Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry

Counseling for Everyone

1/31/2012 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have been urged to get some serious counseling for the benefit of Nahla, but their marathon court hearing today was contentious and largely unproductive ... law enforcement sources connected with the case tell TMZ.

We've learned the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services submitted more than a dozen recommendations to the judge, including mediation ... in which a 3rd party would sit with Halle and Gabriel and try to figure out how they can peacefully raise their child.  We're told Halle was receptive but Gabriel wasn't.

And our sources say ... Halle agreed to continue her individual counseling, which will help her deal with what has become an impossible situation.

As for Gabriel, he's agreed to counseling for his anger issues.

And, as we first reported, both parties agreed today to send 3-year-old Nahla to counseling.

We're told the judge did not make any decision on the fate of the nanny, whom Gabriel wants fired.

And the judge hasn't ruled on Halle's request to keep Gabriel from Nahla until the child endangerment investigation runs its course.

Sources say Gabriel has objected to most of the recommendations and the judge is on the verge of holding a full hearing -- similar to a trial -- so he can firmly call the shots.

I life long commitment (a child) with someone who called you a "Ghetto N!gg@"???? smh

You should get to know people long enough to know if they are racist before you get married and have a baby by them.

Halle is trash for bringing this child into the world like this.

celebrities should not have kids .because they all have these ego problems ,there first concern it how they look in the mirror, and these poor kids have to deal with that,and its not fair for them to have crazy parents and 99% of celebrities are in sane.,if its not there way, its no way, and when you have two of them with the same personality problems you have a poor child getting pulled in all different directions,and its wrong. a kid should never have to choose which parent to be with ,both parents should work together for the sake of there children.this poor baby in the future will need help if these two idiots dont get it together.

Halle says-

We’ll make sure we always do what is right for her and put her first. And she will see as she grows that we have a lot of love for each other.”

And now her daughter is 3 and IN THERAPY-

3 and in therapy, how terrible is that?

Never good when it goes to a full hearing (trial, custody evaluation etc...) No one wins. There will have to be concessions made on both sides. I believe they call it "splitting the baby". Always better to be viewed as the party willing to share time, openly communicate and willing to work with the other parent. Word of warning to both parents; the judge could get tired of all the BS (and it does not matter who is the bigger of the BS'ers)& decide to make an order just to get them out of his courtroom for a while. It happens frequently. Listen mom and dad, don't put the parenting of your child into the hands of a family law judge. Also I highly recommend the court-ordered communication system called Our Family Wizard. Good Luck.

Wow, TMZ is really not trying to hide their loyalty (paid for Im sure) to Halle Berry. This is NOT a 'news' site, it's a tabloid site. We dont have all the details of what was said as Im sure TMZ was not privy and or censored them. We dont know if Gabriel wasnt receptive because the terms were more skewed to Halle's interest and not his? The point is we dont. Only the judge and those directly involved know exactly what went on. The rest is speculation and heresay filtered/ censored through PR and media people.

So many celebrities are using Egg Donors and even Surrogates who carry a baby for them. Sometimes because they cant be bothered being pregnant, sometimes because they dont want to ruin their figures, sometimes because they are too OLD to get pregnant. Halle Berry used an EGG donor to have her baby, and the sperm of her boyfriend. Now she is worried that he will reveal that she is NOT the real mother of this child. She doesnt want the child to know or the public to know. Halle is NOT the biological mother to this child. Many celebrities use Egg donors, but they are really egg SELLERS, they sell their eggs. When we see a celebrity over 40 having a baby, sometimes their first child, and sometimes they have twins as their first child, you can bet a Egg SELLER was used. It is said that some celebrities pretend they are pregnant with a tummy cushion and another woman is PAID to carry a child and then SELL it to them.

Maybe if you can't stay with a man or choose a decent one to save your life, you should just go to a sperm bank if you want a baby.

I think he has hit a wall. I can see why he is mistrusting going through this process. He has never really won when it comes to the court and Halle, so why would this time be any different? One thing is a given, get rid of the nanny.

I think Gabriel Aubry could kill someone, and the psychopathic, misogynistic, and racist, mostly female commentators on this topic, would say how Halle made him do it. I don't care how mean your ex-wife, girlfriend is, it's not an EXCUSE to go shoving other people around, including people who are carrying your daughter at the time. And to answer someone's question, yes it is completely possible for women to pick abusers over and over again. It is a textbook psychology case for women who grew up in an abusive household, to pick abusers OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Also, there's no such diagnosis as "batsh*t crazy." Those are just the words of primitive people who don't like someone for some reason, and spew their hatred that way.
