Halle Berry, ever the optimist, checks out schools in Paris for Nahla


The last we heard about Halle Berry’s custody battle, her ex Gabriel Aubry was triumphant in court and maintained custody of their daughter. A temporary order requiring supervised visits for Aubry was lifted, after Halle’s earlier attempts to request a move to Paris were denied. (After which Halle fired her lawyer and replaced him with one that was both pushier and easier to influence.) Reports claim that the judge has stated that “absolutely no ruling [on Halle's request to relocate to Paris] will be made for at least 6-9 months, and that will be after the psychologists, Nahla’s court appointed lawyer and the custody evaluator submit their reports.” Despite repeated setbacks in her court battle to strip her ex of visitation rights and/or move out of the country, Halle hasn’t given up hope. She was photographed in Paris yesterday with her fiance, Oliver Martinez, visiting a school, presumably for Nahla. She knew there were paparazzi around her. Multiple agencies have these photos. She did this on purpose as a message to Gabriel. Here’s more, from TMZ, which has had so many stories from Halle’s camp that you can assume she called them up and told them what to run:

Halle Berry is banking on her custody judge giving her the green light to move to Paris with 4-year-old Nahla — because we got pics of her checking out preschools in Paris.

TMZ broke the story … Halle wants to move to France with her fiance Olivier Martinez and Nahla to escape the paparazzi that dogs her in the states. She also feels unsafe in the U.S. because of ongoing stalker issues and fears for Nahla’s safety.

Baby daddy Gabriel Aubry is fighting the move, claiming it’s bad for Nahla to sever meaningful contact with him.

The judge has yet to rule on the move.

[From TMZ]

TMZ “forgot” to add that the judge’s ruling may not happen until 2013, although Halle is probably counting on it by the time school starts this fall. I just hope that the judge in this custody case is clued in to some of these stories that are in the press. Halle is pushing this so hard that it’s going to snap back at her. She better be careful or that tell all that Gabriel keeps threatening just might happen.

Here’s Halle in Paris without her foot cast yesterday. She lost it just in time to ride on Oliver’s motorcycle, since she was sporting it in these other paparazzi photos taken in LA on 3-14. Photo credit: WENN.com and FameFlynet

    So her foot is allergic to the US, is that it?

  2. Maguita says:

    CB, I am so glad you are posting about this. When I saw it yesterday… I wanted to catch a plane, take a cab, get out, smack that bitch, get back in the cab, catch a plane back home, and sit home all Stewie-like talking to my dog about the idiocy of some irresponsible tw-ts.

    Wow, thanks, got that off my chest!

  3. brin says:

    Hope she gets the rude awakening that she’s asking for.

  4. dorothy says:

    I’ll be so glad when the judge shuts her plans down to take her daughter to Paris.
    She’s a selfish, irrational person who has no idea how to parent. And, given her track record will not be with boyfriend for any significant amount of time. Of course it will be his fault.

    • Loulou says:

      I was thinking that. It’s Olivier that she’s going to lose. No self-respecting Frenchman plays the guignol for the paparazzi. He must be so embarassed, he’d wished he stayed with Kylie. Two losers those two.

      • ZooBug says:

        I hope you’re right, though he doesn’t look embarrassed to me. Just in a vagina controlled trance. I hope the spell will be broken soon. If it weren’t for him this whole move to France wouldn’t be happening.

  5. kay says:

    “Halle wants to move to France with her fiance Olivier Martinez and Nahla to escape the paparazzi that dogs her in the states. ”

    yet here she is being pictured in France.

    • ZooBug says:

      And actually smiling at the paps! I saw lots of pictures all over the web. She’s totally disproving the safety from the paps issue with this trip. They even photographed Olivier from an upper story window. It might be his flat. Now they’ll have paps camping out right outside his door day and night. Wake up Olivier!!! He never had this kind of harassment on his own in Paris. Halle’s pretty much ruining any chance of peace he’ll ever have in his home town.

  6. Jezi says:

    She just lives in her little land of delusion. Sad that Olivier is along for this ride. I was so happy when I read that Gabriel’s supervised visitations were lifted. It was like a small victory. I hope he wins the war.

  7. nullnull says:

    I hope like hell that Halle is denied by the judge. Taking this 4 year old kid away from her dad and punting her into a whole knew life in France… FRANCE. People never cease to amazing me with their selfishness.

