It’s been a bad month for Halle Berry. After her CBS television show Extant was cancelled in early October after bad reviews, bad ratings and two seasons, the 49 year old Academy Award winner is also getting divorced!
In a joint statement with husband Olivier Martinez, 49, Berry said, ‘It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. We move forward with love and respect. 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.’
Berry and husband of two years Olivier Martinez have a two year old child together, and have been through a lot of highly publicized drama that included Martinez attacking Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry, who she has her first child with. The reason for the divorce, however, has nothing to do with Aubry, but is said to be due to a lawsuit filed against the couple after Martinez allegedly attacked an airport employee in January of this year.
