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.

Great news - revives my faith in the LA Court System. Now the Father and Daughter can continue to have a relationship. Now Halle will step up the mind control of her Daughter - she is a hateful woman and will not stop until she breaks the F/D ralationshp. She is evil.

What a HORRIBLE woman! I am THRILLED for Gabriel & ESPECIALLY Nahla! This was ONLY about getting her way & making Olivier Nahla's daddy - until the time comes when these 2 break up TOO! Here's to MORE losses at the movie theatres!

The judge's ruling is probably a "blessing in disguise" because now she's not obligated to marry Olivier Martinez which may turn out to be another somewhat costly mistake. With that settled, now she can concentrate on doing whatever it takes to reduces the $20,000 a month Gabriel Aubry is receiving. Let's face it, this "TRIFLING EXCUSE FOR A MAN" has "TWO ARMS AND LEGS THAT WORK" which makes him perfectly able to TAKE CARE OF HIMSELF!!! If he were African American, I seriously doubt he would be receiving "ANY MONEY" especially since "HE'S NOT THE PRIMARY CUSTODIAL PARENT"!!! It doesn't take a "ROCKET SCIENTIST" to figure out he's primarily interest in the "MONEY" and in time his daughter will realize this reality, too!!! I wish Ms. Berry and her daughter, Nahla only the best!!! As for Gabriel Aubry, don't worry about him. HIS DAY IS COMING AND PERHAPS MUCH SOONER THAN HE THINKS!!! KARMA IS A REAL "MUTHA"!!!

I don't care why you want to move, where you live or where you want to move to, who you decided to swap bodily fluids with to result in a child but once you let that happen you can't just ditch them like they matter less. You do not cancel out the other parent like that.

My partner is cut out of his daughter's life by his ex and he has very few rights to demand otherwise. It is cruel, selfish and unnecessarily complicated for the child. Get over yourself Halle. You had a kid with him, you deal with him and stay near for the sake of your daughter, the end.

Oh gosh, that "Olivier should be her only father, not that horrible man I actually had her with, so we'll live in France and forget he exists" thing didn't work, huh?

The judge knows crazy and vindictive when he sees it.

There are many Hollwood celeb's who live in this country who have kids, and find ways to deal with the media garbage, so she will have to as well! Not sure is one parent is worse than the other, but appears Berry was trying her best to keep this father away from his daughter, and the the judge saw thru it!

I am so happy to hear this great news. I can not stand Halle Berry whom I use to LOVE her but lost all respect for her after she showed her true colors. And for those saying he is ruining her life and blah blah blah. KARMA! She is a grown adult and she knew who she was getting involved with and HAVE A BABY WITH so that is not an argument. Her daughter deserves a father and a mother and she should Have Gabriel watch the hold if she is on location and working. The child should spend the least amount of time possible with non family members. She knew and choose to have a baby with a poor man with no real job and was FiNE sleeping switch and then creating a child with him. She had plenty of time, money, and experience to pick a perfect man to mate with but did not. She is just as screwed up as the men she dates and then turns around pointing fingers at calling them horrible people. She is nasty mean and really needs to examine the guy she is dating and talking about marrying. He is a known cheater and probably is after her money and in her ear making this situation worse. Thank you judge for doing the right thing.

There are so many idiots on this post. First of all, there is no rule that fathers HAVE to be in their children's lives. 99% of the time if a guy doesn't want the kid after he knocks someone up, he flees WITH NO CONSEQUENCES. Yet, because Gabriel is pretending to care about his daughter, he's a hero? screw that. I think he should be removed from her life so that they can all move on. Halle should be able to move if she wants. Let him knock up someone else or adopt if he is so obsessed with kids.

If she so worried about the safety of her child and the paparazzi taking pictures, she could move to Montana. I got a feeling the paps wouldn't follow her up there.

I think Halle just wants to be in France with her new boyfriend. She is using the safety issue as an excuse. She has tons of money so security shouldn't be an issue anywhere. Her track record with men hasn't always been so good. Maybe being in France is a mistake the whole way around

Ha, ha you hit and run killer. You should be in prison. Move to Riverside if LA is too much for you. Berry is just a liar and she thought she could buy this judge too. NO! Halle, NO! You can't buy everyone and get away with murder you no good pig.
