Halle Berry's Ex Accused of Assaulting Nanny


Halle Berry was in court Tuesday for a hearing during which her nanny sought a restraining order against her ex Gabriel Aubry, who allegedly pushed the nanny last week while she was holding the couple's three-year-old daughter, Nahla.

A judge denied the request for a restraining order sought by Berry's nanny, Alliance Kamdem, according to court papers obtained by ET. Aubry was also in court for the hearing in Los Angeles and was later seen departing the courthouse. 

In denying the petition, the judge called the application for a restraining order "insufficient and speculative." The judge stated further that any concerns related to the allegations "should be resolved in family court" and asserted that Kamdem was free to pursue criminal charges against Aubry.

In her declaration to obtain the restraining order, Kamdem cited an incident last week in which she discovered that Aubry had kept Nahla out of school, so she went to his house to pick her up. She said that when she expressed her concerns about a lack of communication from him regarding Nahla, he became angry and began screaming at her.

The declaration states that the situation escalated from there: "Mr. Aubrey then violently pushed me, while I had Nahla in my arms, against both my shoulders with both of his hands." Kamdem also declared: "I was thrown into the wall behind me while still holding Nahla." 

Aubry, a French-Canadian model, and Berry had Nahla in March 2008. The couple split last year and have been sharing custody of their daughter.