  8. Jayna says:

    Offer to move him over there and buy him a house or something. He doesn’t seem to work, or at the most very little, and maybe would be amenable to moving. If not, you’re out of luck without him agreeing. He has half custody and loves his child.

    When Madonna moved to England, I’m sure she had a come to Jesus meeting with Carlos, father of Lola, and I’m sure he wasn’t happy. Though, they are friendly, so different situation. And I’m sure with her money she provided transportation and such for him to fly back and forth for Lola and her father to stay close and she also lived in America part of the time, not England 12 months a year.

    Show him respect as the father and try to work it out. Novel idea.

    • strawberrycake says:

      He does work, but he doesn’t make as much as Halle does. Then again, he’s never gone after her money. He’s a very highly successful model. Not out of work. And why should he be expected to uproot his life and move to another country. He’s already living in a foreign country, as he’s Canadian.

    • ol cranky says:

      Aubry agreeing to move over there (even if she pays for it) and/or allowing Nahla to leave the country with her mother would be a mistake. Some other countries will not honor a US custody agreement and I think Berry would love to get her daughter out of the US to take advantage and manipulate another country’s system.

  9. TXCinderella says:

    What a sack of crap, trying to keep her child’s father from seeing her. Olivier better run while he still can.

  10. Hautie says:

    You got to give Oliver credit, he has been putting up with her crazy all this time.

    So there must be some hell of a cash payout coming to him for it.

    I wonder how much of her cash has found its way to that new venture of his in Florida.

    I find it hard to believe that Halle’s BFF.. Oprah… is backing all this crazy behavior.

    • mazzy says:

      Ah yes, Olivier’s restaurant! I’m in the area & would go eat there but I don’t want to give a penny of my money to that psycho b*tch. I’m sure she’s bankrolling the whole thing.

    • Maguita says:

      Just to be fair though, Halle did also back Gabriel when he opened his bistro in Montreal. Maybe it is the kind of business she encourages her boyfriends to go into… Whatever. Bitch is crazy. There is no turning back from this statement.

    • wanda says:

      SO Halle’s bankrolling Olivier’s Bistro. He has’nt DONE much since “Unfaithful”(unfaithful,meet unstable)so I guess he’s GETTING while the GETTING’S GOOD!!! If Gabriel ONLY has enough money to buy Nahla,food,clothes,and an occasional ice cream cone,that would get a THUMB’S UP!!!! Nahla SEEMS so happy ,when she’s with her father.

  11. Trollontheloose says:

    So for an entire year (almost from the beginning of her relationship with Martinez) she was stucked in a boot and just like that it’s off while in Paris.

    • Maguita says:

      Must be the French air, it makes her more tolerant of the paparazzi’s respectful cameras in her face, and how respectfully they follow her around as well.

      I think she is simply pulling on Gabriel’s tail. Just to rile him up. However, if the judge on her case is paying notice, this might blow up in her face. Here’s hoping the judge is not on par with Charlie Sheen pardon and acceptance of misbehavior.

    • MW says:

      I badly broke my ankle years ago. Right after the cast and brace came off, I could not have stuck my foot in a leather boot if my life depended on it! It was stiff, I was scared to put weight on it, and my foot only moved up and down about in inch, not side to side! Even the canvas shoe thing they wanted me to wear made the whole thing immediately swell back up. I think I just wore flip flops, walked carefully for days till the muscles toned back up and range of motion came back. Really odd.

  12. BK says:

    If she gets to take her daughter when she moves to Paris then I honestly think that would be a grave injustice.

    Her ex has gotten glowing reviews from the department of children and family services, most if not all of her negative allegations against him have been proven to be false.

    If the judge can’t see what kind of woman she really is and reward her ex for being a good father who has tried to keep his daughters interests at the fore, then that is just a travesty.

  13. Jackie says:

    she has some real mental health issues. this poor kid.

  14. SRT says:

    she is horrid

  15. SRT says:

    Martinez is a serial philanderer – my opinion would be he is not good parent material

  16. Alex says:

    If I wasn’t Team Gabriel before, I am now.

  17. Alexis says:

    I can’t deal with how similarly they dress, accessorize, and wear their hair. They even make similar facial expressions. They’re one of the more dramatic cases of couples with the same style. I wonder who is copying who, or if they had the same style all along.

