Halle Berry Wears Ring on Wedding Finger, Looks Incredible After Olivier Martinez Split News: Photos.

“I’m sure their attorneys have been reviewing the prenup, determining what’s communal and what’s separate, and then figuring out what their individual incomes are,” Robert Brandt, a family law specialist not affiliated with the divorce tells PEOPLE. Berry was rumored to be involved with Snipes after working on Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever.” Snipes was pinned by the gossip mill as the person who physically abused her, though the actress has remained mum on the topic.

In her divorce petition, Berry states that their prenup entitles her to all her earnings and assets since they married in 2013, and that neither will have to pay spousal support. The Extant actress stepped out looking incredible on Thursday, Oct. 29, just two days after filing for divorce — twice, including once under an alias — from Olivier Martinez. (The actor also filed his own documents.) Berry, 49, was photographed leaving the office of L.A. Berry married the Atlanta Braves right fielder in 1992 — but by 1997 she had filed for a restraining order and divorce. “For four years David was part of my life, every day, every hour,” she told People magazine soon after the split. “I do keep telling myself that this is one of life’s lessons and as long as I can learn something from it, then all the pain will be worth it.” The hopeless romantic married R&B singer Eric Benet, but he cheated on her. Brandt notes that child support cannot be waived, and the amount paid will “depend upon income.” For that reason, “both parties are going to have to give financial declarations of disclosure that lists everything they know about in terms of income, value of assets, debt, their monthly expenses, etc.” While both actors have raked in millions over their careers, Berry and Martinez’ respective assets have been a point of contention in their marriage. “He’s not happy she’s the breadwinner,” a source says of Martinez. Throughout their marriage, Berry, 49, starred in a total of six films and a network TV series, while Martinez, also 49, had guest roles on four TV shows.

She had a string of box-office hits under her belt including a role as Bond girl Jinx in Die Another Day and her recurring role as Storm in the X-Men franchise. Berry made The Hollywood Reporter’s list of Top Ten Highest-Paid Actresses in 2008, earning a whopping $10 million per movie, according to the magazine. They welcomed their son, Maceo, in October 2013. (Berry is also mom to a 7-year-old daughter, Nahla, whom she had with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.) “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce.

During her marriage to Martinez, Berry won accolades for her performance in Frankie & Alice, snagging a Golden Globe nomination, as well as an African-American Film Critics Association Award. Despite some box-office duds, she also closed a splashy deal in 2014 to hit the small screen in CBS’s Extant, for which she was reportedly paid upwards of $100,000 per episode. “Olivier is complaining that he and Halle are not spending much time together and that she is working too much,” a source told PEOPLE just months before their split. “He never wanted her to sign on for [Extant] and Olivier was hoping they would focus on family time together after Maceo was born.” Meanwhile, Martinez struggled to take his acting career to the next level.

After finding success in his native France, the actor made a splash in Hollywood with the 2002 erotic thriller Unfaithful, but his subsequent projects didn’t click with audiences. As for real estate holdings, Berry reportedly paid $8 million for a Malibu property in 2004, and dropped another $5.9 million on a Beverly Hills home in 2005. So far, Berry has expressed an interest in keeping the divorce proceedings as “easy and amicable” as possible, according to a source close to the situation.
