OMG! I saw this article on NaturallyCurly and I almost passed out. How could a parent make this decision without consulting the other parent? Read below and please let me know your thoughts?
Halle Berry and ex Gabriel Aubry have reunited. But not under the circumstances we might have once hoped for.
Yesterday news broke that the X-Men and Monster’s Ball actress is taking model ex Aubry to court for straightening their daughter Nahla’s hair. She claims he is “trying to make our daughter look white,” according to E! News and TMZ reports Monday evening.
The Oscar winner argued with the father of her 6-year-old child in court over where the lines have been crossed when it comes to co-parenting privileges and boundaries. Apparently, Gabriel wants his daughter to have blonder, straighter hair and Halle Berry thinks it’s because he is attempting to hide her African American roots.
Monday morning Berry’s lawyer, Steve Kolodny, represented the actress in her absence. The judge in their case has ordered that Nahla’s hair grow back in its natural state, completely unaltered. Neither parent can change its appearance for the remainder of her childhood.
