Almost one year ago, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez announced that they were calling it quits after just two years of marriage. But now, it looks like the couple, who share a two-year-old son together, might be putting a halt to the divorce proceedings.
Berry or Martinez, who both cited irreconcilable difference for cause of the split, apparently has not moved forward with the filings. And while it sounds like it might be all thanks to reconciling and fighting for their marriage, a source tells E! News that the holding is over “continued discussions about money and Maceo.”
Meanwhile, sources tell TMZ that Berry 1. doesn’t want a third divorce under her belt, 2. she thinks Olivier might change, 3. the French actor is active in Berry’s 8-year-old daughter’s life, and 4. there’s no rush to finalize the divorce.
The couple, however, shouldn’t twiddle their thumbs because per TMZ, a clerk has motioned for the case to be dismissed if the apparently estranged couple doesn’t make a move.
Berry has been very active on social media and after perusing her Instagram page, it looks like the beauty has been ditching her wedding ring. The actress, who also just celebrated her 50th birthday, recently appeared in a video for W Magazine, also without her ring.
When announcing the breakup, Berry and Martinez said in a statement:
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce. 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.”
