*Eric Benet’s camp is denying a New York Post Page Six item that claims the self-professed former sex addict was at Cheetah’s Gentleman’s Club in Times Square last week and gave lots of attention to a stripper who looked exactly like his ex-wife Halle Berry.

The dancer, “Jordan,” said that Benet initially said his name was “Edgar,” but soon after revealed his true identity: “I said, ‘You’re Halle Berry’s ex-husband,’ and he said, ‘Once upon a time,’ and smiled.”

A rep for the R&B singer dismissed the story, shouting, “This is cheap gossip! We’re not going to answer these questions.”

As previously reported, Benet announced his engagement to Prince’s ex-wife, Manuela Testolini, earlier this year.
