Don't get it twisted, Hova: Eric Benet responds to JAY-Z's unflattering shout-out in “Kill Jay Z”

Jarett FajardoIn case you’ve forgotten, Eric Benét was once married to Oscar-winner actress Halle Berry.  

They split up in 2005, due to marital problems.  

Now, Eric’s clapping back at JAY-Z for dropping his name and referencing his failed marriage in one of his new tracks, “Kill Jay Z.”

On the track, from Hova’s newly released album 4:44, Jay references his alleged infidelity to his wife Beyonce by rhyming, “You almost went Eric Benét/Let the baddest girl in the world get away/I don’t even know what else to say.” 

On Twitter, Eric responded to the lyrics, writing, “Hey yo #Jayz! Just so ya know, I got the baddest girl in the world as my wife…like right now!”  

Eric is currently married to Manuela Testolini, who was once married to the late Prince

JAY has yet to reply to Benét.
