Wearing an oversized poncho, jeans, a cap, and sunglasses -- despite the uncharacteristically grey California weather -- the star kept her little girl close as they stepped out in Los Angeles. Nahla, clad in a brown and pink raincoat, kept pace with her mom and carried a big, colorful picture book.
No doubt the story in that book is a happier one than the tot is living with her parents at the moment. Berry and her ex, French Canadian model Gabriel Aubry, both want what's best for their little girl -- but they disagree on what exactly that is.
Earlier this month, the Oscar-winning actress lost a court petition to move full-time with her daughter and her fiance, actor Olivier Martinez, to Martinez's native France. That decision -- plus ongoing tensions between her current and former beaus -- culminated in a violent brawl at Berry's home on Thanksgiving, which led to even more legal woes (including restraining orders against both Aubry and Martinez).
