Divorce. So hot right now. Halle Berry is all about it, having filed for a split from Olivier Martinez.

“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement. “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.”

Said a TMZ source, “They have a personality difference,” adding that the tipping point was a lawsuit resulting from an incident at LAX in which Martinez hit a man with a car seat.

“They’re just very, very different people,” the insider said. “He’s a very macho guy, and things just didn’t jive.”

Berry and Martinez met on the set of Dark Tide in 2010. Three years later, a pregnant Berry wed the Frenchman at Chateau des Conde in his native country.

The couple share a son, 2-year-old Maceo, and Berry also has a daughter, Nahla, 7, from her previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry.

Word is money won’t be an issue in this divorce, because the pair reportedly signed a prenup. That’s good news for Berry, who as recently as July was still paying Aubrey $16,000 a month in child support and continues to be locked in a five-year custody battle.

This will be Berry’s third divorce and Martinez’s first. Berry married David Justice in the 1990s and Eric Benét in the 2000s. In 2007, Berry told InStyle, “I will never, never get married again.”
