Halle Berry won’t ever be playing “The Good Wife” — because she turns into a monster after saying “I do,” sources have told The National ENQUIRER.
The 49-year-old beauty — who in 2001 became the first African-American to win a Best Actress Oscar, for her role in “Monster’s Ball” — has wed three times and set up house with a live-in baby daddy.
But she’s made life a living hell for each one of her men!
“Halle has a pattern,” a source claimed to The ENQUIRER. “What starts out as fairy-tale love ends with the guy terrified of her rages and outbursts.”
An insider added, “There’s a side to Halle the public doesn’t see. But her husbands and lovers certainly do!”
The former Bond girl’s first marriage, to pro baseball player David Justice, blew up in 1996 after just three years.
“I always felt I was walking on eggshells with her. Everything I did was wrong,” David later said.
Halle claimed the split left her so devastated that she attempted suicide. “I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me,” she said. “To end my life would be an incredibly selfish thing to do.”
She bounced back to marry singer Eric Benét in January 2001, but in October 2003, she announced they’d split.
In an interview with The ENQUIRER, Eric’s former girlfriend Julia Riley claimed he was terrified of Halle.
“Eric said Halle was very moody and selfish — and always wanted him to cater to her,” Julia said. “He said she started out sweet and sexy, but it wasn’t long before she was moody and cold — and sex became infrequent.”
Friends of Halle say she split from Eric due to his constant cheating.
“Halle has stood by Eric through all his infidelities and obviously worked very hard to make the marriage work. She finally decided to draw the line and call for a separation,” a friend claimed at the time of the couple’s split.
“Halle is one of the nicest people in Hollywood,” said a friend. “She is sweet and approachable. Halle is warm and caring, and is the opposite of a controlling an jealous prima donna. While Hollywood may have plenty of controlling divas, Halle is not one of them.”
The “X-Men” star’s live-in romance with model Gabriel Aubry, father to her daughter Nahla, 7, led to a custody battle after they split in 2010.
Gabriel “refused to let her walk all over him, and it made things worse,” said a source.
Halle then hooked up with French actor Olivier Martinez, 49, while they filmed the thriller “Dark Tide” in 2010.
On Thanksgiving in 2012, rivals Gabriel and Olivier came to blows when Gabriel dropped off Nahla at Halle’s Hollywood Hills home.
Halle and Olivier married in July 2013.
They have a 2-year-old son, Maceo. Olivier allegedly shoved a worker at LAX with a child’s car seat in January.
Days after the employee filed a $5 million suit against the couple, Halle — worth a reported $70 million — and Olivier announced their divorce.
An insider added: “Olivier was damned no matter what. Like the rest of Halle’s men, he never stood a chance!”
