Halle Berry is acting up again. This time the battle with ex Gabriel Aubry is over Nahla’s natural hair. TMZ reported earlier that Berry was back in court because she believes that model Gabriel Aubry bleached and used chemical straighteners in their daughter Nahla’s hair to make her appear more white, according to Just Jared. Now, the actress claims that she has the proof.
According to court records, Halle is also concerned that the chemicals could potentially damage the young child’s hair. A judge ruled last week that both Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry should leave Nahla’s hair alone. Gabriel Aubry has denied using any type of chemical in the girl’s hair, stating that the bleaching happened naturally from being out in the sun, and that her hair was straightened with a blow out technique, using a hair dryer.
But records submitted to court recently contain a statement from Microtrace lab, where they say the hairs extracted from Nahla’s hair brush have undergone chemical treatment. The lab also reported “extensive” damage to the hair.
With the slew of news article about Halle Berry in the media lately, and her ongoing public fights with Gabriel in court, fans have stamped Berry with the “crazy” label.
For the past several years, since the birth of her child, fans have noticed a continuous change in Halle’s personality from a once vibrant, happy, smiling, and beautiful actress to a bitter middle-aged actress who wears a constant look of disdain on her face, mixed with a bit of sadness at times.
Some attribute the stress of family life at her age to her emotional state. Mostly white fans are critical of Berry’s stance that Nahla is black and should not be made to look white, arguing that the child is most likely 75 percent white since Halle herself is biracial.
Some of the other grumblings about the Dorothy Dandridge actress read this way.
“Are you kidding me? What is wrong with this woman?”
“She is a mentally disturbed. There is a reason no man will stay with her for any amount of time. She should spend more time with her psychiatrist than her attorneys. By all accounts Gabriel Aubrey is a wonderful father and the only stable parent in the child’s life.”
“This confirms she’s a nut job.”
“Halle ‘s Mom is white. Gabriel is white. Sorry Halle, but Nala has white in her.”
African-American fans say that it is Halle’s right to choose what is best for her daughter’s hair, and that if Halle wants her child’s hair to be free of chemicals and sport her natural hair, so be it.
“1st off any chemicals in a childs hair especially at that age is damaging…. Just like a perm or color….too much damage will prevent the hair from growing permanently..
“Seriously she’s too young.”
“I agree with Halle. I’m a hairdresser and its way to young to process the hair. Black or white.”
And the rest are sick and tired of race being brought into every single conversation in the news media. The Inquisitr reported in October that Halle Berry tried to have child support payments to Aubry drastically reduced. The former couple, who separated in 2010, have been battling over child custody and child issues ever since.
