On October 5, Maceo Robert Martinez turned 1. The adorable little guy is Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez’s miracle baby, and she called him that because the always stunning actress didn’t think she would be able to have another child. The 47-year-old was pre-menopausal and had come to terms with the idea that she might not be able to have another little one, but said that Nahla’s prayers for a sibling came through in the clutch:

“Only her prayers could have done this. I didn’t think it was possible at my age, honestly. They call it a geriatric pregnancy.

I was, you know, on my way. This is probably way TMI, but I was kinda premenopausal, so to have this happen was huge.”

As she told Extra, “I never thought that at my stage in life another baby – and a baby boy – was coming to me, so yeah, I’m blessed.”

And Maceo has definitely been a blessing to his doting mom and dad, and as you can see, he’s growing up fast. He reminds us of what Nahla looked like when she was a baby, and he looks a lot like Berry. The happy family was snapped together after running errands together in Studio City this week. Adorable family. Adorable kid.

Halle Berry Proves Her Ex Bleached Their Daughter’s Hair

The never ending court battle between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry just took an interesting turn.

According to TMZ, Halle Berry has proof that her ex-boyfriend bleached and damaged their daughter’s hair. A forensic consulting lab by the name of Mictrotrace found the evidence. The site claims,

The company analyzed the hair and concluded there was evidence it was chemically treated. The lab went on to say the repeated use of chemicals took their toll, writing there was “extensive damage … likely the cumulative effect of repeated exposure to numerous gentle bleaching treatments.”

A judge ruled that neither Halle nor Gabriel could touch Nahla’s hair. However this evidence may be the missing piece Berry needs to reduce her child support payments to Gabriel. Berry reportedly pays $16,000 a month to Gabriel.

 

Gabriel Aubry Says Halle Berry Is Being Ridiculous About Nahla’s Hair In An Effort To Keep Custody War Raging On

We told you last month that the ongoing feud between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, the father of her daughter, Nahla, was only getting worse and worse these days after Berry took Aubry to court for, in her opinion, trying to make their daughter look less black.

She claimed that Aubry had been chemically altering the 6-year-old’s hair by putting highlights in it, and getting her hair straightened without Berry’s permission in an effort to make her look white. In the end, a judge made the decision that neither Aubry nor Berry could alter Nahla’s hair from its natural state, and that they will allow it to grow out.

Well, Aubry’s people have spoken to TMZ, and they say that he NEVER put any chemicals on Nahla’s hair. The only thing he claims he had done to her hair was putting a blow dryer on it, and through that process, it became less curly . He also feels that Berry is trying to stir up trouble in order to keep their custody battle going longer than necessary.

Aubry was recently seen out with his daughter this week for the first time since he went to court last month, and Nahla’s hair looked like it had been left alone to spiral and do its thing on its own this time around. Hopefully, now there will be some peace between these parents.

Halle Berry Takes Gabriel Aubry Back To Court For Straightening And Dyeing 6-Year-Old Nahla’s Natural Hair

If it wasn’t clear to you by now that Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry can’t stand one another, this new development in their ongoing court battles should make it pretty obvious.

According to TMZ, Berry took Aubry back to court today to find a way to force him to stop chemically altering the hair of their 6-year-old daughter, Nahla. They say that Berry is claiming Gabriel has been getting the child’s hair straightened and even lighting it with highlights so that she doesn’t look so…you know…black.

She wasn’t present in court this morning, but her lawyer, Steve Kolodny, was definitely there, arguing on her behalf against Aubry and his lawyer. Inevitably, it was decided by the judge that NEITHER parent could alter Nahla’s hair from its natural state, and that from here on out, Nahla’s hair will grow back naturally.

This is the first that I’ve personally heard about parents arguing in court over what decisions will be made about their child’s hair, and really, with these two, I’m not surprised that it had to come to all this. Berry and Aubry have been at odds for quite some time now, and just recently, she took him to court to try and get the child support she pays him reduced from $16,000 a month because he’s not working and basically living off of that money. I guess for Berry, she wanted to show the judge what Aubry has been spending her money on, and that includes allegedly trying to make their daughter look like a white girl.

I just can’t with these two…

 

Halle Berry’s Ex Claims He Cannot Get A Job Because Of Her Husband

Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry are headed back to court again! This time around, Gabriel Aubry is fighting back. The model believes that he deserves $16K a month because he cannot get a modeling job.

Aubry claims, it’s been difficult for him to find work after his infamous Thanksgiving fight with Olivier Martinez. Gabriel also says it took him 6 months to recover from the incident. However, TMZ has photographic evidence that he looked completely fine after 6 weeks. Halle responded to Gabriel’s claims with “There is no case, no law, no logic that says a healthy, active man gets to simply live off child support that the wealthier mother earns.”

Also, in exclusive documents, obtained by TMZ, Halle’s lawyer,  claims Gabriel uses the monthly child support for his own personal needs. These needs include, $740 a month for Gabriel’s “Fitness” , $940 a month in clothing, $700 a month for Gabriel’s health insurance, $1,975 a month in car expenses and $1,100 a month in furniture and electronics. He also lists Nahla’s clothing expenses as $675 a month. If we add up all of these numbers, it equals $6130 a month. Therefore the $16K he receives a month is absolutely insane.

Halle Berry Debuts Lingerie Line

Oscar award-winning actress and producer Halle Berry will now become a fashion merchandiser/owner by launching the Parisian lingerie brand, Scandale, in the US. Sold at select Target stores and Target.com, Berry discovered the brand in France five years ago and decided to the partner with the owner of Hop Lun (HK) Ltd, Erik Ryd, to sell Scandale, globally. This makes Berry a co-owner instead of her usual endorsement deals for other brands.

The Scandale brand debuted in 1934. It’s described as a line that was designed for women who had multiple roles to fulfill in their lives such as careers, motherhood and marriage. The first collection will showcase 10 items including bras and panties. The price range is between $7 and $18. For more insight on Scandale, check out their Facebook page.

Check out the behind-the-scenes video with Halle Berry sharing why she decided to globally launch the classic brand.

Halle Berry Wants $16,000 Child Support Payments Reduced; Claims Gabriel Stopped Working And Is Living Off Of Her

When the dust settled after Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubrey’s ugly custodial dispute, Halle was left with gigantic $16,000 per month child support payments. Considering that this adds up to nearly $200,000 annually, we’d say that this was fantastic news for Gabriel. Things are so good that Halle claims her former beau has ceased working altogether. But if the “Extant” actress has it her way, his gravy train will be coming to an end very soon.

According to TMZ, Halle recently filed legal documents asking the judge presiding over their custody case to reduce her monthly payments from $16,000 to $3,000. She argues that because Gabriel has ceased working and is living solely off of her monthly child support payments, he’s abusing the system.

Halle also argues that Gabriel is perfectly capable of working and that if payments are reduced to $3,000, their 6-year-old daughter, Nahla, would still be able to live comfortably if supplemented with his income. Halle and Gabriel currently have joint custody of the elementary schooler, with each of them having her 50% of the time.

It certainly seems unfair for Gabriel to be living the good life at Halle’s expense.
