44 year-old Halle and 35 year-old Gabriel split last April after dating for five years. While the break-up seemed to be friendly, this custody battle is looking fierce.
Halle dropped out of the movie “New Year’s Eve”, which is set to start filming soon, in order to prepare for the custody battle.
A rep said on Monday that she “was forced to pull out of a film production in New York this week due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter…She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention.”
Gabriel filed for joint custody plus child support on December 30, 2010. However Halle’s rep said “Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her.” Her rep gave no further explanation about the claims.
What do you think is really going on? Do you think that the custody battle will be as ugly as it appears to be?
