Gabriel Aubry is fighting Halle Berry's proposed move to Paris to protect their daughter Nahla from the paparazzi.
If she really wants to move, he argues, then take her to Malibu. It's closer and will grant the actress the privacy she so desperately seeks.
Here's what a source said:
"Gabriel's lawyers will discuss the idea of Halle moving to Malibu permanently at the custody trial. She already has a house there and she never seems to have any problems with the paps photographing her in a bikini with Nahla. There is a gated community in Malibu that Halle could buy a house at if she wanted an extra layer of security. Gabe wants Nahla to have as normal a childhood as possible and thinks Nahla could even go to public school in Malibu. Cindy Crawford's kids are in public school there, and no one ever bothers them. Again, if Halle truly feared for her safety she could hire a bodyguard to fend off any potential problems. Moving to another country to get away from them doesn't make sense to Gabriel. Yes, Halle is followed at times, but she isn't Princess Diana!"
Although those remarks seem a bit exaggerated, we think the point is that Gabriel will do anything possible to keep his little girl close which is admirable of him.
In the next few weeks the trial to decide if Halle should be allowed to leave with Nahla for Paris will take place, and things are going to get worse for these two former love birds before things get better.
We hope they can come to some sort of agreement that makes everyone happy, but there's a lot of obvious bitterness between these two - so we won't hold our breath!!!
Seriously though, this bitter dispute is effecting their beloved daughter the most, so please for her sake - try and get along!!!
