Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez file for divorce

28 October 2015, 09:32

Los Angeles - Halle Berry and actor Olivier Martinez are ending their two-year marriage and say they want to proceed with the best interests of their young son in mind.

The actors released a joint statement announcing the divorce on Tuesday, hours before Martinez filed a divorce petition citing irreconcilable differences in Los Angeles.

Martinez's filing seeks joint custody of the pair's 2-year-old son and lists Monday as their date of separation.

"It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce," the actors wrote in a joint statement.

"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."

Martinez’s filing did not indicate whether the pair has a prenuptial agreement.

But Berry's petition, filed by her attorney under the pseudonym "Hal Maria", states she has a prenuptial agreement with Martinez and wants to share the costs of raising their young son equally.

Berry won a best actress Academy Award for Monster's Ball. She has been married twice previously and has a 7-year-old daughter from her relationship with model Gabriel Aubry.

Berry and Martinez met while making the 2012 film Dark Tide. They married in July 2013.
