On Supervised visitation
TMZ is reporting that hottie actress Halle Berry has won a custody dispute with her ex boyfriend and baby daddy Gabriel Aubry. Basically, the issue seems to be that Halle requested that Gabriel receive supervised visitation and a nanny was apparently appointed by the Los Angeles Court. But Gabriel went back to court to have the nanny discontinued; and Halle objected. She did not feel that Gabriel should be left alone with the kid. The court, according to TMZ, sided with Halle. The nanny stays. So basically whenever Gabriel is with the child, a nanny spy will be present. His visitation with his daughter is strictly supervised.
Very interesting….typically, a parent is not given supervised visitation unless there is some fear that harm will come to the child if the parent is left alone with the child. That harm could include kidnapping, sexual abuse, physical abuse, neglect, or any other horror story we hear in the news about what some parents do to their kids. A court is not going to lightly entertain this notion of appointing a supervisor to a parent when he or she visits with their own child — unless they deem it in the “best interest” of the child.
For that reason, I speculate that there is something going on with Halle, Gabriel and baby Nahla that makes the court feel that it is in the best interest of Nahla to have a supervisor present when she is visiting with her father. Emphasis on the word speculate. But there is something very intense about Gabriel, in my opinion. Very intense. I have expressed concerns about that as a matter of fact. I have advocated that Halle bend over backwards to allow him time with his daughter. Sometimes, (and I’m not saying this is true in Gabriel’s case) but sometimes, parents harm their kids to get back at an ex. They go so far as to commit infanticide to get back at an ex. Halle has clearly moved on after this relationship but there is no indication that Gabriel has a new relationship. So I wonder if he’s over her? Or if he is jealous of her new relationship with the French guy, actor Oliver Martinez? Jealousy can be deadly. And while it would surprise me to learn that Gabriel made any kind of threats that would give the court pause in terms of allowing him unsupervised visitation, at that same time, this sort of thing happens all the time where threats are made after a break up; and courts are concerned for the child’s wellbeing; and so that parent is not allowed to be alone with the child.
Again, I have no idea what happened here and why this supervised visitation was ordered and I am not suggesting that Gabriel will do anything to harm his daughter. And maybe Gabriel is a totally cool guy who is unfortunate enough to look so intense. But there is definitely something going on here that is not being disclosed in the public forum. There is a reason why supervised visitation was ordered and is being continued in this case….why didn’t that girl get a good-looking sperm donor? For chrissakes, I don’t understand how Halle could have done this to herself. She has such bad luck with men that by this age she should have known better than to have her child with anything other than a sperm donor. I’m sorry but it is what it is….I just hope they all get out of this alive and that both Nahla and Halle live to see a ripe old age. And no offense to Gabriel. I’m not judging him. He is gorgeous. But oooh. He looks so intense!
