Halle Berry Back On Talking Terms With Ex-Beau
Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry, who was involved in a bitter custody battle with her ex-boyfriend, seems to be back on normal terms with Gabriel Aubry.
The former couple has decided to put their differences behind for the sake of their three-year-old daughter Nahla, reported Extra online.
“When there’s a child involved, it’s a relief when you can resolve things in a good way,” the 44-year-old actress said.
Berry, who is now dating French actor Olivier Martinez, said the court proceedings have gone well.
“Our issues were never about fighting for her. We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We needed a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I’m so happy we’ve arrived at that place because for her sake, this is the best way. We both love her more than life,” the actress added.
The couple split last April and then Aubry, a French-Canadian model, filed court papers on December 30 seeking formal recognition as Nahla’s father and joint legal and physical custody.
In January, Berry’s rep issued a statement saying, “Halle has serious concerns for her daughter’s well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time.”
A representative for Aubrey, 34, soon responded. “The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla,” the statement read.
