Gabriel Aubry Set To Battle

While their reps say everything is hunky-dory between co-parenting exes Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, sources close to the couple say nothing could be further from the truth.

Halle Berry

Gabriel Aubry recently filed for legal custody of his two-year-old daughter with Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry, and reps for both deny that there is any ugliness that brought on such an action. So why did it happen now, after the pair had been separated for months and were supposedly handling visitation just fine without the courts getting involved?

Sources say it's because things are not as hunky-dory as Halle's reps would have us believe.

An insider -- obviously a friend of Aubry's -- said the situation has deteriorated so badly that the model felt forced to go the legal route.

"Basically whenever Gabriel doesn't do exactly what Halle tells him to do, or if he does something she doesn't approve of or like, she goes crazy on him, screaming and shouting," the source told RadarOnline.

"Contrary to public perception Halle has a particularly nasty temper, and she can be really controlling and vindictive. I've been with him when he's gotten these insane calls from Halle -- with her screaming at him and going crazy, when the poor guy hasn't done anything!"

Without naming names, the source basically said that Berry lost her marbles when Aubry was spotted out on the town with Kim Kardashian. "Halle was absolutely furious and had a complete melt-down. She basically gave him an ultimatum -- to choose between dating other women and carrying on being on her good side."

"She was particularly angry that he had been so public, even going to a Lakers game one time, and she totally berated him, basically telling him that if he has to date, just date a nobody waitress that nobody will care about."

Believe it or don't, but the fact that Aubry finally decided to get legal speaks volumes. We know this much is true, though: Halle Berry looked bangin' at the Golden Globes.

My friend Teresa also had a long love affair and a child with a man ten years her junior and it didn't work out but they share the custody of a beautiful daughter. The daughter loves her Father who hasn't always provided consistent support.My question is did this legal issue arise because the commitment of Halle Berry sharing joint custody of her daughter interfere with her movie deal in NYC that she lost ? Who takes care of her daughter while she films a movie ? Most of us can see the real reasons why this is happening and it is tragic for their daughter. Halle Berry choose Gabriel to be the Father of her child and this has consequences . Don't sacrifice your daughter's emotional health and access to her Father for a demanding movie career.It is narcism at it's highest form !

Oh please....Halle was not screaming about Kim K....why? because she and Gabriel had already agreed that neither of them would expose Nahla to their dates. Olivier initially stayed at Halle's Malibu house so as to keep him and Nahla apart. The fix up with Kim never got beyond one date...puleeze...why would Halle get upset? Lets be just bit real with all of this hyperbole. People Gabriel didn't leave Halle, she left him. He like every other man in her life was unable to provide her an equal partner. Remember he's nearly ten years younger and most women know men mature intellectually later than women...I think they had little in common on the long term. I think he is a wonderful guy and probably a loving father. But no mother is going to willing allow her 3 year old toddler travel across the country and stay with her father...who is a Canadian citizen and who could skip over the border and create a custody fight in his own home country of Canada. Most of these lobs by Halle is her trying to assure that small child stays in her custody. She may be willing to revisit this situation when the child is older. And people remember it was SHE who carried this child for nine months...that is a different attachment than daddy dearest who fines it wasy to love a beautiful little girl, but did none of the heavy lifting.
