Are Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez Close To Splitting Up?

Hot Halle
Remember when Halle stripped down to her skivvies in 'Swordfish'?
The rumor mill is churning in full force today, and its latest subjects are Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez. More specifically, both The New York Daily News and Star magazine are saying the two actors are close to breaking up.

Halle, 47, and Olivier, 48, who got married in France last July have a five-month old son together, Maceo Robert, and Star says the new parents are “leading increasingly separate lives because they can’t stop fighting.”

In fact, the couple has not been seen together since December. Olivier was spotted last night having dinner at one of the Halle’s favorite restaurants, but not with Halle.

Halle, who has been filming her new television series Extant in Los Angeles, has made a few public appearance since giving birth but none with her husband. Most recently, the stunning mom was spotted at an Oscars party and posed on the red carpet … without a wedding band or the emerald engagement ring given to her by Olivier.

Star’s source also said, “Olivier thinks Halle is spending too much time working and trying to lose weight and not enough on their baby. She’s tired of him telling her what to do. Both of them are very hot-tempered and stubborn.” 

The Daily News reports the couple is on the outs, but not necessarily due to arguments. The paper’s gossip column [email protected] says “the pair have drifted apart because of hectic work schedules.”

E! News has slammed both reports however, and are claiming they have a source close to Halle who said, “nothing is further from the truth” when asked about the split reports. “They are both working and living happily as a married couple and as parents of a newborn, which inherently means you don’t go out a lot.”

Fair enough. Still, Halle hasn’t a had a lot of luck in the love department. The Monster’s Ball actress has been married and divorced twice and split with model Gabriel Aubry two years after their daughter Nahla was born. French actor Olivier dated a string of celebrities before marrying Halle, including Mira Sorvino, Kylie Minogue and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
