The couple released a statement this morning, “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 for 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.”
The site is also reporting that money will likely not be an issue because the actors had a prenup. A source told the publication that the issue was a “personality difference” between the two and that Olivier’s alleged assault of an LAX worker in January (and subsequent civil suit) has only damaged the relationship further.
According to TMZ, the duo have a two-year-old child, Maceo, and instead of asking for joint or primary custody, Halle is reportedly asking for whatever is in “the best interests of the child.” We have a feeling her bitter feud with ex Gabriel Aubrey over their daughter Nahla has made Halle cautious in how she proceeds with her custody agreement with Olivier.
Despite the rocky marriage, Halle is apparently expecting a quick and easy divorce. We guess we will see about that!
We had a number of clues that things weren’t going well for the pair, who were married in 2013: When we saw Halle in July, the A-list star was noticeably missing something important — her striking emerald engagement ring! The Frankie & Alice star and her French hubby used to barely leave each other’s sides, in the past six months we’ve barely seen the two together, if at all. That’s never a good sign!
A source told us in July, “Halle and Olivier’s marriage is all but over. They haven’t spent time together in months, but Halle isn’t ready to go public with the split. That’s why she’s wearing those gold rings – to distract from the fact she’s not wearing her emerald wedding band.”
Oddly enough, our photogs caught Halle, Olivier and Maceo out a Halloween fair two weekends ago. The feuding couple was all smiles while out and about. Just proves you never know what’s going on inside a relationship …
It’s understandable that the mother-of-two wanted to keep her relationship woes under wraps. This is her third failed attempt at a happily ever after!
