Hollywood couple Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez have announced they are to divorce after two years of marriage.
The US actress and French actor, both 49, said they had come to the decision with a “heavy heart” and “move forward with love and respect for one another”.
The pair have a two-year-old boy called Maceo and they said they were focusing on “what is best for our son”.
It will be Berry’s third divorce after her previous marriages to baseball player David Justice and singer-songwriter Eric Bennet.
The actress, who wed Martinez in 2013, won an Oscar in 2002 for her lead role in Monster’s Ball.
She met him after she split from model Gabriel Aubry in 2010 following a five-year romance.
Martinez, who used to date Australian singer Kylie Minogue, starred in the 2002 film Unfaithful.
The reasons for the divorce have not been confirmed but the TMZ website said Berry has cited irreconcilable differences.
Berry also has a daughter, Nahla, from her previous relationship with Aubry.
TMZ reported a source saying Berry was not asking for joint or primary custody of Maceo, but rather what was in “the best interests of the child”.
