Now more people are talking about Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez’s split. Sources are saying that Olivier’s “fiery temper” caused problems in the marriage, and that temper was triggered because she was the primary breadwinner. Uh-oh.
A source explained:
Oliver comes from a world where he was easily intimidated by her ability to work and that she was the breadwinner. He was emasculated by her beauty and her power, and his temper could erupt. He was never physically abusive towards her. He was very possessive in a very kind of caveman way but was never abusive to her or the family.”
Do men like this still exist in the 21st century? Who am I kidding: unfortunately, they do.
The source added:
He had an explosive temper in a way that was profoundly frightening. You never knew when he would explode.”
I can see where Halle would reach a point where she’d had enough if he was that volatile. Who wants to live with someone who could “explode” at any moment? Remember how badly he beat up Gabriel Aubry when he was dropping Nahla off after a visit: we know Olivier does have a temper. He’s currently facing a $5 million lawsuit filed by an LAX worker whom he allegedly hit with a car seat.
The source said:
Olivier has definite anger management issues. I think this was coming for a long time and [Berry was] not wanting to have to do this.
“In any sort of situation, you never know what will get his temper up – and it’s unnerving to live with that. Imagine that every single day.”
I can’t imagine that. Well, I can, but there’s no way I could LIVE like that.
