Halle Berry wants to relocate from the U.S. to France because she is in 'fear for her life and the life of her child', it has emerged.
According to reports by TMZ and Radar Online, the actress is terrified of threats allegedly made by stalker Robert Hoskins, who also threatened Madonna back in the 1990s.
Berry has apparently 'asked a judge for permission to move to boyfriend Olivier Martinez’s homeland with her three-year-old daughter Nahla.'

'Friends are scared for her life because Robert Hoskins wants to kill her,' an insider told Radar. 'She is terrified for her safety.'
'The LAPD told Halle that Hoskins threatened: "I’m going to kill that b****, I’m going to cut her throat."'
Hoskins was arrested back in 1995 for making threats against Madonna.
He was convicted on charges of stalking, making violent threats and assault.
According to the website, he claimed the singer was his wife, and threatened to slice her throat, also threatening to kill her bodyguards.
Hoskins was arrested after scaling the walls of Madonna's home and trying to steal her security guard's gun, who then was forced to shoot him out of self defence.
After serving a ten year prison sentence, Hoskins was released last year where he was then sent to a psychiatric hospital near Los Angeles.
According to both websites, he has now escaped from the institution and is 'on the loose.'
'When he came out of prison, he said: "F**k Madonna, I want to cut Halle Berry’s throat,"' a source told Radar.

'They sent him to Metropolitan State Hospital last fall but he escaped on Tuesday, and it’s really frightening because he told everyone there that he was going to kill Halle.'
The star is now said to have hired 24 hour security, and received visits at home from the Los Angeles Police Department.
The insider added: 'The police are serious about this guy because he always travels with a knife and gun.
Berry has been embroiled in a custody battle with Nahla's father Gabriel Aubry who is, according to TMZ, trying to 'block' her move to France.

Aubry was spotted out with Nahla in Los Angeles today, while his ex-girlfriend took a look at a multi-million dollar home in Malibu.
The parents are due back in court on Friday for discussion over papers Berry filed requesting permission to move with their three-year-old daughter.
According to Radar, Berry has considered other options such as moving her family to Northern California, but believes 'France seems like the best option because of Olivier.'
The couple, who star together in forthcoming film Dark Tide, are rumoured to be engaged.

In fact, according to TMZ, the reports which originally said Berry was engaged to Martinez last December was in fact false.
However, the website is claiming the couple 'did become engaged sometime after January 1.'
The Los Angeles Department of Children and Family Service has advised the pair to go on a course to help them co-parent their daughter.
A source said: 'The report recommends that Halle and Gabriel attend parenting classes together, so that they can co-parent Nahla together.

'The classes will give them the tools to work through their issues, and hopefully become better parents for it.'.
Aubry is currently being investigated for battery and child endangerment following an alleged altercation with three-year-old Nahla's nanny.
The French-Canadian model is thought to have been angered by the move, thinking it is 'punitive' and would lead to him never seeing his daughter.

A source told RadarOnline.com last week: 'Social workers have recommended that Halle maintain primary custody of Nahla.
'Nahla spends most of her time with her mother. DCFS has also made a new recommendation that Gabriel not be alone with Nahla.
'Case workers are recommending that a nanny be present with Gabriel during his visitation times. Halle's nanny had been with Nahla when Gabriel had his custodial time from noon until she went to sleep.
'However, after the alleged incident between the nanny and Gabriel, that hasn't been in place, and he has been alone with Nahla. It will be up to the judge to implement the recommendations.'
