Eric Benet: Rumors brought him closer to daughter

438b69d5001810731f400cb8e1 Eric Benet, singer and ex-husband of actress Halle Berry, whom he cheated on and went to rehabilition for a sex addiction for, reveals that the struggle has brought he and daughter India much closer.

He says, "It’s very difficult…And it’s very difficult for her. It’s always like one of those things about when one of those bad things happen, there’s always a really good flipside to it. One of the really good flipsides to all of this stuff and all of this drama was that my relationship with my daughter was strengthened." Having to explain to his daughter, who turns 13 this Saturday, that "daddy is not a sex addict" and preparing her for all of the other rumors that were reported about his split from Berry, has fortified their bond. "It just strengthened the communication tie between she and I. I love my mom and dad, but I never had this kind of relationship [with them]."
