriage is ending. According to TMZ, Berry has filed for divorce from Martinez. She is reportedly citing irreconcilable differences.

A source told TMZ that they have a “personality difference.” Their issues seem to stem from an incident at Los Angeles International Airport earlier in the year, during which Martinez attacked a guy with a car seat, which resulted in a lawsuit last week.


Berry and Martinez also made headlines three years ago when Martinez attacked Gabriel Aubry, the father of Berry’s daughter, Nahla. That incident resulted in a restraining order.

"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," Martinez and Berry said in a joint statement.
