There are about a million new pieces of Gabriel Aubry-Halle Berry news, and each media outlet is offering their own slightly tweaked version. From what I gather, Gabriel and Halle’s lawyers were in court yesterday and a deal was either worked out in court, or the lawyers had worked something out beforehand, so a deal was made and no one is really expounding on any of the particulars of said deal. Here are some highlights from the various coverage:
*TMZ says the lawyers spent “hours” together working to resolve all of the issues yesterday. The agreement which was hammered out is described as “amicable” and a source tells Page Six, “The agreement extends beyond the family law court.”
*The joint written statement: “The parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter.” Gabriel showed up to court yesterday, but Halle did not.
*Radar’s source says: “Olivier will NOT be present in the future during the times that Nahla is dropped off and picked up between Gabriel and Halle. This was very important to Gabe going forward because he feared for his safety. Gabe was supposed to have Nahla on Thanksgiving, according to their custody agreement, but Halle asked if she could have the little girl that day and Gabe said yes. He had no obligation to do so, but he had been acting in good faith and knew it meant a lot to Halle, so he did it. Gabe was absolutely blindsided by Olivier and his rage.”
* The Page Six source also says “it would not be a surprise” if Olivier Martinez lets his criminal restraining order against Gabriel Aubry expire. And Radar’s source says Gabriel won’t proceed on his restraining order against Olivier. So that was probably part of the deal too.
*Halle and her team have started leaking to Us Weekly now… maybe because People Mag is tired of her BS? Us Weekly’s Team Halle source says, “They keep playing this game and Nahla is used as a pawn. It’s her I feel sorry for. All [Halle] wants is a normal family life.” Us Weekly’s print edition also promises to expound further on Gabriel’s “anger issues” or something.
*An LAPD Commander named Andrew Smith told People Mag that the Olivier-Gabriel fight is still being investigated but “Our officers have initially concluded that Aubry was the primary instigator.”
So, is it over now? Doubtful. I think it’s wishful thinking to say that we’ll go another year before there’s another outburst or attack or abuse claim. Christmas is coming… another opportunity for drama, you know?
