Halle Berry: Broadway Plans Canceled 'Due to Custody Issues'

Halle Berry and her boyfriend Olivier Martinez make their way to their car after having lunch together on Friday (April 15) in Los Angeles.

The 44-year-old actress was “all but confirmed” to head to Broadway this Fall to star in the show The Mountaintop, but the plans have been scrapped.

Halle will no longer be starring the production due to custody issues, the producers of the show said in a statement.

The Mountaintop will still open on Broadway this Fall with Samuel L. Jackson starring as Martin Luther King, Jr.

God, when will this ***** just stop making it sound like her careers drawn to a halt because of Aubrey?? ‘oh waaaa i cant do this film bcause I darent leave this grown man care for his own child’ ‘waaaa I cant go here because hes being unreasonable’ ‘waaaaa I cant do braodway because of custody’ BLAH BLAH BLAH there was no need to say the withdraw was because of the child, but no, there it is, like shes blaming Aubrey for holding her back. PLEASE, people should be thankful that her ‘acting’ wont be forced on them. ***** needs to move on cos every song sounds the same. Needs to learn to keep her private life private. But wheres the fun in that?? this way she gets the paps to folow her, she gets column inches in the tabs cos theres no way anyone cares otherwise. Her career is a dud,, shes not had a hit in years and she didnt deserve her oscar. she should just disappear

Poor Halle!! She’s really trying to milk this “custody” thing for all it’s worth!! She’s probably going to try and sue Gabe claiming he’s forcing her to lose jobs!

@lexy hates bilson: why are YOU such an IDIOT and STUPID and ILLITERATE!

LEARN HOW TO READ BETTER IDIOT!

Berry WASN’T the one to “milk” this custody but if YOU knew how to read better;you would have read that the PRODUCERS of the show NOT Berry came out that she couldn’t fly to the West Coast!

Gawd YOU Lexy hates bilson are such an IDIOT;STUPID;ARROGANT;an IMBECILE.

For your information Halle Berry has a $ 50 MILLION contract with Revlon alone

As for whether he’ll be more successful in keeping Nahla from going to Broadway with Halle — it’s doubtful. The argument — “You knew what you were signing up for” — is awfully compelling.
This what TMZ said after the last court case, so why did the judge not let her go this time. A truce, I doubt very much.

She definitely looks pregnant. Hopefully this guy isn’t dumb enough to fall for that.

FRED

No disrespect but what has Halle’s 50 million contract to do with this custody case or LEXY thinking she might sue, lots of people with billions still sue. People sue for lots of reason even if they have a lot of money.
And if Revlon are paying her that much money, , would it not be better to pay less and sell their products cheaper so a lot more girls could afford them.

Its not that serious. She’s being ridiculous. How many projects has she cancelled over this?

Where is Gabriel’s schedule/career? What project is he working on? I know he is trying very hard to be obstacle to Halle’s but other than that I don’t know what he is doing.

When did it become a taboo for woman to have a career and a child? I don’t understand the fugly haters on this site. But the rest of career minded woman are working and taking their children with them. This guy wants to sit on his ass and receive a check from Halle for being a dad. When I have Gabriel’s statement that he will financially support his child I will start respecting him.

Halle looks stunning regardless and I love the dress. Halle keep on killing the haters with them cleavage :)

@Sihaam:

Gabriel has done 3 more campaigns this year alone. Google him.
And noticed he is not out eating outside restaurants to be photographed!

Why can she not take the child to NY with her and hire a Nanny….she is trying to control Gabriel and make herself a victum…if the problem is that he cannot or does not want to go to NY with her than hire a Nanny or have her mom go with her..

If he is trying to keep Nayla in LA?.. well that is not right..but we don’t have the details so we don’t know really what is going on…

@COACH
nobody photo Gabby, you cant blame her if the paps photograph her. What is she suppose to do, stay indoors all the time.

