Controversy: Six Years Old

When Nahla was six, her family faced a significant controversy regarding her appearance. Berry took her ex-partner, Aubry, to court, accusing him of straightening and lightening their daughter's naturally curly hair. Berry claimed that these actions were an attempt to alter Nahla's appearance to deny her African-American heritage.
