In celebrity breakups, there’s little room for nuance. Just ask Halle Berry.

Halle Berry Breaks Silence on Olivier Martinez Split.

Onward and upward! says she’s doing A-okay following her split from husband Olivier Martinez. Take for instance, the fallout that took place following the announcement that Halle Berry would be divorcing her third husband, French actor Olivier Martinez.

was spotted for the first time without a ring, since news broke last Tuesday that she and Oliver Martinez are divorcing after more than two years of marriage. The Extant actress broke her silence about the pair’s divorce on Thursday, Nov. 5. “I’m doing okay, I really am,” Berry, 49, reassured Extra’s Terri Seymour at an event benefiting the domestic abuse facility Jenesse Center in L.A. “I keep pushing and I’m really happy to be here because whenever you’re going through anything in life, when you step outside yourself and focus on others, that’s always the best remedy for any situation that you’d rather not be dealing with.” Us Weekly confirmed late last month that Berry and Martinez, 49, are ending their two-year marriage. David Justice, the former Atlanta Braves outfielder to whom Berry was married from 1992 to 1997, engaged in a round of gleeful schadenfreude with a string of tweets Tuesday, most of which have since been deleted. “Yup..Me,Eric,Gabriel and Olivier were all her ‘Knight in Shining Armor’,until it ends..Then we all become the worst guys in history,” Justice wrote. “Only the guys in the relationship with Halle know the real deal there will be another, of course. He’ll be called ‘The Best’ until it ends.” Justice, 49, continued. “Reading the latest Halle Berry Reports,it wasn’t me who hit Halle causing the ear damage.Halle has never said that I hit her,” Justice wrote. “It was a former Hollywood boyfriend (WS) that she told me ! #getyourfactsright When she first reported that she had been in abusive relationships,she wouldn’t name the ‘famous’ former boyfriend She was mad at me leaving the relationship so she and her Hollywood Team just tried to destroy my character.

Berry, 49, has recently been spotted out-and-about sporting a different ring, including last night at the Spectre: The Black Women of Bond Tribute, her first public event since the pair announced their split. The Extant star shared a sweet memory from this past Halloween: “Maceo didn’t go trick or treating cause he has the chicken pox, Nahla was a zombie cheerleader. Martinez later submitted his own paperwork, and cited irreconcilable differences. “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the estranged couple told Us in a statement on Oct. 27. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son. It had to be my fault,right?” “These guys’ behavior comes from knowing that the general public thinks something is ‘wrong’ with Halle Berry because she’s beautiful, famous, and yet can’t stay married. I was a pirate and she [Nahla], she’s like you’re a sexy pirate mommy, I’m like what do you know about a sexy pirate.” “I am not going to be defined by that number, yeah it’s coming.

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.” As previously reported, Berry and the French actor were photographed smiling with their 2-year-old son, Maceo, just days before announcing their split. There’s no better way for an insecure man to reclaim his id than to get a chance to publicly carve up an ex—all the better if she’s one of the world’s most desirable women.” Reinforcing his point about the double standard Berry faces, Williams tweeted “Like I said, divorces make Halle Berry a ‘failure’ but they make Steve Harvey an expert.” When it comes to Berry, 49, there are two competing narratives: You can either subscribe to “Halle can’t keep a man,” i.e. “there’s something wrong with Halle” or “Halle is an unlucky schmuck magnet,” which absolves her of any real responsibility when those relationships fall apart.

I’m going to take my five best girlfriends to a Caribbean island, we’re going to have a cleansing, we’re going to jump in the ocean butt naked and have a spiritual moment and bond and connect as women. In all of her previous relationships, Berry has been the more famous of the pair and therefore in a better position to shape and control narratives when they ended. When a person is A-list famous, their breakups are no longer just about two people ending a relationship; they are just as much about managing a public image, and that means involving publicists, agents, managers and others — professional crisis managers and information spinners. Both Halle and her partners are flawed people, perhaps ill-suited, and maybe just not good at being in relationships for any number of very human, complicated reasons that we are not privy to.

Only recently, with the introduction of “conscious uncoupling” has there been a gentler, more egalitarian model for public celebrity splits, one that acknowledges that relationships are hard, messy work, even for the preternaturally pretty. Not long after Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale split in August amid rumors of Rossdale’s cheating, Stefani debuted a breakup song called “I Used to Love You” and confirmed this week she was dating Blake Shelton. Social media has become the way for less-famous parties to advance their own messages, thereby chipping away at the carefully crafted facade of modern celebrity. We’ve witnessed this not just with Justice and Benet, but also with Christine Ouzanian, the nanny to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner who posted pictures of her new “drop-top Lexi” on Instagram soon after news broke that she’d had an affair with Affleck.

We see it in a Facebook post written by Sherae Clark-Williams, one of Lamar Odom’s cousins, who recently slammed Khloé Kardashian in a Facebook post for forcing her to sign a non-disclosure agreement before allowing Clark-Williams to visit her own relative at Sunrise Hospital.
