Halle Berry’s Ex David Justice Claims He Never Abused Her; Hints at Wesley Snipes

David Justice attends In Touch Weekly's 5th Annual 2012 Icons + Idols at Chateau Marmont on September 6, 2012 in Los Angeles, California.

David Justice went on a Twitter tear last night, defending himself against persistent rumors that he beat Halle Berry when they were married from 1992-97, and seeming to point the finger at Wesley Snipes as the real abuser.

With Berry heading to divorce court for the third time after she and Olivier Martinez split last week, her first husband took to Twitter and went off.

“Me, (second husband Eric Benet), (boyfriend) Gabriel Aubry and Olivier were all her ‘Knight in Shining Armor’ until it ends,” the former MLB star tweeted.

“Then we all become the worst guys in history.”

Justice alleged that Berry did nothing to squash rumors that he had abused her during their five-year marriage, which ended in 1997. The “Extant” star had previously stated that a “famous” ex-boyfriend punched her in the ear, resulting in partial deafness.

In his Twitter rant, Justice mentioned “WS” as the “famous” ex who abused Berry. The two actors dated in the early 90s.

“Reading the latest Halle Berry Reports, it wasn’t me who hit Halle causing the ear damage. Halle has never said that I hit her,” he tweeted.

“It was a former Hollywood boyfriend (WS) that she told me! #getyourfactsright.”

Chris Brown Offers to Teach Australians About Domestic Violence

8th Annual BTE All-Star Celebrity Kickoff Party

After Australia banned him from entering the country due to his domestic violence case, Chris Brown is now offering to educate Australians about the issue, apparently hoping to be let in.

Activists have been campaigning against Brown’s tour of Sydney, Melbourne and Perth due to his 2009 assault of Rihanna. He pleaded guilty to felony assault and was freed from probation this year.

The experience, Brown claims, now makes him the perfect candidate to help raise awareness. He used Twitter to explain:

Michaelia Cash, who was assistant minister for Immigration and Border Protection before a Cabinet reshuffle last week, said of Brown’s situation, “People need to understand if you are going to commit domestic violence and then you want to travel around the world, there are going to be countries that say to you: ‘You cannot come in because you are not of the character we expect in Australia.’”

Cash, who is now minister for women, added, “This is a government that is not afraid to say: ‘no.’”


Judge Finds Terrence Howard Was Coerced Into Divorce Settlement

 In this Thursday, Aug. 13, 2015, file photo, actor Terrence Howard walks into a Los Angeles court for a hearing regarding a divorce settlement with his ex-wife Michelle Ghent.

Superior Court Judge Thomas Trent Lewis’ ruling means Howard and his ex-wife, Michelle Ghent, will now have to renegotiate the financial terms of their divorce.

“The evidence of extortion or duress was unrebutted,” Lewis said, according to the Associated Press.

Howard claimed he signed a 2012 settlement to end his marriage to Ghent out of fear she would leak private details about him, including phone sex recordings with other women and a video of him dancing naked in a bathroom.

The agreement entitled Ghent to a share of Howard’s earnings, which would include a portion of his salary from the hit Fox series “Empire.”

Ghent’s lawyers have said she denied extorting the actor in a deposition and argued he didn’t prove threats she made in 2011 forced him to sign the agreement a year later. She was not allowed to testify at a recent hearing because her attorneys did not file a sworn declaration from her before the proceedings began.

Howard’s four-day hearing revealed numerous private details, including that he had cheated on Ghent during their engagement, he was physically violent with his first wife, and he has already divorced his third wife.

Lewis also heard a 2011 call in which Ghent berated Howard and threatened to sell private information about him if he didn’t pay her money by the end of the day. Howard’s accountant sent Ghent $40,000 in response to the call, which he called “hush money.”

The actor called it “blood money.” He told Lewis that leaking the information at the time would have ended his acting career.

Ghent has accused Howard of multiple instances of domestic violence and has an active restraining order him. But Howard denies he abused Ghent.

Work on the show’s second season continues. Howard spent four days in court during a recent hearing, testifying for portions of three of those days. According to the AP, his absence didn’t impact the show’s shooting schedule.


Columbus Short Snatched Up by Bounty Hunters at Universal Studios

Columbus Short

Columbus Short can’t seem to stay out of the headlines.

The former “Scandal” star was pursued and detained by bounty hunters and sheriffs in Los Angeles as the actor was hosting his album release party.

According to TMZ, Short was bum-rushed inside of a club at Universal Studios City Walk…just as he was about to do a soundcheck. Turns out he failed to appear in one of his domestic violence cases, and the judge issued a bench warrant to force him in.

