Oscar-winner Halle Berry was seen dropping off her daughter Nahla at school in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (November 29). The single mom stayed close to her pretty preschooler as they walked into class.
“They keep playing this game and Nahla is used as a pawn,” a source tells Us Weekly of the 4-year-old girl who is caught in the middle of her parents’ bitter custody battle.
“It’s her I feel sorry for,” adds the source after the highly-publicized Thanksgiving Day brawl between her father, male model Gabriel Aubry, and her mother’s fiancé, actor Olivier Martinez.
Says another source of the Monster’s Ball actress, who has a history of abusive relationships, ”All [Halle] wants is a normal family life.”
Both men were injured after Aubry dropped off his daughter for the holiday at Berry’s California home. Martinez, a former boxer, broke his right hand, while Aubry walked away with several facial injuries.
This is the latest twist in the ongoing fight 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.
