Custody in Limbo
Halle and Gabriel worked out a "very short-term custody arrangement," a very connected source tells TMZ. But when they worked out the arrangement they had not split, though they were clearly having problems. Neither Halle nor Gabriel have tried to make the arrangement permanent for 2-year-old Nahla.
Neither of them have gone to a lawyer to formalize any type of long-term agreement, so despite the fact they have split, there is no custody arrangement or property settlement agreement.
We are told, however, by sources close to the situation, that Halle and Gabriel are "working well together" and are handling parental duties without conflict.
We are told the long-term plan is to share custody but nothing has been formalized in writing.
UPDATE: We're told Halle and Gabriel have agreed to several short-term custody arrangements while they sort things out. They have renewed them each time they have expired and are still working under a short-term agreement but no permanent agreement has been struck.
