Apparently, there's a reason why Gabriel Aubry recently panicked over his paternity.
The Canadian model filed a motion on December 30 to be officially, legally declared the father of Nahla, the two-year old daughter he shares with Halle Berry. Insiders tell Radar Online his concern over custody status is based on a series of explosive fights with his ex.
"Whenever Gabriel doesn't do exactly what Halle tells him to do, or if he does something she doesn't approve of or like, she goes crazy on him, screaming and shouting," the source says.
Referring to Berry as someone with a "nasty temper," this friend says things grew more heated than ever near the end of the year, as Aubry was spotted out in public with Kim Kardashian and others.
"Halle was absolutely furious and had a complete melt-down. She basically gave him an ultimatum: choose between dating other women and carrying on being on her good side... in the end he just got sick of being bossed around and told what to do by his ex-girlfriend."
