Halle Berry reaches custody truce with ex

The custody battle that flared up between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry has apparently now died down. The model has filed papers to drop his bid for custody of daughter Nahla. He will now pursue a paternity action that will legally bind him to the 2-year-old, TMZ reports, since he and his Oscar-winning ex never wed.

 “I think both sides realized how out of hand things had gotten recently,” an insider explained to Radar Online. “They both love their daughter and want to make sure her welfare comes first.”

The former couple’s battle had played out in the press, with tabloids eagerly reporting nasty words from both sides. His camp portrayed her as vindictive and out of control, while hers raised allegations that he had made racist comments toward her.

Now, however, it seems they have reached a truce. Halle has accepted a new role in “New Year’s Eve” — a film shoot she dropped out of while bracing for a custody battle with Gabriel.

On Wednesday, a judge reportedly ruled that she can travel to New York with Nahla, but must allow the child’s father visitation while she is there.

“Gabriel and Halle have spoken to each other and have committed to try and make things work, without the courts,” added the source. “Gabriel’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.”

We’re happy to hear this. All those nasty accusations flying back and forth between Mommy and Daddy could not have been good for Nahla (even if she’s not yet old enough to read).
