Berry got married to her third husband, French actor Olivier Martinez, in 2013. Halle Berry is getting divorced from her husband of two years.

The pair has reportedly decided to call it a day because of their differing work commitments and their unhappiness at the amount of time they spend apart from each other.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the exes said in a statement on Tuesday. “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.”

Aubry that has caused one of the main sticking points for their marriage. They had planned to move to Europe, but a custody agreement forced Berry to stay in Los Angeles and therefore relocated Martinez there too, apparently against his wishes.

However, the ex-couple, both 49, also frequently had arguments, according to an unnamed source speaking to People. “They have had many issues… …they both have fiery personalities and don’t like to compromise. Halle has threatened to file for divorce several times after arguments.”

“They had an incredibly passionate bond with one another, but with that comes big highs and lows. They fell madly in love with one another, but at times it did feel like everything was against them,” another insider told E! News. “As a couple they constantly had a lot thrown at them.”

Martinez was also said to be depressed at being constantly located in Los Angeles while Berry was working on the TV series ‘Extant’ and abroad promoting her work. It’s the third time Berry has divorced, as she was married to baseball player David Justice from 1993 to 1997, and then musician Eric Benet from 2001 to 2005. In 2007, she went as far telling InStyle magazine that she would “never, never get married again”.
