I really thought that this whole breakup between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry was going to be a quiet, albeit sad, affair. It turns out, there are all kinds of rumors swirling around and nobody, except for Halle and Gabriel, can seem to figure out what the truth really is. The first rumor that went around was the fact that the split was due to their age difference. That was a rumor I reported on, and that I personally thought was a load of bull.
Now there are rumors out that Gabriel is actually pretty upset with Halle, and that he’s actually going to challenge Halle for custody of their little daughter, Nahla. Apparently, Gabriel has finally had it with the attention that Halle receives being in the spotlight all the time. And he’s had enough of it that he wants to take their daughter away to Canada, somewhere where she will be out of the spotlight and allowed to grow up happy and healthy, and like a normal kid. And, add to that the fact that Gabriel believes that Halle is fabricating stories about him, and putting those stories in her spotlight too, and he’s had it! This comes from Radar Online,
“Halle Berry’s baby daddy, Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, is unhappy at the media furor that is surrounding his beautiful daughter, Nahla, following her parents’ high profile breakup.
In fact, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that Aubry is so unhappy that he is even considering lawyering up and launching a custody battle, with the sole aim of taking his precious 2-year-old to Canada to live away from the Hollywood spotlight.
As RadarOnline.com was the first to report, Halle and Gabriel split a few months back and have, so far, managed to keep things reasonably amicable. The two hashed out a property and custody agreement with Gabriel taking ownership of their house in Canada and sharing custody of their daughter 50/50. But, Aubrey has been concerned with the media attention that has been stirred since the news of their breakup became public,and is worried how it will affect their daughter and her future wellbeing.
In addition, RadarOnline.com has learned that he is also unhappy with the stories he believes are being generated from Halle’s camp, where he has been painted as a man unable to support his child, and as someone that was unable to “pull their weight” in the relationship – something, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com, is far from the truth.
“Gabriel has always been there 100% for his daughter, he would do absolutely anything for her. He may not earn what Halle does but he still makes a great living as a model, pulling in around $700,000 a year.”
“Until the news of their split broke things were OK between him and Halle, but now he believes Halle’s team are putting all these stories out there that are just not true. Gabriel is not happy at how he is being portrayed, as some kind of dead beat dad that was living off of Halle and her celebrity. It couldn’t be any further from the truth.”
“Gabriel is currently weighing up his options, and is seriously considering challenging the custody agreement that he has with Halle, splitting the care giving of Nahla 50/50. Gabriel is concerned about the craziness surrounding their breakup and he’s concerned about the effect it is having on Nahla. He’s also concerned that he’s being bad mouthed by Halle’s people, when he’s done nothing to deserve that. If things don’t calm down soon, Gabriel is going to really consider his options, and one of those is to fight to take Nahla to Canada to live with him as the primary care giver.”
“He loves that little girl more than anything, and he will fight tooth and nail to give her a decent, balanced, normal life away from the craziness of Hollywood.”
If this particular rumor is true, I think it’s absolutely ridiculous. What kind of balanced and decent life is anybody going to have when you rip them away from their mother? And not for a very good reason, I might add. This sounds a lot like Gabriel is being petty to me. And they were together for four years and the spotlight didn’t seem to bother Gabriel too much during that time. And, it’s also not like we see Nahla shoved onto magazine covers and in our faces all the time. She’s been pretty much kept away from the media. Sure there’s the odd snapshot here and there but, Halle certainly isn’t using her kid to make a buck either. That’s a lot more than I can say for many of the moms in Hollywood.
But, let’s all keep in mind that this story might not actually be true. Gabriel has actually come out and spoken about how enraged he is about all the ridiculous media rumors. He’s also made it very clear that although they have broken up, he loves Halle very much and thinks that she’s a very special person. Now, that doesn’t sound like someone who’s trying to take her kid away from her, does it? Gabriel’s statement comes from Celebrity Dirty Laundry,
“The Canadian model told how the breakup of his four and a half year relationship was amicable, and denied the nine-year age gap between him and 43-year-old Halle was a factor, as had previously been reported.
He told Access Hollywood: “While I will not comment on all of the wild inaccuracies being speculated about in the media, I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time. “She is, and will forever be one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another.”
Since the couple split, which happened a few months ago, Gabriel, 34, and Oscar winning actress Halle have been working to resolve their finances and make arrangements for their two-year-old daughter, Nahla – whom they are said to be planning to equally share custody of. Gabriel added: “We have been blessed with the most amazing daughter in the world, and her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us. Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time.”
So there ya have it. Although I have lost respect for Gabriel Aubry, and I think the real reason for the breakup is because he thinks that he still has some wild oats to sow, I will say that I think this custody rumor is something horrible that has been made up by a ‘source.’ I’m sure that until the fuel surrounding Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry dies down a little more, we’ll be hearing a lot more of these kinds of rumors.
