The custody battle between Halle Berry and her ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey over their daughter Nahla just got even uglier.
In December, Gabriel filed a paternity petition to protect his fatherly rights and establish shared custody. And now, just a month later, US Weekly is reporting that Halle plans on taking HIM to court to fight for custody of Nahla! The 44-year-old Oscar winner has even pulled out of the upcoming “New Year’s Eve” movie, which begins filming in NYC this week, to clear her schedule so that all goes according to (her) plan.
“Halle Berry was forced to pull out of a film production in New York this week due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter,” her rep tells UsMagazine.com in a statement. “She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention.”
But why is she even going to court in the first place?
“Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her,” her rep adds. “Halle has always made the needs and safety of her daughter her first priority and, both while Halle and Gabriel were a couple and since their break-up, Halle has only acted in her daughter’s best interest.”
Apparently Halle Berry does NOT play when it comes to her little girl’s well-being. She might be a bit crazy, but it seems like she is (or wants to be) a damn good mother!
