WESLEY SNIPES AND HALLE BERRY’S ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP
Halle Berry has confirmed quite a lot of times that she has been sexually and physically assaulted in her childhood and her adult life. Although she has never really mentioned the name of the abuser, after a statement that he is a very popular Hollywood actor, everybody assumes that Wesley Snipes is the abuser. In 1996, Halle berry told a magazine in an interview that she had bad luck with guys all her life. She said she had been at the ‘receiving end of manipulations and deceit in her relationships. In 1991, her failed brief relationship with Wesley Snipes, “left her crying all the time,” according to a production crew member. Halle then talked about a tormenting incident but did not reveal any name. One of her ex-boyfriends hit her so bad that she lost 80% of her hearing ability in the left ear as her eardrum was punctured. In 2004, Halle Berry revealed that she had been with various partners who abused her. But this one was the worst of all.
She had said that only after the hearing loss and her blood squirting on the ceiling, she realized that she had suffered a lot and that it was time to get out of the abusive cycle. It is still not clear to this day that whether Wesley was her abuser because neither did Halle Berry take his name nor did he respond to the rumors. Shortly after this, there were rumors that maybe her ex-husband David Justice or Christopher Williams whom she dated from 1991-1992 was the one that abused her. Following this, Christopher cleared the air by claiming the rumor was false and that he never hit her. He was the one to mention that Wesley Snipes busted her eardrums and not him. Then Justice too defended himself by putting out a series of tweets to end the speculation of him abusing Halle including a tweet where he used an abbreviation (WS) for Wesley Snipes to indicate him as the abuser.
Halley Berry has also been very open about her abusive childhood. She still remembers instances of her estranged father beating her mother in front of Halle and her sister every day. She feels that seeing her mother suffer lowered her self-esteem as well. She blames herself for wrong choosing partners who mimicked her father and after so many incidents of abuse failed relationships, Halle Berry is glad that she was able to get out of relationships whenever there was a hint of domestic violence and that she doesn’t tolerate anymore.
