Personal life

Berry at the 2003 Comic-Con International in San Diego, CA.

Berry has been married twice. Her first marriage, in 1992 to former baseball player David Justice, ended in divorce in 1996. Justice played with the Atlanta Braves and experienced a measure of fame as the team rose to prominence in the early 1990s. The couple found it difficult to maintain their relationship while he was playing baseball and she was filming elsewhere. Berry has stated publicly that she was so disappointed after her breakup with Justice that she considered taking her own life.[58] But she could not bear the thought of her mother finding her body.[59] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high resolution version (526x676, 59 KB) Halle Berry, San Diego Comic-Con in 2003. ...

Berry's second marriage was to musician Eric Benét. They met in 1997 and married in early 2001 on a beach in Santa Barbara.[60][61] Berry credited Benét with support after she was involved in a February 2000 car accident. She suffered a concussion and left the scene of the accident before the police arrived, resulting in a misdemeanor charge. The incident became fodder for comedians. Berry stated she felt "really good about the resolution"; she pled no contest, paid a fine and was placed on three years' probation.[62] Eric Benét Jordan (born October 15, 1966 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin) is a platinum-selling American R&B and Neo-soul singer. ...

The couple, however, separated in 2003.[61] After the separation, Berry stated, "I want love, and I will find it, hopefully".[63] While married to Benét, Berry adopted his daughter, India.[61] The divorce was finalized in January 2005.[64] She was not entertaining thoughts of suicide as she had after splitting with Justice: "I would never, ever, ever think of doing that again."[65]


In November 2005, Berry began dating French-Canadian supermodel Gabriel Aubry, ten years her junior. The couple met at a Versace photoshoot.[66] After six months with Aubry, she stated in an interview, "I'm really happy in my personal life, which is a novelty to me.

Berry revealed on Extra that she plans to adopt children. "I will adopt if it doesn't happen for me naturally", she said. "I will definitely adopt. And I probably will adopt even if it does happen naturally".[63] Later she stated, "I never want to be married again. I guess you could say I have bad taste in men. But I no longer feel the need to be someone's wife. I don't feel like I need to be validated by being in a marriage".[68] Berry insists the couple's life is already complete without the need for a marriage and feels "more married than ever before."[69] Extra is an entertainment television news program covering events and celebrities which debuted on September 5, 1994. ...


Berry said that it was her experience playing a mother in "Things We Lost In The Fire" that opened her mind to the possibility of motherhood.[70] After initially denying rumors, she confirmed in September 2007 that she was three months pregnant.[71] Berry hired security guards after receiving racist threats to her unborn baby from a stalker saying her child will be "cut into hundreds of pieces."[72] She stated "Gabriel is a wonderful person and I am just happy I’ve found someone really special to have a baby with."[73] She has stated that she hopes to have a second child right away.[74]

In the media

Berry has stated that the manner in which people have reacted to her is often the result of ignorance. Her own self-identification has been influenced by her mother. She is quoted as saying

After having many talks with my mother about the issue, she reinforced what she had always taught me. She said that even though you are half black and half white, you will be discriminated against in this country as a black person. People will not know when they see you that you have a white mother unless you wear a sign on your forehead. And, even if they did, so many people believe that you have an ounce of black blood in you then you are black. So, therefore, I decided to let folks categorize me however they needed to.[78]

Berry and Ted Kennedy are taking part in a nearly 2000-house party cell-phone bank campaign for Barack Obama.[79] said that she will "collect paper cups off the ground to make his pathway clear."[80] For other persons named Ted Kennedy, see Ted Kennedy (disambiguation). ... “Barack” redirects here. ...
