New details of Halle Berry‘s messy relationship with ex-partner Gabriel Aubry have emerged this week — and it seems things are getting heated between the actress and her former flame.

In a court appearance on Tuesday, Nov. 25, Gabriel, 39, reportedly made “completely and totally unacceptable” racial slurs against the Oscar-winning actress, 48.

The comments allegedly came after Halle accused him of lightening and straightening their daughter’s naturally curly hair in an effort to deny her African-American heritage.

The former couple appeared in court after Halle filed documents against her ex stating he has caused Nahla, 6, “potential psychological and physical damage” and could cause their daughter to wonder “why her natural appearance is not good enough.”

In today’s hearing, a judge ruled neither Halle nor Gabriel are allowed to change Nahla’s hair moving forward.

This is just the latest court battle for the exes, who were previously involved in a lengthy custody dispute over Nahla. Following their 2010 split, Halle married French actor Olivier Martinez and the couple welcomed a son, Maceo-Robertin, in October 2013.
