Just a few months ago, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry appeared the perfect couple. With thriving careers, deeply in love and with a daughter, Nahla, the couple looked solid. But then they decided to take some time away from each other, which is never a good sign. It was downhill from there – now the former couple are fighting over custody of their daughter.
It all kicked off when Aubry hired lawyers in California and Canada to contest custody of two year old Nahla. Halle yesterday countered the move with a public statement that she has serious concerns for Nahla’s welfare in her father’s care. She vowed to do all she could to protect her daughter, which is why she is fighting for sole custody.
No details were released about why Gabriel Aubry may be an unfit father but it seems a very sad situation where two parents can’t come together at least for the benefit of their child. Those close to the 35 year old model, Aubry, say Berry (44) is using the child as ‘bait’ after being angered that he began dating known reality TV star, Kim Kardashian. Berry is, friends say, forcing him to choose between seeing Kim and seeing his child.
Oh Halle! Is Kim Kardashian unfit to be around children or is this just bitter sour grapes at Gabriel moving on? Either way, it’s a shame that a child is being manipulated, the couple having had no formal custody and access arrangements in place when they split.
