Halle: Restraining Order?
Halle Berry to seek retraining order against Gabriel Aubry.
Do you think it’s right for Gabriel Aubry to not be allowed to see his daughter following the Thanksgiving day fight? Should Halle Berry be able to move to France with her and Aubry’s daughter, Nahla?

Following the brutal brawl on Nov. 22 between Berry’s ex, Aubry, and fiancee Olivier Martinez, a judge has issued a permanent restraining order for Aubry against Martinez. A temporary restraining order, set to expire on Nov. 29, is currently in place also keeping Aubry at least 100 yards from Berry, Martinez, and 4-year-old Nahla, which Aubry fought on Nov. 27 to have lifted, but the judge denied his request.

For more insight into the custody battle brewing between Berry and Aubry, Celebuzz turned to HLN host, Jane Velez-Mitchell, who digs into the legal aspects of the case and whether Berry should be allowed to move to France with Nahla.

“No, she should not be allowed to just move to France and a judge reportedly agreed with my position. You can’t just pick up and take off with your child and expect the other person, the ex, to follow you wherever you’re going. That’s not fair,” said Velez-Mitchell.

“Gabriel has reportedly said he’s always wanted 50/50 custody and Halle Berry wanted primary custody. You have to ask yourself, is that fair to a child to say ‘honey, you should not have access a good percentage of time to your own dad?’”

Both Aubry and Martinez suffered injuries as a result of the violent fight and were taken to the ER after the brawl. Aubry’s attorney has since released photos of the 36-year-old model with black-and-blue bruises and swelling to both eyes, while Martinez was seen exiting Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A. on Nov. 27 with a brace on his right hand.

“This is an abomination for three adults to be behaving this way over a four-year-old child. She seems like the adult in this situation. This has got to leave her very traumatized,” Velez-Mitchell said, adding they need to start acting like adults for the sake of their young daughter.

“The only way these three adults can clean up this mess is stop being narcissists and start thinking about the child first, not where you want to live, but what is best for this child. What is best for this child is to have peace between her mommy and daddy.”
