Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez may be headed for a divorce, but from the looks of things, things have gotten better between the couple.
People reports the pair were spotted vacationing in Mexico. A source told the publication that while Berry has filed court documents for the divorce, Martinez has no desire to separate from his estranged wife and is working hard to make sure a divorce doesn’t come to pass.
“If Halle wants to call it off, Olivier would be fine with it because he never wanted the divorce in the first place,” a source told People, which noted that no plans exist for divorce proceedings to be put on hold, despite Martinez’s intent to not separate.
“No change in status,” a different source said. “As always they are friends.”
Although the divorce is still on, another source stated that since Berry filed for divorce, her relationship with Martinez has recovered immensely.
“When they first filed for divorce[last October], things were not good. However, the anger went away and Olivier is just very upset about the divorce. He never wanted the divorce and still doesn’t,” the source shared with People, adding that Martinez is still in love with Berry, his wife of three years.
In addition, the source noted that Martinez is especially concerned with maintaining his close relationship with the couple’s 2-year-old son, Maceo-Robert and 8-year-old Nahla, Berry’s daughter from her previous relationship with Gabriel Aubry.
“He loves Halle and his son. He wants to be with Maceo every day. To get a divorce and share custody of Maceo is not a situation that Olivier wants to be in,” the source adds. “He also wants to be around Nahla like before. He cares about Nahla like if she were his own.”
As for Berry and Martinez, the source mentioned to People that, “Lately, Halle and Olivier are getting along much better. They both came to their senses and are doing what’s best for the kids. They are enjoying spring break in [Mexico]. The divorce is still being finalized, and there is no change for now. But there might be a slim chance that they decide to stay married. There is still a lot of love between them.”
People reports the source saying the actor’s desire to cancel the divorce “doesn’t surprise me because being a father is really important to him. His son and Nahla are important.”
“Olivier came to being a father very late,” the source explained. “He wanted to be one for a long time and it was something he was kind of frustrated over. He discovered a side of himself since Maceo was born. He and Halle are trying, I believe, to give the kids some stability.”
