HALLE BERRY HAS NO CONTACT WITH THE BLACK SIDE OF HER FAMILY
Halle Berry’s problems with men started early, when she recalls her father as a violent alcoholic who beat her mother. Jerome Berry left the family in Cleveland when Halle was four. Halle had half siblings from her father’s previous marriage, but eventually lost touch with them and Jerome’s other relatives. Halle refused to visit her father, a hospital porter, when he lay dying from Parkinson’s disease a few years ago. Now her half sister Renee Berry says that Halle has been totally estranged from the black side of her family for YEARS, in spite of their attempts to contact her. Odd, for a woman who considers herself and her baby black.
