HALLE Berry has revealed she’s related to former US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

The actress, 46, revealed her surprising genealogical connection in a recent video interview with Extra‘s Jerry Penaoli.

“You wanna know who I’m related to?” Berry said. “Sarah Palin! In some twisted way…somebody sent me this information that she was my distant [relative].”

Recent reports claimed Berry is struggling to deal with the nasty custody battle over her 4-year-old daughter Nahla. The bitter court case, in which Halle is trying to get permission to move to France with Nahla, comes on the heels of two terrifying stalker threats, pushing the academy award winner to the edge.

“Halle is paranoid and her nerves are as frayed as I’ve ever seen them,” revealed a pal. “She fears every camera flash that goes off in her face and sincerely believes she or her daughter is going to come to serious harm if the two remain in Los Angeles. Friends are worried she’s going  to fall off the edge. These horrible events are scary enough for Halle, but now that she is a mom, she feels both she and Nahla are targets. That’s why if a judge blocks the move to France, we all fear the worst. It could send her spiraling further downward. If she can’t find some peace, Halle is in danger of an emotional  collapse.”          – SS
