Earlier this week, LisaRaye came under fire after she suggested that Halle Berry’s failed relationships was partly due to her being bad in bed. She later clarified her statements and said she was simply revealing rumors that had circulated for a long time about Halle Berry.
LisaRaye added that she had no issue with the fellow actress and felt bad that her comments were taken as shade towards the Oscar winner. Despite her explanation, Halle Berry responded directly on Twitter by referencing her current relationship.
“Ms. @TheRealLRaye1, ask my man @vanhunt he’ll tell ya all y’all need ta know,” Berry wrote with a crying laughter emoji.
Halle Berry recently revealed that she’s been dating singer Van Hunt for a few months.

LisaRaye faced backlash after suggesting that Halle Berry was bad in bed. The actress responded to the criticism by stating that she didn’t have an issue with Halle and praised the Oscar winner for breaking down barriers for other Black actresses.
“They tore my a** up this week about talking about I said that her p**** is trash,” LisaRaye said. “And I was like, ‘Where did I say that at?’ You know what I mean? I don’t know that because I’m not gay nor am I bisexual. But, that disturbed me because Halle is beautiful. I don’t have a problem with Halle. I love Halle. Halle is breaking barriers for all of us, you know what I mean. So, that is absolutely a no-no.”
Nevertheless, LisaRaye added that she did hear rumors about Halle Berry’s sex life and referenced the actress’s sex scene in Monster’s Ball, as well as her previous relationship with Wesley Snipes.
“However, I absolutely heard that,” she continued. “I remember when Monster’s Ball—her love scene and they were trying to say that’s how she is in bed. And it’s like, ‘No, it was a movie guys.’ Then they came out with the whole Wesley Snipes thing. And who was that who hit her in the ear? She didn’t have good relationships. I was like, ‘Chile, we all done broke up with somebody that we ain’t with now. You got to go through a lot of folks to get to that one. So I just wanted to say that.”
Halle Berry has not responded to LisaRaye’s remarks.

During a recent episode of FOX Soul’s Cocktails With Queens, LisaRaye and cohosts Claudia Jordan, Vivica A. Fox, and Syleena Johnson discussed the difficulty some celebrity women have keeping their men.
While speaking on the topic, Toni Braxton was brought up which led Claudia to declare that the singer had “some fine men back in the day.” However, LisaRaye’s responded by bringing up Braxton’s breakups and suggesting that Braxton and Halle Berry share a similar issue.
“But she done lost some [men] too,” LisaRaye responded. “So we don’t know what she be doin’ in the bedroom. It could be like Halle Berry.”
The remark incited a reaction from the cohosts, leading Claudia to ask LisaRaye if she was saying Halle Berry wasn’t good in bed.
“That’s what they said,” LisaRaye answered. “That’s what I read. That’s what I’ve heard. That’s what they say.”
This isn’t the first time LisaRaye has commented on the sex lives of celebrities. During an episode in September, the actress spoke about celebrity men hiding their sexuality while discussing her previous relationship with a bisexual man.
