Michael Jackson’s pal details moment star was ‘turned down by Halle Berry for a date’

Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds, 62, who produced many of Michael Jackson’s hit songs, has claimed the late singer wanted to go on a date with Halle Berry, 53. During an Instagram Live for his musical battle with fellow producer Teddy Riley, Babyface recalled how the King Of Pop once asked him to set him up with the actress.

The singer-songwriter said: “Speaking of MJ, it reminds me of a story—true story, fun fact.

“One time, Michael called me, Michael said, ‘Babyface, do you know who Halle Berry is? Do you know Halle Berry?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I know Halle Berry’.”

The star continued: “’Could you do me a favour? I want you to call her because I want to take her out on a date’.”

“I said, ‘What?’ and he said, ‘Call her, I want to take her out on a date’.”

Babyface explained he reached out to Halle’s agent, but his approach didn’t prove to be successful as the Hollywood star turned down Michael’s offer.

He divulged: “I can’t tell you exactly what Halle said, but I imagine it probably would have been something like this…”

Babyface then played a clip from Halle’s 1992 film Boomerang. 

“You know, what do you know about love?” her character asks in the movie. 

“What do you possibly think you know about love?”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Halle for comment.

Halle has been married three times in the past but is currently believed to be single. 

She first tied the knot with David Justice from 1993 to 1997 and then married Eric Benét in 2001.

Michael’s daughter Paris Jackson previously opened up about losing her dad in a candid interview with Rolling Stone in 2017.

She told the publication: “They always say, ‘Time heals.’

“But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it. I live life with the mentality of ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.’ 

“So going forward, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it.”

She added that Michael often visits her in her dreams: “I feel him with me all the time.”
