Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry Settle Everything

That did not take long. Once Halle Berry got Olivier Martinez to do her bidding, she quickly settled all the child custody matters with Gabirel Aubry in court yesterday. The two sides released a statement that said everything had been resolved and no other statements would be forthcoming. From what I understand, Gabriel will allow Olivier to beat him once every few months and Halle will get to watch and otherwise all things remain the same. That really did settle quickly. You got the feeling that things would drag out another year, but maybe Halle is tired of spending millions of dollars fighting Gabriel when that money could just go to Nahla.

Perhaps she's smarter than I thought.

Why can't I bring myself to give a shit about these people? I mean other than commenting on this story...

MISCH said...

Halle saw public opinion going against her, she must have thought she really got Gabe this time and then total shock when it backfired.
Did you see the photo's of Halle and Oliver coming from the lawyers office...she wouldn't look at him...
Tick Tock....

LottaColada said...

It's about time they work together instead of shoving each other aside for the sake of winning a court order.

mikey said...

MISCH, I totally agree. She was taken by surprise by the GA support - only she would have thought she'd come out on top of this one. The missing security footage was very damaging to her, and the photos of GA's face vs. OM hand finished it.

I'm tired of these peoples' antics.

Well, thank GOD, now I can sleep at night.

I wouldn't necessarily assume that Halle got what she wanted in this dispute.

It's possible when she saw the pictures of Gabriel and realized that most people were on his side, reality set in. And as much as she can't stand him, he is still her daughter's father, and a good one it seems.

And just maybe, it dawned on her that the beatdown went too far, and Olivier came very close to killing Gabriel. Don't know if she could recover from that (the court of public opinion).

lc said...

Yep, no matter what 'celebrities' claim, I think they read things about themselves. I do think they go on sites like this and twitter and what have you. Halle saw her popularity going down the drain. I turned a Loreal commercial off because she was in it.

urban chaos said...

I agree this is Halle worried about her bottom line- ie: $$$ and earning potential.

yodelay said...

I don't think she realized anything about Gabriel, only that her own image took a beating. She'll still continue to make it as difficult as possible for him to be in Nahla's life because she is ugly, petty, and vindictive.

Oh yeah, and Cray Cray (thanks @Sugar)

Feisty said...

She doesn't care if the money goes to Nahla, be real.

Somebody got through to her somehow that she should drop this fast. I'm just interested in who did that and how, because no one has seemed to reign her in before.

There must be some evidence that would get Nahla removed from her custody if this went to CPS. That's the only explanation.

Hazeldazel said...

@surfer, I dunno she seemed to recover just fine from when she killed that one chick. *shrugs* I can't see how being merely an accessory to a killing would be any worse.

Speaking as one who grew up in a nasty baby mama drama (my mom was a cougar and my dad was a spoilt mamas boy) I just wish people who think before bringing a child into the world. Think.things like, "Do I want to have this person in my life for 18 years?" Because when you bring a child into it, you're going to have to deal with each other, duh! Forgive my bitterness but I have two of the most immature adults in the world for parents. Even in their 60s/70s they're both still acting like they're in junior high--and that's on a good day.

Rox (used to be Roxxx) said...

Mitch, Mikey, Surfer,IC
Agree with you guys; the public has been mainly Team Gabe on this, me included.

I've felt so sorry for the guy, it really seems as though Halle has done everything she can to try and cut him out of Nahla's life, which to me is all kinds of wrong. Gabe seems to care and love his daughter very much, I don't blame him for fighting for the right to be part of her life, long that may continue.

The Black Cat said...

I must watch Boomerang sometime soon to remind myself why the world fell in love with Halle.

dia papaya said...

lc - me too! I saw that commercial and it made my stomach churn. I wouldn't be surprised if Halle started losing some of those previous endorsement contracts soon. I hope we see Gabe's face everywhere after he recovers. That would be the best revenge!

dia papaya said...

Maybe Enty is her lawyer ;) Smacked some bacon sense into her!!!

Roman Holiday said...

Oh Enty, you are a card!!!

chopchop said...

She was on Sesame Street the other day and she looked terrible. She looked gaunt and it looked like she was still wearing last night's makeup. It made me think for sure she is "heroin mom".

Aoife said...

