Gabriel Aubry Allegedly Flips Out When Daughter Nahla Referred To As “Black”

In case you were wondering how their custody dispute could possibly get worse, now you know! We had heard that Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry‘s custody battle involves racial slurs and dates with Kim Kardashian. Now sources claim that Gabriel Aubry “went nuts” when Nahla was called “black,” even going so far as to suggest asking magazines for a “retraction” if they describe his daughter as such. Our first thought is, why would an alleged racist have a kid with one of the most famous African-American women in America? Our second thought is, you can never tell when someone is going to act the fool, can you?

We aren’t about to get out a pie-chart to debate a toddler’s ethnic background. However, given that biracial Berry doesn’t shy away from her African-American heritage, we doubt she would take kindly to Gabriel’s race-based hysteria. Aubry has come out against previous accusations, claiming he is “disappointed in Halle’s decision to falsely malign him publicly,” but so far has said nothing about the new claims. Reports also allege that the custody battle started after Aubry’s refusal to move to NYC forced Halle to drop out of New Year’s Eve to be close to her daughter. We sincerely hope this new horribleness is nothing but a filthy rumor; there’s nothing a baby needs less than a racist dad. Well, that and her parents to have a super-ugly divorce in public. So really, two things.

Halle Berry’s Ex Files Paternity Petition Over Daughter Nahla


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.
