Halle Berry and musician Van Hunt have parted ways after dating less than a year. The Oscar winner announced she is done with men.
The 54-year-old Leo shared a post from her blog, re•spin, featuring a photo of herself waring a cutout tee with the words "no more boyfriends" on the front.
The title of the post is "Spending Valentine's Day Solo." The subtitle reads: "We're never alone when we're connecting with ourselves."
Halle urged her readers to love themselves and avoid the pressure of being in a relationship on Valentine's Day.
As Michael Reid, also known as the poet JustMike, said, "You're single because you know your worth and won't take anything less than what you deserve."
Make Valentine's Day the day you put yourself and your needs first. Self-love is one of the most powerful tools we have. It isn’t just a simple state of mind when you’re feeling good, but rather a feeling of appreciation for yourself that grows over time. While self-care is one aspect of self-love, it also stems from living intentionally, protecting your energy, and setting boundaries, both in your platonic and romantic relationships.
Last week, Halle, who has been divorced three times, responded to Instagram users who insisted she can't keep a man.
When an Instagram user suggested she "had some trouble with men", she fired back: "Nope, they had trouble with me".

Halle Berry doesn't care what anyone thinks about her history of failed relationships with emotionally unavailable men.
The mom-of-two clapped back at internet trolls who insisted she relied on men to take care of her.
Halle, who has been divorced three times, responded to Instagram users who left negative comments on a recent meme she shared which said "women don't owe you sh*t".
After a follower replied that isn't "what most wives tell their husbands who pay for everything", Halle said: "Well i'm not one of them. no man has ever taken care of me... EVER!"
When another user suggested she "had some trouble with men", she fired back: "Nope, they had trouble with me".
The former X-Men star - who has previously been married to baseball player David Justice, musician Eric Benet and French actor Oliver Martinez - insisted she is focused on living her "best life" and learning from past mistakes.

Halle Berry has finally confirmed she is dating singer Van Hunt after posting a photo of herself wearing a T-shirt with the singer's logo on it on Instagram.
The 54-year-old Oscar winner has dropped hints about a new boyfriend for months, but she refused to name him - until now.
On Thursday she posted the photo and captioned it: "now ya know...", adding a black heart and brown foot emoji, seemingly referencing all the snaps she has shared of her and the mystery man's feet in bed.
Halle's new post comes two weeks after Van shared a selfie, in which the Monster's Ball star is kissing his cheek.
"kisses land softly," the 50-year-old singer captioned the shot.
One of Berry's mystery feet photos was posted on Instagram in July along with a red heart emoji.
It came weeks after the actress shared why she has been single for so long since her divorce from French actor Olivier Martinez during an Instagram Live chat with pal Lena Waithe.
"I've learned a lot being with my children," Berry said. "They are the best company for me right now, and when I divorced Maceo's dad I've been pretty alone by myself going on three years now. Decidedly so, for sure.
"I have decided to take time. I'm very much a relationship-oriented person; I always want to be with someone. But I decided, 'No I'm going to slow my roll, I'm going to take a minute and I'm going to spend time with me'. And it's been so great that I think I might stay like this!"
Halle Berry shared a message of self-love with her followers on Instagram.com. She shared a beautiful topless photo that shows the actress embracing herself. She captioned the image: "Self-love is never selfish."
The 54-year-old mom-of-two shared the artsy photo a day after it was reported that she plans to represent herself in her divorce from her third husband Olivier Martinez.
She filed for divorce in 2015 after two years of marriage. The couple share a 6-year-old son, Maceo.
Hollywood insiders whisper that Berry is representing herself because the case has dragged on for 5 years and she can no longer afford to pay a divorce lawyer.
According to BET, her former attorney, Marina Zakiyan Beck, withdrew from the case on July 30.
Martinez, 54, is being represented by celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser.
Berry has a 7-year-old daughter, Nahla Ariela, with former model Gabriel Aubry.

Halle Berry shared a rare peek into her personal life at home with her 2 children during the novel coronavirus outbreak in California.
The 53-year-old Oscar winner shared video footage of her son Maceo Martinez wearing a pair of her white high-heeled boots. In the video he is seen attempting to climb up the hardwood stairs while wearing his mother's boots.
Halle captioned the video: "#Quarantine Day 12."

The video raised eyebrows amid concerned social media users who are still trying to process the news that Dwyane Wade's son, Zaya Wade, thinks he's a girl.
Child advocates shamed Halle for allowing the boy to play on the stairs in her boots. They say navigating stairs in high heels is risky even for women who have mastered the art of walking in heels.
Halle shares Maceo with French actor Olivier Martinez. The couple divorced in 2015.
