Gabriel Aubry: Halle Berry's Claims Are Untrue, Irresponsible

Gabriel Aubry: Halle Berry's Claims Are Untrue, Irresponsible

Gabriel Aubry is speaking out about his custody battle with Halle Berry over their nearly 3-year-old daughter Nahla.

“While Gabriel is disappointed in Halle‘s decision to falsely malign him publicly and for her own purposes, he refuses to be pulled into her dispute over a canceled film production. Gabriel also refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter,” his rep told Access Hollywood. “The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla.”

Gabriel fully believes that a consistent and balanced living situation and two loving parents are crucial for their child even if Ms. Berry feels otherwise. He will always defend his rights as a father and will always consider Nahla‘s best interest. Halle‘s continuing allegations in the press are untrue and irresponsible,” added the statement.

On Monday, Halle‘s rep said the 44-year-old actress had “serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being” while in Gabriel‘s care and that she was prepared to go to court to “protect her.”

    If she was keeping her daughter from Gabriel why did she bring him with her to South Africa? I mean come on. Doesn’t sound like either of them neglects her.

    They did not have a formal custody agreement, so he was dependent on the goodwill of Berry as to when he could see his child. Yes, he went to Africa while she was filming, but that’s because Halle refused to let him keep the child while she was working. The man can’t be expected to give up his career to follow her around while she’s working to be able to spend time with his daughter. He has a job and a life too.
    With a legal arrangement, Halle cannot call the shots or used his daughter against him. Further, the word is Halle was upset with about who he was dating , not that she’s dating a pillar of society. It’s best in a situation like this that everything is done legally.
    Halle hardly strikes me as a person who is agreeable. Based on her past experience with men, she’s become a control freak. She used him to have a baby, now she can just deal with it. This man deserves to have a relationship with his child. She can forget about he plan to have this child all to herself.

    Halle has to give proof in court she has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being” while in Gabriel’s care.

    He could have said; I have nothing to say publicly about a private matter. I will only say this; that I am making all attempts to resolve this through a neutral mediator. No other comments will be forthcoming from me until this issue has been resolved.

  • MsIrene

    I am so very disappointed in Halle Berry. From what I’ve read, she said in Vogue Magazine that she picked the right man to father her child, that he was a great father. How could this change so quickly? There are tons of pics of Gabriel and his daughter, even while Halle was busy “spending time with Olivier.” Gabriel appears to be a gentleman in every way, and in my opinion, is more stable, settled than Halle. He just made a bad choice, perhaps because he had not researched her background well enough? I think she has some serious problems, and little Nahla will have serious problems because of her! Gabriel should get full custody of his daughter, and I am praying for that, because he appears to care more about her, and her future!

    100% Gabriel, all the way. I also hopes he finds a wonderful, honest woman who can help him raise his daughter to be decent and respectful! I pray that Nahla’s life doesn’t become like Halle’s, i.e. running from man to man and having insecurities because she was deprieved of her father!

    Halle Berry’s Baby Daddy Hurled ‘N’ Word at Her
    2/2/2011 6:50 AM PST by TMZ Staff


    Halle Berry’s baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, called Halle the ‘N’ word, and routinely demeaned her with other vulgarities … sources connected with Halle tell TMZ.

    We’re told … in addition to calling her the “N” word, he would also call her a “f**king bitch” and other expletives. And the vulgarities are not limited to face-to-face confrontations. There are vulgar text messages as well.

    As one source told TMZ, “He constantly demeaned her. It was awful.”

    Gabriel’s reps have not returned our calls.

  • MsIrene

    @Go Ask Alice:

    Sorry, I don’t believe it! Just another undermining tactic of Ms. Berry’s staff. That’s reaching pretty low! Remember, they were together almost 5 years!

  • GAA

    Yep, RACECARD time.

    Hopefully Halle’s camp, which I doubt because they are beholden and paid by her, and hopefully her mother, someone in her camp who is reasonable and not afraid of herwill tell her to stop this.
    This mess , more and more shet every day, will only hurt Nahla. She will be able to read all of this muck one day. One day, if Halle wins, as if denying your child her father who is a good father, a win, this will will bemore hurt.Theslander ,one hurt.Taking the child away from herfather,anotherhurt.
    Way to go in your quest to winas if she is going for a prize,mess up your child.

  • Maria

    @MsIrene: also, if the text was after they split up and not during their relationship this allegations of racial slurs and demeaning her is in part of in-fighting because Halle was giving Gabriel a hard time about their daughter. With that said, this is common in any arguments when cursing, demeaning, slurs are spewed. Gabriel in no way is racists or else, he wouldn’t be with Halle. This is just making something small into something big.

  • Annie

    Ugh, she might be gorgeous, but I just can’t with Halle any more. This is what? The third or fourth time she’s been crying abused woman after a break up? As I see it, the possibilities are:

    1) The men she keeps falling for really are these sex crazed, abusive, racist, gold digging losers – in which case she must have the self esteem of a pile of mud.
    2) The guys are fine and Halle has severe problems with empathising with others. It is possible she sees these men as ‘hers’ to control and saw poor Gabriel as a pretty sperm donor rather than a human being.
    3) Some sort of sick, co-dependent combination of both

    Whichever it is Halle, please, please get help.

