Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez Divorce Over Irreconcilable Differences

Reports from People.com indicate that Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry have officially filed for divorce after two years of marriage.

Berry in her divorce asks for no spousal support for either party, and for the costs of raising their child to be shared as per terms of their prenup, Martinez on the other hand is asking for issues of spousal support to be sorted out at a later date. The actress states that all of her earnings and assets are her property per their prenup.

Both are seeking joint custody of their 2-year-old son, Maceo-Robert, but Berry's filing has an attached form about visitation, saying they will "share custody as is in the best interest of the child" but that Martinez should provide transportation to and from visits and need permission to take Maceo out of California.

The French actor is being represented by Hollywood divorce guru Laura Wasser, who has previously handled divorce cases for the likes of Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Ryan Reynolds, and many more.

Berry and Martinez met in 2010 on the set of Dark Tide. They tied the knot on July 13, 2013, at the rustic Chateau des Conde in his native France. Their son Maceo-Robert was born on Oct. 5, 2013.

According to sources, the split was in part caused by disagreements over their living situation. Berry had planned to raise her two children (she has a daughter, Nahla, from another relationship) in Europe, but was never able to make the move because of ongoing custody issues with Nahla's father, Gabriel Aubry. Meanwhile, Martinez "never loved living in L.A. full time," according to a source. "[He] just isn't happy in L.A."

Martinez's temper also allegedly played a role in the split. "He has a violent temper," the source told PEOPLE this summer. Martinez got into a thanksgiving brawl with Aubry in 2012, and was caught shoving an LAX employee with a baby seat earlier this year. The employee is now suing the couple for $5 million.

This is Martinez first divorce, and the third for Berry, who weded baseball player David Justice in 1993 and singer Eric Benét in 2001.
