Olivier Martinez doesn't want his and Halle Berry's son to go through a custody war.
The 49-year-old actor is reportedly desperate for the couple's two-year-old son Maceo to not be stuck in the middle of any disagreements like Halle's daughter Nahla, seven, was when she split from Gabriel Aubry.
He is believed to have been horrified by the bitterness between the 'Extant' actress and her ex, gossip website TMZ reports.
Meanwhile, Halle recently submitted a second lot of court documents, filing for divorce from her husband of two years after speculation that her original documents, filed on Monday (26.10.15), may be invalid as she used aliases and gave her estranged husband the documents herself, something forbidden under Californian law.
Meanwhile, a source admits the 49-year-old actress is "very sad" about the couple's split.
They said: "She is sad, very sad. This is never easy. Olivier has definite anger management issues. I think this was coming for a long time and [Berry was] not wanting to have to do this."
The pal also claims that the 'Dark Tide' star was "intimidated" because Halle "was the breadwinner".
They added: "He was emasculated by her beauty and her power, and his temper could erupt."
