Halle Berry and her estranged boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, flew to South Africa on Sunday where Berry will spend the next several months taping the film Dark Tide.
Berry and Aubry split after 5 years but not before conceiving their beautiful 2 year old daughter, Nahla. Although the two broke up and have not yet worked out permanent custody arrangements, they will be living together in a home that was rented for Berry while she’s on location. Aubry, a successful supermodel, did not want to miss out on months of seeing his daughter and has decided to move half way around the world to take over parenting duty while Berry works. Berry 43, will pay Aubry 34, to be her full-time nanny while she works.
In May a source told Radar the following:
It’s been pretty difficult for Gabriel to see Nahla the last few weeks. He’s really getting sick of it and it’s getting to the point where he is seriously considering his options regarding pursuing permanent custody. The latest issue is that Halle is due to move to South Africa during July, August and September to work on a movie and she wants to take Nahla with her full time. That would mean Gabriel not seeing his daughter for three whole months and there’s no way he’s going to allow that.
Gabriel requested that he be allowed to keep Nahla with him in Los Angeles, but Halle wouldn’t let that happen, so the two reached a total stalemate and it started getting nasty, with both of them looking into entering a legal battle.
In the end, they reached an agreement. Basically Halle is going to pay Gabriel to be a kind of full-time nanny and to come to South Africa for the three months she’s there, and to be Nahla’s full-time caregiver.
There have been no reports of the pair permanently reconciling. This arrangement is just so that neither of them have to go several months without seeing their daughter.
Good luck to the Berry/Aubry co-parents!
