Halle Berry has filed to represent herself in her divorce case with ex Olivier Martinez five years after their split. According to documents obtained by reporters the actress filed to represent herself after former attorney, Marina Zakiyan Beck, signed off on the change on July 30. Martinez is being represented by celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
The former couple filed for divorce in October 2015 after two years of marriage, citing irreconcilable differences and asking for joint custody of their 6-year-old son, Maceo. “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” Halle Berry and Martinez said in a joint statement at the time. ”We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.”
It was previously reported that the pair’s divorce was finalized in December 2016, with the two agreeing on sharing physical and legal custody of their son. In May 2020, reports noted that Halle Berry and Martinez’s case was still active because they failed to file a formal custody arrangement and were due back in court.