  • MsIrene

    I agree with what you’ve said. It seems mighty strange that after being with Gabe 5 yrs, she has chosen to go this route! And what’s even more strange is that she has chosen Olivier, who is caucasian; who’s to say that he won’t use the “n” word, in a heated argument. She is just trying to build her case! I have totally lost all respect for her!

  • MsIrene

    Now, I kinda understand why Eric B. cheated on her. She is obviously such a control freak until when poor Eric had a chance to breathe, without her being around, he went haywire! Eric B. was a wonderful singer but when he married Halle, it appears that he had to put his singing career on hold, to pamper her every whim/move. He felt trapped and when he could get away from her, he did – with other women. Sad, sad, sad. I am not saying it was right for him to cheat, but when you are with a control freak, you suffocate! That’s not good for anyone! I am so glad to see that he has found love with someone else, and one who is more beautiful than Halle. His new lady is not a star, but a regular person, and for that reason, I think the marriage will last. She puts Eric in the spotlight and follows him, and not the other way around!

    Gabe was not willing to be Halle’s little puppet! Good for him!

  • Halle is Pathetic Liar

    ……Race card, then she’ll claim he’s a drug addict and beat her.

    Give her the Occar now people! What an act!
    I have lost all respect for her as a person now. She can even remain in a relationship. What does that say?

    Oh and I’d be glad to have a conversation with you in French or English anytime… NOT.

  • villedeville

    It is possible that Gabriel Aubry used an ‘N’ word, Nagger. Judging from her constant nagging to the press, she is definitely a Nagger. She probably has hearing problems or she doesn’t know how to spell that she confused Nagger to the other ‘N’ word.

  • Beyonce = Music queen

    Hpefully her new boy toy eyes are open. She can’t keep a man because she has nasty ways . she is very selfish, Gabe along with all of her exs are having the last laugh. she is not even beautiful , she is no ASha Rai which is the defination of beautiful inside and out. She along with so many horrible ghetto women help to give African American woman bad rep.

  • Maria

    This latest accusation against Gabriel call her the N-word (nigger) from her camp I don’t believe it. First of all Gabriel is French-Canadian, a foreigner, they don’t use that kind of term. ONLY AMERICAN WHITE BOY will use that term since it was derived from the South! So whoever the person in Halle’s camp to post that trash against Gabriel has been caught in a serious defemation and Gabriel can and will win if he sues for defemation. This is so getting ugly. And I am so disappointed at Halle. I can’t believe she’s like this.

  • the true Halle Berry

    Halle Berry on one occasion hit someone with her car and used the media to keep it out of the press and paid the person off. She again had a hit and run and used the media to gain pity and avoid charges. Both of her ex-husbands, who are both black by the way, have nothing good to say about her. Justice said he could no longer deal with the incessitant neediness; Benet said he went to other women because she wasn’t interested. Halle Berry is all about Halle Berry, and we are now seeing her for her true self. She may be pretty on the outside, but on the inside, she is just nuts.

    You’re criticizing what HE said? Jeez. HE is the one being responsible and SHE is the one forcing him to defend himself against her allegations.
    Why am I not surprised by Halle’s actions? She has always struck me as seriously unglued and emotionally dysfunctional. I don’t care that she may have reasons for her behavior – I can feel sorry for any abuse she has endured int he past but that doesn’t help the child. That little girl is probably better off if her father had primary custody.

  • anna

    she is patetic, miserable woman with no selfrespect, playing on racial card is sooo lame, no one is bealiving you Halle, you are the one with criminal record HIT ANR RUN, you reveald your true colors long time ago, poor kid already looks miserable, with mother like Halle is no wonder. Father must get full custody.

  • Go Ask Alice

    This weeks upcoming People Mag, Halle has the cover story and the mag took a pic of her holding Nahla.
    What a crummy thing to do to your kid.
    Halle should stop this madness.
    Let this little girl and her father continue to form a bond and a father-daughter relationship.

  • Cher

    My gut tells me that this guy is just trying to have equal time with his daughter and Halle is trying to get the public on her said. Before i never believed the rumors about her being a controlling b!@#% but now it all makes sense.


    This is truly sad. This is why children are so screwed up. Parents fighting over them at such an early age makes you wonder why do we even bother to have kids if it means you are going to go through hell and back on things that are not important, who dates who, who makes how much money, who is more successfull than who? It makes no sence. The children always suffer in the end.

    I just don’t know what to think of Halle. I really liked her back in the day but something is wrong here with her and men. They seem to get fed up with her. I wonder why?

    If all of this is true then why all the stories of how wonderful a man he is and they found happiness finally…. and how he is such a great father???? I know no one is perfect but this is really crazy.

    It is almost like the things that were said about him in all the interviews were a lie!!!!!! WTH!

