Halle Berry Loses Court Battle

Halle BerryHalle Berry has lost her bid to take her daughter to live in France.

The 46-year-old actress - who is engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez - and Gabriel Aubry, father of her four-year-old daughter Nahla, appeared in court in Los Angeles on Friday where a judge denied Halle's attempts to move to Europe, according to gossip website TMZ.

Gabriel, a Canadian model who lives and works in Los Angeles, had petitioned the court to stop Halle's plans as it would give him limited access to his daughter, while the Cloud Atlas actress argued the privacy laws are stronger in France and would keep Nahla safe from the paparazzi.

Halle - who split with Gabriel in 2010 - and Olivier, had put their wedding plans on hold while the actress focused on her custody battle but she revealed they hoped to have a child together soon. "We pray to God, so sweet. She says, 'God, please bring me a bunk bed and a baby sister.' And I say, 'I can do one of those things, I know for sure. The other one, we've got to keep praying on.' What do you say to her when she wants that and can't understand why God's taken so long?" she said.

Halle Berry Puts Marriage on Hold

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Weddings

Halle Berry and Olivier MartinezHalle Berry has put her wedding plans on hold while she relocates.

The Cloud Atlas star is set to marry Olivier Martinez, but before she does is planning to move away from her native US to France for the sake of her four-year-old daughter, Nahla.

When asked about her wedding, she told InStyle, "I'm not sure where I am going to be living in the next few months, so I have to get that settled first. It's the appeal of privacy and a greater sense of safety for Nahla. Because we are followed all the time, she is starting to feel like she is somehow special, and of course she is, but I want her to understand that she's special because of who she is, not because she was born into this celebrity blender."

Halle, 46, says the moving process has taken longer than usual because of her bitter custody battle for Nahla against the child's father, Gabriel Aubry. "There is turbulence, but this too shall pass," she added.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Television, Dating

Eric Stonestreet and Charlize TheronEric Stonestreet has joked rumors he is dating Charlize Theron is hurting his relationship with Halle Berry.

The Modern Family star has been linked to the Snow White and the Huntsman actress recently, but he has laughed them off, claiming Halle - who is engaged to French hunk Olivier Martinez - is particularly upset by them.

"She was so cold to me this morning when she saw these rumors. It was just quiet - knife and fork on the plate. Halle and I weren't speaking at all. And I'm like, 'Halle, listen! It's just a rumor. It's not real!'" he joked to E! News.

Eric - who broke up with his girlfriend of three years Katherine Tokarz earlier this month - was said to be head-over-heels with Charlize, whom he met through a mutual friend earlier this year.


Kate Middleton Photos Could Affect Halle Berry

Halle Berry and her daughterGabriel Aubrey's lawyer will almost certainly use the publication of the Kate Middleton topless photographs in his case to keep his and Halle Berry's daughter in America.

The actress is hoping to move to France with Nahla, four, with her actor fiance Olivier Martinez; however her case could be harmed if her model ex uses the new press issue in his argument, according to website TMZ.com. Halle's legal representative has been trying to convince the judge in her custody battle that their child is better off living in France with her mother because the paparazzi are more respectful of celebrities.

Gabriel was already using the paparazzi chasing Princess Diana to her death in 1997 as a reason she would not benefit from the relocation. Now Gabriel's lawyers could mention the images taken of the Duchess of Cambridge, which were achieved by an intrusive photographer who apparently used a telephoto lens to capture intimate shots of her on a secluded balcony.

Halle Berry Ordered to Pay Child Support

Halle Berry and NahlaHalle Berry has been ordered to pay $20,000 a month in child support.

Lawyers for the New Year's Eve star and her former partner Gabriel Aubry went to court on Monday, where a family law judge ordered the actress to hand over the sum for the care of their four-year-old daughter Nahla, gossip website TMZ reports. Gabriel, 36, had gone to court last month to request the sum but the case was adjourned because paperwork wasn't filled out properly.

The former couple - who split in April 2010 - are yet to resolve another dispute over Nahla, as the model is unhappy with Halle's plan to move to France with the youngster and her fiance Olivier Martinez. The 45-year-old Dark Tide star has previously spoken about relocating to France, in favour of the country's laws which will protect her offspring from prying eyes. "Laws that protect children, protect right to privacy. All I want is for my family and myself to have a normal life. When I'm not at work, that's very important to me," she said.

