Halle Berry

Wants Out of U.S.

Because of Death Threats

2/9/2012 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry does not want to leave the U.S. for France with daughter Nahla because the food is so good over there ... she wants out of this country because she fears for her life and the life of her child.

TMZ broke the story ... Halle is asking a judge for permission to move to France with Nahla ... something Gabriel Aubry is trying to block.

We've learned there have been and are serious threats to Halle's life and she feels the move is a life or death situation.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Robert Hoskins, a mentally unstable man, escaped from a mental institution last week.

We've learned he has made threats against Halle's life -- specifically to "slit her throat."

Hoskins is no stranger to the law -- he has threatened to slit Madonna's throat in the past and was actually shot by her bodyguard in 1995 after he trespassed onto Madge's property.

And as we first reported, another stalker who recently trespassed onto Halle's property multiple times has just been released from jail.

Friends of Halle tell us ... she is particularly concerned because Starmaps and some Hollywood bus tours literally take tourists to her doorstep.

And Halle's friends say ... the actress is very concerned that baby daddy Gabriel Aubry is parading Nahla in front of paparazzi almost daily and possibly putting her in harm's way.

Bottom line -- Halle's M.O. for wanting to move is rooted in security ... not revenge.

Whatever she's selling, I'm not buying it.
REAL TALK: All part of the grand plan to steal the child away form the father... she wanted a cute Baby Daddy/sperm donor. She picked the wrong race for that.

BS-Halle is trying to keep Gabriel away from his child! It is obvious. It is not a coincidence that this comes right after she failed to strip him of custody after those made up allegations. If the judge has any decency he should not allow her to move to France where her daughter's father can not see her anywhere near as much. Her daughter will hate her for keeping her away from her father when she is older. Halle is psychotic. TMZ you need to be ashamed of yourselves for stating as if it is a fact that Halle wanting to move has to do with security when your sources are Halle's friends!

Sincerity, You have no idea if Gabriel has anger issues or has race issues since you don't know him and you are only going on what that proven liar Halle and her friends say! Their child would be a lot better off with Gabriel even if he was poor which he is not, than with Halle since she is a crazy evil woman which she has proven also! Most people are on Gabriel's side for a reason. I think you are the one smoking crack.

I was wondering have any of you by chance met Halle? It seems 95% of the people posting have very strong opinions about someone they have never met! Anyone who thinks logically would see that Gabriel is no saint either! If he was the courts wouldn't have ordered anger management and his case with the nanny is still pending! If my baby's father had anger issues, I sure as hell wouldn't be leaving her with him! No one truly knows what happened between these two and should reserve judgment! The child is the most important person here and needs both parents(not just her dad)! If the situation demands it, then both should be adults and come to a compromise -- TMZ make it their business to report on celebrities and I am sure neither Halle nor Gabriel's PR team solicit favor because not all stories tmz reports favor them! Let's be realistic and stop all the emotional rambling--A child needs BOTH parents!

Yeah, she should have enough money to live in a gated community or build a wall around her house...

REMEMBER AS REPORTED BY TMZ, Gabriel Aubry "AGREED" to follow DCFS's recommendation to attend "ANGER MANAGEMENT" classes. If he had no "ANGER" issues to begin with, this WOULDN'T BE NECESSARY. His former girlfriend and a business partner "CONFIRMED" that he definitely has "RACE" related issues. Nahla's mother is "bi-racial" and much "BETTER EQUIPPED" to deal with the issues of "RACE" as opposed to some "TRIFLING AZZ" MAN-CHILD. Ole Clueless allegedly "VERBALLY" and "PHYSICALLY" abused Nahla's nanny. He hasn't been completely "CLEARED" of those charges, YET!!! NO ONE in their "RIGHT MIND" would leave their child with someone who's so "ILL-EQUIPPED" to deal with the responsibilities of raising a child ON HIS OWN. ON THE CONTRARY, SUNSET!!! YOU'RE THE "ONE" SMOKING CRACK!!! NOT ME!!!

