Gabriel Aubry: Nahla's NYC Caretaker While Halle Berry Shoots Film?

It's a big city, but this could still get pretty awkward.

Radar Online reports that after Halle Berry won the right to take daughter Nahla -- the 2 1/2 year old daughter caught in the middle of a bitter custody dispute -- to New York City while she filmed "New Year's Eve," ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry decided that he'd come along for the ride, too. In fact, Radar reports, Aubry is moving to NYC for as long as Nahla is there -- and becoming Mr. Mom.

Aubry, who in December raised the bitter custody suit that has become a racially-tinged back-and-forth, is renting an apartment in New York and will be Nahla's primary caretaker for the duration of the filming, Radar says.

"The agreement at the moment is that Gabriel will be primary caregiver to Nahla during the time Halle is working, but nothing is set in stone, or agreed in writing, so we will have to just see how that goes," a source told the website.

Associates of Berry claimed that Nahla was terrified of Aubry, though this news may mean that isn't true.

Aubry has dropped the custody suit, but is still pursuing more legal rights with his daughter through a paternity action.
