Today, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez announced their plans to divorce, and while some people may think that this announcement came out of left field, many were waiting for this. Their marriage was never going to work and this was obvious before they even walked down the aisle. Here are 7 signs that Halle and Olivier’s divorce was coming:
7. Halle’s Custody Battle with Gabriel Aubry
Halle and her ex Gabriel’s custody battle has been going on for years. When Gabriel filed court papers to seek joint custody of their daughter Nahla, things started to get messy. She claimed to have “serious concerns about her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father” and then tried to get permission from a judge to move to France full-time with Nahla, knowing that Gabriel couldn’t afford to visit.
Although their custody dispute seemed to be resolved back in 2012, Halle keeps taking Gabriel back to court. In 2014, she tried to get her child support payments reduced from $16,000 to $3,000 because Gabriel was reportedly just living off the payments. Later that same year, she took him to court, claiming that he was straightening and lightening Nahla’s hair. In 2015 she Gabriel back to court to try to lower her child support payments yet again. Talk about bringing the drama!
