In the wake of her recent split from her third husband, Halle Berry is receiving some harsh criticism from none other than her famous exes. 

Berry and Olivier Martinez called it quits last week after two years of marriage. The couple are said to be ending their relationship on good terms, People reports, and have nothing but "love and respect for one another."

Upon hearing the news, Berry's first husband, David Justice, took to Twitter to slam the actress for vilifying her exes. His tweets have since been deleted, but according to the Us Weekly, the former MLB player wrote the following: 

 

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 also tweeted about the claims that Berry was referring to him when she said a former boyfriend struck her so hard on the side of the head that she suffered hearing loss. He didn't name names, but did say that another "famous" former boyfriend was the one responsible. 

It just makes me mad to still see the same lie being perpetuated about the source of her abuse being me.Never happened!#formerboyfriend

There are a couple of tweets that still remain on Justice's page, including one in which he stated that he never hit Berry during their relationship. 

Justice got some support from Berry's second husband, Eric Benét, who she divorced in 2005. He tweeted:

Neither Berry or her publicist have provided a statement about the accusations, but TMZ is reporting that the actress is upset about the situation.

A source close to the star told the celebrity news site that Berry never claimed Justice hit her, people just assumed she was talking about him when she discussed the incident back in the '90s. She's never identified the individual, though it has been reported that Wesley Snipes may have been the man in question. 

Justice has since spoken out about his tweets in an attempt to clarify his words. 

"I had to say something after reading about Halle's recent marriage," he told the Daily Mail, adding, "So many years ago, I didn't say anything about the accusations that I abused her, but now I have three children, ages, 15, 13 and 11, two boys and one girl, and they can read this stuff and they have friends who will read it as well so I had to finally come out and say once and for all I never hit Halle Berry."

Justice also explained that while it's true Berry never accused him of hitting her, "she never said I didn't either, which was disappointing." 

He added that he does not want be the face of all Berry's exes, and said that he would not go on TV to talk about his comments. 

"I just wanted to make sure my wife, my children and the rest of my family, friends and fans know the truth," he said. 

The Huffington Post has reached out to Berry's rep, but our request for comment was not answered at the time of publication.
