And in an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online he explains why he felt compelled to speak up.
'I had to say something after reading about Halle's recent marriage,' he said.
'So many years ago, I didn't say anything about the accusations that I abused her, but now I have three children, ages, 15, 13 and 11, two boys and one girl, and they can read this stuff and they have friends who will read it as well so I had to finally come out and say once and for all I never hit Halle Berry.
'Back then it didn't matter, but it's different now,' he tells Daily Mail Online. 'Halle never said I hit her but she never said I didn't either, which was disappointing.
'Let me tell you something, I was raised by a single mother and I love and respect her dearly, I would never hit a woman. Never. So, now I have said all that I am going to say on the subject,
'I am not the face of Halle Berry's exes, I won't be going on TV to talk about this. I just wanted to make sure my wife, my children and the rest of my family, friends and fans know the truth.

Justice ended outburst saying:
'It just makes me mad to still see the same lie being perpetuated about the source of her abuse being me. Never happened!'
in 1996, Justice told People Magazine that the relationship wasn't what he bargained for saying, 'she wasn't the same person I was with before we got married.'
He went on to say his wife got mad when he watched ESPN and accused him of cheating whenever she saw a picture of him with a woman who might be standing next to him.
He added that Berry carried a lot of baggage from her previous relationships and always suspicious. 'I've never known a girl who could throw a tantrum like she does.'
Berry publicly admitted that she attempted suicide after her marriage to Justice fell a part.
Justice was one of many failed relationships for the 49-year-old A-list actress.
In the late 80s she dated Chicago dentist John Ronan but was sued by him in 1993 for $80,000 after he claimed he loaned her money to help launch her career.
Berry claimed it was a gift and it was dismissed in court.
In 1991 claims of abuse surfaced after Berry revealed she lost 80% of her hearing in her left ear following a beating from a former boyfriend while she was filming 'The Last Boy Scout'.

On January 1, 1993 - Berry married Justice. They divorced four years later.
He remarried in 2001 and shares two children with his wife Rebecca Villalobos.
In 2001 after a two-year courtship, Berry tied the knot with R&B singer Eric Benet but divorced four years later after a turbulent time with Benet cheating and entering a facility for sex addiction in 2002.
Four years later, she met and began dating French Canadian model, Gabriel Aubry.
Berry and Aubry have a child together but never married.
The couple has been involved in a high profile custody battle over their daughter, Nahla Ariela Aubry, 7, primarily because Berry wanted to move to France with her then current love Olivier Martinez, from Los Angeles to France.
Berry and Martinez married in France on July 13, 2013 and their son, Maceo Robert Martinez was born three months later, on October 5.
But their Hollywood romance came to a turbulent end.
Final message: Justice's last tweet is his last attempt to put all rumors to rest over who actually hit Halle and left her with 80% hearing loss in her left ear
The two announced last week they were divorcing after two years of marriage
In a joint statement, Halle and Martinez said: 'It is with a heavy heart that we have come to the decision to divorce.
'We move forward with love and respect for one another and the shared focus for what is best for our son.
'We wish each other nothing but happiness in life, and we hope that you respect our, and most importantly our children's privacy, as we go through this difficult period.'
The marriage had reportedly hit a breaking point - they had been fighting over Martinez's January incident at LAX, where he hit airport employee Ronaldo Owens with a car seat, pushing him to the ground.
Halle and their son were also there.
A $5 million lawsuit was filed mid-October against Halle and Olivier for the attack.
