The bitter custody battle continues for Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry.
The latest twist? Halle has enlisted help from fellow high-profile mama, Salma Hayek. According to the New York Daily News, Salma submitted a confidential court declaration on Halle’s behalf, arguing that France is a safer place for children of celebrity parents.
Salma, 45 – who is married to French billionaire François-Henri Pinault – reportedly appeared in court Thursday stating that France has tougher paparazzi laws than the U.S. The Frida star said the rules make her feel much safer when she’s out in public with 4-year-old daughter Valentina.
Halle and Gabriel are parents to 4-year-old daughter Nahla. The Monster’s Ball actress is now engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez and wants to move their daughter to Paris. But Gabriel is fighting the move.
On the first day of trial Thursday, the estranged parents apparently sat far apart in the courtroom and did not look at each other.
