Less than a year after Halle Berrytied the knot with Olivier Martinez at a French chateau, the couple is being buffeted by claims that their marriage is on the rocks. First up is the New York Daily News, which says Halle, 47, and Martinez, 48, are "on the fast track to splitsville" and "living separate lives."
Seems the blame is being placed on their schedules: She's busy filming the CBS series "Extant," while he's doing a guest-starring gig on ABC's "Revenge."
Fueling the rumblings is the fact that the pair, who welcomed son Maceo last October, haven't been photographed together since December, when they looked less than thrilled to attend a Los Angeles production of "The Lion King" (photo at left). The actress also appeared at a post-Oscar bash on March 3 sans her wedding ring.
Star, meanwhile, contends the union is "already in shambles" and they're on "the brink of divorce."
"They have been fighting nonstop," says a source. "Things are really bad."
The tab also believes that Olivier is jealous of Halle's "Extant" co-star, Goran Visnjic, because -- wait for it -- "he knows [she] loves hot European guys."
"They have had some extremely vicious arguments, and every small thing is causing issues," chimes in another spy. "Halle is tired of Olivier telling her what to do. Both of them are very hot-tempered and stubborn."
That last part is at least true. Berry waged a protracted battle with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry over custody of daughter, Nahla, who turns six on Sunday. That bad blood culminated in a 2012 fistfight between Martinez and Aubry.
Not surprisingly, the denials have been swift and decisive.
"This story is completely untrue," Berry's rep insists to the Daily News. An insider adds to E! News that "nothing is further from the truth. They are both working and living happily as a married couple and as parents of a newborn, which inherently means you don't go out a lot."
