What a shame.
Sounds like Olivier Martinez couldn't handle the force that is Halle Berry, as sources claim her success as an actress was a huge reason behind the divorce filing this week.
The couple — who share a son, two-year-old Maceo — became one of Hollywood's hottest couples after meeting in 2010 while filming Dark Tide. At the time, Berry was already an established leading lady and Oscar winner with several hit films on her resume, while Martinez was a French actor trying to establish himself in the U.S.

This is where their career paths diverged.
The Monster's Ball actress continued to keep a full plate working both on the big and small screen — including her show Extant which she reportedly raked in $100,000 per episode.
Martinez, on the other hand, had a few guest spots on TV shows like Revenge and Texas Rising — which is still a lot to be proud of, in our humble opinion! But when you're wife has a net worth of a casual $70 million…
After two years of marriage, the gap in careers was reportedly too much to handle for Martinez:
"Everything about her emasculated him: She was beautiful, iconic, employed and the breadwinner. They were living off of her and that entitled him and it enraged him – there was a duality there."
Another source close to the couple shared:
"[Martinez] is not happy in the U.S. and he's not happy with the state of his career. He's not happy she's the breadwinner."
Can't say we feel bad for him…
Miz Berry has a lot to be proud of, and rightfully so!
