Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry’s Custody battle over their 2 year old Nahla continues to get uglier and uglier.  Huffington Post reports:

As her custody battle turns ugly and racial, Halle Berry would like to thank her ex, Gabriel Aubry–for his sperm donation.  “You were only good for one thing… Thanks for the donation,” she allegedly wrote in an email according to Radaronline.com.

Halle and Gabriel split last April, reportedly amicably as they worked out a temporary custody agreement for 2-year-old Nahla. Gabriel filed a paternity petition in December, and the custody battle has turned nasty with reports of Gabriel being abusive and throwing around the n-word and other vulgarities. Sources close to Halle also claim Nahla is terrified of her father and cries when he visits.

Now an ex-girlfriend of Gabriel’s has come forward to TMZ backing up claims of Gabriel’s racism. The woman said he “has always been a borderline racist” and she was shocked when he got together with Halle.

For what it’s worth, a source close to Gabriel tells Radar he would never say the n-word – though he has been known to hurl other expletives at Halle.  “It’s just not something that would come out of Gabriel’s mouth,” the source said. “I’ll confess that I’ve heard him call her “a f***ing b**ch” before — when he’s been provoked, but I am talking serious provocation.”

 I hate to hear about these type of custody battles, where all the rules are out the window.   It just seems like Nahla needs to be the priority here and it seems like her well being may be getting lost in the fight.  Of course, we don’t know what is going on behind closed doors,  there  can be  DV issues that have been hidden.  When I see various pictures of of Nahla with her parents, she doesn’t appear to be terrified of either her Mother or Father.    I hope that whatever is being stated is the truth and not exaggerated to drive home a point.   Also, I’m hoping that they are able to find a happy medium that does not hurt their daughter in the long run.
