Halle Berry made her first appearance Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court in her custody dispute with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
Berry, wearing a gray striped suit, did not testify in the closed-door hearing. Aubry was not there, but was represented by his lawyers.
The hearing centered on whether Berry could take their daughter Nahla, who turns 3 next month, to New York so the actress could film for a role for New Year’s Eve, which Aubry was against, according to TMZ.
