Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have long stood as models of how not to treat the person with whom you're co-parenting a child (see: brawl, citizen's arrest, insane child support), but they've taken their bickering over daughter Nahla to a new low: As TMZ reports, Berry hauled Aubry back into court on Monday, and the subject of contention was Nahla's hair, which Berry claims Aubry has been straightening and lightening in an apparent attempt to make the 6-year-old look less African American. (Aubry is white and Berry is biracial, notes E! Online).
The judge ruled that neither parent can alter Nahla's hair. Berry identifies both herself and her daughter as black, notes the LA Times, saying in a 2011 interview that "I feel like she's black. I'm black and I'm her mother." Berry last month sought to reduce her child support payments to Aubry, adds the Times; she currently pays $16,000 a month and reportedly wants it cut to less than $4,000 to prompt the unemployed model to get a job.
