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.


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.

Looks like to me that someone is trying to trash Gabriel Aubrey's reputation. That someone would be of course the person who put this story out there and the person who cooperated by blogging it. Ruining someone else's reputation is a fun game for some people.

First people needs to read the facts instead of just reading one article and then making comments. Halle Barry was famous and had money long before he came along. Matter of fact no one had even heard of Gabriel Aubry until she went on the Oprah show and was talking about him. Then the next thing you know this Macy commercial comes out with a lot of famous women talking about getting a look at him. So she made him famous not the other way around. Some people need to stop judging and clean out your own back yard. Not once have we heard Halle herself claim that this is what he has said. In this article it states sources of Halle. We all know that the media will and can lie to get a story. But the bottom line is this is about a child and a mother no matter how famous or how much money she has will protect and fight for her child to the death of her. If he really wanted to be with his child he should have stayed. Sometimes people have to put others well being before their owns. And last people Kim does not go out with Gabriel she dumped him after two dates. Even she said he was only with her for fame and publicity. READ PEOPLE, READ!!!

Not buying this story. Berry is spoon feeding the media this garbage trying to use skin color as bait ruin what little credibility this guy may possess for her own personal gain (Funny how she is always "The Victim" of these seemingly attractive, but later deemed terrible men). As for the comments made by his ex GF, well she is not credible and most likely bitter because Aubrey traded up to hot, beautiful and rich.

That's absurd! I've read dozens of articles about their child and never, ever have I seen her described as "black." Who would write that? Sounds like a story placed by her people. Also, it's far too easy to refer to someone as a "borderline racist." Gabriel is a French Canadian from a large family - he is likely very family oriented and nothing like what Halle's team is trying to portray through the media.

In the first place no one live in their homes.So no one here can judge or refference as to what has transpired.Everyone needs to live their own tremoltrous lives and let these to deal with themselves.We weren't the ones creating their beloved child.So lets not comment on either parent.Cause we'll don'thave a clue about either human being or what goes on in their home.We should just care for our own children and leave their life alone.God watches everyone in their own domain.What secrets are we'll hiding?

Nahla isn't exactly black though. So he is correct. Halle is mixed, Aubry is white, so Nahla is essentially more "white" than black. (this is coming from a black girl)

it's really funny how everyone is foaming at the mouth about the "defamation" of gabriel aubry and champing at the bit to attack halle berry. you all seem to be laboring under the delusion that people actually give a **** about gabriel aubry. he is a canadian model who owns a friggin cafe for god's sake. stop pretending he has some enormous public persona to uphold. you all have your head so far up these celebrities' asses that it's actually pathetic. and don't even respond with a "if you don't care why comment", because that would simply be a tangential ad hominem argument designed to distract from the sadness that is your life. what you fail to realize is that no matter how many times you post on this website, you are not going to have any salient effect on the lives of either of these two people. it's so laughable to read your feeble attempts to do so, however. if you really think that nahla will be flipping through the annals of crap media sites like TMZ 16 years from now, you're clearly as psychotic as you sound.

Does it really matter what colour she is? She will learn her maternal background from mum, and paternal background/heritage from her father. As she grows she will form her own identity, black, white or yellow.

Too much emphasis is placed on colour of skin

Who writes stories about celebrity kids that refers to their race. Why would an article even talk about what race the child is. I have to say that I've lost alot of respect for Halle.

Who's the idiot that said that it's a proven fact that neither of Halle's parents are black. What a dummy. Her father is black you meat head. Wow! dumb dumb!

You can tell she is not white. Around the world all different ethnicities are considered black. To be black you do not have to have 2 black parents you have to look like a person with African roots, features, or complexion.

Almost ALL black people in the USA are MGM's (mulit-generational-mix) not 100% African. The USA needs to adopt this notion just as most of the world has. Halle's baby is also a MGM just as Halle herself is.

o' come on! Halle is a spoiled wanker who don't want to share the baby. That's her daddy - she deserves to BE with her daddy. Hopefully he can make sure she doesnt turn out like mommy, whose obviously the racist. 'one drop rule' indeed! who talks like that anyways? cheeseNrice Halle - get a grip and get some class and get OUT of the limelight. Your just trying to stay relevant now, aren't you?

I myself would consider the child to be black. I come a family of mixed race. my mother is Black, French, Spanish and Choctaw Indian and my my father is White, Black and Cherokee Indian so what does that make me, Black so Gabe get over it.
