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.

An agreement? Let's call it what it is, Halley didn't get her way to have full custody of her daughter and now she has to share and include Gabriel in all issues concerning the baby. Who would have thought? The US justice system for once is doing the right thing by a father who wanted his rights enforced. For once justice didn't get swayed by celebrity and fancy lawyers.

Halle Berry would be screaming from the rooftops if her name was purposely left off the birth certificate or the father tried to keep her away from her child. She is a selfish shrew who defames her men to the press and paints herself as the victim. Custody should be no less than 50/50 with a gag order on Halle.

Halle is not a natural beauty. She had a nose job to make her nose look like a white person's. Before that, she had a typical nose of her ethnicity - broad and flat. Ugly. So, to become famous, she had it slimmed down to look like a white person's. And she has fake boobs. She is NOT a natural beauty at all.

I agree. She had her nose job years ago to make her nose look like a white person's nose. Before, it was a typical nose of her ethnicity - broad and flat. She is NOT a natural beauty, especially with her fake boobs too.

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.

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.

Judge Mark Juhas said to Gabriel and his lawyers, "We're making huge progress. We need to stick with it."

*****************************************************************

It sounds as though Judge Juhas isn't entertaining any of Gabriel Aubry's "over the top" demands. If so, this is probably due to the parent who is actually providing the "lion's share" of financial and custodial support for Nahla -- Halle Berry!!! It wouldn't be in the best interests of Nahla for her mother, Halle Berry to curtail her work schedule due to unnecessary constraints placed upon her by a father who isn't significantly contributing to their child's financial support. From a financial standpoint, it doesn't seem as though Gabriel Aubry was ever in the same league with Halle Berry to begin with. He really should be concentrating more on establishing a "financially" viable career rather than "baby sitting". There's nothing wrong with him having access to his child but it would be wrong for Halle Berry to pay him for putting in time with his own child. He's morally obligated to do it, anyway!!!

"It sounds as though Judge Juhas isn't entertaining any of Gabriel Aubry's "over the top" demands." What demands, have you some private information that we do not know about. And what the hell has money got to do with parental rights. Some comments on here are laughable at best. No he most likely is not in the same league, does that make him a bad parent? what world do you live in. Gabriel has worked while he was with Halle and is now working so they need to sort out a schedule, nothing more nothing less. I have no feeling about either of them but I have problems with a father not having rights to his own daughter, Halle needs to learn to share that is all.

I hope Bat Chit Crazy Halle puts her child first.
For once in her life. Gabriel gave her a beautiful daughter and he should be commended for wanting to be in his child's life.

Sunseeker -- YOU NEED TO GET A GRIP! Why does Halle Berry have "TO PAY" Gabriel Aubry to look after his OWN CHILD??? It seems as though his only interests in "custodial" rights are linked to potential "child support" benefits he may receive, PERIOD!!! If it was a simple matter of "access" to his daughter, that could easily be worked out but this is strictly about "MONEY", pure and simple! He was well aware of the demands of Halle Berry's career and didn't seem to mind as long as he benefited "professionally" and "financially" from their relationship. What's the problem now? Halle Berry actually had a "financially" viable career but Gabriel Aubry DOESN'T. It doesn't take a "rocket scientist" to figure that one out!!!

Well, they need to work things out for the sake of this child. She deserves to have both parents in her life and they both need to work it out. Put the b.s. aside and do what's best for their child.
