Gorge actress Halle Berry is reportedly engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez. The two sealed the pre-nuptial deal with an emerald and diamond sparkler. which Berry has been sporting, says People.com.
Berry and Martinez met nearly two years ago during the filming of “Dark Tide,” when they worked opposite each other. They went public with their romance in fall of 2010.
Martinez, 46, who was born in Paris and whose dad was a well-known professional Spanish boxer, has been pegged a casanova of sorts, dating a string of professional models, actresses, and top female industry bigwigs.
He has been linked to such entertainers as Mira Sorvino and English model and actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Pop singer Kylie Minogue dated Martinez for a few years, and when she battled breast cancer, he stood by her side before they parted ways in 2007.
As for Berry, 45, a walk down the aisle with Martinez would make it a third trip. Over the years, the Academy Award-winning actress has endured abusive relationships, one which left her partially deaf in one ear. Marriage to former baseball player Dave Justice in 1993, she claims, drove her to a much-publicized suicide attempt. After getting hitched to second husband, R&B crooner Eric Benét, in 2001, Berry alleged that he was a sex addict.
Berry, who has admitted publicly that she “stinks at marriage,” tried love again with easy-on-the-eye actor/model Gabriel Aubrey, after her divorce from Benét in 2005. The couple hung in there for five years and produced a daughter, 3-year-old Nahla. In 2010, the couple split and their bitter media circus breakup resulted in a nasty custody court battle, where there were allegations of verbal threats, racial slurs and concerns for the child’s well-being voiced by both parties.
