Olivier Martinez Confirms Engagement To Halle Berry
At the opening of his new restaurant Villa Azur in Miami on Saturday, Olivier Martinez finally confirmed his engagement to longtime gal pal Halle Berry. According to Miami.com, the French actor responded to the engagement rumors with a simple “Yes, of course it’s true!”
He also addressed rumors surrounding his lady’s engagement ring. “There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it’s a lie! They have nothing to do with this,” he said.
The emerald and diamond ring was actually designed by by Robert Mazlo, a jeweler from the Martinez’s Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood in Paris. He describes Mazlo as “a real artist” whose family has been designing jewelry for “kings and queens for many centuries.”
If true, this will be the third marriage for Halle. She was married to baseball star David Justice from 1993-1997 and to singer Eric Benet from 2001-2003.
The actress also has a 3-year old daughter, Nahla, with ex-boyfriend Canadian model Gabriel Aubry.
Olivier, 46, dated Australian singer Kylie Minogue for five years before splitting in 2007. This will be his first marriage.
