Halle Berry to divorce French husband after two years

IT'S OVER: Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez announced their divorce yesterday (Oct 27)

OSCAR-WINNING actress Halle Berry has filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Olivier Martinez.

The couple, both 49, announced their shock separation in a joint statement yesterday (Oct 27).

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” they said. "We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son.”

The couple have a two-year-old son, Maceo, and Berry has a daughter, Nahla, seven, with Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.

According to People, both are seeking joint custody of Maceo, but Berry's filing has an attached form about visitation, saying they will "share custody as is in the best interest of the child" but that Martinez should provide transportation to and from visits and need permission to take Maceo out of California.

Sources claim the marriage was ruined by ‘personal differences’, which, it is thought, followed an incident in January where French actor Martinez allegedly pushed an LAX airport worker to the ground with a baby car seat.

“They’re just two very different people. He’s a macho guy and things just didn’t jive,” an insider told the TMZ website.

Berry, who is worth an estimated £50 million, was previously married to baseball star David Justice and singer Eric Benét.

It is believed the actress moved to end things