Per TMZ:

In the video (seen here), Short is seen arguing with one of the bounty hunters … saying they freaked him out and he was afraid for his life. We’re told the bounty hunters were there because they’ll get a cut of his $500,000 bail. We’re told the bounty hunters swooped in because they believed Short was about to flee the county.


Ray Rice’s Wife Janay: ‘He’s Been Made Out to be This Monster’ (Watch)

Janay Rice

Ray Rice’s wife believes the country needs to move past what he did to her in that elevator.

Janay Rice told ESPN’s Jamele Hill that the abuse she suffered at his hands that night had “never happened before, and that’s not him. He’s been made out to be this monster and he’s not a wife beater. He’s someone who made a mistake, he’s human.”

She added, “He’s done everything he’s supposed to do to redeem himself.”

Ray Rice, meanwhile, told ESPN he now understands the seriousness of domestic violence. The former running back is hoping to be picked up by an NFL team.

Watch an excerpt of Janay’s “Outside the Lines” interview below:


Ray Rice Apologizes to Fans in a ‘Dear Baltimore’ Letter

Suspended Baltimore Ravens football player Ray Rice (R) and his wife Janay Palmer arrive for a hearing on November 5, 2014 in New York City. Rice is fighting his suspension after being caught beating his wife in an Atlantic City casino elevator in February 2014

Ray Rice is apologizing to Baltimore for punching his girlfriend-turned-wife.

The former NFL running back, who was suspended last season by the NFL after video surfaced of him punching his then-fiancée Janay in a hotel elevator, wrote a letter of apology Friday morning to the city and to Ravens fans.

“The last seven years that my family and I have spent in Baltimore have by far been the best of our lives,” Rice said in a letter issued to The Baltimore Sun. “From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all for the love and support you’ve shown my family and I throughout my football career. We’ll always be grateful for the love we’ve received from all of our fans and supporters, and for winning a Super Bowl.

“To all the kids who looked up to me, I’m truly sorry for letting you down, but I hope it’s helped you learn that one bad decision can turn your dream into a nightmare. There is no excuse for domestic violence, and I apologize for the horrible mistake I made. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me, and I hope to make a positive difference in people’s lives by raising awareness of this issue.”

The Sun reported that Rice plans to move to New York as he attempts to return to the NFL.

Commissioner Roger Goodell initially suspended Rice for two games, but after video showing Rice punching Janay Palmer, his current wife, was made public, the commissioner said he made a mistake and suspended Rice indefinitely.

Rice later appealed the suspension and won. The three-time Pro Bowler was reinstated by the league in November but has not signed with a team.

He went on to thank the Ravens organization, owner Steve Bisciotti, general manager Ozzie Newsome and coach John Harbaugh.

“I love you all very much, and I’ll always be proud to say I played for the Baltimore Ravens,” Rice said in the letter to the Sun.


Bobbi Kristina’s Neighbor Reported Fight at Her Address a Week Before

Bobbi Kristina Brown

One of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s neighbors reported a domestic dispute at her address just eight days before she was found face-down in a bathtub, according to a 911 call released Tuesday, reports Atlanta’s Fox5.

A security guard for Ellard Village in Roswell called 911 on January 23 after a neighbor reported “some kind of domestic dispute” in the parking lot outside Brown’s unit. “Just had a neighbor call and report that there was, uh, people hitting each other and swinging outside in front of their–it’s the townhomes in Ellard Village,” said the guard, who identified himself as Rick.

Roswell Police said when they arrived, no one was home.

Bobbi Kristina's townhome


Brown, the only child of Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston, was found face-down in a bathtub at the townhome on Jan. 31 and has been hospitalized in Atlanta since.

Three years ago, on Feb. 11, 2012, Houston was found face-down and unresponsive in about a foot of water in a bathtub in the Beverly Hilton hotel just before the Grammys. She later died, and authorities concluded that she had accidentally drowned. Investigators found a dozen prescription drug bottles in the suite and listed heart disease and cocaine use as contributors to her death.

The ongoing investigation and limited details being provided in Bobbi Kristina Brown’s case have fueled speculation about her condition and the circumstances that led to her hospitalization.

Christopher Brown, Bobby Brown’s Boston-based attorney, released a statement Tuesday railing against several media outlets for publishing “false reports” about Brown’s condition and the family’s plans for her.

“This is a criminal investigation and the integrity of that process requires silence,” Brown said in the statement.
