Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez are in the midst of some messy divorce proceedings, but it sounds like that isn't stopping the actress from having plenty of fun. It is rumored Halle Berry is dating rapper Chris Webby--a man 22 years her junior.

“Halle’s having a lot of fun with Chris,” a source tells OK! magazine. “She has a weakness for bad boys who are a little rough around the edges. He brings out her youthful side.”
HipHopWired.com reached out to both Halle Berry and Chris Webby for confirmation or comment, but neither has replied.
It was at the end of October that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez announced they were ending their marriage after just two years.
“It is with a heavy heart that we have come to [this] decision,” they said in a joint statement. “We move forward with love and respect for one another.”
Martinez was Halle Berry's third husband and second baby daddy, and based on the aggressive divorce lawyers she hired in the past, it was immediately expected that very little "love and respect" would exist in the divorce proceedings.
People have long wondered what it is about Halle Berry that causes her relationships to become so volatile.
Shortly after the divorce announcement, a friend of Berry's spoke with the New York Post.
“She has always looked for ‘alpha males,’ but after this divorce, she’s going to need a long period of self-reflection before she hooks up with anyone else,” the friend said.

Is Chris Webby an alpha male? If the rumor of Halle Berry dating him is true, where will this relationship wind up?
Of course it could be just a rebound fling. Halle Berry is a cougar now. She is likely wanting to see what a younger man has to offer.
