When it was announced back in September that 51-year-old Halle Berry was hooking up with 35-year-old British music producer Alex da Kid, I predicted that it would end like 99.999999% of Halle’s relationships: in a blaze of messy drama. InTouch Weekly says that Halle and Mr. da Kid are no more, and I was wrong – it only ended barely dramatically.
According to a source, Halle broke it off with Alex while they were on vacation in Bora Bora late last month. The source says Halle realized halfway through their trip that it wasn’t working between them, so she broke up with him and left. But what went wrong? The source says Halle came to the conclusion that Alex was too young for her.
“Halle decided he was too young and his communication skills were terrible. She said she needs someone who can think for themselves and is mature, smart and all-around adventurous. The last thing Halle needs is to be in a long-term relationship with a man who doesn’t express himself well.”
Okay, but he at least expressed himself better than Halle’s last two partners, right?
To be fair to Alex, he’s 35. Halle is 51. She probably felt like she was communicating with a different species. And to break up with him mid-vacation tells me their conversations were really getting on her nerves. My guess she realized it was officially over after he referred to the island they were on as “B-squared” or the first time he asked “Gilligan’s what-now?”
