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 bitch 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. Bitch 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

  • sunseeker

    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.

  • Jim

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

  • sunseeker

    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.

  • DRB

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

  • Sihaam

    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 :)

  • COACH

    @Sihaam:

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

  • CJ

    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…

  • AMENSISTER

    @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

  • Me

    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.

  • Keilee

    @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

    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!!

  • STAND UP

    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.

  • jamie

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

  • lailah

    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.

  • RCG

    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.

  • Hahahahahha

    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.

    I think I can see breast implant ripples. I thought she was real? Looks like she has serious hair loss too. No ones perfect.

    Also, Halle can not act. Very weak. (I know she won an Oscar). Joke.

  • MsIrene

    @RCG:
    @RCG:

    How can you say that Aubry is not willing to work with Halle, when he followed her to South Africa to care for his daughter while she was fliming the movie with Olivier. He also recently followed her to NY to take care of his daughter while Halle was working. And, just because he didn’t come from a “secure home environment” doesn’t mean that he doesn’t want stability for his daughter Nahla. On the contrary, perhaps that is exactly what he is fighting so hard for.

    Perhaps your opinion of Gabriel Aubry is all wrong. Do you think?

  • RCG

    @MsIrene I respect your opinion however, Aubry was fine UNTIL…. For sure both love their daughter and want stability for her however, Aubry has some emotional baggage and possible resentment going on because he lost his family with Halle and their daughter. Likely now
    he is nbot interested in working with his child’s mother because she emotionally moved on from him on some levels. [Happens all the time.]
    I do believe it is good thing he wants to be in his daughter’s life but
    that still does not discount the likely fact that he has been vindictive and
    cut ties with people who have called out his wrong doing. He was happy
    to parent with Halle but he changed. Another thing Halle has much more
    to lose than Aubry does professionally and he knows this. Halle went on a “one week shoot” and he was rigid and a judge had to give Halle permission to take a child she gave birth to with her to work –”for one week” Aubry refused until a juge ruled and besides he know what Halle did for a living when he decided to have a baby with her. Is there a standard for Halle and one for other actresses? No. Aubry has a extremely less confining career and what is preveting him from putting his daughter first and being flexible. Nothing Why is he it making it about Halle’s career? What about his career? He travels also?

    @RCG:

    @RCG: Thank you for respecting my opinion. I look at the ways some of the others here cut each other down over things that are being said. You are obviously a very mature person, and I appreciate that. I respect your opinion as well, although we might not agree on everything.

    I gues deep down, I am just disappointed in the split between Halle and Gabriel and feel sorry for the little girl involved. Having been the product of a broken home, I know that it’s really the child that is going to be hurt for the parents actions. It’s not about money, at all, but about the parents just getting along. I wish they would find a way to stop with all the issues that are going on here. Sure, Gabriel is hurt and it seemed like when he tried to move on to date someone else, that became a problem, as well. Halle didn’t like who he chose to date. And I don’t particularly care about her choice now. But the bottom line is, they can both date whomever they please. Given Halle’s track record, it would be nice (in my opinion) if she just took a “chill pill” for awhile before jumping into another relationship so quickly. We all love Halle, and I like Gabriel, and so wanted him to finally be the one for Halle, and not just a sperm donar. In the end, its always the child who is scarred by bad decisions of the parents.

    Halle and olivier,you guys are a beautiful couple.
    The pictures are nice. Love halle berrys dress.

  • Tazlena

    Another Kim Basinger. As soon as the child can understand, no doubt she’ll be turning her against her own father with more lies about how “evil” he is. . What a lack of maturity she has displayed in these custody issues.. I had no idea she was this kind of person, . Unless she does a turn-about I would never go to one of her movies again.

  • sunseeker

    I am really amazed how a lot of people write a lot of rubbish and make statements that are rude and nasty about a person they know nothing about. I do not know either Halle or Gabriel, but he has rights as a father. Money has nothing to do with this, having less money does not make him a bad father. Both need to sort this custody issue and move on with their lives.
    RCG
    Aubry mentioned in a statement how he didn’t care about Halle losing a previous film role.
    Have read remarks and interviews from the date that they met, can’t remember that one . Could you send me the LINK please.

  • sunseeker

    NICOLE

    Have you read your statement, you tell the poster she is wrong for listening to rumours and then you tell us a lot of things about Halle and Gabriel that is just rumours. Make up your mind is everything rumours or the truth ? I am confused.

  • gary

    Please dont ever ask any body to goggle Gabriel Aubry.
    Gabriel Aubry is not a movie star.Why would any one goggle him.We knew about Gabriel because of Halle Berry.He is not not intresting any more now he and Halle are no longer together,

    My second point is Halle and Olivier are better suited.Similar ages and proffesion.
    I always felt Gabriel was too young,Immature.I did not trust Halles relationship with gabriel because I suspected he was not meeting her needs.He was younger,immature,extremly jealous,very insecure(would follow halle around),was not bringing in money.YOU can only support a boyfriend for so long.

    My 3rd point is a lot of americans go through custody battles.It is not a big deal.It seems to bother you people more and the media.It does not bother Halle as much as the media makes it to be.So keep your comments to your self.It would work itself out.It is just one more custody battle in America.All your opinions right now are based on Gossip.None of you actually spoke to Halle or the Judge.Wait for the facts brfore you comment.Again ,no big deal.
