It’s becoming painfully apparent to Eric Benet that the press will never let him escape his past relationship with Halle Berry.
Despite announcing an engagement to Prince’s ex-wife, Manuela Testolini, earlier this year, Benet is still dealing with headlines about his own ex-bride. Page Six reports that the self-professed former sex addict was at Cheetah’s Gentleman’s Club in Times Square last week and was entranced by a stripper who bore a striking resemblance to Halle.
The dancer, “Jordan,” told the gossip column that he initially said his name was “Edgar,” but soon after revealed his true identity. She adds: "I said, 'You're Halle Berry's ex-husband,' and he said, 'Once upon a time,' and smiled."
A rep for the R&B singer dismissed the story, shouting, "This is cheap gossip! We're not going to answer these questions."
