After Two Divorces, Halle Berry May Have Dropped The Idea Of A Third One
Halle Berry, husband Olivier Martinez table divorce proceedings
BY MEERA JAGANNATHAN
AMERICAN star actress Halle Berry and her estranged husband, Olivier Martinez, have dragged their feet on finalizing their divorce for more than 10 months — and it now appears they’re ready to table the whole shebang, TMZ reports.
A document unearthed by the gossip site revealed a court clerk’s mandate that the two make a move on their divorce proceedings or risk the court dismissing their case.
Insiders, meanwhile, told TMZ Berry and Martinez are in no hurry to pull the plug. The actress — allegedly reluctant to go through with her third divorce — is reportedly holding out hope her husband can resolve his anger management issues.
She and Martinez, who’s father to her 2-year-old son, Maceo, and stepfather to daughter Nahla, 8, are reportedly also hitting it off co-parenting the kids.
Reps for Berry and Martinez did not immediately return requests for comment.
The Oscar winner and her French actor husband of two years filed competing divorce documents in late October, with both parents asking for joint custody of Maceo.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement at the time. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son (Maceo).”
A lawsuit concerning Martinez’s caught-on-camera scuffle with an LAX employee in January had been filed a week earlier and possibly fanned the flames of marital strife, TMZ reported at the time.
But the two seemed friendly post-divorce filing, even heading to Mexico on a family vacation in March.
The “Catwoman” star, 50, was previously married to ex-MLB player David Justice from 1992 to 1997 and to Grammy nominee Eric Benét from 2001 to 2005. She dated Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, Nahla’s dad, from 2005 to 2010.
