*TMZ is reporting that Halle Berry’s ex, Gabriel Aubry, “went nuts” whenever anyone would refer to their daughter as “black.”

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ that Aubry insisted his baby was white – and would go off whenever he’d read a story about Nahla that referred to her as “black.”

TMZ said Gabriel would tell Halle and others they should demand a “retraction” when such references were made regarding his daughter.

As TMZ previously reported, sources claim Gabriel has called Halle the “N” word  — and one woman previously involved with him referred to him as a “borderline racist.”
