Halle Berry has lost the legal bid to move her daughter, Nahla, to France! A judge ruled against the actress on Friday.
Halle had requested permission to move her daughter Nahla to France, because France has much stricter policies on paparazzi and privacy issues. But a judge ruled that Nahla will have to remain in America.
Berry, 46, who sought permission to move to France with Nahla, 4, in her ongoing custody battle with ex Gabriel Aubry, was denied permission to uproot her life here in the states and start life abroad with fiance Olivier Martinez, TMZ reports.
“Because we are followed all the time, she is starting to feel like she is somehow special, and of course she is,” Berry told the November issue of InStyle. “But I want her to understand that she’s special because of who she is, not because she was born into this celebrity blender.”
Aubry, 36, tried to fight Berry on the move from the get-go, saying that it was meant to distance him from their daughter.
Sources close to the actress denied that this was the case, however.
“Halle was never going for full custody. That wasn’t what it was about,” a source told People magazine last year. “Whatever the outcome, she wasn’t trying for that. There were just other issues that they couldn’t resolve, and therefore the courts had to intervene.”
Aubry and Berry parted ways in 2010 after four years together and have been locked in a nasty custody battle ever since.
As much as it sucks, I don’t think Halle SHOULD be allowed to take her daughter out of the country. Not away from her father. I think the father has some rights, too. I really wondered how much of Halle wanted to get to France for their paparazzi laws, and how much of her wanted to get over there because that’s where her fiance lives. A bit sketchy if ya ask me.
