Report: Halle Berry's Ex Has Tapes of Her Rage
According to RadarOnline.com, Aubry is opting not to leak the messages to the media but save them for his upcoming custody battle with Berry over 2-year-old daughter Nahla.
"I honestly think Gabriel should release some of these messages he has from Halle and tell his side of the story, but he won't," a source tells Radar. "He said he's going to save them for family court, which will be a private, press-free environment."
According to Us Magazine, Berry is bracing herself for the custody battle, going so far as to clear her schedule by pulling out of the upcoming film 'New Year's Eve.' "Halle Berry was forced to pull out of a film production in New York this week due to pending custody litigation involving her daughter," her rep said. "She 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."
Yet given the building animosity between the former five-year lovers, Radar's insider says Aubry, a Canadian model 10 years Berry's junior, won't do anything to hurt his daughter. "He knows attacking Halle in the press would ultimately do that," says the source.
What exactly are the tapes like? "She left a crazy message on Gabe's cell just after some pictures came out of him at a Lakers game with a girl last year. She is mega, mega p***ed in the message, calling him, and the girl, all kinds of names. It's certainly something Halle wouldn't want heard. Gabriel played it to me at the time, and said: 'See what I have to deal with?'"
The insider says the messages could "do a number" on Berry if released.
Berry and Aubry were said to have had an amicable split in April 2010, and the two continued co-parenting and described themselves as "still friends." But when Aubry filed papers in December, formally requesting to be recognized as Nahla's father to establish shared custody, things got trickier.
Berry's rep added, "Halle has always made the needs and safety of her daughter her first priority, and both while Halle and Gabriel were a couple and since their breakup, Halle has only acted in her daughter's best interest."
Since her split with Aubry, Berry has entered into a relationship with actor Olivier Martinez and has even put pressure on her new beau to have a baby.
