Eric Benet Gears Up for Berry Dirty Fight

By Stephen M. Silverman, People
Eric Benet isn't going quietly into the night now that he and Halle Berry are divorcing.

In a June 1 Los Angeles Superior Court filing (a copy of which has been obtained by the Smoking Gun Web site) Benet asks that the court "determine the validity and/or enforceability of the parties' prenuptial agreement" and the subsequent amendments that they made to it.

On top of that, the papers state, Benet -- who split from the "Monster's Ball" Oscar winner last October (divorce papers were filed by Berry in April) -- is seeking spousal support as well as reimbursement of his legal bills.

There has been no comment from Berry's camp, but last week the actress made news by telling Oprah Winfrey that she will "never, never" marry again.



Upon announcing her separation last fall, Berry said in a statement: "Eric and I have had marital problems for some time now and have tried to work things out together.

"However, at this point, I feel we need time apart to reevaluate our union. We ask that you respect our privacy as we are going through this emotional time," she added.

Berry was previously married to pro ballplayer David Justice, but the relationship ended in 1996. The instability in her relationship with Benet has been well documented, and at one point her husband was reportedly treated for a sex addiction.

Benet also has a young daughter, India, from a previous relationship with a girlfriend who was killed in a car crash 15 months after the girl was born.

Berry and Benet, both 37, reportedly met in 1999 at a party to celebrate the premiere of Berry's HBO movie "Introducing Dorothy Dandridge." His debut album, "True to Myself," was released in 1996. His hits include "Spend My Life With You" and "Love Don't Love Me."

Yeah can you believe he has the audacity to do anything but slink away quietly? If nothing else but for his daughter. He's an idiot.

Did you see Halle on Oprah? That was sad...

All of them do it. There is nothing you can do. You pay them off and act nice and let them have partial custody of your twins, and they still go on the E Hollywood True Story and say terrible things.

Benet, a singer whom few have heard sing, requested that the court "determine the validity and/or enforceability of the parties' prenuptial agreement and subsequent amendments thereto." Here's hoping that Ms. Berry's prenup is bulletproof. (2 pages)

I read that Eric was moping around a long time after Halle left him. They said he gained alot of weight, and did not wan't to go out of the house. I guess now his sorrow is turning into anger. I have to admit that I'm suprised he has taken this road, but when I think about it more what shocked me was that he was a cheater. I use to think dude did some cool music, and he was always talking about how spiritual he was and everything. I guess we see what we want to see because I never thought in a million years that he would cheat on Halle. Maybe I'm just an optimist who never see's the worst in people, or maybe I was caught up in an image?

That's a tired ass ni99a to have the audacity to try to get spousal support after what he did..and on top of that Halle adopted his child from him. The only reason he after her money is because his sining career aint bout shit now days......he would spend all of that money on hookers rather than do somethin better for himself!....Man Eric is TIRED!

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

I just stumbled across this performance. I taped the Essence awards that year, and Eric was serenading Halle like she was his one and only. I thought it was a bit embarassing, and over the top however I thought he was genuine. Boy was I wrong about that one!!
