Unfortunately, here’s a story that isn’t really surprising anyone out there, really. Reports say that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are calling it quits after only two years of marriage.
The couple have a 2-year-old son together, Maceo Robert, while Halle shares custody of her 7-year-old daughter Nahla with her ex, Gabriel Aubry.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement to People. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of 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.”
Honestly, this really saddens me because it seems like NO marriage in Hollywood has a chance these days. This summer was basically one divorce announcement after another and the worst part of it all is that each marriage involved kids. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck… I mean, why get married if you’ll end up divorced sooner or later in L.A., right?
We don’t know what the deal is between Halle and Olivier, but it seems like couples are better off not tying the knot (think Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell) or simply just being in a committed relationship together. Either way, here’s hoping these two will keep things amicable for the sake of their kids.
