Halle Berry Loses Big in Court, Jamie Foxx Sued

The Cloud Atlas star can’t take daughter to France, a woman claims the Ray star caused her to fall.

The Los Angeles courts haven’t been too kind to two very talented Academy Award-winning actors lately.

Halle Berry suffered a major blow in her ongoing child custody case. TMZ is reporting that a judge ruled she couldn’t permanently move her 4-year-old daughter to France. The Cloud Atlas star has been in a bitter battle with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry over the fact that she wanted to move Nahla to Paris. Berry had plans to relocate there with her fiancé, Oliver Martinez.


The Oscar-winning actress claimed the Los Angeles lifestyle with its stalker paparazzi made life in California both impossible and dangerous for her and her daughter. But dad Aubry balked over the idea that he and Nahla’s relationship would turn into a transatlantic one. The judge finally ruled in Aubry’s favor. Berry maintains that she never wanted to separate father and daughter, but just make life safer for everyone.

Jamie Foxx is being blamed for one horrible trip — thanks to a bad fall a woman took on his sidewalk. According to TMZ, the alleged injured woman, Catherine Jones, attended a party at the Oscar-winning actor’s home last year and fell on the pavement outside his house, seriously injuring herself.


Jones filed a lawsuit against Foxx in Los Angeles County Superior Court. She’s claiming Foxx negligently managed the sidewalk and she is suing for $10,000, which Jones states, is for hospital fees and other damages.

Thus far, there has been no comment from Jamie on the matter.
