Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry
At first, the breakup seemed amicable. In 2010, Halle Berry said of her split from model Gabriel Aubry: "We're still friends, we love each other very much." But recently, things have turned ugly, as the couple engages in a vicious custody battle over their 2-year-old daughter, Nahla. Though they were never married, Aubry filed a paternity petition in December 2010. He
that Berry would leave Nahla unattended while she was on set. And Berry has come out swinging: her rep recently told Us Weekly, "Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her." Aubry hasn't made a comment about the custody battle, but on Wednesday,
reported that Aubry has abusive voicemails, text messages and emails from Berry. Said a source: "She left a crazy message on Gabe's cell just after some pictures came out of him at a Lakers game with a girl last year... She is mega, mega p***ed in the message, calling him, and the girl, all kinds of names—it's certainly something Halle wouldn't want heard." Meanwhile,
Berry reportedly claims
that her daughter, Nahla "cries hysterically" when she has to see her father, and that Aubry put Nahla "in immediate harm's way" last summer.
