The relationship between Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez
In July 2010, Berry and Martinez met on the set of Dark Tide in South Africa. In August of that same year, the two began dating. In January 2012, Berry was spotted wearing a diamond ring. Later, it was confirmed that Martinez proposed to her during the Christmas holidays. They married in a private ceremony in France.
In April 2013, it was confirmed that Berry was pregnant with the couple’s first child. In July of the same year, they were married in France. On 5 October, they welcomed their son Maceo.
Rumors that the relationship was on the rocks surfaced in 2014. The Oscar winner and the actor filed for divorce in October 2015 after two years of marriage.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to divorce. We move forward with mutual love and respect and a shared focus on what is best for our child. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and hope you will respect our privacy and, most importantly, that of our children as we go through this difficult period,” they said in a joint statement to People.
In December 2016, a judge ruled that Berry and Martinez were legally single, but the former couple continued to negotiate custody and child support.
