Halle wanted Gabriel to choose between dating Kim or seeing his daughter, Nahla! She’s such a control freak!

It sure looks like jealousy is the driving force behind Halle Berry‘s desire for full custody of the 2-year-old daughter, Nahla, she has with model Gabriel Aubry. “The real trouble started last year when Gabriel started dating a high profile reality TV star, ” a source tells RadarOnline. com. Could Kim Kardashian, who he was linked to last fall, really be behind all of this? “Halle totally lost it with Gabriel and gave him an ultimatum – to choose between dating this girl or having a relationship with his daughter.” Naturally Gabriel, 35, didn’t like that and we can’t really blame him.

“Gabriel was furious,” says the source. “Halle has absolutely no right to tell him who he can and can’t date, especially when you consider she’s already moved on herself and is dating Olivier Martinez, but even worse in his mind, was her willingness to dangle their daughter in front of him as bait to make him do what she demands.” You’re being really hypocritical, Halle!

Halle’s lawyering up for a brutal battle

After breaking up with Kim in December, Gabriel filed legal papers with the courts in Los Angeles on December 30th, seeking to be formally recognized as little Nahla‘s father, so that Halle couldn’t control his dating life in the future.

To clear her schedule for the custody battle, Halle, 44, has pulled out of the film New Years Eve, scheduled to start shooting this week. She has been replaced in the film by Katherine Heigl. “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,” the actress’s rep tells People.com.

Halle’s rep goes on to say: “She 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.”

Will Nahla be better off if her parents have joint custody agreement?

But the insider tells RadarOnline.com that Halle’s playing with fire this time and she just might get burned. “Gabriel has a whole load of crazy emails and voicemails from her that show the truth about what she’s like and prove what a control freak manipulator she is,” says the source.

Stay tuned, HollyMoms! This is getting nastier by the minute!
