Halle Berry Says Gabriel Aubry Wants Daughter to Look White

Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry went to war in court over their daughter's hair and a judge ruled that neither could change the natural state of the 6-year-old's locks. She claimed he was trying to make the girl look more white.

According to E! News, Berry charged that Aubry had straightened and highlighted their daughter's hair to make her appear less African-American. Berry is biracial with a white mother and African-American father while Aubry is a French-Canadian model.

Berry's attorney Steve Kolodny made the arguments on the actress behalf in court Monday while Aubry presented his own side of the story, according to TMZ.com.

It was the just the latest court battle for the Academy Award-winning actress, who is married to French actor Olivier Martinez, and Aubry.

In 2012, the couple faced off in court over child endangerment charges Aubry filed with Los Angeles County Department of Family and Children Services, according to E! News. A judge closed the case upon recommendation from the agency.

Berry had filed a petition in 2012 asking that she be allowed to move to France with her daughter because of safety concerns in the United States, reported E! News. Berry, who married Martinez in 2013, gave birth to a son, Maceo, last October.

Last year, she joined with actress Jennifer Garner to champion an anti-paparazzi bill in California that dealt with photographing children. Berry had testified in front of state legislators in favor of the law, designed to prevent harassment celebrity children by photographers, reported The Guardian.

"I started this fight with a great deal of hope and a bit of uncertainty so I cannot express my immense gratitude that Gov. (Jerry) Brown has recognized, and acted to remedy, the plight of children who are tormented because of the identity or prominence of their parents," Berry said in a statement after the bill was passed.

"On behalf of my children, it is my hope that this is the beginning of the end for those overly aggressive paparazzi whose outrageous conduct has caused so much trauma and emotional distress," Berry said.
