Glad That’s Settled: Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry Reach Agreement In Bitter Custody Battle

It seems that actress Halle Berry and ex-lover Gabriel Aubry have decided to put aside their differences and have reached an agreement that is in the best interest of their 4-year-old daughter Nahla.

Halle and Gabriel have been  running back and forth to court since the Thanksgiving Day showdown  occurred between Gabriel and Halle’s fiance Oliver Martinez in her driveway, which resulted in both men being treated in the emergency room for injuries sustained during the brawl and Gabriel eventually in police custody. Since the altercation, Halle was granted a temporary restraining order that prohibited Gabriel from coming within 100 feet of her, Oliver, and Nahla. The temporary order expired Tuesday and Halle sought to make it permanent. Gabriel wasn’t having it, as the order would have ultimately kept him from seeing his child, so the two have been duking it out in family court ever since. Until yesterday, that is. It is being reported by E! News that after two days of courtroom drama, the two have put an end to the ugly custody dispute.

While exact details of the agreement have not been revealed, Halle’s attorney, Blair Berk is said to have passed E! News a handwritten note after emerging from the courtroom that read:

“The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statement on the matter.”

I’m sure Halle and Gabriel are both letting out huge sighs of relief as it looked like this could get extremely ugly(ier) and appeared as if the situation had the potential to drag on forever. Hopefully the two will continue to work together with Nahla’s best interest always being first priority since she is the one who is most effected by their constant disputing and attempts at hurting each other. One source even shared with US Weekly that they seemed to be using Nahla as a “pawn” and that she was suffering because of it. Hopefully these parents have seen the error of their ways.

Do you believe Halle and Gabriel have put the drama behind them?

    Gabe probably got his wish and does not have to deal with this guy or anyone again when he’s bringing the child back to Halle and he probably also promise not to sue this guy for damages in return for a fat check! She only has 50% custody of the child, she’s NOT the Custodial Parent. Gabe could of raise all kind of hell in court about this guy being around his daughter. Not surprised they reached an agreement so quickly!

    What is wrong with Berry? She is dating a man that would beat someone senseless. Also, why did she have an issue with who Aubry was dating and now she’s dating a thug!

    I think the article hit what I’ve been saying on the head. These two ADULTS need to stop acting like children and do what is the best interest of their child. All of this foolishness is just hurting Nahla.

    Halle had present “Boy Toy” beat the crap out of old “Boy Toy” in retaliation for the $20,000/mth “child support” payments it is claimed she’s been ordered to pay him. If she’s paying him child support, what’s the “custody battle” over? She pays child support when he has custody. If he has custody how can she have him not see the daughter he has custody of. The the question is…Is it just “baby mama drama” or is she an ex-wife and it’s alimony she’s paying which means there’s hidden drama? Will the Cleveland black girl rear her head again, cause you know that’s who ordered the beat-down in the driveway, when two men decided to fight over the girl and prove their manhood, cause we all know she instigated that beat down Gabriel took from Martinez. She claims to be fearful of Gabriel but the pictures of Gabriel after the beat-down screams more court drama. I say there’s more to come and Inquiring minds wants to know?