    She’s crazy, and I’m all for placing bets as to when (not if) they break up, but right now they always look like a couple in sync.

  18. TG says:

    Amazing the cast is off in France. It isn’t convenient for her to be injured in Paris, just wait until she lands at LAX it will be on that foot upon arrival if not the next day. What a piece of work. Someone mentioned that Halle and her mom made Eric Benet seek treatment for sex addiction? My theory about her mother is proven correct. Any celeb who can’t make a decision without their mom has big problems. (look at Katherine Heigel, Justin Timberlake, Kim Kartrashian, Lindsay Blohan, etc. they all have their mom’s controlling them) I think her mom is a narcissist just like Kris Khartrashian and it is all about her so for Halle it is all about her too. Why the heck would your mom be involved in your marriage issues? Just too weird for words. I have no respect for adults who can’t make decisions for themselves without running to mommy or daddy to fix the problem. That has always been my personal pet peeve about people. Oh and one more thing are there any photos of Nahla looking happy with Halle or Halle looking happy with Nahla?

  19. LL says:

    I wonder wonder why so many of the women here hate Halle so much? It must be because of the color of her skin, since none of you guys know these people.

    • Obvious says:

      That isn’t fair at all. In fact you seem to be accusing us of being racist.

      We don’t hate on Halle because of her skin color. That makes not one iota of difference. WE hate on her because after playing the injured party for so long we’re finally able to see how manipulative and horrid she truly seems to be. Yes, we know we are making assumptions based on pictures and stories without actually knowing her, but how is that any different form you assuming we hate her because of her skin color without knowing us.

    • fabgrrl says:

      Thanks, troLL.

      • LL says:

        That’s the vibe I’m getting from the comments.

      • Veruca says:

        Maybe that’s simply a vibe you’re looking for. Color has nothing to do with it around here.

        If you’re a crazy bitch, we call you on it. If that’s a problem for you, then leave.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Skin colour plays no role in this. It’s probably more along the lines of “we’ve had more than our lifetimes’ worth of men who would rather boff their secretaries (or whomever) than pay attention to and dote on their own flesh-and-blood children.” And never mind receiving child-support for them.

      So it kinda gets our goat when Halle’s got a man who obviously ADORES Nahla, and Halle wants to be a bitch about it just to get her way.

    • Dalstongirl says:

      You know what? I wonder if Halle would be getting so much heat on celebitchy and other sites if the baby daddy was not white. What if the baby daddy was black, would you all care so much? I have thought this for quite some time and wondered whether to post this or not. When she accused her other exs of being abusers and cheaters everybody believed her. Now she excuses a white dude of all kinds of bad she’s lair.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        I’m the mother of 2 mixed-ethnicity children, and it sucks just as hard to deal with custody and child support when you’re white.

        So NO, Halle’s not getting any additional heat from this site.

      • Kate #2 says:

        What Eddie Murphy did to Mel B was disgusting, too. “Nobody knows whose that baby is until it comes out and gets a DNA test…” what a piece of work. And Steve Bing behaved just as badly. Totally sodding disgraceful, in an internet age as well – where the kids will face schoolfriends with Google at their fingertips.

        People, men or women, who either abandon their kid or who try to steal their kid’s other parent are vile. I don’t care what colour or creed or sex anyone is. It’s a form of child abuse, what Berry is doing, and it stinks.

    • Ducky La Rue says:

      I think people hate Halle’s behaviour, and there’s certainly been enough evidence of that in play. However, if your first thought is that it “must be because of the color of her skin”, I think that says more about your perceptions than anyone else’s.

    • LAK says:

      Wow – we see a woman going all hell out to separate daughter from father, you see racism!!!

      Sorry to tell you this but YOU are the racist.

      The commentor who accused us of being dazzled by Aubry pretty has more credibility than you do.

      Edit: my comment is specifically addressed to LL but as Dalston girl has weighed in, I feel compelled to say that there are many non-white, multi cultural commentors and or commentors in mixed race relationships with children who have weighed in on here about Halle’s behaviour.

      Infact many have re-examined Halle’s previous comments regarding her previous relationships (all with black men)and found them wanting.when people can now have sympathy for David justice shows how far Halle has gone to alienate her fans/audience

    • The Original Mia says:

      Haha. That’s funny. Last I checked, I was black and Halle was still a selfish mother trying to separate her child from her loving and attentive dad.

    • Maguita says:

      Nah, because of her crazy bitch ways.

