Halle Berry's Ex: Don't Call My Baby Black!

2/4/2011 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry's ex, Gabriel Aubry, "went nuts" whenever anyone would refer to their daughter as "black" ... sources tell TMZ.

0202_halle_berry_gabriel_EX_getty

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ ... whenever Gabriel would read a story about Nahla that referred to her as "black," he would go off, insisting his baby was white.  We're told Gabriel would tell Halle and others they should demand a "retraction" when such references were made regarding his daughter.

As TMZ previously reported, sources tell us Gabriel has called Halle the "N" word  -- and one woman previously involved with him referred to him as a "borderline racist."

We have been unable to get in touch with Gabriel's reps for comment.

I used to believe TMZ because they have been great so far with the investigation and all (not always, though). But now, this is just completely idiotic. Harvey, please stop printing this trash! At least when it's about Mel and Oksana, there's some few articles that side with Oksana just to give the readers fair reporting. But here, it's obviously manipulated to look like Gabriel is evil. There's not even a survey here whether who do we believe more. You do that with others. But with this, you completely side with Halle, giving her all the advantage and printing your so-called "sources" while not even mentioning other reports that Halle is also a monster.

Oh please! Stop with all the lies. Can't you see? Even if Halle was telling the truth (that's a big IF since she stinks so far), these whole press is damaging her kid, which makes her the worse parent.

Racist? Abusive? Give me a break! Sounds very Oksana to me!

First of all, if Halle is not 100% black, and she is a little light, then if her other part is white, he daughter is more white than black. First of all, if you want a white baby, then have protected sex with only white people. If you want mixed, then have a free for all. All these things should be discussed and highly considered when different races have sex. Eventually, there will be a baby. Think first before your pleasure. If Halle wanted a black baby, then she should have adopted one. If Gabriel wanted a pure white baby, then he should have only had sex with white women, just in case the protection did not work, or especially if there was none to begin with. I believe what was produced in this ended relationship is a bi-racial baby, which is very common today. Nothing wrong with that; again, if you require something, then you do what is necessary to get that something. Passion can destroy lives, it is just sex, but the consequences breathe.

Who'sThat    

This whole PR cr@p started when Gabe decided not to follow Halle
on movie location to watch Nahla...

http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20463699,00.html

it doesn't make sense why Halle has to have the child with her wherever she is...why couldn't Gabe watch the child at home with a certified nanny or such..i am sure she has a few...
why did Gabe had to take time out of his schedule just to meet Halle's demand to trek to wherever to have her child on location?

idk, but it just seems so unfair...the child would be fine at home with her father with a nanny to look after her...not travel all over the place...if there were any legitimate allegations of impropriety, she should have contacted the police or DSC a long time ago...not accuse Gabe of whatever that sticks...just seems a desperate need for her PR to contact the media to get the public on her side for this very private matter!

TheTruth    

In Canada the kid IS White
Everyone here is applying the American construct of race to the poor child

People change races when they cross the border
In most other countries in the world the kid is White.

The one drop rule is not universal. So I can understand him being pissed.

If the kid looks white, theyre white not all countries are color obsessed and do percentage breakdowns like here

Can someone back me up?

Gabriel and Halle both need help. She has been unstable since datung Wesley Snipes and the abuse he put her through. Halle never got help for that and carried it along in all her relationships. Gabriel is just as messed up with his childhood. You put the two of them together and it is a matter a time before the truth comes out who they really are and things start going wrong. When will they learn to deal with their demons of the PAST.

I don't believe this story, but even if it was true, so what if he doesn't want his daughter being called black.
The daughter is half white / half black, how does that make her black?
As a mixed race person I am sick of people ignoring the fact that mixed race people are WHITE too, I am proud to be half white, it doesn't matter if you are half black, half mexican, whatever, you are always categorized as the minority. I have the choice of embracing my white roots more than the minority roots, I was born here and have no ties whatsoever to my minority roots, but yet I should claim that?
I hate to break it to you people but mixed race people are not truly accepted by anybody other than mixed race people.
The reason people claim to be black when they are only half black is because they feel the need to fit into the group. But when the **** hits the fan you will be reminded that sorry you are only a half breed.

stefan,

the child is ONLY 25% Black, and that is provided Halle's father is/was full Black...

so IF this was true and Gabe said something like this, it may be a legitimate beef...i mean what about her 75% heritage>? perhaps he was questioning his heritage not being recognized not necessarily being racist about it...
what if the child is 25% spanish instead of black and Gabe said stop saying she is spanish, she is only 25% spanish and 75% white...is that being racist? i just think all this PR cr@p is unnecessary for the public and most of all for Nahla!

The baby is black. She is darker than her mother now, and she will only get darker as she ages. I think he must have known Halle Berry is black, and would have a black baby.

Berry had better be careful. Parental alienation is treated seriously by judges, who usually award custody to the parent who isn't engaging in that type of behavior.

Baby Daddy may be setting up Baby Mama, who can't help herself, and is falling into the trap.

STFU    

Its funny Halle had no problem with Gabriel until he broke up with her and
wants joint custody of his daughter. What Halle and her camp is trying to
suggest about Gabriel's character truly shows n points fingers at Halle's,
Vindictive, Arrogant, n its ALL about me character. The public will not be
fooled by you Halle. This is not ur first rodeo and we r tired of u playing
the VICTIM n not the BULLY.

STFU    

TMZ- how much is Hale's PR team paying you to spin in Halle's favor. Halls
is a crazy *ITCH and her truth character is finally out there. This is a
bad look for Halle as the tolls of men she has been through and still not
able to keep.

I'm sorry TMZ/Halle but why is this stuff just coming out NOW? Why after he filed to be recognized as the father of the child? Why did she let this unsafe, bad father, possible child molesting racist take care of their child when she was filming a movie out of the country. Something doesn't add up!

Halle of the sake of your daughter, stop leaking things to the press!

i agree that the one-drop rule is cr@p..
and ONLY in America...people are obsessed about race...

instead of being racist how about the father actually wanting people to recognize his child as being 75% white or his 50% Canadian heritage?
i am not sure that i believe all this PR cr@p coming out of Halle's side...in fact, i think it's very very tasteless!!
