A few weeks ago we heard that Halle Berry was in court seeking a restraining order against a stalker of hers. Then Halle was back in court because she was fighting her daughter, Nahla’s dad for custody, after she feared his temper with their nanny. Seems like Halle is involved in the court system all the time these days, but now TMZ has broken the story that she may be in serious danger and needs to leave the U.S.
It has been reported that there have been serious threats to Halle’s life from a stalker, so she is asking a judge for a change to her custody rights so that she can move to France with Nahla. Evidently, Nahla’s dad, Gabriel Aubry is not happy about this and is trying to prevent Halle from taking Nahla out of the country.
According to TMZ, Robert Hoskins, a man who suffers from a psychological condition and who escaped from a mental institution last week has made serious threats to Halle’s life, telling her that he wants to “slit her throat.” You might remember that this was the same guy that threatened Madonna a few years ago and was actually shot by her bodyguard after he trespassed onto Maddie’s property back in ’95. So this guy actually has a history. Yikes!
Understandably, Halle is very scared because a threat like that, even from someone who has a history of mental illness is terrifying. And, in some cases, someone with a mental illness actually has more of a potential to actually go through with a threat like this one. Accepting that this story is accurate, and not an exaggeration, I feel for Halle because she has to put her safety and the safety of Nahla above everything else. I am conscious though of the amount of time Halle is spending in court these days, fighting the law or someone else. A lot of Pink readers have commented that Halle has become quite a fighter these days.. still, this is pretty scary.
