They had fallen out over his January 2015 incident at LAX, in which Olivier hit airport worker Ronaldo Owens with a car seat and pinned him to the ground. Halle and her son were there too. A $5 million lawsuit was filed against Halle and Olivier in mid-October over the attack.
This “exacerbated their conflicts,” it said.
“They have a difference in personality,” the website also said. “They’re just very, very different people.” He’s a very macho guy and things just didn’t work out.’
The two made headlines in 2012 when they fell out with ex Aubry on Thanksgiving. The model dropped daughter Nahla off at Berry’s home in Los Angeles.
At this point, Martinez and Aubrey got into a verbal altercation that soon turned into a physical altercation. Aubrey claimed the SWAT actor threatened to kill him. Both men were hospitalized for their injuries.
As a result of the incident, Aubrey was arrested and issued a restraining order.
