Whoa! David Justice and Eric Benet formed an unlikely fraternity on Twitter last night, when Justice took to social media to blast his ex-wife Halle Berry. Oh, the shade that was thrown.
It all started when Justice decided it was time to share his side of the story when it comes to the rumors that he abused Berry during their five-year marriage. (Berry previously revealed that one of her exes left her deaf in one ear, and many did the math to conclude that it was, in fact, Justice.) “Halle never said I hit her,” Justice tweeted, going on to not-so-subtly imply that the abusive ex is Wesley Snipes. "It was a former Hollywood boyfriend (WS) that she told me!"
Justice then went on to accuse Berry of destroying the characters of all her exes, including her baby daddy Gabriel Aubry, with whom she's been battling for custody of their daughter, Nahla, and her estranged husband, Olivier Martinez.
“Yup..Me, Eric, Gabriel and Oliver were all her ‘Knight in Shining Armor’ until it ends,” Justice tweeted. “Then we all become the worst guys in history. Just wait,Olivier..It’s coming! She insinuated that her daughter wasn’t safe around Gabriel..look it up and see the reason! Just wrong.”
As for why Justice chose now to tell his side of the story — he and Berry have been divorced for nearly 20 years — he tells the Daily Mail, "I had to say something after reading about Halle's recent marriage. 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."
He continues, "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."
Justice has since deleted most of his tweets, but left the ones below:
Of course, Eric Benét had to get in on it:
