The custody battle gets even uglier as Halle insists her daughter is black.
Not only are Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend, model Gabriel Aubry, fighting over custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Nahla, but they’re also at odds over her race. “I feel she’s black,” Halle tells Ebony magazine. “I’m black and I’m her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory.” Gabriel, 34, on the other hand, reportedly flips out anytime someone calls the little girl black and reportedly has used racial slurs in reference to Halle in the past. How awful!
Despite insisting that Nahla is definitely black, Halle, 44, doesn’t want to to totally define her daughters race. “What I think is that that’s something she’s going to have to decide. I’m not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that’s what she’s going to have to decide — how she identifies herself in the world,” says Halle. “But I feel like she’s black.”
