It’s been one rough week for Halle Berry, to say the least. This past weekend, she literally watched her fiancé, Olivier Martinez, savagely beat her ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry, until he was a bloody, black and blue mess. And it didn’t help that the fight has now intensified her custody battle with Aubry over their daughter, Nahla. Now, rumor has it that Berry is fed up with the drama and the media scrutiny surrounding her personal life and she is considering walking away from acting to protect her daughter.
According to RadarOnline, sources claim that Berry is considering taking a break from Hollywood and hopes that the time away from the limelight will grant her family, especially her daughter, some peace.
“Now that a court has ruled Halle can’t move to France permanently, she feels she’s left with no alternative but to quit her career,” said a source. “It may seem pretty dramatic, but Halle doesn’t know what else she can do to stop the tabloids writing about her.”
“In the last few years, she has worked on only a handful of films, so she can dedicate most of her time to Nahla,” the source added.
The source claims that Berry is concerned that Nahla’s upbringing isn’t normal enough and that she just wants Nahla to have a regular childhood.
“She also thought that would make her less of a target for the paparazzi, but with all the drama going on in her personal life, that hasn’t been the case.
“Halle thinks that Nahla’s upbringing has been far from ideal. Her picture is taken by photographers all over the world whenever she’s with her mom, and Halle would hate to think that Nahla may come to believe that’s a natural occurrence.”
However, leaving acting behind may be more difficult for Berry than she thinks.
“But she made a life as an actress, an Oscar-winning one too, so it would be hard for her to just quit,” the source claims.
If the rumor is true, Berry certainly isn’t the first star to want to walk away from the limelight. Check out some other stars who left fame behind for a simpler life below. – nicholas robinson