She just seems so EVIL!!! All of her ex-husbands & Ex-boyfriends loathe her! I would never pay to see her in another movie!

Can't stand this nasty women. I feel so bad for both Nala and Gabriel! He obviously loves his little girl so much and she is trying everything in her power to get in the way of that.

Nahla will someday grow up to resent Halle! I have faith in the justice system and pray the judge will see through her. Gabriel seems to be an awesome, wonderful, loving father who isn't about to allow this vapid woman get in the way of his relationship with his precious daughter! I applaud him for not lying down and rolling over for her!

I remember when she was a stepmother to Eric's motherless little girl. When they split up- it appeared as though she just ended her relationship with that poor little girl!

I always wondered how Halle could just kick her out of her life like that??? Who does that? She used to be photographed all over Hollywood with her, playing the part! In reality, it seems as though she ended up being a wicked stepmother who totally abandage a motherless, little girl? Sad....

It appears as though everyone who crosses this woman's path will end up getting the shaft in the end! In my opinion, she comes off as being a crazy, wildly unstable, wicked, washed-up old hollywood actress!

I think it is DISGUSTING what she is doing to her daughter! NO ONE believes that her taking Nahla to France has ANYTHING to do with safety! This is ALL about changing the rules, she wanted Gabriel to loose custody - he didn't, she wanted the courts to demand the over stepping nanny to be with Nahla - he didn't! Social workers found NO evidence that he had hurt the nanny or pushed her (basically calling the nanny's testimony suspect)! So on the eve of a court ruling - that could define what happens next - she decides to do the last final act, by ripping her daughter away from her father! THAT is NOT a worthy mother! Halle's way or no way! I hope she looses tomorrow and I hope she can NOT move her child thousands of miles away!

Sure, I believe she's scared of the stalker. But you don't deal with that fear by running thousands of miles away, across a continent and an ocean, especially when that means making it extremely difficult for your child's father to see her frequently. A three year old needs realspace contact with both parents. Nahla's parents have joint custody for good reason. Halle is trying to get rid of the child's father. She doesn't have that right.


Perhaps if Gabriel Aubry would agree to "PICK UP THE TAB" for the additional "SECURITY RELATED" expenses, Halle Berry wouldn't deem it necessary to permanently relocate abroad!!! After all, she didn't arrange for Robert Hoskins' escape. The man is "DANGEROUS" and his "threats" shouldn't be IGNORED!!! She's already had to deal with another stalker who has recently trespassed on her property, TWICE!!! Any responsible parent would be "extremely" concerned!!! If Gabriel Aubry actually "CARED" about "ANYONE" EXCEPT "HIMSELF", he would "MAN-UP" and offer her and Nahla whatever assistance he deemed necessary to help "ALLEVIATE" their security concerns. Surprisingly, that DOESN'T seem to be the case. This "FOOL" is only concerned about his "MEAL TICKET" not being within "arms reach" for convenient PHOTO OPS!!! It's time for him to "STOP WHINING" AND "STEP UP"!!!

Halle Berry = Nut Job!
This is a very "low" attempt to take away a man's parental rights! The Judge will not grant this...unless he is paid off under the table! Also, is she saying that France is safer than the U.S. and she doesn't feel safe here?...cause that sounds insulting to an American...i'm insulted by Halle Berry's suggestion!
As for moving with her "boyfriend" safe is that?...we all know her bad "relationship" choices...her bad history with men...she "always" picks the wrong men...the only difference is that b4, it was just her who had to suffer the consequences of those bad choices...but now...she has a daughter, who she is trying to take away from her father to go live with some strange judge in his right mind will allow matter if she claims that there are 100 serial killers on the loose threatening to slit her throat!
Halle Berry = Bitter Nut Job!

Where are the pictures of Gabriel parading Nahla around the internet? I have only seen pictures of Halle and Nahla. I am a bit confused.

I wouldn't be surprised if some of the psychopaths on this board, who spew hatred toward Halle Berry on a daily basis, are the ones who are making death threats against her. You say she's nuts, but you spew psychopathic hatred toward a woman you don't even know, and that's being sane?
