A judge in Los Angeles on Friday denied the actress’s request to move from Los Angeles to France with 4-year-old daughter Nahla, according to TMZ.
Nahla’s father Gabriel Aubry, a Canadian actor and model who works primarily in L.A., objected to the move.
Berry, who is engaged to actor Olivier Martinez, has maintained that France is a safer place for her to raise her daughter, noting stronger paparazzi laws.
The couple later came to what had appeared to be an amicable agreement – with the help of a judge.
“Our issues were never about fighting for her,” Berry said at the time of Nahla. “We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We needed a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I’m so happy we’ve arrived at that place.”
