Halle Berry and her third husband Olivier Martinez were married for two years, and they’ve been dragging out their divorce longer than that. They could technically start celebrating the anniversary of when they first filed divorce papers. Halle and Olivier may love keeping it messy, but the court system that has to deal with them clearly doesn’t.
Halle filed for divorce in October 2015, after months of rumors that her marriage was over. Olivier responded by filing divorce papers of his own. Halle filed for divorce a second time because she used fake names in her first filing. In 2016, the courts sent a letter to Halle and Olivier telling them to make some moves on their divorce before it gets dismissed. The rumor at the time was that they were having second thoughts about the whole thing. Toward the end of 2016, Halle and Olivier worked together on a custody agreement of their now-4-year-old son Maceo, but they still had to divide up property and assets.
That was a year and a half ago, and nothing has been settled. Radar Online has obtained some documents that were recently sent to Halle and Olivier from the Superior Court of Los Angeles, and you can practically feel the judge impatiently tapping at their watch. Halle and Olivier were given an ultimatum: either they submit a final judgement on their divorce ASAP, show up to court on June 27th, or have their divorce dismissed.
Radar points out that California law states that if a divorce hasn’t been figured out in 18 months since the filing date, then the courts can force both sides into a resolution process.
If Halle does appear in court to settle her divorce, she’ll most likely be on her own. Unless she wants to make things more dramatic, then she might bring her alleged new boyfriend. According to Life & Style, Halle is dating none other than her John Wick: Chapter 3 co-star Keanu Reeves. I’ll hold while you all gasp in shock.
“Halle and Keanu are dating. They started seeing each other even before they began filming. As soon as they started getting to know each other, they realized there was something there that was stronger than a friendship.”
The source adds that Halle and Keanu are trying to keep everything hush-hush for the moment, and that Keanu is “totally” Halle’s type. I would just say that Keanu is a great match for Halle. All that time spent filming such intense action scenes for those John Wick movies has Keanu equipped with the skills to dodge and duck any object that Olivier might throw at him.
