Shemar Moore: ‘Toni Braxton Was A Wild Ride’
Shemar Moore recently opened up about dating gorgeous actress Halle Berry & sexy singer Toni Braxton. The “Criminal Mind’ hottie who has always managed to keep his love life out of the tabloids, told BET:
[Toni Braxton] was my first Hollywood relationship. I was a baby, I did not know sh*t. I had just graduated from college, I had no money and I was on Young and the Restless. She called my agent when she was shooting a video in Miami, and it just went from there. I was like the little kid who found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. It was a wild ride with Toni. She would never sing for me, though. That always bothered me.”
He dishes on why Halle was a necessary experience:
She was the first woman to really knock my socks off. I fell hard for Halle. A lot of people now know we dated, but we had to keep it hush-hush at the time because she was fresh off her divorce from David Justice. I’m still grateful for that relationship. I was smitten not just because of who she was, but because we were so similar in so many ways. She was biracial, she was kind of going through the same things I was in Hollywood. Toni was a fun ride, but Halle was a necessary experience. It made me much stronger as a man, and knowing the caliber of woman I want in the future.
She hasn’t had the greatest luck with men since then. Any regrets there?
No, none at all. She’s a tough cookie. I’m glad she’s got a family now. If this love she’s got with this guy is real, then that’s what she needs.
