But now the Oscar winning actress has voiced “serious” concerns over Aubry’s parenting skills and will take legal steps to make sure she is safe, reported People magazine.
“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,” her publicist said.
The 44-year-old has pulled out of the film New Year’s Eve, which was set to start filming this week in New York in order to clear her schedule for custody litigation.
“Halle has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention,” her representative said. Aubrey, 35, filed court papers on December 30 seeking to be formally recognised as Nahla’s father and to establish that he’ll share custody.
The couple had previously had an amicable agreement regarding custody of their daughter which has been settled out of court up to this point.
Both Berry and Aubrey have both since dated other people with the model being spotted out with reality star Kim Kardashian and the actress being in a relationship with French actor Olivier Martinez.
