In our last article on Gabriel Aubry, we mentioned that an emergency hearing requested by Halle Berry for a “no contact” order between Aubry and their nearly four year-old daughter, Nahla, was denied. Aubry currently has supervised visits with Nahla, and it’s expected that those will continue for the time being. To recap: Aubry has been accused by a nanny of verbal abuse, of pushing her on two occasions, once with Nahla in her arms, and of grabbing Nahla from her. A bid by the nanny to get a restraining order against Aubry was also denied. (Radar has the PDF of the ruling denying the restraining order, and the boxes are checked for “does not show reasonable proof,” “fails to show that he or she will suffer great or irreparable harm,” and “fails to show threat of future harm.” It’s written below that in long hand that the petition is “Insufficient and speculative. If there are concerns they should be resolved in family court.”)
Aubry is currently being investigated for misdemeanor battery and child endangerment in conjunction with an altercation with the nanny on January 18. As part of that investigation, child and family services has interviewed both Berry and Aubry separately, as is reportedly standard in cases like this. Radar has the details of the interview with Aubry, and after getting the semi-official excuse from Aubry camp’s that “the nanny tripped” and wasn’t pushed, they’re also getting his very deep thoughts on having to speak to authorities. Poor pretty Gabe feels like “he is living in a police state.”
The Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services has formally interviewed Halle Berry’s baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, in connection with allegations that he pushed a nanny while she was holding the former couple’s three year old daughter, Nahla, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Aubry’s interview with social workers was thorough and exhaustive. “These are very serious allegations and Gabriel was obviously very nervous,” a source close to Aubrey tells RadarOnline.com. “Gabriel feels that he is living in a police state as far as his time with his daughter is concerned.
“He is a doting and loving father and extremely attentive to Nahla. His daughter wasn’t present when the interview took place. The investigation will remain open at this point, but it’s not uncommon at all for officials to keep an investigation open out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of the child.”
As many of you mentioned in our last story, saying that a person “tripped” or fell is a classic abuser tactic. I’m not saying that Gabe is a nasty monster, or even that all these allegations ring true to me, but he’s not helping his case at all by leaking these ridiculous explanations and defensive quotes to the tabloids. It really does seem that he’s a devoted dad and that he loves Nahla, but if he has anger management issues he needs to have supervised visitation. It’s still hard to know which side to believe given Halle’s obvious tactics in the past to both smear Gabriel and to make sure she pushes him out of their daughter’s life. The truth is probably somewhere in between.