    • mln76 says:

      As a black woman I have to say grow the F-up. Maybe the problem you have with Gabriel is the color of his skin???

    • ol cranky says:

      I’ve guess you’ve seen every one of us in person and know not only that our skin color is different than Berry’s but that we judge a person based on skin color?

      Berry has made increasingly harsh and unsubstantiated accusations about her ex in a battle to limit his contact with THEIR child (not HER child, THEIR child). I think people have legitimate reasons to think she’s lying to gain full control over the child and that she appears to be doing so in order to damage her daughter’s relationship with her father. Most of us consider that a form of child abuse.

    • lileneboheme says:

      It’s because she’s a bad mother for putting her innocent little girl through this much drama as anyone with a modicum of intelligence can see.

  20. the original bellaluna says:

    I used to like her, but now I think she’s just an assh@le.

  21. Jane says:

    I think she is trying to play with GA’s head. She wants to push his buttons so he will do something that she can use to get Nahla away from him.

    Apart from this, I think it is strange that TMZ did not report that GA was cleared of the charges Halle threw at him. He doesn’t have to have supervised visitation anymore and threaten to sue Halle if she hauled him into court again without merit.

    TMZ is obviously pro Halle from the way they do post when they report on this, but not a peep from them when GA was cleared. I now look at TMZ as not being impartial when they report on stories. I wonder if it has a lot to do with whoever is posting the story, whether someone agrees with it or not, rather than just reporting what has happened.

    • Tazina says:

      TMZ has been in bed with Halle Berry from the beginning. I go to Radar Online to see what’s really going on. TMZ is far from being fair and impartial.

      • elle says:

        It’s funny they are so pro-Halle in their writings but when you listen to their daily show Harvey and the others aren’t pro her at all. There is some major disconnect going on.

        As for why TMZ didn’t report it, they don’t report positive news for him. He uses Radar Online and she uses TMZ. I guess the real truth is probably somewhere in the middle.

      • Maguita says:

        @elle, the same discrepancy happens with the Kim Krapashian stories. The site borderline glorifies her, when the staff on the show completely ridicule her.

        That is why i rather watch the show, Harvey lets the cat out of the bag… unintentionally.

  22. Tiffany27 says:

    I just can’t see a judge allowing one parent to move a child to another country. I don’t know the law, but I highly doubt this would happen. And I think Nahla’s parents need court appointed psychologists as well.

  23. Sapphire says:

    To escape the Paps? Really? Anyone remember Princess Diana?

  24. Newtsgal says:

    No disrespect to our friends across the pond but, Scary Berry thinks it would be safer for her and Nahla to live in Paris because of the paparazzi in the US……..hahahahaha!
    The paparazzi in Paris are like pitbulls….hello Princess Diana ring a bell for anyone.
    She is just a mean & nasty person and there is no doubt in my mind that her little girl will grow up to hate her.

  25. LL says:

    France has stricter paparazzi laws than the US. The ignorance here is astounding.

    • Relli says:

      oops I did not want to feed the troll.

    • MissM says:

      Clairement que vous n’avez jamais été à Paris. Peut-être de meilleurs choix que vous une autre place pour commenter, car ici nous sommes tous ignorants.

      • Veruca says:

        Tres bien!

      • Sapphire says:

        C’est vrai!

      • Maguita says:

        Bah, des imbéciles, y-en-a partout.

        Halle will be more hounded in Paris than in California because of her “nouveauté”. She’ll be a new toy everyone will be interested in, and following around closely. And no, Paris’ laws are not stricter than California’s. California is the state where stars live. And as such, laws are often adopted to their better convenience.

        Also, remember her stalkers? They are not allowed to get close to her in AMERICA. Not so in France. She will have to go through the process all over again of keeping them at bay.

        Poor idiote.

    • MissM says:

      since we are racsits and ignorants in your own word, maybe you should go elsewhere…

    • Wendi says:

      Their laws only forbid things being published in France without consent if I’m not mistaken. As you can see from these pix, it does nothing to stop pix being published elsewhere.

      And why is Martinez riding his motorcycle on the sidewalk?

      • ZooBug says:

        He’s driving on the sidewalk in hopes that when he drives down over the curb Halle will bounce off the back and he can leave her there in the street. :D

        I hope.

    • Kate #2 says:

      You’re confusing the law on media publication with the law on photography in a public place. They’re different things.