  • beatrice

    Why are people rushing to judgment? Most of the statements that are the most damaging are attibuted to SOURCES. The two statements that came out that were directly charged to their publicists were somewhat mild..except for her concerns while the daughter is in his care. someone is yelling could be something as simple as she fell, or was left unsupervised in a room. Whatever it is, it really does not need to be tried in the media. If he is so successful, why does he need support? If she is so worried, why did she say such nice things about him? it sounds as if both of them can be untruthful and are hiding different things…but we all do. If someone had a microscope on all of our relationships I am sure that we would not look so great. Most people have a “reaction” to the first relationship after a breakup and sometimes say things we wish we can take back, big deal. I think it is too soon to start assigning villian and villianess roles to anyone…just two people having a bad break up…nothing new. NO one has to be crazy or sneaky. Also I take exception to all the comments being made about her wanting a “pretty” baby and getting a white man. Both David Justice and Eric Benet were attractive men, and Mr. Aubrey being white did not mean the baby was going to look any better. I actually don’t think she is all that cute.

  • Maria

    @anon: Gabriel has been quiet for a long time. He only released a statement after Halle’s Reps made an official statement , “….the 44-year-old actress had “serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being” while in Gabriel’s care and that she was prepared to go to court to “protect her.” This is a very serious allegation calling Gabriel a child abuser/molester. It can put a person if found guilty behind bars at most 25 years with a permanent record of a child abuser/molester. What man/woman will keep quiet if they are being accused of such heinous crime?

  • Maria

    @Maria: i mean This is a very serious allegations INDICATING Gabriel is a child abuser/molester… the key word is “she is prepared to go to court to PROTECT HER”. This statement is usually imposed when a filing is directed to a child abuse/molestation.

  • Go Ask Alice

    Yep Maria, that IS exactly what it sounds like and now, reports Halle says Nahla cries, screams and tantrums, nightmares about going to her dad.

    TheOscars should be 10 mins this year and cancelled . Just give Halle Berry an Oscar and cancel the rest of the show. No actress is better than she is.The girl is fierce in her acting.
    People are posting that she is Oksana -Mel Gibsons’tramp, part two.

    A battle over thischild.
    Halle is batshet crazy. I believe this guy is not the monster she is saying he is. These are serious,ugly allegations.

  • Maria

    @Go Ask Alice: Also, if Halle’s Reps stated, “Gabriel is UNFIT father therefore, Halle is concerned for her daughter’s well-being and is prepared to go to court to protect her” is more like he is irresponsible rather indication serious , ugly allegations of a possible child abuser/molester as to what her Reps officially stated. Halle has to proof in court if she is only doing this to be spiteful this could really backfire in a serious way. Possibly ruin her.

  • NOW

    this woman is crazy, she is just jealous and is bi-polar. the father must get all the proof he needs to show this. don’t let the crazy boss you around, calling him a loser and just a model, who is she, a b….itch.

  • Mia

    WATCH OUT PEOPLE …when Halle realizes that with her ugly allegations about Gabriel she didn’t get the desired effect ( TO GET THE PUBLIC’S FAVOR) she will change STRATEGY. So don’t believe in her potential NEXT NICE MOVES …she will only be trying to paint herself like a good person.

    Or maybe she will try to paint Gabriel like a monster but in a more subtle way, not getting directly involved or maybe she will try to get the public’s favor by doing things like: CHARITY to poor children or CRYING in public or who knows what.

  • Lui

    HOW IS THE FATHER UNFIT? Does he have an addiction problem? Is he abusive towards the kid? Halle Berry think she’s all powerful because she’s got money and the fame on her side, I hate people who’s head is inflated. She shouldn’t be taking the child away from the father if he’s not a threat. She’s just a pathetic rich ……

  • boredhousewife

    celebrity gossip have stated that Halle is concerned because around xmas time Nahla became hysterical when Gabriel came to pick her up, apparently Nahla was crying, kicking and screaming, hanging onto her leg so she didn’t have to go.
    Supposedly Gabriel became impatient and forced her into the car, hence Halle was upset and things have gone down hill from there.
    Now I’m a fan of Halle but I can tell you that as the parents of 5 girls, my husband and I have that situation happen to us from time to time and we are still together. Depending on their moods they will prefer 1 parent over the other and I’ve even had them behaving like Nahla did because they wanted to go with their dad somewhere but had to stay home with me instead.
    To be honest I’d be more concerned with her current choice of boyfriend, he’s the one that’s always pulling rude finger gestures and getting into fights with photographers. As a parent I’d be more worried about that!! He’s definitely not a good role model to have around kids!!

  • good4u

    Halle just needs to get the hell over herself – she didn’t make this child by herself, Gabriel has rights too. She is lucky her middle age azz got someone to look past her ego to impregnate her. Kudos to Gabriel for showing maturity and class and it is most unfortunate that Nahla ended up with such a psycho of a mother…with some luck she will grow up to be a somewhat adjusted adult…lets pray for her

  • MEYF

    Halle you are trying to manipulate the public’s opinion with your allegations against Gabriel. Your strategy is old hat, we have seen those same cards played by other women who wants their own way in this same type of case. Gabriel deserves to have a 50% opportunity to be in his daughter’s life.

    Halle your strategy is old hat. You cannot manipulate the public’s opinion, we are wary of women playing those same cards. Gabriel deserves 50% opportunity to be in his daughter’s life.
