Gabriel Aubry

Custody in Jeopardy

2/10/2012 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0120-gabriel-aubry-ex

Gabriel Aubry has been orderd to appear in Dependency Court because authorities are concerned about his ability to safely care for his child ... TMZ has learned.

Aubry is in court right now and the appearance was triggered by the L.A. County Dept. of Children and Family Services' investigation into allegations that Aubry is guilty of child endangerment.

Sources tell TMZ ... the DCFS investigation goes beyond an incident in which Gabriel allegedly pushed the nanny who was holding 3-year-old Nahla.

We're told DCFS is concerned about Nahla's safety in the care of Gabriel and that is why he was ordered to appear in Dependency Court.

We're told no ruling has been handed down ... yet.

10:48 AM PST -- TMZ has learned ... Nahla now has legal counsel that has been appointed by the court to represent her in the hearing.

This story is getting downright weird. There is something going on here the media is not reporting.

WHAT DID GABRIEL DO FOR HALLE TO WANT SUPERVISED VISITATION. Why would CPS be concerned about his ability to care for their child. What the hell is going on? Did Gabriel hit the child more than once? Did he hit her at all? Why would a baby need legal representation? I don't understand this at all.

I'm sorry this didn't work for either of them. Aubrey seems from what I've read he's got issues about Nyla's identity. If it's true, he should have thought about that before he did the deed. As for Halle, I think this very beautiful woman has trust issues - just a feeling.

Sounds like the three adults are all driven by their own personal insecurities. Good luck to all of you!

Everyone wants to blame Halle but all this come from their custody from day one after Halle consistently gave in to Gabriel's demands. From experience if the judge notices or thinks their is animosity he must protect the child, not Halle nor Gabriel.

Since the judge had Gabriel visits with his daughter supervised (with the nanny always with Nahla) then he has some concerns regarding custody with Gabriel. No matter HOW many times they went back to court the judge NEVER rescinded the order nor provided Gabriel with any of his claims. Gabriel being angry that Nahla is black also works against him; if child services investigated both then recommended they receive counseling in order to be better parents to Nahla why did he refuse?

Good point at 106. So many children really are abused and this crap gets theirr time and attention.

I hope Halle Berry rots in hell for what she's done. She's the quite possibly the most despicable human being on the planet.

Look at the majority of responses every time a story on these three run. Remember, America was right about Kim K, Casey Anthony and now Halle. Average Americans have no dog in this fight, they simply can see right from wrong. In this case, Halle is clearly wrong.

Harvey and crew....shame on you...Gabe's custody was NEVER in jeopardy. They were just ruling whether or not he should have supervised visits or not plus what other recs DFCS had for them and the judge. He and Halle still have joint custody.

What bothers me about all of this, is that ALL the acusations come from the worker of Halle Barry! Do you think either you or I would react differently to a woman that refused to give us OUR child? Do you think we would NOT shout at our exes employee that is DEMANDING to know why her keep is not in school? This guy is not a millionaire - like his ex - he does not have a paid employee watching his daughter! He is just trying to keep in his daughters life! this is the highest price ever! He HAS to fight - what else can he do? What bothers me it is he said she said - as it is STILL being investigated - but they are treating him like an abuser! I am glad Nahla finally has a lawyer, Halle Berry should bow her head in shame over what she has done! She had NO problem with him watching their daughter till he STOPPED jumping when she said "Jump" Remember this only got nasty when he didn't want to "babysit" for her while she was doing a movie! Then ALL hell broke loose! I REALLY feel sorry for this man - I don't think this would have happened if it was a mother and not a father! Anyone can say ANYTHING about someone else - it should not be considered real or valid!

Halley did not make Gabriel push the nanny. He did that all on his own. I am sure that act frighten Nahla. Now when she is with her father, she will be nervous. Just go away Gabriel, you have had your 15min.
