Halle Berry

Puts Paparazzi On Trial ...

Today

EXCLUSIVE

0815_halle_berry_nahla_tmz_article_1Halle Berry is going to court today  to convince a judge to let her move to Paris with 4-year-old Nahla -- over the vigorous objections of baby daddy Gabriel Aubry -- and Halle's secret weapon is the paparazzi.

Halle will try to prove it's unsafe for her to continue living in the U.S. because the paparazzi have created extreme danger for her and Nahla. We've been in touch with various paparazzi agencies and know Halle's lawyer, Stephen Kolodny, has been on the hunt for video he can show the judge ... hoping to show Halle and Nahla being "terrorized" by aggressive photogs. The trial will become a video presentation, which will include a crazy scene where Halle had to call the Beverly Hills Police so she and Nahla could make an escape from a restaurant.

Ironically, Halle has subpoenaed her arch-enemy, paparazzo Andrew Deetz. You'll recall, Halle went nuclear on the guy (see video) after he dogged Nahla at her school. Sources connected with Deetz tell TMZ ... Deetz has not only been subpoenaed, he will gladly testify it's his job to be uber-aggressive.

And we've spoken with sources connected with expert witnesses who will testify Halle and Nahla will get safe haven in France, where it's a crime to harass celebrities in public.

Kolodny did not return our calls.

TMZ will be in court for the fireworks.

Sources connected with Gabriel tell us ... the model knows Kolodny will also set his sights on him, painting him as a lousy human being.

In the video i saw halle break more laws than the pap the pap was in his car and halle was at his window berating him at the school the pap was parked on the street in his car he did not get out and did not engage halle got out of her car with her friend or assistant and went off on the pap. A pap has a right to do there job also.

When you get paid $10 million dollars per movie, it's the price of fame, dear.

anyone with half a brain can see what is going on here.she has been trying to kick the dad out of the kids life for a while.so she confronts a pap and uses fear of the kids safety as an excuse to separate the kid from the father by being allowed to move to france.this bitch is nothing but s***.

She's nearly irrelevant as it is. If she waits another six months, no paps will care if she walks by them naked. She is in no more danger than many stars. It comes with the territory. If she didn't want to be famous, she could have taken a job waiting tables or working for *gasp* a charitable organization. What a poor excuse for wanting to take her child away from her father to another country.

She is grasping at straws. She tried to use Gabriel himself as the problem (very, very maliciously) and the judge threw that out, so she has to find something else. Funny how Gabriel just continued to ask paps to stop taking pictures outside of her school, but Halle has to do something like this.

Hollywood wants to have their cake, and eat it too. You want the exposure from the paparazzi to further your careers, but you want to bytch about it too. There is no reason why celebrities could not come together to get laws in place like France has, but they want the exposure more. The judge should not let her go, because that is denying Nahla a relationship with her natural father. By the way, Halle, there are bigger stars than you.
