Since it’s already the season of celebrities popping out babies, we probably shouldn’t be too surprised that it’s also the season of celebrity baby drama. According to TMZ, apparently Halle Berry‘s ex Gabriel Aubry filed a paternity petition on December 30 of last year for joint physical and legal custody and support. The petition will allow a judge to officially name Aubry as Nahla’s father, a step that could potentially suggest a custody battle is in his future. We hope it doesn’t come to that, though we completely understand wanting to be with a kid that cute 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
While rumors of Aubry and Berry’s custody troubles reared their ugly heads last May, according to TMZ’s source the couple have so far managed to work out their differences. That original dispute allegedly stemmed from both parents’ chaotic schedules, something that isn’t likely to calm down if Berry is cast as Aretha Franklin, a possibility which has Halle saying, “I would absolutely entertain the idea, it would be an honor for anyone to play her.” Another source claims that currently Halle and Gabriel are a “2″ out of 10, 10 being Mel Gibson vs. Oksana Grigorieva (or so we assume). Here’s hoping they never get above a 3 over that adorable little peanut.
