Halle Berry has hit back at critics who have questioned her personal relationships and parenting. And naturally, she was not happy.
Halle Berry Blasts Trolls On Instagram Over Questioning Her Personal Life
This all escalated when Halle posted, “Women don’t owe you s***” in response to remarks made about her love life and alimony that she continues to pay. Fans responded in droves. One fan wrote: “Halle Berry owes alimony to that cracker that called her the N-word though [in reference to her ex Gabriel Aubry].” Halle responded with: “And it takes great strength every day to pay it. And btw it’s wrong, and it’s extortion.”
This forced the actress to shut down any further comments. She released a lengthy statement to clarify any misunderstandings. She said: “I’m not going to speak on alimony as I have never asked for it, nor have I ever paid it. However, as for child support, I feel I can speak on it as I’ve been paying it for a decade now. I feel if a woman or a man is having to pay support that is way more than they reasonably need to help SUPPORT the child, I think that is wrong.
She then criticised parents who used their children as a means of making money. She added: “I understand some parents (man or woman) may need help, but I feel in these modern times both men and women have the responsibility to financially take care of their children and work hard and make every effort to do so.
“The way many laws are set up, people are allowed to USE children in order to be awarded money to live a lifestyle that not only did they not earn, but that is way above and beyond the child’s reasonable needs and that is ‘THE WRONG’ and where I see the abuse.
Halle signed off by saying: “The laws are outdated and no longer reflect the modern world. This is just my opinion; I clearly don’t own the truth. I can say I’m living it every day and I can tell you it’s hard. I do totally understand the feelings of those men who feel they are and have been taken advantage of by the system.”
