Halle Berry  and Gabriel Aubry  parted ways last year , and the split was so amicable that they didn't need a legal custody arrangement for their daughter Nahla. However, the changing nature of their relationship has made a resolution from the court necessary , and now they're asking a judge to intervene. Halle expects the battle to be so time-consuming that she dropped out of the film New Years' Eve, and messy details are leaking from both her and Gabriel's camps. In addition to alleging that Gabriel used racial slurs , Halle apparently believes that he's been negligent enough to put Nahla at risk . Gabriel, meanwhile, says Halle wouldn't return from shoots for days at a time over the Summer while she worked on Dark Tide . It can't be easy sorting out personal matters in public, but tell us — are you surprised by the drama of Halle and Gabriel's custody feud?
