Nanny takes on Halle's ex
A US judge has declined to grant a restraining order requested by Halle Berry's former nanny, who claimed the actress's ex-boyfriend had pushed her and risked hurting the couple's daughter.
Alliance Kamdem claimed Gabriel Aubry pushed her into a door as she was holding the former couple's 46-month-old daughter Nahla last week.
"I was terrified," Kamdem said in a sworn declaration. "The push was so forceful that if there had not been a wall behind me to stop the force of my movement I would have fallen down with Nahla in my arms."
She claimed Aubry showed "irrational rage" from soon after she began caring for the child last June. "Within a week of the start of my employment, Mr Aubry began becoming verbally abusive and aggressive towards me," she said.
"He would say things to me like, 'What are you doing here? You are a spy. You report everything I say. You're not even doing your job. Nahla doesn't like you, she doesn't want you here'."
Berry and Aubry both attended a closed court session on Tuesday, in which the actress reportedly asked the judge to keep Aubry away from the toddler.
The Los Angeles Superior Court delayed a decision until Monday.
