A Los Angeles judge has reportedly denied Halle Berry‘s hopes for a future in France.
The Monster’s Ball actress – who is now engaged to French actor Olivier Martinez – has been fighting to move her 4-year-old daughter Nahla with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry to Paris. According to TMZ, a judge ruled against the overseas move.
Despite their bitter custody battle, Berry claims she was not intending to keep Aubry away from his daughter for good.
She has claimed that France is a better place to raise her daughter rather than Hollywood, because of its “appeal of privacy and a greater sense of safety.”
“Because we are followed all the time, she is starting to feel like she is somehow special, and of course she is,” Berry continued. “But I want her to understand that she’s special because of who she is, not because she was born into this celebrity blender.”
This is the latest twist in the ongoing war between the exes. During their custody battle over Nahla, there have been allegations of abuse, a custody evaluation report, and child support payment court orders.
