Halle Berry's Custody War -- A Long Time Brewing

2/1/2011 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have been locked in conflict over custody of 2-year-old Nahla for months ... and much of it centers around Halle's movie career.

Halle Berry Custody Battle

Sources familiar with the case tell TMZ ... Aubry has complained when Halle leaves town it interferes with his ability to be a father.  Accommodations were made for Gabriel to accompany Halle and Nahla to London last August after he complained. 

Sources say the couple has never gone to court to establish custody and visitation rights.  They have tried working it out between themselves, but the situation has now become impossible.

TMZ broke the story ... Gabriel filed for paternity last month.  Officially we're being told it was a formality.  In fact, it was a prelude to what has become a bitter custody fight.

I don't blame him for being upset. Is he supposed to go months without seeing his daughter just because Halle is making a movie? She has enough money so she never has to work again...shouldn't your child's access to her father be more important than a movie? She's lucky her little girl has a dad that loves her and wants to be a part of her life.

I think he's looking for cash, Halle doesn't work that much where it would interfere with the child. What kind of idiot is he to not demand his name on the birth certificate from the start as soon as she was born.

You are being sarcastic or serious? You honestly see NO APPEAL in that man? He is incredibly attractive, gorgeous face, gorgeous body, so attractive that he works as a male model. I don't know if he is an ahole or not, but speaking strictly of looks and nothing else, you find NOTHING appealing in him? Are you blind?

I hope they can work out an equitable arrangement for the sake of their little girl. If my husband and I ever seperated, I can't imagine cutting him out of their lives. They adore him as I am sure Nahla loves and needs her dad!

Is it possible all these crazee hollywood celebs are simply afflicted with advanced Syphillis? It makes you loose your marbles at later stages and THEY ARE ALL SLEEPING WITH EACHOTHER so verry possible.

Well, if it comes down to who can provide a stable environment for the child, Halle loses that because of her career, and Gabriel should get primary physical custody. Halle seems to think it was only her egg that created that child, but sorry missy, there was a sperm involved too. Gabriel has rights and i agree with whomever said men need to boycott movies of women who treat their child's father the way Halle wants to treat Gabriel.

For those who say she doesn't work that much, here's her info from IMDb:
The Surrogate (pre-production) 2011
The Skank Robbers (pre-production) 2011
Cloud Atlas (pre-production) 2011
Shoe Addicts Anonymous (pre-production) 2011
New Year's Eve (filming) 2011
Dark Tide (post-production) 2010
Frankie and Alice (released) 2010

She also is busy with all those cosmetics contracts. I think Gabriel Aubry has a valid point based on this list alone! He is a world reknown model with huge contracts himself, but has slowed down since the birth of Nahla...
I have heard from numerous sources that Halle is a huge control freak!!!!
