Oscar winning actress Halle Berry will no longer be making her debut on Broadway in September. According to reports, the actress has had to drop out of “The Mountaintop” play due to custody issues over her 3-year-old daughter, Nahla Aubry.
Producers of the play, which stars Samuel L. Jackson as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., have said that Berry will “not be appearing in the role due to child-custody issues.” But the show must go on.
In the play, Halle would have portrayed a maid at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis, where the King and his colleagues were preparing for a demonstration before King was shot on the balcony outside his room.
Halle is currently involved in a bitter custody battle with her ex-partner, French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, Nahla’s father.
