Halle Berry and her husband Olivier Martinez have reportedly “drifted apart”.

The 48-year-old Academy Award-winning actress married the French actor in July 2013 and they welcomed their first child together, son Maceo, in October.

But just 13 months into their marriage, new reports suggest they are heading for divorce.

“The whole family was supposed to go on a make-or-break holiday [to celebrate their one-year anniversary in July], but that fell apart because neither Olivier nor Halle wanted to make it happen,” a source told America’s OK! magazine. “They have drifted apart and only get together for the sake of Maceo. They’re just delaying the inevitable - announcing their split.”

Apparently Halle is concerned about Olivier’s alleged career slump.

It is claimed he has gained weight and a beard while she’s been working hard on her new TV show Extant in addition to other film projects.

“His career has dried up. He’s been taking small TV roles, but nothing that has tied him down for more than a handful of episodes,” the insider said. “Halle has lost a bit of respect for him. The spark they once had has burned out.”

Halle, who is also mother to six-year-old daughter Nahla from a previous relationship, unsuccessfully petitioned family court to move with Olivier and family to his native France.

It was previously claimed their Los Angeles lifestyle has impacted their marriage negatively for quite some time.

"Olivier's told Halle he's tired of LA and wants to move back to France. He wants her to follow him and for them to start a new life in Paris," a source told British magazine Closer. "They've already been having problems because of their hectic work schedules and it's causing a huge amount of tension."

A spokesperson for the couple had yet to comment on the claims at press time.