      You do remember how Princess Diana died? She had no respite from paparazzi in Paris, any more than she had in San Tropez. French law is such that they publish more cautiously, but the celebrity market is international.

    • Ravensdaughter says:

      Good observation, Kate-I too, was remembering Princess Diana’s violent death evading the paps in Paris. Are we really so ignorant after all?-the distinction between where the photos are taken v published is legitimate…the photographers still pocket the money.
      Oh-the sidewalk thing-they drive ‘cycles on the SIDEWALK all the time! It scared the crap out of me when I went there. I don’t know if it’s legal or not, but it’s done..
      Wacky Parisians!

      • Wendi says:

        The only time I’ve ever seen a motorcycle driving on the sidewalk in Paris was a bag snatcher.

  26. Michele says:

    The more I read about Halle, the more I dislike her. Seeking out Parisian schools before a court decision is arrogant and defiant. I truly hope the ruling ends up on Gabriel’s side. It’s so obvious her decision to move to France is out of spite and a deliberate attempt to hurt her ex. She’s a selfish woman only thinking of herself instead of the well being of her child.

    • ZooBug says:

      It may be part of her case to prove that Nahla will somehow be offered a better life in Paris. The court or her lawyer might have asked her to put a detailed plan together for Nahla’s life style. One of the schools they looked at is the school that Sofia Coppola’s child attends. There are only 40 students. It’s very exclusive.

      Excuse me, I have to go have some Ramen now and sweep out the fire place before my evil step sisters see that I’m on the computer.

  27. Relli says:

    Seriously her Padma need to have a meeting of the minds for “beautiful crazy delusional woman who have daddy issues and are trying to do the same thing to their daughters because thats what they think is normal.” I believe that support group meeting would be awesomely insane.

  28. DavidBowie says:

    They both look sickly. It’s weird.

  29. Jaxx says:

    I truly do not understand Halle’s selfishness. She has to know from her own experience how important a father is to a girl. She seems to think she can just insert this new guy in Gabriel’s place and Nahla will be just fine with it. But that never works. NO ONE can replace Gabriel. If she separates them Nahla will feel forever abandoned by her own father and nothing will ever heal that hurt.

    What mother in her right mind would inflict that harm on her own child? I’ve lost all respect for Halle and will never support her career again. I guess she doesn’t care about her career any more than her daughter or is she just as delusional about losing fans?

  30. lisa says:

    Women do this all the time. It has nothing to do with race or money. It is about her wanting this man to be the father of her child. She wants erase Gabe away and build this new life with Oliver.

    Men do it too. They may leave their wives and find another woman with children and will play family and forget about the children they had in the old life.

    this is not Hollywood. It is everyday in the world. Halle and the other players in this craziness are just more famous.

    She has made a lot of changes. She wants to move to his homeland and now she has gone back on the I won’t marry again. All this because of Oliver. She wants this man and will do whatever to keep him. Even giving him another man’s child.

    I wonder how this is going to play out when they start to promote their movie. What questions will be asked and answered

    • LL says:

      Maybe she just fell in love. There is nothing wrong with her wanting to remarry. People just want to hate on Halle. None of you guys know all the facts of the case.

      • lisa says:

        I never said there was anything wrong with her wanting to get married again. And yes I believe she did fall in love with Olivier. Which is why she has done a turn around. And IMO because of her age and the fact that he does not have children she wants him to be the father of this child. And that is not hating. Like I said because women outside of Halle do it all the time. I don’t hate her. I don’t know her. And Hate is an emotion I save for someone that has done something to me or to my loved one. My post was not hating on her, just stating my opinion.. just as you did

      • Wendi says:

        Falling in love and wanting to remarry does not give her the right to cut Aubry out of his daughter’s life, especially as he is such a present Dad. Once you have a child, it should stop being “all about you” and start being about what is best for the little one too.

      • Kate #2 says:

        Her new relationship has nothing to do with her trying to deprive her daughter of a father. I find it shocking that any mother would deliberately follow a course of action which is guaranteed to profoundly damage her child. That’s child abuse, plain and simple.

        I hope Berry and Aubry fall in love with new people, and those relationships thrive and are happy, but neither one should try to interfere with their child’s right to the other. That simple.

        Not sure why you find that statement so controversial.

