It’s official!

Halle Berry filed for divorce from Olivier Martinez. The reason Halle cited irreconcilable differences. As for money, we’re told it’s not an issue because the couple had a prenup.

A source close to the couple told TMZ, “They have a personality difference.” And the incident at LAX, where Olivier hit a guy with a car seat, exacerbated their conflicts. Olivier got sued for the incident last week and our sources say the couple argued about the suit, and it became a breaking point.

The couple, both 49, married in July 2013 in a private ceremony in France. Berry announced in April of that year that she was expecting a baby with Martinez. Their son, Maceo, was born in October.

It was the third marriage for Berry, who had previously been wed to baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benet. It was the first for Martinez, who had been linked to singer Kylie Minogue.

Halle and Olivier will share custody of their son, Maceo Martinez, 2. Halle has a 8-year-old daughter, Nahla Aubry, with former underwear model Gabriel Aubry.

One source tells us the 2 year marriage went into a tailspin a week ago … to the point each of them had it with the marriage, but Halle filed first

The couple issued a joint statement … “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.”
