Halle Berry

SHUT DOWN in Custody Battle

Nahla Stays in U.S.A.

Halle Berry just lost big in court -- a judge has ruled she cannot permanently move her 4-year-old daughter to France ... TMZ has learned.

Halle had been fighting tooth and nail with her baby daddy Gabriel Aubry to bring Nahla to Paris, where Halle wants to live with her fiance Olivier Martinez.

Halle argued the L.A. paparazzi scene made life in California too dangerous for her and her daughter -- but today the judge in the case ruled in favor of Gabriel, refusing to let Halle jet to France with their kid.

The full details of the ruling are unclear -- but one thing's for sure ... Halle did NOT get what she wanted. 

Halle has said from the beginning she never wanted to remove Gabriel from Nahla's life -- she merely believed France would be safer for everyone involved.

Good!!! I am glad that the courts opted not to screw up another childs life by allowing one parent that could not figure out their relationship run off with the child that the Dad is very much involved with. So sad that some parents make all of these bad choices. It would be the child or children that suffer immensly. The children have no say so or the power when their parents can not figure it out.

It's about time she went in front of a judge who won't kiss her rotten tail. The only reason she is doing this is to punish Aubry. She cares nothing about this child at ALL, if she can try to alliate her from her father.
This nut has father issues and still hates her father. You know she's not in her right mind because if she had the sense God gave her she would be thanking her lucky stars this man loves that child.
He should have custody and she should be sent to mandatory head counsleing for a number of years.
The paps are following her because she probbly has then on speed dial and if not, there is Malibu, Santa Barbara and other places. This is a liar!

As a Canadian, I am not sure of US law but find this strange. On the West Coast, a judge shuts down Halle Berry's request to move her child to France, whereas on the East Coast , a judge decides that Kelly Rutherford's children can move to France with their German born father, who does not have US status and had to leave the US, as they divorced. Kelly Rutherford must travel to France to see her children because her ex cannot return to the US, so why cannot Halle's ex travel to France to see his child? Double standard or different state laws? Either way it is the children that suffer.

Here's an idea....DON'T LIVE IN LA! She has the money, she can live in any remote, ranch or suburban place in California.

Does Gabriel have a job? Most of the comments here seem to be giving him a pass. Sorry, Gabruel; this is America and people work esp. if they want a certain lifestyle. Go get a JOB. Halle should not support you.

A closed adoption would have been a better choice for Halle Berry. There is a small part of me that wonders if she is secretly jealous of the relationship that Nahla has with her father because she did not have one with her own. It may be a case of her merely being a selfish hag but I think its a little deeper on some levels.
