Halle Berry made explosive claims about her ex Gabriel Aubry, accusing him of incest, racism and emotional abuse during their fight over custody of daughter Nahla, back at the turn of the decade.
New details have come to light about the case through documents obtained by Radar.com which were originally sealed by courts.
In the explosive legal documents from the 2011 case, the actress made several shocking claims about her ex.
Berry, 53, and Aubry engaged in a bitter public custody battle after their split in 2010. The couple began dating in 2005 and welcomed daughter Nahla in March 2008.
Among Berry’s claims about Aubry: She reported he used racial epithets during their relationship, in addition to displaying bias by refusing to recognize their daughter as biracial.
She also discussed Gabriel’s past sexual relationship with a member of his family, contending that the emotional damage from that situation ruined her and Aubry’s sex life.
‘After the first six months of our relationship, our sex life diminished and after one year we had sex less than three times per year,’ Halle testified, according to legal documents.
Berry said that Aubry failed to deal with their issues.
‘[Gabriel] refused to either recognize or accept responsibility for these issues. Instead, he criticized my body in ways which are very demeaning to women … I finally convinced [him] to go to a joint therapist to address these issues.’
She claimed Aubry admitted to having a sexual relationship with a member of his family during the time he was bouncing between foster homes.
In her deposition Berry said the relationship went on ‘for years’ until the unidentified partner ended things.
Berry further accused Aubry of having a history of mental health issues, suggesting he was unfit to be Nahla’s primary parent.
She said that the model suffered from depression and social anxiety but refused to seek treatment, which in part lead to the couple’s split.
Aubry’s legal team requested that the court strike much of Berry’s testimony from the record, claiming her comments were irrelevant or ‘misstat[ing] facts,’ and had ‘no foundation.’
Aubry’s lawyers also said that Berry’s claims about his psychological state breached therapist-client privilege.
