Well, talk about putting your kids first! Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry were a hot and heavy item for the past several years, but since it has fizzled out and the two have been fighting over their daughter, baby Nahla. Things have taken a turn for the worse now that Halle is going to be filming a movie in South Africa for three months and wanted to take Nahla with her. Well, her ex isn’t having it! He doesn’t want to be away from his little girl for the whole summer, so the three of them are up and going to Africa--together! Say what? Read what the inside source reveals:
“It’s been pretty difficult for Gabriel to see Nahla the last few weeks. He’s really getting sick of it and it’s getting to the point where he is seriously considering his options regarding pursuing permanent custody. He refuses to give up rights to his daughter, he loves her more than anything and is determined to be a regular, full time fixture in her life. The latest issue is that Halle is due to move to South Africa during July, August and September to work on a movie and she wants to take Nahla with her full time. That would mean Gabriel not seeing his daughter for three whole months and there’s no way he’s going to allow that. Gabriel requested that he be allowed to keep Nahla with him in Los Angeles but Halle wouldn’t let that happen, so the two reached a total stalemate and it started getting nasty, with both of them looking into entering a legal battle. In the end they reached an agreement. Basically Halle is going to pay Gabriel to be a kind of full time nanny and to come to South Africa for the three months she’s there, and to be Nahla’s full-time caregiver.Halle has a huge house that’s being rented for her and she and Gabriel are going to try to live under the same roof and get along for the sake of Nahla. Heaven only knows how that’s going to work out, as they haven’t been on the best of terms lately, but they do both love their daughter so maybe they can make it work. Halle has got a contingency plan though. If it doesn’t work out with them both living in the same property, she has agreed to rent a house for Gabriel near where she will be staying, and then he gets to look after Nahla all day while she’s working, and return to his place at night. It’s certainly not a conventional solution, but who knows, maybe it will work for them. One thing is for certain though – this definitely is not any kind of attempt at reconciliation. It is definitely 100% over between these two, and if it wasn’t for the fact of sharing a child together they would quite happily never see each other again. As it is they are stuck with each other, and I guess all they can do is try to make things as harmonious as possible for the sake of Nahla – she is the number one priority for both of them – so maybe, for her sake, they can make it work.”
Yikes! This sounds like a Lifetime movie just waiting to happen! Who wants to place some bets? Give them two, three days MAX before they are at each other’s throats? My question is, why would Halle even bother bringing Nahla? It sounds like she is going to be working non-stop and wouldn’t it be easier just to have Gabriel and Nahla back in LA where they would both be more comfortable? I smell control freak!
Don’t get me wrong, I am sure Halle doesn’t want to be away from Nahla for three months, either, but that’s why you don’t take movie roles on the other side of the planet. Last time I checked, motherhood meant sacrifice. But, what the hell do I know? This is 2010, so anything goes! Should be interesting to see what transpires! Who knows, maybe being away with him will rekindle their romance and they will return as one-big-happy family! Hey, what can I say? I’m an eternal optimist!
