Halle Berry can't move daughter Nahla to France, report says
Halle Berry reportedly had a bad day in court in her ongoing custody battle with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
Berry was fighting for the right to move the pair's 4-year-old daughter Nahla to Paris, France, where they would live with the actress' fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez.
An OnTheRedCarpet.com correspondent at the courtroom reported that a source told them that the ruling is complicated, but Berry will not be permitted to move with Nahla to Paris. People magazine also reported that Berry was denied her request. Because it is a paternity case, the information and courtroom are sealed.
The 45-year-old actress had argued that the Los Angeles paparazzi made life in Los Angeles difficult for her and her daughter and claimed that France's stronger paparazzi laws would make life safer for the pair. Berry has said in the past that she had no intention of taking Nahla away from Aubry.
"Our issues were never about fighting for her," Berry told Extra in April 2011. "We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We needed a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I'm so happy we've arrived at that place."
Berry and Aubry dated for four years before splitting up in April 2010. Their relationship became contentious as they battled over custody issues, including Berry's busy filming schedule and her accusations that her daughter was "traumatized" after a visit with Aubry.
In January 2012, Berry's nanny, Alliance Kamdem, was denied a restraining order request against Aubry after he allegedly pushed her while she was carrying Nahla.
The Academy Award-winning actress reportedly became engaged to Olivier Martinez in January. He confirmed the engagement to reporters in March. Berry and Martinez met on the set of the movie "Dark Tide" around the summer of 2010.
Berry has been married twice before. She and baseball player David Justice were married for more than four years in the 1990s. She was married to singer Eric Benet from 2001 until 2005.
Martinez, 46, known for his role in films such as "Unfaithful" and "Taking Lives," dated singer Kylie Minogue for four years before they broke up in 2007.
