And the war rages on and gets more brutal with each passing story. So much for no more trash talk!
Halle Berry is in the middle of a bitter and nasty custody battle with her ex, Gabriel Aubry. Since this whole thing began, each side has made awful accusations about the other. The latest developments have sprung up from Halle's camp, claiming that Gabriel's relationship with their 2-year-old daughter is "unhealthy." Now, a source close to Gabriel has come forward to defend him, but also throw Halle under the bus a bit more.
Because that always helps.
According to this insider, Halle holds a lot of the blame for the failure of their relationship as she constantly was trying to control Gabriel and was prone to arguing with him about anything and everything. In regards to the accusation that Gabriel called her the "N" word, the source insists that he would never do that, though they have heard him say some not so friendly things to her in the past. He explains:
"It's just not something that would come out of Gabriel's mouth," the source said. "I'll confess that I've heard him call her "a f***ing b**ch" before — when he's been provoked, but I am talking serious provocation. And it's very, very rare… usually when she would call him and go crazy at him he would go silent and let her rant and rave then just ask her 'are you finished now?'. I think that used to wind her up more than if he lost his cool with her, which, admittedly I know he did on a couple of occasions. But there's no way he was ever abusive to her. It's completely the other way around if anything!"
Doesn't sound like either one of them deserves a pat on the back, if you ask us. Sounds like they both are hot-heated.
Regardless, the insider's insistent on proving Gabriel's innocence and provided sources with a scathing email to prove just how mean Halle was to him. In the alleged message, she wrote to him, "You were only good for one thing… Thanks for the donation."
Woo! That's a little below the belt - in more ways than one!
Along with this, the insider told sources that people should call into question why exactly all this slander is surfacing right now. The source says:
"Halle's timing in these 'revelations' speaks volumes. It's amazing how she's only now chosen to come forward about all this 'abuse' and Gabriel's 'bad parenting', basically after he went to court to legally establish his parental rights…All Gabriel wanted was to ensure his legal entitled access to his daughter, and to not have to be at the mercy of Halle's moods as to when and how he could see Nahla. Unlike Halle Berry Gabriel is not concerned with the public believing he is the 'wronged one' and with controlling his image - he is concerned with his daughter and her welfare. Perhaps if Halle spent more time truly worrying about that and less time worrying about how she's being portrayed in the press the situation would be better and easier for all concerned."
That could be said of Gabriel as well. Neither side is innocent in this. They've both been acting horribly ever since this custody hearing began.
In the end, that poor little girl is the one who is going to lose out if her parents can't grow and make things work for her benefit. Shame.
