Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry Hammer It Out in Court

4/12/2011 3:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry just left the L.A. County Courthouse, after trying to finalize a custody settlement with the judge.

Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry
TMZ was in the courtroom when Judge Mark Juhas said to Gabriel and his lawyers, "We're making huge progress.  We need to stick with it." 

Halle and her lawyers, Neal Hersh and Judy Bogen, went into chambers to talk with the judge.  Before that, Gabriel and his lawyers, Gary Fishbein and Kristina Royce, went into chambers to jawbone with hizzoner.

We're told it's all part of a settlement conference over Nahla's custody and visitation.  The major stumbling block has been Halle's acting schedule, which takes her out of town from time to time.

From what happened this AM, it looks like Halle and Gabriel are on the verge of an agreement -- and a truce.

I am really sick of everyone trying to make her out to be the bad guy here. There is no reason he should be able to use that child against her to try to control her life. French Canadian men can be very controlling, possessive and jealous and he looks like an A-one Jerk!

I hope they can work it out so that Nahla can spend quality time with both her parents.

She should have used a sperm donor bank instead of dealing with a real life person who wants to be involved.

OR she should have set up a custody agreement like Madonna did BEFORE she got preggers.

Why should her film schedule have anything to do with this , some of the hollywood couple have no problem with this, when some of the actresses go on location the husbands have the children. Halle wants to control when and where Nahla goes that is the problem." HALLE AND GABRIEL ARE ON THE VERGE OF THEN AGREEMENT AND A TRUCE." Halle couldn't do anything else, with all the backlash she is been having.

What a lot of rubbish, she is the one who wants control.

At least they are working on an agreement. I have to wonder if the sudden change in her behaviour has anything to do with the fact they she now has a new man in her life. Regardless, they are BOTH the parents and there is no reason for her to fight him so hard on visitation. Let's hope she put the bitterness away for now.

Let's see... She was "married" twice to black men but didn't have children with them. Then, she hooks up with a hot white man, who wouldn't marry her, but she got knocked up anyway. It seems to me like she is a typical black person always looking to have highter skinned kids, even if their white sex partners have no love or respect for them.
She made her choices, so now it's time to deal with the consequences.

I think Gabriel would have married her but Halle said in an interview she would not get married again. I honestly think she just wanted a baby and as soon as possible she left him. They tried for a baby for a long time, I think she has problems getting pregnant.

I thought cases involving custody, family court, were private, and closed to the public. How did TMZ get to be in the court room. I guess its more open in the states, then Canada.

He knew she had a crazy schedule when he hooked up with her. Buyer beware. If he didn't want to share raising a child with an actress who must go out of town to make movies, then why did he have baby with her?

Halle Berry is Beautiful and no one can take that away from her, she also spends a lot of time at a place where she helps women of domestic violence. She donates a lot of time to that and she is beautiful inside out. When he tries to demean her, he is demeaning his own daughter, because the apple does not fall to far from the tree. If he makes things bad for Halle he in return makes things bad for his own daughter. When he looks at his daughter he will always see Halle Berry in his daughter and how will he treat his daughter in the long run, just curious?

Please tell me how he demeaned her. Its was Halle who maligned him not the other way round, if you read remarks from the past he has nothing but nice things to say about her.. Yes she is beautiful, so what ,does that give her the right to lie. Why do people make up these comments and not read all of the remarks made. If the things she said about him and his treatment of his daughter was true do you think the judge wouold give him any rights. I doubt that very much.

What are you talking about, of course he wants to SHARE in raising his daughter, that is what this is all about, as I said before lots of actors and actresses are married and take turns in looking after the children. Its Halle who wants control and made it difficult for him to see his daughter. I wish people would read past interviews and remarks Halle and Gabriel made.
