Halle Berry reportedly sues ex for straightening their daughter's hair

Halle Berry has reportedly taken her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry to court over changing their daughter Nahla’s hair.

The 48-year-old actress claims in court documents that dying the 6-year-old’s hair blonde might make their daughter ask “why her natural appearance is not good enough.” Aubry and Berry have been in a custody dispute over Nahla since breaking up in 2010.

Berry also alleged that, in addition to the blonde highlights, Aubry straightened Nahla’s hair.

The actress is also seeking to slash her monthly child support payments from $16,000 to $3,800 per month, alleging that Aubry uses the money for his own purchases.

In the court documents, Berry stated:

I continue to hope that Gabriel and I can find a way to work together to be successful co-parents. It was with regret that I concluded that I had to seek the court’s intervention on these issues, but until Gabriel recognizes the meaning of joint legal custody and how it is implemented, it appears that the court will be my only resort to safeguard Nahla’s best interests.

On Monday, the judge ruled that neither parent could make any alterations to their daughter’s hair.
