The situation between Gabriel and Halle has gotten so bad that Gabriel felt “forced” to file a petition on December 30 for custody of their two-year-old daughter Nahla, to ensure his legal rights to visitation.
Here’s what RadarOnline.com is reporting:
“Basically whenever Gabriel doesn’t do exactly what Halle tells him to do, or if he does something she doesn’t approve of or like, she goes crazy on him, screaming and shouting,” the source says.
“Contrary to public perception Halle has a particularly nasty temper, and she can be really controlling and vindictive.
“I’ve been with him when he’s gotten these insane calls from Halle — with her screaming at him and going crazy, when the poor guy hasn’t done anything!”
The source says the couple’s troubles really came to a head towards the end of last year when Gabriel started dating other women. He was photographed out in public on dates and a number of magazines ran stories about him dating and enjoying the single life.
“Halle was absolutely furious and had a complete melt-down. She basically gave him an ultimatum — to choose between dating other women and carrying on being on her good side.
“She was particularly angry that he had been so public, even going to a Lakers game one time, and she totally berated him, basically telling him that if he has to date, just date a nobody waitress that nobody will care about.’
“Gabriel is one of the most laid-back, nicest guys that I know, but in the end he just got sick of being bossed around and told what to do by his ex-girlfriend.”
