It looks like Halle Berry is NOT willing to allow Olivier Martinez to be the petitioner (the one who officially files for divorce); she has filed divorce papers for the second time, using her and Olivier’s legal names this time. I still don’t know what advantages come with being the petitioner in a divorce in California; perhaps this is just part of the bitterness of their split?
An insider said:
Things were extremely bitter with them as the marriage went on and in the end. Finally they both tried to file against each other. It was always like that, very heated and a lot of competition and battling between them. Two extreme tempers and people that love to fight.”
Goodness. They have a prenup and both want joint custody, so it doesn’t seem like there’s that much to fight about, is there? The only people really benefiting from these types of maneuvers are the attorneys.
Hopefully things will calm down. Maceo is just a toddler: they have many years of co-parenting ahead of them, so they need to establish some kind of working relationship for their son’s sake!
