Back in December, the world was led to believe that Halle Berry was engaged to her longtime man, Olivier Martinez. Mostly because he bought her a big ol' emerald green ring and the jewelry store owner took it upon his or herself to say the two were engaged.
Turns out they weren't. Turns out it wasn't an engagement ring, either. It was just a giant, expensive 'I love you and you're hot' ring.
But now, according to TMZ, Halle Berry is indeed engaged. For real this time. And yes, the actress once told Oprah that marriage would never again be an option for her.
Halle is also reportedly asking a judge to allow her to move to France with Olivier and her three year-old daughter, Nahla. Why does she have to ask a judge? Because she's in a long, drawn out custody war with her ex, Gabriel Aubry.
Aubry is apparently pissed off about the decision, because now it's going to be even harder for him to visit their daughter. But if Halle and Gabriel tie the knot and become husband and wife, the judge would probably look upon that more favorably than her just moving to France with a boyfriend. Because we all know how sacred and permanent marriage is. Especially in Hollywood.
TMZ reports: “No word on when the two will marry, but we're told a marriage will DEFINITELY take place.”
After seeing the original ring that Olivier gave Halle, I can only imagine what her engagement ring is going to look like. I hope it's big enough to make up for lying to Oprah. She did that.
