Gabriel Aubry hit on a woman by following her into the ladies room: desperate or go-getter?

Gabriel Aubry
I don’t know what’s going on with Radar’s relationship with Gabriel Aubry. They used to get a lot of exclusives with his side of the story in his custody case with Halle Berry. I was hoping to hear something from Aubry after Halle’s people bragged to TMZ that she’d all but won their custody battle, along with the implicit permission of the judge to move to Paris with their four year-old daughter, Nahla. Instead, Radar ran this negative piece painting him as desperate. We’ve heard similar stories about Aubry in the past. Radar’s sister publication, The National Enquirer, ran a story in late March about Gabe’s lousy pickup game, including the gems that he told a woman she was “more beautiful than Kim Kardashian” (his ex) and that he introduced himself to a group of women by saying he didn’t intend to go home alone that night. The guy is a beautiful specimen, but I can see how most women would balk at that.

I just went Radar’s archives on Gabriel, and it might not be a coincidence that he seems to have stopped giving quotes to Radar right around the time The Enquirer ran that negative story on him. Radar has one story that he might have contributed to after that, but it’s hard to tell. So now they’re running another story that paints the guy as a loser, and it just seems out of character given how Gabe-friendly they’ve been in the past. Here’s their story:

Halle Berry’s ex Gabriel Aubry is so hot to trot that he followed a woman into the ladies room to hit on her has exclusively learned!

The 35-year-old handsome Canadian-born model was spending the afternoon on Tuesday at the swanky Beverly Hills Hotel pool when he was spotted checking out a gorgeous woman lounging in the sun.

“Gabriel had his eyes on her and when she got up to go to the bathroom he went in after her,” an eyewitness exclusively told

“He went into the bathroom and introduced himself to her and they chatted each other up and then exchanged numbers,” the shocked pool patron said.

“I thought I had accidentally walked into the men’s room when I first went in there and saw Gabriel inside!”

Gabe’s baby mama Halle has moved on following their split after five years of dating and is now engaged to Olivier Martinez, but Gabriel is clearly still on the prowl looking for his next love interest!

The eyewitness said they were flabbergasted when he pulled the move.

“I was shocked to see him be so aggressive that he went into the ladies room just to hit on a girl, there were so many pretty ones out by the pool.”

[From Radar]

That’s bizarre, isn’t it? It’s like they’re saying he has no game, but they’re not outright calling him desperate like they did in the Enquirer piece. I’ll repeat what I said in our earlier story about this: if it’s true, it’s lame. I get why women would be turned off by a guy, even as beautiful as this one, acting like a horny teenager.

More than that, this makes me wonder what’s going on with Radar and especially with Gabriel. I just hope it’s not true that Halle has their custody case all but tied up. He clearly adores his daughter and he’s been fighting hard for her. I want to hear that the case isn’t as cut and dried as Halle’s side is making it out to be. Maybe Aubry is just fed up with talking to the tabloids.

    It really doesn’t matter if Aubry is lame at picking up women. There is no reason that Halle should be allowed to move to another country with Nahla. It’s pretty devilish. Abusive crack- moms are given more rights than Gabriel (maybe the stress over this is turning him into a dillweed in the romance department ?)

  2. brin says:

    I don’t believe half the things Radar posts…maybe Halle finally got to them.

  3. Marjalane says:

    I’m guessing that it was suggested to him by his attornies that he and his friends stop talking to the tabs. And given how smarmy Halle Berry has been through all this, I tend to roll my eyes at articles like this- she’s not above buying quotes and planting stories.

    • Lucinda says:

      I’m wondering the same thing. I’ve thought all along the smartest thing for him to do would be to shut up. If he has, then I could see the tabs making up stuff or HB planting stuff. These stories are so junior high sounding. “He’s a lousy dad, he’s mean to people, oh and he’s a total loser who can’t get girls to like him.” Whatever.

    • MW says:

      I bet his attorneys have probably told him to just lie low right now, too. Maybe Radar printed this negative story to try to force him to call in and deny it, thinking ultimately maybe Radar could get him or his rep talking about the Court case. As far as “no game”? He managed to impress Halle Berry at one point, didn’t he? Radar is a rag. The readers even call them out regularly for overly-misleading headlines and non-stories. The only stories they seem to come up with are about the Real Housewives.

  4. Izzy says:

    I’d be scared that I was about to be assaulted. I don’t care how good-looking the guy is.

  5. Agnes says:

    i’d be creeped out if a guy followed me to the bathroom. that calls for pepper spray, not exchanging numbers.

  6. Kimlee says:

    This story has BS written all over it.

  7. Mrs Jones says:

    I remember reading years ago that it was Halle asking him for his number, calling and asking him out. Now, we read lame stories of his lame lines and lame pick-up tactics, like following a woman to the loo. Seriously? I don’t believe it in a slightest. This guy doesn’t need to do that, I’m sure he’s got enough ladies throwing themselves at him, so if he doesn’t want to go home alone, all hi needs to do is just sit in a bar and wait.
    I’m not saying he’s a perfect husband/father – I clearly don’t know it, though he seems to be a great dad, but def he’s a perfect specimen. Don’t make me believe he acts like a desperate geek to pick up a girl

  8. lena80 says:

    Umm, sorry but if a man followed me into a restroom I would not be flattered, I would be creeped the hell out. I don’t think this story is true at all. Gabe doesn’t look the type that has to beg for panties!

    Does anyone even know how the custody arrangement will be changed if Halle is granted permission to move? Did she file for sole custody or just permission to move? Also what is their current arrangement?

