Halle Berry married her long term beau, Oliver Martinez, today in France. However, both partners have led troubled love lives, and therefore, many people wonder if this romance will stick? Is Martinez the one? Even though Oliver left Kylie Minogue in 2007 amidst scandal. Sources say: “Her family and friends have been unhappy about her relationship with Oli for some time. Her parents, Carol and Ron, have been especially vocal about this — though her sister, Dannii, quite likes Oli, as she has a thing for French men.
Kylie’s parents have always hated his hold on her, particularly when he persuaded her to move to Paris for her radiography treatment in 2005; and when she abandoned her family Christmas in 2006 to again go to Paris and see him. She was desperate to make this work — but months of arguments and tears has made her realize she will never change him.” However, we know Kylie is not harboring any hurt feelings because she tweeted: “Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding.”
Apart from Martinez having trouble with the opposite sex, Halle Berry has also quite the troubled love life history behind her. Therefore leaving everyone to ponder: is Martinez the one? These are the most poignant romantic details:
- Halle Berry met Chicago dentist John Ronan in 1989 and they were in a relationship until 1991. However, things didn’t end amicable because Ronan sued Halle for $80,000. This amount was from unpaid loans, which helped to launch her career, and of course, Berry never repaid him. Halle made a counter attack by claiming that the loan had been a gift. The case was dismissed because Ronan hadn’t included Berry as a debtor when he filed for bankruptcy.
- Soon after Halle started dating the baseball star, David Justice, they married on January 1, 1993. When they separated in 1996, Halle made public statements in which she let it be know that she was depressed about the break up. In addition, Berry hinted that she might take her own life; confirming how troubled Halle was at that time.
- Her second marriage was to Eric Benét, in 2001. In 2003, they were separated. Two years later Halle divorced Benet. Sources reported that the reason for the separation was due to Benét’s addiction to sex, for which he received treatment in 2002.
- After all of this, Halle met Gabriel Aubry, (A French Canadian model). Halle gave birth to her daughter in March 2008. In 2010, the couple announced that they were going to split up. However, this wasn’t the end of the story. After their split, they began a bitter custody battle because Halle wanted to move to France and Aubry was afraid that he would not see his daughter again. After a few altercations, fist fights, and more legal troubles, the former couple were finally able to bury the hatchet and come to a mutually amicable custody agreement.
After reviewing all of the drama from both sides, and since there were two children involved, everybody sincerely hopes that Martinez indeed is the one. Hopefully, Halle Berry’s troubled love life has come to an end. From now on, Berry should live happily ever after with her new hubby and two kids.
Congrats are in order, and maybe some finger crossing, and knocking on wood for good luck as well.
