Halle Berry Is “Irresponsible” Say Ex
Their breakup was as amicable as you could get, in Hollywood at least. But now the gloves are off for Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry’s custody battle over daughter Nahla.
Yesterday Halle spread suspicions about her ex’s behaviour. “Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time, and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her,” her spokesperson said.
She also announced she was pulling out of filming her latest role New Year’s Even to focus on the custody battle. Today Katherine Heigl was announced as her replacement.
Today Gabriel angrily fought back, calling her comment irresponsible.
“While Gabriel is disappointed in Halle’s decision to falsely malign him publicly and for her own purposes, he refuses to be pulled into her dispute over a canceled film production,” his rep told Access Hollywood. “Gabriel also refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter.
“The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla. Gabriel fully believes that a consistent and balanced living situation and two loving parents are crucial for their child even if Ms. Berry feels otherwise,” his rep continued.
“He will always defend his rights as a father and will always consider Nahla’s best interest. Halle’s continuing allegations in the press are untrue and irresponsible.”
This is one custody battle that sadly looks like it will be dragged out and hurtful to everyone involved.
