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?
