Halle Berry Could Die

Like Princess Diana

Halle Berry
faces the same tragic fate as Princess Diana if she moves to France -- so said Gabriel Aubry's attorney in L.A. court ... TMZ has learned.

As we reported, Halle and Gabriel are embroiled in a court battle over whether Halle should be allowed to move to France with the ex-couple's daughter Nahla. Halle believes the kid will be better protected from aggressive paparazzi in France ... thanks to the country's strict anti-pap laws.

But Gabriel's attorney argued Halle and Nahla would be walking right into the lion's den -- because France is the same country where Princess Diana was killed in a wild paparazzi car chase back in 1997.

Halle's lawyer called several French lawyers -- who testified that French judges will nail any photog who goes after a celeb.

Under French laws, paparazzi can't photograph celebrities who don't want their pictures taken -- even if they're out in public.

Photogs who violate the law can be sued for big bucks, and if they harass the celeb they can be criminally prosecuted.

The trial should last for several weeks.

Halle is proving herself to be a vindictive woman who purposely is trying everything possible to damage the relationship between Gabriel and his daughter. There is no way she NEEDS to move anywhere to be safe. Dumb beyotch can live just about anywhere in the US if your smart and have security. Stay out of LA and Hollywierd is all. It's only an excuse for her though. Hate her soooo much and will refuse to watch anything she is in.

@Noreen Huggins and the rest of the gang--There's no proof any of this has happened since there no media is allowed inside the court room and all do***ents are sealed to those who are not associated with the case. I am not saying this may not be part of Aubry's aurgument, I don't think this is there sole argument. The guy can't be a total fu*&^%$ idiot, he got Aubry $20K/mo. support because Halle was too arrogant not to have him sign anything in their agreement and was unable to buy him off since day one. I am sure both Team Aubry and the Judge's team are aware of all of Halle's staged photos here and abroad. If any of this is remotely true--Team Halle leaked it. It's a little different than other sources finding out that 17 days have been blocked off on the court docket (if true) is not sealed info. What TMZ is reporting is.

Umm Halle may be famous but not in comparison to Princess Diana. Seriously, doubt press is going to follow her anywhere over there.

It's totally false, papa can take pictures of whoever they want, they can be sued but sometimes they even win. Otherwise we would have these celeb magazines and there are t of them.
I saw a picture of her in front of Nahla's day-nursery where the kids of Sofia Coppola go to.
So this is BS

RE: them moving to Canada or elsewhere in the US. Halle tried buying the not-so-kid -proof lake front property on Molson Lake outside Montreal which is for sale as well as looking for property at Tiburon in Marin County outside SF before they split. Looks like Halle didn't want to move with Gabe. Until we know more info...take what TMZ and other sources say until it's over since we really don't know what's really being said since the info is sealed and no media is in the court room.

I won't be watching anymore of her movies. She needs to get over herself and live near the child's father - he is just as important for the child as she is.

Halle's staged shots via TMZ, DMUK etc of Halle trying to blend in while out site seeing and visiting that after school art school for Nahla ---the pappi law thing and TMZ's argument is bogus.

Halle and her daughter will NOT be in any danger from paps in France. There is a law there that they have to stay a certain distance away from celebrities especially when driving.
The Paps were WAY behind Dianas car the night of her fatal accident. That has been proven. Diana was murdered . . . her death was an assassination. Halle & Nahla will not be in any danger in France. If I had to put up with the spying, sneaky, constantly-in-your-face paps like they do, I'd probably move to another country too. Good luck to both.

French law is tough on paparazzi, especially when it comes to snapping photos of children.
