Halle Berry reportedly wanted to move to France because of her fiance’s plans to leave the United States.
The actress planned to up sticks and take her four-year-old daughter, Nahla – from her relationship with model Gabriel Aubry - because French-born Olivier Martinez, no longer wants to live in America.
A source told RadarOnline.com: "The main reason that Halle wanted to uproot Nahla from Southern California, where her father, Gabriel Aubry, currently lives, is because Olivier doesn't want America to be his primary residence anymore.
"Olivier's family and friends all live in France and he is desperate to move back there. Yes, Halle did like the fact that France has strict privacy laws that govern the press, but that wasn't the reason for the proposed move.”
Ultimately actor Olivier was involved in a fight last month after the tensions caused around the custody and relocation battle.
The insider continued: “The judge overseeing the custody dispute between Halle and Gabe didn't think it was in Nahla's best interest for her to be moved halfway around the world to a foreign country, mainly because contact with her father would have drastically cut."