  9. Jenna says:

    Well that’s creepy. But it’s Radar, so I’m not jumping to believe it.

  10. OXA says:

    Do not believe a word of this excrement, too soon after Halle’s sneaked/fed report to Harvey that she is a better parent.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    I find this questionable. Mostly because it seems like he finally figured out that the slightest thing would be used against him in this whole mess and he should just lie low. The timing of this story seems awfully suspect. And partly because, really? This guy probably has an endless supply of women following him around just dying to give him the time of day, it seems unlikely that he would have to follow anyone into a bathroom. He could indeed be really bad at using lines on women, but I doubt he has to pursue any of them to try it out.

  12. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    In the first pic Gabriel looks a little like Ashton Kutcher – smile more dude!

  13. dorothy says:

    This story reeks of Halle involvement.

  14. the original bellaluna says:

    IF this story is true (which I doubt), maybe no woman wants to date him because of all of HB’s craziness.

    Not exactly the kind of thing a normal woman wants to welcome into her life. (Trust me, I know. Learned the hard way.)

  15. Passingby says:

    This has sexual addiction written all over it…
    Whether he truly is a sex addict or whether a conspiracy is being built against him because of the custody case remains to be seen.
    However, Eric Benet suffered from sexual addiction himself, and most psychologists will tell you that women will unknowingly be drawn again and again to men with the same addictions…
    This would also explain why Halle Berry started hating him all of a sudden, and why she does not want him to be keft alone with their daughter… SICK!

  16. Aubra says:

    BEYOND creepy! That’s the thing about initiating any kind of contact these days with guys, they don’t know their place! I don’t care how many females you’ve met/known/experienced that act in a way that make you think you can approach other women any kind of way, KNOW YOUR PLACE!

  17. Dap says:

    I think GA is simply reading celebitchy and following our advices: we were numerous here to write that the “he says (to radaronline)/ she says (to TMZ)” was immature and that for the sake of their little girl they should stop and he decided to just do that. So of course, now both sites are going to depict him as a terrible person.

  18. foozy says:

    oh come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he’s hardly desperate!!!! i wish he’d hit on me :)

  19. ria says:

    If this had come from another source I might think, hmmmm. But it’s from Radar. Not buying it. They should get a online razzie award. Refuse to even read their trash.

  20. Jaxx says:

    Seems to me if he followed someone into the showers it was to get a big of privacy for the encounter. Who wants to risk getting shot down in from of everyone around the pool.

    Again, this sounds like more smear tactics from Hellie.

    If she does manage to move to France I hope Gabe flies over every single weekend on her dime. First class.

  21. jferber says:

    I’d love to throw myself at Gabe, from New York! That man is so hot.

  22. telesma says:

    I guess he’s a go-getter, ‘cos apparently she actually gave him her number.

  23. TheOriginalKitten says:

    SO desperate (if it’s true). Not to sound like a jerk, but that’s the kind of game that ugly dudes run-go follow chicks, try to get digits etc etc. Plus I’m always suspicious of guys that scope chicks out at a pool and then decide they want to date them. I know it’s typical of some guys but it just seems so shallow. He has a little girl, shouldn’t he be looking for a quality woman instead of modelizing? You would think a guy that looks like Aubry would just let the girls come to him but maybe he just has no game. *shrugs*

  24. the original bellaluna says:

    I won’t even get into an elevator alone with a strange man. If a strange man followed me into the restroom, he’d get stun-gunned or bear-sprayed.

  25. Maguita says:

    People are not seeing the situation under the right light in their minds…

    Let me explain: You are at a pool in LA. In LA, beautiful people/models hang around popular upscale hotels TO BE PICKED-UP.

    It is the flirting ritual in Hollywood.

    You are hot, you hang where the hot people hang, hoping to get noticed by either another hot possible short-lived mate, or someone in the industry that could help your career. It is very superficial. They don’t follow the same “flirting” principles, and rituals, as the rest of American cities.

    Note the following:
    “I was shocked to see him be so aggressive that he went into the ladies room just to hit on a girl, there were so many pretty ones out by the pool.”

    There were so many pretty ones out by the pool… Do you understand now that he saw someone he really liked, no matter the “pretty ones out by the pool”, and had opted to get her number? And “following her into the ladies room” would be following her into the mixed communal showers. Because no way security at a Beverly Hills Hotel, where they hang around pools and Ladies rooms, would allow that.

    And just to reassure people talking of stalking and rape, THERE IS NO WAY, at a Beverly Hills Hotel no less, that anything can happen that BOTH PARTIES have not agreed upon. ESPECIALLY IN DAYLIGHT.

    I am not kidding you folks, it is the common Beverly Hills mating/pick-up ritual for the beautiful and career-hungry people in LA.

  26. corny says:

    it’s just another relationship in the toilet for him, how romantic

  27. TheOriginalKitten says:

    @ Bella-LOL! Right?…or at least a knee to the balls.

    @Corny-Maybe he went to the Gerard Butler School of Toilet-Sex?

  28. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I agree, Asli. Plus he’s relatively famous. Can’t celebs just have their *people* just pick any girl he wants and set up a date?

  29. Tiffany says:

    What you write is the truth!

    And does anyone get the feeling the story is supposedly from someone who wasn’t the actual person being hit on, but rather another woman that went into the restroom? That doesn’t sound very credible at all.

  30. Maguita says:

    ^You mean “one of the many pretty ones” Gabriel might not have been interested in? Or one that simply tried, but had not succeeded in catching his eye?
