Halle, 47, was snapped filling up her car in Los Angeles, with her ring noticeably absent from her left hand. Many have been quick to see this as confirmation that her eight-month marriage is in trouble.
It has been reported that American Halle and her French partner Olivier are living "completely separate lives because they can’t stop fighting". They have not been seen together in public since 7 December, and last month Halle decided to attend the Oscars on her own.
On Sunday, Olivier was spotted flying out of LA with his own wedding ring firmly in place – similarly, his band was clearly visible as he dined out earlier in the week.
The couple are now proud parents to five-month-old son Maceo and Halle has six-year-old daughter Nahla with her model ex Gabriel Aubry, who fought to stop Halle moving to France with his child.
Like many new mums and dads, it is likely that Halle and Olivier take it in turns to look after their baby boy; when Halle attended the Oscars.
By her own admission, having a baby has been a big adjustment for Halle as she juggles motherhood with getting back in shape, and work on her new TV show Extant.
“You know, I’m working on a television show now, so I’m juggling working and being a mum and breast feeding while I’m working,” Halle told People at the start of the month. “It’s a whole new life for me now all over again, having a new little baby again.”
The Oscar-winner, who said she was “working hard” to lose her baby weight, described being a parent as “fantastic” and her son as “more fantastic”. But she doesn’t see any more children in her future.
“I’m surprised I had the one I just had!” she admitted. “So I doubt God is going to bless me again. I think I’m done.”