      • ZooBug says:

        Lisa, Wendy and Kate, you dears are all so diplomatic. That’s super.

        But I’ll admit freely that I hate Halle. She’s an evil, selfish, manipulative succubus who is playing the wounded bird, the race card, oh dear I’m being chased by a stalker bullpug and brainwashing Olivier into believing that Nahla must be saved from Gabriel who called me the N-word! How can I go on? Woah is poor rich me, not getting my way at the snap of my fingers!

        She’s not afraid of the paps or any stalker! It’s an excuse. The woman goes all over the place with out security AND wears flip flops. You know what you’re thinking on the days when you wear flip flops? You’re thinking you’re not going to be in a life or death chase scene. Recognize!

        She will use up and destroy any man she comes in contact with and poor Olivier is next.

    • Lee says:

      Be very careful when you say women do this all the time, while men leave their children behind. PAS knows no gender. Men too can work very hard to alienate their children from their mothers. I know. I lived it for 11 crazy years. Watching Halle do this is like reliving everything I went through with my crazy ex. And I mean everything. And it didn’t matter what the psychologists’ reports said, and it didn’t matter what the judges and their court orders said – the harassment didn’t end. Narcissistic people come in both genders, and do NOT care if they hurt their children. At all. It’s all for the win. And if one judge or lawyer doesn’t go along, well, there’s always another one who might. Bloody exhausting. I feel for Gabriel and Nahla.

  31. Maritza says:

    I’m surprised these two are still together.

    • skuddles says:

      I’m beginning to wonder if these two are a real couple, or if Berry isn’t just using him to nab Nahla away from the US and Aubry? And Martinez would, of course, be using her in return. She has scads of money, he just opened a restaurant in the US….and his association with her can only help his career, especially in the US. Surely Halle can’t be oblivious to all the cheating rumors of his past (and present if you put any stock into blinds) … I think this is a use-use scenario (with benefits) and that’s about it.

  32. the original bellaluna says:

    And can we just get it straight that it’s “Olivier” not “Oliver?”

  33. skuddles says:

    Is it optimism or just another ploy to shake up Aubry? And maybe to plant the seed a bit deeper in the public’s mind…. oh I’m moving to France alright, never mind that pesky ruling. I’m Halle Berry and I will ALWAYS get my way dammit!

    That aside, wow, does she have a serious case of the bitchface going on these days. Don’t think the CFS report is sitting too well… not at all.

  34. hopperlea says:

    I am sure in a few years Olivier will be on Halle’s bad side too. Berry will come forward about some horrid abuse she faced with Martinez and some other crazy shit. Nahla will live through a revolving door of all her crazy mother’s so-called abusive boyfriends. Hopefully that little girl won’t turn out like the f*cked up nutjob Berry is…fingers crossed.

  35. The Original Mia says:

    Oh, Halle, be more obvious.

    Even if she’s doing this to irk Gabriel, he’s got to be feeling pretty good. He probably has Nahla with him right now. There’s nothing negative against him in the report to support stripping him of his rights. All he has to do is keep on the straight and narrow & let the case come to its natural conclusion.

  36. Dap says:

    This is not going to end well. Does anybody else foresee a Britney Spears-like meltdown, with HB locked in her bathroom with little Nahla and refusing to turn her back to the cops?

    • skuddles says:

      I’ve considered that too Dap but I think Berry is much too cold and controlled to pull a Britney. Britney imploded and became pitifully self destructive at the peak of her crazy whereas I think Berry would rather die than allow anyone to see her weaken and lose control.

        Wow! That’s still scary…

      • ZooBug says:

        Oh really? You mean like when she went on Oprah and told the whole world that she almost committed suicide by asphyxiation while leaving the car running in her closed garage, taking her two dogs with her? She said she felt a tapping on her shoulder and took it as a sign that she should not do this. I say it was one of the dogs begging to live!

        Or maybe there’s the time when she did a hit and run and got out of it by playing an amnesiac. She’s an actress!!!

        She’s not afraid to look like the victim if it helps her get what she wants.

    sure… berry can take the child to france. on the condition that she pick up the tab for gabriel’s visits — including all his travel, hotel, and food. minimum 2 transcontinental flights per month in first class.

