‘I Never Hit Her’: David Justice Opens Up about His Divorce from Halle Berry, the Abuse Rumors and His Life Now.

“Over the past 20 years, I’ve heard people saying, ‘Isn’t that the dude who hit Halle Berry in the head?’” he said in a new interview with People magazine. Justice made headlines last week after he fired off a series of tweets slamming the Oscar winner for not clearing up rumors that he had abused her during their five-year marriage. “All I was trying to do was let the world know that David Justice is not the person who hit her on her head and caused her hearing loss,” he said about his online rant. Not only did [I] not do that, [I] never hit her, period.” Halle — who announced she is divorcing her third husband, Olivier Martinez, just last month — previously revealed one of her exes hit her so had she suffered permanent hearing loss in her left ear.

His current wife Rebecca, whom he married in 2001, had heard the stories too before they started dating, but chose to give him the benefit of the doubt. Though the actress never explicitly named her alleged abuser, many believed it to be David because of the 1997 retraining order Halle filed against him after their messy split. “For so many years, there has been this cloud upon the guys who were associated with Halle back then,” David said. “Halle has said that she was in abusive relationships but she didn’t name who the abuser was, so for many years I know a lot of people thought it was me.” As for why he hasn’t tried to clear his name in the past, David said, “I thought I was taking the high road, and as a result a lot of stuff was said about me, and because I didn’t saying anything back, a lot of people thought it must’ve been true.” Today, David is happily married to Rebecca Villalobos, with whom he has two children, Dionisio, 13, and Raquel, 11.

At one point, according to her request for the restraining order, Justice was overheard saying that if she didn’t let him in, “he would break every one of the f—— windows … and break the door down.” Berry was granted a temporary restraining order. Justice knows people will wonder why he didn’t speak up sooner, and that some will think he’s bringing this up in the midst of Berry’s divorce from Olivier Martinez in an attempt to see his name back in the headlines.
