Halle Berry‘s rep has confirmed that the actress is preparing to go to court to fight for custody over her daughter Nahla, 2.
“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.”
Apparently, Halle has been trying to solve the custody issue without going to court. Her rep added:
“She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention.”
“Halle has always made the needs and safety of her daughter her first priority and, both while Halle and Gabriel were a couple and since their break-up, Halle has only acted in her daughter’s best interest.”
Halle and Gabriel split back in April. He filed papers December 30, seeking to be formally recognized as Nahla’s father and to establish that he’ll share custody.
Yikes! I hope they can work this out peacefully for Nahla’s sake.
