Olivier Martinez has confirmed the news that everyone was reporting anyway, that he has become engaged to Academy Award winner Halle Berry, a rep from jewellers Gurhan first breaking the news to People Magazine and then Martinez himself telling local Miami press. The actor confirmed the news in wake of further reports that he's attempting to make his way into the restaurant industry with the opening of new joint Villa Azur on Miami Beach with a simple "yes it's true" when asked whether he and Berry were engaged.
However he's been less than impressed that Gurhan sought to break the news first, stating "There is a jeweller taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this." It'll be the third marriage for 45 year-old old Berry; previously she was married to Atlanta Braves outfielder David Justice in the 90s, and in 2001 got hitched to singer Eric Benet, splitting up four years later. She also has a daughter from another relationship with model Gabriel Aubrey. It'll be the first marriage for Martinez.
