*During his Verzuz battle with Teddy Riley on Monday night, Kenneth ‘Babyface’ Edmonds revealed Michael Jackson once asked the music producer to hook him up with Halle Berry.

Babyface shared the story after Riley played SWV’s hit record “Right Here,” which samples Jackson’s 1982 song “Human Nature.”

“Speaking of MJ, it reminds me of a story—true story, fun fact,” Babyface began, via Page Six. “One time, Michael called me, Michael said, ‘Babyface, do you know who Halle Berry is? Do you know Halle Berry?’ I said, ‘Yeah, I know Halle Berry.’ He said, ‘Could you do me a favor? I want you to call her because I want to take her out on a date.’ I said, ‘What?’ and he said, ‘Call her, I want to take her out on a date.'”

Edmonds continued, “So I reached out through the agent, ’cause I didn’t have Halle Berry’s number. So I called and get the message to her manager, and he said, ‘What?’ [I said,] ‘Yeah, he wants to take her out on a date.’ And then I was waiting to hear back from Halle, and I can’t tell you exactly what Halle said, but I imagine it probably would have been something like this …”

The Grammy winner then played a clip of Berry’s voice from the 1992 movie “Boomerang” where she says, “You know, what do you know about love? What do you possibly think you know about love?”

Fans of the superstars reacted in the comments section of the live stream, with one fan writing, “Today I found out dat MJ (Michael Jackson) tried to shoot his shot and take Halle Berry out on a date and I can’t get over it.”

Another fan commented, “Michael Jackson using Baby Face as the plug for Halle Berry is the ultimate flex!”
