Halle Berry & Olivier Martinez Get Congrats From Ex Kylie Minogue

You know that awkward moment when your ex announces his or her engagement on Facebook and all your mutual friends are waiting to see if you’re going to Like it?

Well not only did Kylie Mingoue Like it, she also Tweeted her congratulations:

“Congrats to Olivier Martinez and Halle Berry!! #wedding.”


The beautiful Australian pop star dated Martinez for five years before they split in 2007. In fact, remember Minogue’s battle against breast cancer? She gave him props for helping her through those times.

“He was incredible,” Minogue said at the time. “He didn’t hesitate in canceling work and putting projects on hold so he could be with me. He’s the most honorable man I have ever met.”

Halle Berry and Olivier actually remain on good terms with Minogue, and in May of last year, the two even took in a Kylie Minogue concert at the Hollywood Bowl.

Halle and Olivier haven’t confirmed the rumors, but the report surfaced yesterday after a source told Us Weekly that he proposed to her.

Berry’s publicist replied, “no comment.”

But a rep for jewelry designer Durhan confirmed to PEOPLE that the French actor did give Berry a diamond-and-emerald engagement ring. Berry has been photographed wearing said ring in recent days. So if that doesn’t prove Halle and Olivier are engaged, I don’t know what does.

Halle once told Oprah she would never marry again, so probably the more shocking story here is that someone lied to Oprah.

“I will never marry again,” Halle told Oprah. “I mean it with every bone in my body.”

You know what else this means? Halle Berry doesn’t have bones. We should probably change the headline of this story now.
