Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry’s divorce with Eric Benï¿½t has been finalized, with Berry getting almost everything, according to Celebrity Justice.
A quick recap: the once happy couple met in 1999 while celebrating the premiere of Berry’s HBO movie Introducing Dorothy Dandridge; two years later, on Jan. 24, 2001, they tied the knot in a low-key affair. Despite persistent rumors regarding Benï¿½t’s fidelity–or lack thereof (he eventually copped to being a sex addict)–Berry stood by her man until October 2003, when she officially separated from him. Berry filed for divorce last April, citing irreconcilable differences.
Benï¿½t, 33, went to court in June seeking to challenge the couple’s pre-nuptial agreement, but on Monday, a Los Angeles judge granted the divorce and upheld the terms of the couple’s pre-nup, which were not disclosed.
According to the syndicated Celebrity Justice, Berry, 36, got nearly everything she wanted out of the split, including her posh Beverly Hills mansion. She will also hold on to all assets she brought into the marriage.
Benï¿½t, on the other hand, will presumably continue to live in his considerably more modest crib in Studio City, California. The Milwaukee native will reportedly receive no spousal support from Berry.
Now thats funny – What did this fool expect?
Additionally, Berry will have reportedly have no formal ties to Benï¿½t’s 15-year-old daughter, India, with whom she had become very close.
Reps for Berry and Benï¿½t did not immediately comment on the Celebrity Justice report.
