Plus, sources give Berry's side of the story on Justice's outburst

It seems Halle Berry's decision to divorce husband Olivier Martinez has struck a nerve with the actress' first husband, former MLB star David Justice, and he hasn't been shy about airing out his frustrations.


On Tuesday, Justice hopped on Twitter to discuss his failed marriage with the star and the rumors that surrounded their split. He held nothing back while addressing allegations of physical abuse and even name-checked Wesley Snipes in the process. Justice wrote:


"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. It was a former Hollywood boyfriend (WS) that she told me! #getyourfactsright When she first reported that she had been in abusive relationships she wouldn't name the 'famous' former boyfriend (WS).. It just makes me mad to still see the same lie being perpetuated about the source of her abuse being me. Never happened! #formerboyfriend She was mad at me leaving the relationship so she and her Hollywood Team just tried to destroy my character. It had to be be my fault, right? Yup..Me, Eric, Gabriel and Olivier were all her "Knight in Shining Armor", until it ends..Then we all become the worst guys in history. Only the guys in the relationship with Halle know the real deal..there will be another, of course. He'll be called "The Best" until it ends. 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. smh."


Justice's remarks were backed by Berry's second husband, singer Eric Benét, who tweeted out: "My man at @23davidjustice is tweeting some truth dis' mornin'!"


Sources close to Berry tell TMZ that the actress never said or even insinuated that Justice abused her. While she is said to be upset over Justice's tirade, she is adamant that he never hit her during their four-year marriage.


Justice has since deleted the tweets and replaced them with an explanation about his outburst. He wrote:


"I just want to thank Halle for finally squashing all the rumors in the past, that I physically abused her, causing the hearing loss. My intention was not to bash Halle, as I specifically said that Halle has NEVER verbally said it. I just wished that when the rumors were out She could've squashed them at the time. I have 3 kids and a wife for 15 years. It was important that my kids knew that their dad didn't do What has been so regularly reported over the years. Now that Halle has confirmed the truth, I will go back to my coaching and mentoring. The kids in my community, coaching baseball, football and basketball. Say what you want about me because I'm far from perfect, but don't say that I hit Halle. My mom didn't raise me that way. Now, I'll go back into my little small place on this earth and be quiet....Peace!"


This case of the ex is closed.
