Before Olivier: A Look Back at Halle Berry’s Past Loves – and Breakups.

The couple, who are parents to 2-year-old son Maceo (Halle is also mom to Nahla, 7, from her relationship with ex–boyfriend Gabriel Aubry), announced their separation via a joint statement to PEOPLE. “It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” reads the statement. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. On Tuesday, Oct. 27, the Oscar-winning star and her husband, Olivier Martinez, announced to Us Weekly that they were divorcing after two years of marriage. 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 the world comes to terms with yet another split from a string of celebrity break-ups, we’re looking back at the actress’ former flames, from her tumultuous relationship with Aubry to her first marriage in the early ’90s. In addition to Martinez, the 49-year-old actress has dealt with her fair share of romantic highs and lows with former flames like David Justice, Gabriel Aubry, and Eric Benet.

The actress filed a restraining order against the athlete in October 1996, after he reportedly stood outside of their Hollywood Hills home threatening entry. Things also got physical between Aubry and Berry’s soon-to-be ex-husband during a brawl outside Berry’s home on Thanksgiving 2012; the two were treated for injuries.

The Monster’s Ball star revealed nearly a decade later that she attempted to commit suicide at the time. “I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me,” she recalled to Parade in 2007. “She sacrificed so much for her children, and to end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do.” Berry wed the R&B singer in 2001, but their love story similarly ended in divorce court in 2005, after it was revealed that Benet had cheated on his wife just two years into their marriage. He subsequently checked into rehab for sex addiction, which he addressed in a September 2008 interview with New York Magazine. “Sex addiction is a real thing, you know,” the remarried dad of three reflected. “In retrospect, it’s not what I would label my situation.” Instead, Benet described the demise of their marriage as “making some stupid-ass, stupid-ass mistakes” on his part. Although the relationship was short-lived, there was no bad blood between the two actors. “After my last relationship [with actor Michael Ealy] broke up I was feeling like, well, it wasn’t that I didn’t want to be in a relationship, it’s just that I thought it would be okay to be on my own,” she tells InStyle. After two failed marriages and intensive counseling, Berry found a fresh start in French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, whom she met at a Versace photo shoot in 2005.

The parents of Nahla, now 7, who were together from 2005 to 2010, engaged in an ugly public battle over who would gain custody of their young daughter. In June 2014, the A-list actress was ordered to pay Aubry a whopping $16,000 per month in child support after a judge ruled that Berry could not move their daughter to France full-time.
