Is Halle Berry engaged to Olivier Martinez? Rumors about Berry and her latest beau have been rattling around since the start of the year, but in an email to ABCNews.com, her publicist said “no comment.”
This morning, Us Weekly reported that the two are en fiance (as the French Martinez might say), citing a source close to the couple who said that he popped the question with an emerald and diamond ring over the holidays. The “Monster’s Ball” actress has recently been photographed with a sparkling bauble on her ring finger.
Berry and Martinez, both 45, have been dating since fall 2010. She’s been married twice, to baseball player David Justice and R&B singer Eric Benet. She had a daughter, Nahla, now 3, with model ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Her relationships with all of them were troubled — Berry once admitted that she attempted suicide three years after marrying Justice.
Martinez has had his share of high profile paramours. He dated Mira Sorvino, Kylie Minogue and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley before meeting Berry on the set of “Dark Tide,” which comes out this year.
While she seems happy with Martinez, in April, Berry told The Sun’s Garth Pearce that she doesn’t want to get married again.
“I wish I had known then that I was not the marrying kind,” she said. “It would have saved me a lot of time, heartache and grief over the years.” She added, “I have done it twice and I am not going to do it again. The traditional form of marriage is not for me.”
New year, new Halle?
