The two seemed to be in good spirits as they strolled through a parking lot side by side.

But on Monday the X-Men: The Last Stand beauty looked glum as she headed out on a shopping trip alone.

According to TMZ, the marriage unraveled in the past week after they hit a ‘breaking point.’

They had apparently been fighting over a January incident at Los Angeles Internaional Airport, where Martinez hit airport employee Ronaldo Owens with a car seat, pushing him to the ground.

Halle and their son were also there. A $5 million lawsuit was filed in mid-October against both Halle and Martinez for the attack.

This ‘exacerbated their conflicts,’ it was reported.

‘They have a personality difference,’ it was also claimed by the site. ‘They’re just very, very different people. He’s a very macho guy, and things just didn’t jive.’

As far as the divorce, Halle made the first filing under a pseudonym – using the name Hal Maria – her birth name was Halle Maria Berry, although she goes by Halle.

The documents, published on TMZ, also show that Halle used a fake name for her son Maceo – calling him Mac Martin, and her husband, who she referred to as Oliver Martin.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Halle has a fortune of some $80million. However she and Martinez both signed a prenuptial agreement prior to their marriage.

‘The expectation on Halle’s part is for a quick, non-contentious divorce,’ said a source.

It later emerged that Martinez had also filed for divorce, having hired well-known divorce attorney Laura Wasser. He asked for joint custody of Maceo in his filing.

Sources also told TMZ that Halle ‘is not asking for joint or primary custody, but rather what is in the best interests of the child.’

A source insisted to People that Halle was ‘okay.’

Halle and Martinez wed in July 2013 in a romantic ceremony at the Chateau des Conde in Vallery, France.

Their marriage came six years after Halle told InStyle: ‘I will never, never get married again’.

They had met in 2010 on the set of their drama Dark Tide, which wasn’t released until 2012.

The two suffered a set back early in their marriage when their plans to relocate to France were brought to a halt by a court ruling that Halle could not take her daughter with her.

Before Frenchman Martinez started a romance with Halle, he spent most of his time in the country.The ruling meant that the family instead made a home in Los Angeles.

The two again made headlines in 2012 when they got into a fight with her ex Aubry during the Thanksgiving holiday.

The male model was dropping daughter Nahla off at Berry’s Los Angeles home when he and Martinez got into a verbal then physical fight.

Aubrey claimed the S.W.A.T. actor threatened to kill him. Both men had to go to the hospital for their injuries.

Aubrey was arrested and issued a restraining order as a result of the incident.

Halle has also been in a contentious situation with Aubry when it comes to their financial arrangement. In July she went to court in an attempt to reduce her child support payments.

The Their Eyes Were Watching God star wanted the judge to reduce the child support she’s paying Gabriel from $16,000 a month to around $3,000 a month. The case is thought to be ongoing.

In August came the first rumblings that Halle and Martinez were over – as she was not seen wearing her diamond and emerald engagement ring.

But it was claimed by TMZ that she had lost the bauble in January 2014 when at the Acapulco International Film Festival where she received the Silver Jaguar Award.

Halle says the ring either fell off her hand or she left it on a table and someone took it.

Another sign that Halle and Martinez were on the outs came in September.

The former Bond girl didn’t seem to remember her wedding anniversary with Martinez when she talked to E! News. For her first anniversary the two went to Hawaii.

This will be Berry’s third divorce and Martinez’s first.

Halle has certainly not had it easy in her romantic life, now having three failed marriages and a series of high profile romances turned to dust and splashed across magazine headlines.

In 1991 the actress claimed she lost eighty percent of her hearing in her left ear due to an abusive boyfriend, while she never named the abuser she says it was someone well-known in Hollywood.

During that same year her relationship with Wesley Snipes came to an end, the two starred in 1991’s Jungle Fever.

In 1993 Halle was sued by a former boyfriend, bankrupt dentist John Ronan, for $80,000 after he claimed she owed him for helping launch her career (the two dated from 1989 to 1991).

In January 1993 Halle married baseball player David Justice after giving her number to the athlete through a mutually-known reporter.

Berry and Justice divorced in 1997, after the actress denied being suicidal and depressed after the split.

Halle wed her second husband songwriter Eric Benet in January 2001. They finalized their divorce in January 2005, after Benet underwent treatment for sex addiction in 2002.

In November 2005, Berry began dating French Canadian model Aubry after meeting at a Versace shoot.

She gave birth to their daughter Nahla in 2008 and they split two years later in April 2010, without ever marrying.

For Martinez this was his first marriage after dating some of the most beautiful women in the world, Halle included in that list.

The actor has dated stunning celebrities such as Mira Sorvino, Kylie Minogue and Spanish actress and model Goya Toledo, garnering the title of a womanizer in the gossip rags.

More recently he dated English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Michelle Rodriguez, who he co-starred with in S.W.A.T.

One of his more significant relationships was early on, 1994 to 1998, with French actress Juliette Binoche.
