“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,” the couple said in a joint statement to PEOPLE. “We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus of what is best for our son. We wish each other nothing but happiness in life and we hope that you respect our and, most importantly, our children’s privacy as we go through this difficult period.”
Olivier’s incident at LAX, when he hit another man with their 1-year-old son Mateo’s car seat, allegedly put a strain on their relationship. The breaking point in their relationship allegedly came after Olivier was sued for the incident last week.
