Halle Berry blasts Drake for using her photo without permission

Halle Berry didn’t hold back when discussing how she felt about Drake using her image without permission.

Announcing a new track this week, 36-year-old rapper Drake, posted a photo of Halle, 57, getting slimed at a previous Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards show, but clearly, the Canadian hitmaker didn’t ask Oscar-winner Halle about the move.

Halle shared an Instagram post that read: ‘Sometimes you have to be the bigger guy … even if you’re a woman!’

In the comment section below, one of her 8.5million followers queried: ‘What are your thoughts of Drake using that picture of you for his single?’

Doting mum Halle promptly replied: ‘Didn’t get my permission. That’s not cool I thought better of him!’

She added: ‘Hence my post today. When people you admire disappoint you, you have to be the bigger person and move on!’


It follows news that Halle is ‘relieved’ and ‘ready to move on’ after her divorce from ex-husband Olivier Martinez was finalised.

The former couple, both 57, reportedly settled their separation earlier this month after a bitter legal battle concerning custody of their son, Maceo.

They are thought to have officially resolved their dispute and will share joint legal and physical custody of the nine-year-old.

Following the reports, an insider has claimed that the Catwoman actress is ‘relieved’ that their court issues have finally come to an end – nearly eight years after they went their separate ways.

An insider told People Magazine that she is ‘so ready to move on’ after the battle, as it has been ‘way too drawn out’.

Speaking of the mom-of-two’s perspective on the settlement, they simply added: ‘She needed it all finalised’.

Halle met Olivier on the set of Dark Tide, in 2010, following her split from ex-partner Gabriel Aubry – who she shares daughter Nahla with.

They shared the news of their engagement in 2012, and tied the knot the following April, before welcoming Maceo a few months later.

It wasn’t to last and they announced their split in October, 2015, bringing their two-year marriage to an end.

‘It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce,’ they said in a joint statement at the time. ‘We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son.’