A court has yet to rule on Halle's desire to move.


Moving to France Isn’t Best for Halle Berry’s Daughter

Halle BerryHalle Berry's proposed move to France would damage the relationship between her four-year-old daughter, Nahla, and the girl's father, Gabriel Aubry, according to a child custody evaluation.

Halle, 45, wants to relocate to France with their child and her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, because of their better child privacy laws. However, Gabriel is fighting against the decision and a custody trial is scheduled to begin in the next few weeks.

"The report concluded that Gabriel's relationship with Nahla would clearly change drastically if she moves to France. Gabriel plays a very active role in Nahla's life and has been a doting and loving father and that would obviously change if she moved to France. The report notes that Gabriel takes Nahla to and from her preschool and spends as much time as possible with her under terms of the current custody agreement. The bottom line is that the proposed move to France would essentially cut Gabriel out of Nahla's life and the child psychologist determined that wasn't in the little girl's best interest. However, this is just a report, it will be up to a judge to ultimately decide if Halle will be allowed to move to France with Nahla," a source said.

Gabriel Aubry Wants More Money from Halle

Gabriel Aubry and daughter NahlaGabriel Aubry wants to "substantially increase" the monthly payments he receives from Halle Berry.

The model is currently embroiled in a bitter battle with the actress over the custody of their four-year-old daughter Nahla and was in court today with his ex-girlfriend to ask for a raise in the amount of money she pays to him, according to RadarOnline. However, he did not get the chance to have his case heard as the judge granted a continuance.

Halle wants to move to France with Nahla and her fiance Olivier Martinez because of concerns about the paparazzi and the child's safety, but her ex is trying to stop her from re-locating because he believes he won't get to see his daughter. It was previously revealed Gabriel - who split from Halle in 2010 after five years together - was worried Oliver is planning to adopt Nahla.

"Gabriel fears that Halle's ultimate plan is to get him out of his daughter's life, permanently. He believes the plan is for Halle to move to France with Nahla and then have Olivier adopt her as his own. She wants a 'fresh start' apparently. Gabe will fight tooth and nail to retain custody of Nahla. He loves that little girl and is determined to always be a part of her life and always be her father. Just because Halle is through with him doesn't mean she can shut him out of her daughter's life too. Gabe may not have Halle's money or power but he will not just lie down and take it," a source said.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Engagements, Style

Olivier Martinez and Halle BerryOlivier Martinez has confirmed his engagement to Halle Berry.

The 46-year-old French actor - who met Halle on the set of Dark Tide in 2010 - has finally gone public with their plans to marry.

Asked about the engagement, he said, " Yes, of course it's true."

Speaking ahead of the opening of his new restaurant, Villa Azur, in Miami on Saturday, he also set the record straight about who designed the New Year's Eve actress' emerald and yellow gold ring. Jewelry designer Gurhan claimed to be the brains behind the ring in a statement to People, but Olivier says it was actually created by Parisian jeweler Robert Mazlo - who he says has been making jewelry for, "kings and queens for many centuries."

"There is a jeweler taking credit for doing the ring and it's a lie! They have nothing to do with this," he explained, talking to the Miami Herald newspaper.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues

Halle BerryHalle Berry's stalker has been sentenced to 386 days in prison.

Richard Franco - who was arrested last July after the actress' private security caught him trespassing on her home in the Hollywood Hills - struck a deal with prosecutors by pleading no contest to felony stalking in exchange for dropping a felony burglary charge.

Franco has already served 193 days in jail, so will only have to stay behind bars for another 193 days. According to gossip website TMZ.com, Franco was also sentenced to five years probation after he completes his sentence as well as one year of psychological therapy sessions.

The judge also extended Halle's three-year restraining order against Franco, which requires him to stay at least 200 yards away from her and her three-year-old daughter Nahla for the next 10 years.

Franco was caught on the property three times in three days, and on one occasion broke into her guest house. He was also caught spying on Halle through a kitchen door, which caused her to call police.
