Halle Berry

SHUT DOWN in Custody Battle

Nahla Stays in U.S.A.

11/9/2012 4:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

no matter how much she dislikes the father of her daughter, he is still the father of the daughter and she cannot take that right away from him. she has to view this differently, her daughter needs the father no matter how much she does not get along with him, don't just think of what she thinks but think of the daugther too!!! daughter needs a father! A real father!

Yes! That woman is manipulative and a liar, and her ridiculous demand to take daughter out of the USA was a selfish ploy to hurt her daughter's father.
Go Gabriel!

LMAO She thought her celebrity would win the case. What selfish POS she is. She isn't even thinking of her daughter only herself. She is only trying to hurt Gabriel. So glad she lost. Suck it Hallie!!! LOL

"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."

So she gets to move to Paris, what's she gonna do when her fiance cheats on her? Seriously, he's NEVER been faithful to any girlfriend.

I hope Halle isn't having some type of meltdown. "Someone" went through here and "hated" every pro-Gabriel comment, which 99.9% are. :-/

Most parents would do anything for their children. Halle Berry wanted to move countries so she could be with her boyfriend.

Halle Berry put herself first and knew that moving overseas would mean her daughter would be deprived of having her father in her life.

I always want my children not to have as much contact with both parents as possible.

Selfish Selfish Selfish Halle Berry.

So happy the judge found that the Best Interests of the Child is having the childs father in her life.

Really very disappointed in Halle Berry with this it showed that Halle Berry would happily deprive her child of her father in order to please herself.

I have just read all the comments on this story. Its universal Halle Berry is a disgusting individual.

There is nothing more beautiful than a mothers love. Halle Berry is a twisted selfish person who manages to break natures instinctive mother/child bond of love and nurturing.

Halle Berry would harm even her child in order tos ee her boyfriend more often.

Guess that means no wedding???? Halle did you really think that the Family Court Judge would rule in your favor? Glad he saw through your bs. It's karmic retribution time. TMZ that's total bull**** about Halle never wanted to separate Nahla from her father? She had ample chances to live in Canada or outside SF with Gabe and Nahla but didn't want that. The only reason she wanted to move to France was to be with Martinez whom she first met at a dinner party in Montreal in 2003 with Angelina Jolie, BillyBob, Martinez and Minogue not on the set of Dark Tide. Don't feel sorry for Halle even though Gabe's not my fave---Halle lied about their arrangement from day one of pursuing him and thought she could buy him off. She's paying him $20K/mo because she was stupid enough not to cover her a$$ in having him sign an agreement. Don't cry for me Halle Berry.

I'm's not right IMO to take your kid to live with you and your new man all the way across the world when the bio father (who is in the kids life) doesn't want you to. I think it was a selfish request that would have damaged the relationship between father and daughter. ALSO Halle's excuse for wanting to move was stupid and transparent...why move all the way across the world to get away from paparazi when you have 49 other states and Canada to live here in North America...ugh
