According to reports the Monster actress took her baby daddy Gabriel Aubrey court accusing him of straightening and colouring their daughter’s hair, an act Hale believes was performed to wipe off little Nanhla’s black side.
A source close to Halle also told MailOnline that Gabriel had used racially abusive language towards their daughter, adding: “Halle is a great mom; she wants to keep Nahla on an even keel.
“Halle kept asking and asking Gabriel about Nahla’s hair and he kept denying it.
“What does this say to a six year old who’s half black? Her father is denying her identity.
“Halle then filed the court papers and Nahla’s curls came back.”
In her testimony to the court, Halle said: “I strongly feel that Gabriel’s same underlying attitude is at the root in the changes, which only he could have been causing to our daughter’s hair.”
