Halle Berry Opens Up Post Divorce Filing From Olivier Martinez: ‘I’m Doing Okay, I Really Am’
Halle Berry is on her third divorce as she and Olivier Martinez are dunzo. It has not been easy as ex-husband David Justice tweeted that her accusations about him physically abusing her were false. She was previously married to Eric Benet who sought treatment for sex addiction and then was in a long-term relationship with Gabriel Aubry, which produced daughter Nahla, 7. Along with Martinez, the Academy Award winning actress has a son, Maceo, 1, who is currently battling chicken pox, as she filled Extra in last night: “Oh yeah, you should be in my house! Maceo didn’t go trick-or-treating cause he has the chicken pox, Nahla was a zombie cheerleader and we had a great [time] … 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?’ “ Looks like her children are helping to make the split a little easier and she wants the world and her fans to know that she is actually doing pretty well.
“I’m doing okay, I really am. I, I keep pushing and I’m really happy to be here.” Where was here exactly? Berry attended a charity event for the Jenesse Center, Inc., which helps with domestic violence and intervention sufferers. Their goal is to prevent it but Berry is no stranger to violence as she has said that she has been in abusive relationships and watched her mother get abused. “I saw my mother battered and beaten many years of my life and I felt helpless. And that’s what connects me to this organization. I have an understanding, a knowing. I feel like I have something that I can impart to these women. It seems like I’ve overcome it, but I really haven’t. In the quiet of my mind, I still struggle. So while I’m helping these women, I’m helping myself through it, too. And that’s largely why I’m here.”
It was even more important for her to be there to help her cope with the divorce as she said: “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.” We could not agree with you more Halle!
