Halle Berry Claims Ex-Boyfriend is Trying to Make Daughter Look White

| by Michael Allen

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry are in a court battle to determine how much child support she owes her ex-boyfriend for his care of their six-year-old daughter Nahla.

The Oscar-winning actress is asking a court to reduce her monthly child support payments to the French-Canadian model from $16,000 per month to about $3,000, noted Gawker.

According to TMZ, Berry accused Aubry of trying to make Nahla look white because he straightened the child's naturally curly hair and added highlights.

After Berry's lawyer Steve Kolodny made the argument in court this morning, the judge ruled that neither Berry or Aubry can change the child's natural hair.

EOnline.com notes that when Berry was asked about her daughter's bi-racial identity by Ebony magazine in 2011, she stated, "What I think is that that's something she's going to have to decide. I'm not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself, and that's what she's going to have to decide, how she identifies herself in the world. And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That's how I identified myself, but I feel like she's Black. I'm Black and I'm her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory."

The "one-drop theory" is when someone has one drop of African blood they are considered black.
