Halle Berry Seeks Permission to Move to France to Escape Stalkers

Steve Granitz/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- It's a troubling time for Halle Berry.

She has reportedly asked a judge for permission to take her 3-year-old daughter Nahla to live in France in a bid to escape a stalker's threats. The child's father, Gabriel Aubry, is trying to block the move abroad, and on top of that, the actress has to look for temporary accommodations while her Hollywood home undergoes renovation.

According to TMZ , the Monster's Ball star has asked a judge for permission to move to France with her daughter because a mentally unstable man identified as Robert Hoskins has made a threat on Berry's life. In addition, another stalker who recently trespassed onto the actress's property has just been released from prison.

Hoskins has previously been in trouble with the law for allegedly threatening to slit Madonna's throat, the same threat he recently made to Berry.

According to TMZ, the child's father, Gabriel Aubry, is not happy with the request. In fact, he believes that Berry wants to move to stop him from having contact with Nahla. He's also not to pleased that Berry would be joined by rumored fiancé Olivier Martinez.

Meanwhile, Berry was seen checking out homes in Malibu on Thursday. TMZ's quotes sources as saying the star is looking for a short-term rental while her Hollywood home is undergoing renovations.