    :-)

      That’s still not the same as seeing your kid every week though, is it? And a lot of travelling for Aubry. I heard that the deal you suggest is exactly what Kate Winslet offered her ex when she moved to the States, and they made it work it seems, but I can’t see Berry putting in the co-operation required to make it feasible. It’s very much a compromise for a parent who lives long-distance, and the resident parent needs to work at keeping the lines of communication open. And LA is a loooong flight from Europe.

      • Wendi says:

        Not only that but once the child is a French resident, she and the custody arrangements would fall under French law, not American. And Gabriel would likely be at a severe disadvantage if that happened.

      • Dap says:

        @wendi: no that’s not true. If there is already a custody arrangement in place, this custody arrangement prevails against the French law. Which means by the way, that is HB chose to take Nahla in France against the American court will, HB could be arrested for kidnapping.

    I noticed the boot being off in the pictures taken in France too. She’s healed so much apparently it is healthy enough to ride a motorcycle! Really, riding a motorcycle with a jacked up leg. I think not. Hope the judge is noticing that fact as well.

    I would fight this to the bitter end – she is absolutely deplorable. She thinks people are dispensable…just ask her step-daughter…who she use to refer to as her daughter…and now never sees. I disliked her after and this just seals the deal.

  40. Sarah says:

    I just can’t get over the fact that Olivier still hasn’t changed those jeans of his yet. They both always look so unwashed these days.

  41. Ravensdaughter says:

    Nahla has her own advocate? A court appointed attorney or guardian– That is very, very good news!

  42. ZooBug says:

    Fancy!!! And all I got was a lousy t-shirt and this packet of peanuts.

    Seriously though, good for Nahla. Pray God she gets to stay with Gabriel.

  43. j Mark says:

    She has some real mental health issues. Remember when she ran over somebody in L.A and tried to leave the seen of the accident.

  44. Laura says:

    Uhhh if this was me I actually wouldn’t want my judge to read what’s in the media AT ALL. A judge should be fair and should apply the law, not be influenced by the media, and any judge worth his salt would stick to that. I would think that any judge would also be able to see straight away that she is, for want of a better term, bat shit crazy, famous or not. The rulings so far in Gabriel’s favour re the supervised visits seem to prove that.

    Halle Berry is way, way over-rated. I used to be a big fan of hers, but when I read about how her relatives in OH supported her when she was unknown,and helped her to reach stardom, and she doesn’t even deal with them now, I lost respect for her. I also lost respect for her when her father, on his death bed, requested her presence, and she refused to acknowledge him. That was cold. I don’t care what her father did to her mother (Halle says that her father never struck her), if it had not been for her father, there would be no Halle Berry. Sometimes, I wonder what role Halle’s mother plays in all of this. Is she encouraging her to be fair with Nahla’s daddy, or going along with what Halle is doing? Perhaps, her mother is very bitter, as Halle is. Perhaps her bitterness transcended into Halle’s soul. Again, I say that Halle is way over-rated, and I lost respect for her when she played in Monster’s ball, and had sex onscreen with Thornton. She used to be so classy, soft spoken, sweet, & above doing certain things, or so many of us thought. Now, I believe it was just an act, and we didn’t know her at all. Some people may say, it’s her life, we shouldn’t judge her. But as fans of movie stars, we have a right to express our thoughts about their lives because they should be role models and set good examples since they are in the public’s eyes. Also, if it weren’t for the fans patronizing the stars, they would not have the riches they have, or be stars. Our money help put them where they are.

    I am team Gabriel because Halle is dead wrong for trying to take him away from his daughter. He is not Olivier’s child, and never will be. Men (and women) come and go in our lives, but our children will always be our children, no matter what.

    I’m very disappointed that Olivier is going along with all of this involving Halle and her ex. Shame on him!

    In the end, Halle will be heart broken and wishing that Gabriel was still in her life. Hopefully, Gabriel will meet a real nice lady one day (like Eric Benet, David Justice) get married,have more kids, and put his horrible experience with Halle behind him. I pray that he will always be allowed to be a part in his baby girl’s life, and that she always knows and loves her daddy.

    May God continue to watch over Gabriel and Nahla and may the truth prevail!

      I love you, the poster below you and especially ZooBug. Very well written, because it is the truth. I agree 1000% with everything you wrote. Glad I’m not the only one not kissing this horrid chick’s ass and seeing right through her for what she really is. Thank you (98% of you, anyway…LOL) for not being mindless sheep.

    Halle is looking old and masculine. He would look so much better with a prettier woman. She is overrated.
