Eric Benet Dismisses Latest Halle Berry Rumor

Page Six claims the former sex addict and ex-husband of Halle Berry was stuck on a Berry lookalike stripper.

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."
