Could there be a thaw in the air between Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry? RadarOnline is reporting that the couple have reached a truce in their increasingly bitter battle over daughter Nahla, 2-1/2. Gabriel reportedly filed a motion on Tuesday (February 15) to end his custody case and to dismiss his request for child support from Halle.
“I think both sides realized how out of hand things had gotten recently,” a source close to the situation said. “They both love their daughter and want to make sure her wellfare comes first.”
“Gabriel and Halle have spoken to each other and have committed to try and make things work, without the courts – Gabe’s decision to drop his case is his way of showing Halle he’s prepared to take a leap of faith and trust her once again.”
The fallout between the couple began when Gabriel filed for joint custody in December. This started a war-of-the-words between the two, with both sides attacking each other in the press.
Meanwhile, People is reporting that Halle was in court on Wednesday for a hearing to determine whether she could take Nahla to New York so she could film for her part in New Year’s Eve, a move that Gabriel did not approve of. Due to the custody issues, Halle had apparently taken a smaller part than the one for which she was first cast. No word yet on how Gabriel’s latest move will affect this aspect of the case.
