So much for that "amicable" split. Things have turned ugly in the Halle Berry vs. Gabriel Aubry custody case.
Halle is determined to bad mouth Gabriel, and in turn he called her an "irresponsible" parent for talking to the press about their situation.
In a statement released to ‘Access Hollywood’, his rep said: "Gabriel refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter. The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla.
"Gabriel fully believes that a consistent and balanced living situation and two loving parents are crucial for their child even if Ms. Berry feels otherwise. He will always defend his rights as a father and will always consider Nahla's best interest. Halle's continuing allegations in the press are untrue and irresponsible."
Friends are now picking sides and one of them is playing the 'verbally abusive' card telling People magazine that once they broke up Gabriel became was verbally threatening towards Halle.
"He is a vindictive guy," says Gabriel's former friend and business partner Stephane Bibeau, adding that he would use racial slurs against her. "That's just unacceptable," a source close to the Halle added.
You lost? Let’s rewind. This whole mess started after Halle released a public statement about how she was pulling out of the upcoming movie 'New Years Eve' in order to focus on the custody battle. She said she was seeking “swift judicial intervention" because she was so concerned for their 2 year-old daughter Nahla’s welfare.
I'm not going to pick sides because quite frankly, no one knows what went on behind closed doors and the real reason this whole mess started in the first place, but airing your dirty laundry is never a good idea.
Nahla is going to grow up and read all about this, and no one wants to hear about their Mom or Dad being bashed publicly. Think about your kid before you release these kinds of statements!
