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.

Halle's lost respect from me on this one. I get the impression now that she's moved on, she wants to be able to take the child with her whenever, where ever, and for as long as she wants when she travels. It's a shame how women complain about a absent fathers but then there are those women who want to actively keep the father away from his child for selfish reasons.

This Gabriel guy is just being the GOLD DIGGER in this situation, Halle Berry is an actress who just had to leave a movie role (taken up by N Kidman) because of this nonsense ( but she is still busy)..... and this Gabriel mook is an out of work model (basically a stay at home dad).... Maybe Halle has issues with men but that has NO TRANSLATION to daughter what so ever! Gabriel is just trying to get paid.... well I say go for yours Gabriel.... women do it to us men all the time!!! (though u now get the "greedy b-i-t-c-h" label..... as a dude, Gabriel.. ( most likely a flamer, but still a man) how does that feel???

1. This Top Male Model recently ended a long time romance with his baby momma. The Woman was beautiful, but she had man issues. He decided it was best if they parted. He recently befriended a sexy Reality Star. They look good together, but she may be only using him for publicity. She prefers African American men. Gabriel Aubrey (Halle Berry)/Kim Kardashian

This Male Model has a baby by an Oscar Winner. This woman is very powerful. She recently made him break up with a Reality Star. He was so afraid that he dumped the reality star. Gabriel Aubry/Halle Berry/Kim Kardashian

When Boy and Girl 1 were together, Girl 1 had lots and lots of nasty things to say privately about Girl 2, another celebrity. Since Girl 1 and Girl 2 have never run in the same circles (one is known for film, and the other for television), it was unlikely to ever become more than a running joke between our couple that Girl 2 was a "no-talent" "slut". Well, that is, until they split up. His first public hookup after the split? With Girl 2. To say Girl 1 is furious would be an understatement. The tide has turned, and what started out as an amicable break up has now become an all-out private war that includes lots of screaming matches on the phone about how Girl 1 doesn’t want that "plastic whore" anywhere near their child/ren. For the record, the new relationship is a PR setup. Boy couldn’t care less about Girl 2. He just loves the attention that another relationship brings. And he really, really loves that there is nothing on earth that irritates Girl 1 more.
Boy: Gabriel Autrey
Girl 1: Halle Berry
Girl 2: Kim Kardashian

I hope they put this behind them for the sake of their daughter and move on. Halle has said herself she had issues growing up. We have no idea whether she sought help or not. My guess is, she had, but no one knows for sure. So best to leave that speculation alone.

As for her past (the car accident and whatnot), if parents had to be graded for their past mistakes, indiscretions, etc., there wouldn't be many A+ parents around...think about it.

HE WILL NEVER GET CUSTODY! NO JUDGE WILL TAKE THAT CHILD AWAY FROM HER OSCAR WINNING, DRUG FREE, WEALTHY, LOVING MOM FOR A MALE MODEL....WHY IS SHE CRAZY? SHE IS NOT ALLOWING ANY MAN TO WALK ALL OVER HER.....SO SHE GETS THAT TITLE....THIS WORLD IS SICK!

Team CM u need to see Sharon Stone about that statement. Her ex got sole physical custody & so did Kevin Federline. Both happened in the state of CA.

@ CarolynAB
You say "Gabriel Aubry comes from a tight-knit French-Canadian family" but where was this "tight-knit" family when he was bounced around in 5 different foster homes before he turned 18? You really should do some research before you make statements like that. He's saying that her career is keeping him away from his daughter but what about his career? If he is still truly a top male model, then would't his career keep Halle from her daughter as well? Maybe everybody needs to hold off on passing judgement until the facts are on the table, but I would not be suprised if it's the same old song & dance before we have all seen before.

The dude wants to be a dad. I think that alone is great in a world where th rich and celebs dont mind using nannies to raise their kids. Its is completly open to the world, that he has gone out of his way to be with his child, even when Hallie was away, working, over seas, for months. So if she can not be grown up to work things out, then a judge needs to say do this or elese to her.

Not an intellectual giant are you? Buy a thesaurus and try to do a better job when you write.
HB is a nut job and she was "lucky" to find anyone who'd have her kid. What did it take? 36 pregnancy test strips according to an Oprah interview. Sounds like Aubry was worth the effort in her eyes. Gabriel is Nahla's father and should have contact with Nahla without the psychological issues that Halle has demonstrated.
Laugh out whatever orifice you want, the rest of us will use a room deoderant to disinfect the offending space you take up.

The only thing this man want is money. The child hold the key to that he don't care. The black woman got it going on and he want a piece of her pie. As long as he got the child he get the child support from her. Your know his career is down the toliet. Next time Ms. Berry hit and run. From these so call men.

Wow, such venom. Do any of you know her personally? You can't hate a person without knowing them. Is anyone questioning what he might have done? Why wait until they split to file for paternity? What did he agree to before and now has changed his mind? Why does he wants child support - doesn't he have a job or is he proposing to be a full time Dad while Halle works? What does it say about him dating Kim K.? Is he a hanger on? People, we're on the outside looking is so reserve judgement and don't be so hateful.

Did anyone think to ask why he needs her to pay him child support for the time that he has his daughter?

He may love his daughter, but is after a paycheck.
