Halle Berry faces Lady Di death, says ex

2012-08-23 11:02

Los Angeles – Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend thinks she faces the same tragic fate as Princess Diana if she moves to France.

Gabriel Aubry’s attorney made the claim in a Los Angeles court as he fights for custody over their daughter Nahla.

Halle and Gabriel are embroiled in a court battle over whether the mother should be allowed to move to the European country – where her fiancé Olivier Martinez is from – with their young girl.

The actress believes their offspring will be better protected from aggressive paparazzi in France due to the country’s strict laws about professional celebrity photographers.

Paparazzi cannot photograph famous
But Gabriel’s attorney argued Halle and Nahla would be making the situation worse as France is the same country where Princess Diana was killed in a wild paparazzi car chase back in 1997, according to website TMZ.com.

Halle’s lawyer called several French lawyers – who testified that French judges will punish any photo press members who pursue the family.

Under French laws, paparazzi cannot photograph famous people who don’t want their pictures taken, even if they’re out in public.

Photographers who violate the law can be sued and if they harass the well-known person they can be criminally prosecuted.
