Berry and Martinez Finalize Divorce
The secret behind Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez’s impending divorce has been revealed. After three years of marriage, the former couple filed for divorce; however, the process was delayed due to disagreements regarding the custody of their now 9-year-old son, Maceo.

However, records that E! News obtained on August 23 indicate that the two have finally reached an understanding. Berry and Martinez will have joint physical and legal custody of Maceo.
Additionally, according to the agreement, the Catwoman actress will pay for Maceo’s tuition, school uniforms, and supplies for as long as he attends a private school, as well as pay Martinez $8,000 per month in child support and “4.3 per cent of any income she receives above $2,000,000.” Soccer is mentioned in the agreements as an extracurricular activity that Berry will also be liable for paying for.

Berry’s representatives have not yet responded to E! News’ requests for comment on the situation. Still, Martinez’s legal team has issued the following statement:
“The public documents filed in the matter should speak for themselves. The parties wanted more clarity regarding Maceo’s schedule and their respective time with their son. The Judgment was reached in mediation with the parties and their counsel.”
Halle and Olivier first met in 2010 while filming Dark Tide. Three years later, they were married when Halle was three months pregnant with Maceo and had a 15-year-old daughter named Nahla with her ex-husband Gabriel Aubry.

In a statement provided to E! News in October 2015, the ex-couple discussed their choice to be divorced:
“It is with a heavy heart that we have decided to divorce,” they shared. “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.”
Halle has found fulfilment in a new relationship in the years since the couple’s breakup. In September 2020, she and musician Van Hunt made their love connection public.
When they made their first red carpet appearance together the following year, Halle gushed about her new love.
“I wish I had met him sooner so I could have loved him longer,” the 57-year-old told Women’s Health in September 2021. “I just feel fulfilled. I feel happy in my life romantically, as a mother, as an artist. I’m a much better mother in this circumstance than I would have been had I stayed in a romantic relationship that didn’t serve me and didn’t make me feel the way I need to feel as a woman.”
The couple subsequently disclosed numerous details of their relationship on social media, with Van congratulating Halle on her birthday.
“This is the woman I love,” he captioned his August 14 post, which featured the actress in various face masks and face paint. “Behind the mask, she makes me laugh til I hurt. I see her behind the mask. I always have. Happy birthday, my love.”