This is about money. I have time for Hallie because she a protective mother. You have notice there is NOT ONE photo of her daughter with her boyfriend? Unlike Suri she not out all hours of the night with heels on. she does her best to keep the paps aways but there are times when its beyond her control and you cant hate her for something beyond her control. The mags want Hallie NOT Gabby FACT

Nahla has 2 parents. Gabriel has as much right to Nahla as Halle. He shouldn’t have to drop everything in his life to care for his daughter in NY, when he can do it in LA.

Halle wants Nahla with her all the time (as would any mother), but if her work obligations take her away from LA, then there is nothing wrong with Nahla staying with her father. Halle doesn’t want that, so she loses out on this role. That was her decision. She wasn’t forced into it.

@Sihaam:
What the hell has Berry done this year?? A tiny bit part in a huge ensemble piece and….???whats she done in the last few years? shes not had a hit in years, and not only have her movies been duds, theyve been SUPER duds. she cannot headline a movie alone and guarantee money for a studiio. shes a has been that turns up to the openin of an envelope but doesnt seem to do anythign ither than complain

lexy hates bilson @ 04/16/2011 at 6:44 pm

Wow Fred…you’re really worked up over this…BTW why would Halle need to fly to the West Coast? Doesn’t she live their already?? And how would the PRODUCERS know about Halle’s custody bullsh!t if she didn’t TELL THEM?? And she’d sue for damagaes – duh!!! Tom Cruise and David Beckham don’t NEED money but they’ve sued tabloids!!
-
Halle needs to get a grip and get over herself and this victim role!! Look at Reese Witherspoon – you don’t see her and Ryan with all this drama over the kids – especially in the media!!

TOO BAD FOR HER FATHER’S HAVE THEIR RIGHTS! WOMEN ALWAYS THINK THE CHILDREN BELONG TO THEM ONLY BUT NOT ANYMORE. MEN ARE DEMANDING THEIR FAIR, EQUAL SHARE OF CUSTODY AND THEY ARE RIGHT TO DO SO.

Halle you need to take a que from Catherine Zeta Jones and check in and your get your bi-polar under control.

These comments are really cynical and unnecessary. Halle Berry is a good mom and Nahla really is her number 1 priority. You guys act like you know her personally. You know what you READ. Maybe Gabriel Aubry is the problem. He’s just as much to blame as Halle is. If you can all sh** on her, why not sh** on him? Oh yeah, that’s not fair is it? Because he’s the dad.

Grow up. And better yet find something else better to get worked up on. Like Brooke Mueller and Charlie Sheen. Those are 2 people putting THEMSELVES before their kid. They deserve the hate. Halle? not so much.

People are so busy judging Halle and so eager to give Aubry a past because of their own jealosy and hatred. It’s a rare person on this site that questions Aubry’s “unknown” motives, actions and behavior. I truly believe that he has aliened and ended relationships with people who know him simply because they have questioned his behavior toward Halle since she movedon. This is the main reason his former associates they haven given depostions to the court. What do they stand to gain by committing perjury? I don’t for one second believe Halle kept him from their daughter. He is angry and has become vindicive toward his child’s mother and this won’t help him in getting joint custody. Aubry did not come from as secure home enviroment as he has both maternal and paternal abandoment issues that he possibly has never dealt with. Aubry mentioned in a statement how he didn’t care about Halle losing a previous film role. Education time: Production companies don’t want to invest in an actress that could become a liability. Aubry wants Halle to choose between her career or child and and he is unwilling to work with his child’s mother concerning her work another factor that will hurt him establishing joint custody because he is proving he is less likely to keep an ageement concerning their daughter. READ MORE AND HATE LESS

Hahahahahha @ 04/16/2011 at 10:21 pm

NO ONE WOULD HAVE CAME TO SEE HER ON BROADWAY ANYWAY BECAUSE SHE CANNOT ACT. SHE MAY WANT TO GET A NEW PSYCHIATRIC DOCTOR TO GIVE HER BETTER ADVISE. ALSO, GET A NEW BOOB JOB BECAUSE HER BREASTS ARE HANGING LIKE A 10LBS EXERCISE BALL WITH A NAIL AT THE BOTTOM IN A LONG WHITE TUBE SOCK…THAT HAS BEEN ALREADY STRETCHED FROM WEARING IT A LONG TIME.
