Halle Berry’s an­gry exes speak out

Lesotho Times - - Lifestyle -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Halle Berry is re­port­edly very up­set with ex-hus­band David Jus­tice.

The Os­car win­ner, who re­cently an­nounced her split from third spouse Olivier Martinez, is said to be in shock af­ter the former base­ball player lashed out at her on Twit­ter, ac­cus­ing her of try­ing to “de­stroy [his] char­ac­ter” by never pub­licly deny­ing ru­mours he hit her dur­ing their four-year mar­riage.

David hit out at Halle, 46, on his so­cial me­dia pro­file for fail­ing to help him clear his name over the years and in­sin­u­ated she was re­spon­si­ble for her sub­se­quent splits from sec­ond hus­band Eric Benet, Cana­dian model Gabriel Aubry and Olivier.

Benet voiced his sup­port for Jus­tice, tweet­ing: “My man at @23david­jus­tice is tweet­ing some truth dis’ mornin’!”

At the time of Berry and Benet’s di­vorce, it was widely re­ported that the singer was a sex ad­dict. Benet had booked him­self into re­hab, claim­ing that he took the de­ci­sion af­ter Berry is­sued an ultimatum say­ing “you do this or it’s a wrap”. How­ever, he has de­nied that he is a sex ad­dict, claim­ing that an ex­pert at the cen­tre had con­firmed that he was not an ad­dict, af­ter be­ing eval­u­ated.

A source close to the ‘the ac­tress, who di­vorced David in 1997, told gos­sip web­site Tmz.com that she has no idea what sparked his ver­bal at­tack be­cause she has never iden­ti­fied the former lover that abused her and left her par­tially deaf in her left ear, and has no plans to do so in the fu­ture.

Jus­tice re­sponded: “I just want to thank Halle for fi­nally squash­ing all of the ru­mors in the past,that I had phys­i­cally abused her,caus­ing the hear­ing loss.” How­ever, this was af­ter a lengthy, bit­ter rant that gave insight into his un­re­solved anger to­wards Berry.

The tweets that caused the drama be­gan with: “Read­ing the lat­est Halle Berry Re­ports,it wasn’t me who hit Halle caus­ing the ear dam­age.halle has never said that I hit her,” he said. “It was a former Hol­ly­wood boyfriend (WS) that she told me ! #gety­our­fact­sright When she first re­ported that she had been in abu­sive re­la­tion­ships,she wouldn’t name the “fa­mous” former boyfriend She was mad at me leav­ing the re­la­tion­ship so she and her Hol­ly­wood Team just tried to de­stroy my char­ac­ter. It had to be my fault,right?”

“Yup..me,eric,gabriel and Olivier were all her ‘Knight in Shin­ing Ar­mor’,un­til it ends.. Then we all be­come the worst guys in his­tory. Only the guys in the re­la­tion­ship with Halle know the real deal there will be an­other, of course. He’ll be called ‘The Best’ un­til it ends.” Both tweets have since been deleted.

The ath­lete told the Daily Mail On­line he felt com­pelled to air his feel­ings in the wake of Halle’s split from the French ac­tor, say­ing: “So many years ago, I didn’t say any­thing about the ac­cu­sa­tions that I abused her, but now I have three chil­dren, ages, 15, 13 and 11, two boys and one girl, and they can read this stuff and they have friends who will read it as well so I had to fi­nally come out and say once and for all I never hit Halle Berry.

“Back then it didn’t mat­ter, but it’s dif­fer­ent now. Halle never said I hit her but she never said I didn’t either, which was dis­ap­point­ing.”

He added: “I am not the face of Halle Berry’s exes, I won’t be go­ing on TV to talk about this. I just wanted to make sure my wife, my chil­dren and the rest of my fam­ily, friends and fans know the truth.”
