“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement to People magazine. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son.” The couple has a son together, two-year-old Maceo.
This is the third divorce for the actress, who is in an ongoing legal battle with Gabriel Aubry, the father of her seven-year-old daughter, Nahla. She was previously married to former baseball player David Justice from 1993 to 1997 and R&B singer Eric Benet from 2001 to 2005. She said in 2007 that she would “never, never get married again” until she met Martinez on the set of the 2012 film “Dark Tide.”
Martinez and Aubry got into an infamous altercation on Thanksgiving 2012 at Berry’s house, in which the two punched each other repeatedly after an argument. However, no one was charged with a crime. Martinez also made headlines this year after assaulting a paparazzi with a car seat at LAX.
