    Halle Berry Ex's Child Endangerment Investigation Against Gabriel Aubry Dropped

    It's case closed for Gabriel Aubry. One of them, anyway.

    Halle Berry's ex and baby daddy was in court yesterday to discuss his visitation rights, and E! News confirms that during the hearing, the judge also closed a pending child-endangerment case against him upon the recommendation of the Los Angeles County Department of Family and Children Services.

    The DFCS was first called in to investigate after a former nanny accused Aubry of yelling at and shoving her while she was holding his and Berry's daughter, Nahla, who will be 4 on March 16.

    A source tells E! News that Aubry showed up for the hearing in dependency court yesterday, but after a brief hearing, the endangerment case against him was dropped, sending him back to family court leaving him to focus solely on his child custody case with Berry.

    No charges were ever filed and a judge denied the nanny's request for an order of protection against her now ex-boss.

    DFCS employees interviewed Berry, per standard protocol, but the details of their conversation are sealed, as are all official records pertaining to the dependency court case. Family court cases are heard in dependency court if there are concerns about the parents' treatment of their children.

    The DFCS ultimately found no evidence that Nahla was in any danger and, per RadarOnline, also recommended that Aubry no longer be required to have his visits with the child be supervised.

    Last month, Berry filed a petition to be allowed to move to France with Nahla, citing unrelated fears for her safety in the U.S.

    A man who admitted to stalking Berry was recently released from jail and, when she filed her request, a mental patient who had allegedly threatened to kill her had escaped. Robert Hawkins, locked up for terrorizing Madonna, was recaptured a week after his escape.
