In a 2011 Los Angeles court filing made shortly before Nahla’s 3rd birthday, Berry said she believed Aubry, 43, was “fundamentally racist.”
“Shortly after Nahla was born, Petitioner often started saying that Nahla was not black that she was white,” Berry wrote in the sealed documents. “I would ask Petitioner how she could be white when she has a black mother. Petitioner responded that in his mind I was not black.”
She claimed he said he did not believe in the “one-drop” theory.
While there are many theories, and I believe in this one, I was more surprised by Petitioner’s lack of awareness of multiracial issues and his apparent inflexibility to allow the decision to be our daughter’s,” she continued in the court papers. “Further, since this was the first time Petitioner made these revelations to me about my race and more importantly our daughter’s race, I was deeply disturbed.”
Accusations of racist behavior have followed Aubry since 2011, whenTMZreported he called Berry the N-word in arguments.
