A very excited Nahla Aubry, 3, was spotted running up to greet her father Gabriel Aubry, 36, as he picked her up from preschool in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Friday (March 2).
The French-Canadian model transformed an ordinary walk to the car into an amusement park ride as he playfully swung his daughter up and down until they reached his vehicle. The doting dad carefully strapped Nahla into the backseat of his car before the pair zoomed off.
It seems as though the former restaurant owner is being urged to pen a tell-all book about his rocky relationship with ex-girlfriend and Nahla’s mother Halle Berry.
According to RadarOnline.com, Gabriel’s pals want their friend to tell his side of the story and redeem his reputation as an upstanding person, putting the current trashing he’s receiving in the media to rest.
“From what I can tell, Halle has to be in control at all times, period,” a close friend of the handsome hunk reveals. “It’s the reason that they broke up, because he just couldn’t handle being under her thumb like that. Gabe feels that relationships are about treating each other equally, but it seems that in Halle’s romantic relationships, this isn’t the case.”
“Gabe’s friends want the world to know the real Halle Berry,” the source continues.
However, Gabriel has had many offers to write books and give interviews in exchange for a big payday, but he has turned them all down. One day, Nahla is going to be old enough to understand what was going on between her parents, and he wants to be able to look his daughter in the eye, and say everything he has done, has been for her. Writing a book would be a great way to get back at Halle, but what would that get him? Gabe always thinks of his daughter when making any decision. Halle should count her lucky stars that her ex is being a gentleman, especially under these circumstances.”
So what does Gabriel reportedly think of his ex’s recent decision to get rid of respected lawyer Neil Hersh in exchange for legal pitbull Stephen Kolodny?
“Neither Gabe nor his lawyer are scared or intimidated by Stephen,” the source claims. “Gabe thinks this will help his case, because he thinks it shows how desperate and impatient she is.”
“He doesn’t believe either that Halle is afraid for her safety, when was the last time you saw her taking Nahla to school with a bodyguard? He believes it’s just another plot she is hatching to keep Gabriel out of Nahla’s life,” the source adds.
