Halle Berry, Gabriel Split

Custody in Limbo

4/30/2010 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have split, TMZ has confirmed, and she went to a divorce lawyer three weeks ago to find out about a custody arrangement ... but nothing long-term was agreed upon and no financial settlement has been struck.

videos
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.

Sounds to me as if someone wants to jump start their career. Honestly, who cares about their marital riff? Halle & Gabriel recently purchased a million dollar property in the northern part of Montreal, Quebec and less than two years following the purchase it's splitsville? LOL. They both should become dignified & conduct their battle in full privacy - as Bullock is doing with her s***bag. It appears as if someone's publicist is seeking out to place the spotlight and go public with this riff to gain attention for their client. Its the same divorce BS as we all go through but they have much higher stakes at hand. They both can fully afford to assure that this situation is played out in private and hopefully they wont use the media to broadcast worldwide the rupture of their "union". They should stop being media whores and insist upon obtaining privacy to best concentrate on shaping a dignified and calm environment for the sake of the child - but they probably wont!.

I have inside connections and Ms. Berry is complexed, to say the least. It’s difficult for anyone to be on am emotional rollor coaster all the time. I think Mr. Aubry stayed in the relationship long as he could( unlike the other men who cheated, beat her up or simply took off without an explaination). Ms. Berry has some problems that no man can fix; Gabriel realized that and did the next best thing, he left citing “the age difference” sounds like B S to me, he knew that going into the relationship.

This is to Poster #68 - Fred: First off, they were never married and secondly, Bullock's business was/is being handled anything BUT privately, what the f-ck are you talking about? She announced her divorce and is on the cover of a magazine with their adopted son...you're making no sense! I am in NO WAY putting Bullock down (before a lot of her fans start talking sh-t without reading my comment all the way) I'm just correcting you. The celebs tell their business sometimes because it's gonna come out anyway so they probably figure they will be the one to tell it. Also, I have to ask...WHY THE F-CK did you click the link to READ ABOUT IT if you don't care? Posters who put that sentences anywhere in their comments, really shouldn't because it sounds and is a crazy. Once again smart guy, they were never married! Its irritating when people go on and on about something they clearly know nothing about. Search TMZ's site for something about Bullock or something. UGH!

This is to #70 "Love is complicated"
"You have inside connections and Ms. Berry is complex?" That's a convincing statement (sarcasm)! Don't make Grabriel sound like a Saint because I'm sure he's not perfect either! The relationship didn't work out, blah, blah, blah...people go through things in life that sometimes leaves scars and they walk away with emotional baggage. Maybe she needs a strong man who can recognize it, not take it personal and be there for her...and obviously he wasn't strong enough. As a child you see your father being physically abusive to your mother, and he was an alcoholic...that's pretty significant! You at one point are in a physically abusive relationship yourself where someone hits you hard enough to loose 80% of your hearing in one ear...that's pretty significant! That's enough to make a lot of people "complexed" in a relationship. I'm not making excuses for her and not saying it's right but she's only human! I speak from experience coming from an abusive relationship and there's no excuse for someone to put their hands on another person...no excuse! Gabriel could have said a LOT of other things in a nicer way then comment on the age difference! It was also said 'he started noticing other women.' Don't know the real reason & it's none of my business but both reasons sound selfish & there's another person in all this...their daughter!

I read a couple of days ago that Halle threwwout her live-in because he wasn;t contributing to their marriage financially. Halle has a habit of blaming all ex's for the split. She needs to grow up.

Only those IN the relationship knows what happened.My heart goes out to both Gabriel and Halle. I was hoping this would be the love of her life and a long lasting relationship.
I can assume the both of them are walking around with a hole in their heart.
I wish healing and recovery for both of them.And I pray God will get them both through this tough time.

luckily Halle saw the light, and left this model/clown from the province of quebec. this "french" separatist and his quebecois people despise us Americans and anything to do with the English language.

apparently he wasn't pulling his weight i'm assuming finacially. he was way to young for her neway the relationship just fizzled out but at least she had a healthy realtionship for once this time. im sure he'll continue to be a good father to their daughter she was smart not to marry him. I hink halle should just be alobe she's had men and mariages and now a kid- that's surely enough for her now.
