In 2007, after two divorces, Berry told Instyle, “I will never, never get married again” following her divorces from David Justice in the 1990s and Eric Bennet in the early 2000’s.

The 49-year-old also has a seven-year-old daughter Nahla from her relationship with ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry. Following a bitter custody dispute in 2010, the parents have equal custody of their daughter.