As has been said Halle's agent saw that public opinion was strongly against his/her client and talked sense to her. All those endorsements, the cover of the Fall NY Times Style Magazine would dry up quickly if the public sees her as bat shit crazy.

I don't think she gives a f**k about what Olivier suffered. I think she cares more about the $$$'s. I have to go look for the pictures of her coming out of the lawyer's office. They sound, uh, interesting.

Aoife said...

Of course I meant to say she cares less about what Gabriel suffered. It's one of those days.

figgy said...

Caring about Nahla? Puh-leez. Her PR team sat her down and spelled it out: "No one is going to want to watch you in anything if you don't clean this up immediately. Public opinion is against you." That's the only thing a narcissist like her would care about.

Happy Chocolatini said...

I was wondering how long it would take her to figure out that people were not on her side. Who's going to want to see a movie with her in it now?

Aoife said...

Halle has been looking rather hard of late. And she's dressing wayyyy too young on the red carpets I've seen her on of late.

She's going to have to really do some acting in her next project to get me to pay money to see her again.

smash said...

That mans beautiful face!!!! I hope he heals ok.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Wonder if Hallie - or her management - received a phone call from one of the companies whose products she endorses. Something along the lines of "make this go away, or we will terminate your contract."

But those photos of Gabriel's beaten face will be on the Internet forever.

Wonder what he got out of the settlement. Dismissal of the charges that could have resulted in his deportation? Had to be something he really wanted, because he had the upper hand based on both public opinion and the evidence.

Cheryl said...

@dia-I want to smack some bacon sense into somebody!

Layna Day said...

Halle overreached. That beatdown of Gabriel was too much. Even if you think he started the fight, it's clear that Olivier did the most damage. Olivier broke his hand from hitting Gabriel so hard. And for what? Halle's honor?

Halle's career was hanging by a thread before this drama and it's clear that someone got to her and told her to settle this mess ASAP. She's already seen as two short of a six-pack. Now, both she and Olivier look bat-guano crazy. Couple that with her approaching 50 and Halle's time as a big star has pretty much passed unless she overhauls her image. She doesn't want to lose her Revlon and fragrance contracts. She's going have to do a lot to get passed this one.

JoElla said...

Nutty, I wonder also. She has a huge contract with Revlon, and they don't like messy things.

Speaking of Revlon, she is the face of the new eye shadow palettes they have coming out. Usually her ads are beautiful, but this one, well.. Lets just say the purple quad they used really amp'd up the cray look she has.
But in a weird way, it goes hand and hand with her actual personality.

I am a makeup junkie, love it high end to low end, and even though I have been curious about the palettes, I just shook my head, and walked away.
So if me the beauty/makeup junkie is turned off by her face on the ad, I am imagine many more would do the same.

Image is everything to cosmetic companies. And they know that even a whiff of bad press will kill a product. So her ass on the line and her contract on the line, and a huge thump on the head from Revlon finally7 reigned in Crazy Halle.

JMO of course.

Miss Zappa said...

I dont fully have the history on this couple but why is she so hateful to Gabriel? Until I know more I am tottaly on his side....

Worstcompanytoworkfor said...

The 2 of them are so cute together.

Too bad it didn't work out.

Me said...

being in a custody battle is an emotional mine field. my attorney told me more than once than i was about as calm a client as she had ever had, and we keep in touch as friends. BUT, i remember one day when i thought i would have a breakdown and i was screaming at her on the phone. screaming. it was as if my life was going to end based on some stupid fucking judge, who knew exactly jack squat about our situation. maybe she just couldnt do it anymore.

it was my ex who suddenly wantesd to settle things. his new beard was pregnant and they wanted to get married. i think is halle is a bit old for that, but i guess ita possible.

Mango said...

@ Miss Zappa - I dunno. Halle's relationships seem to end badly. REALLY badly. She always seems to end up mortal enemies with her exes. Once or maybe even twice? Okay. EVERY SINGLE TIME? Indicative of something wrong in Halle Berry's pretty li'l head.

Alma said...

Custody issues do feel like life and death. It feels like you are gambling with your child.

Alma said...

Hey i didnt finish! My big thumb keeps messing up today. This does seem like a face-saving move. I doubt there was any actual regret because people (my ignorant ass included) always always feel they are %100 right and other party is %100 wrong. I bet she or olivier might have even had to pay for any lost days work for aubry. Dude is a model. I would have asked them to pay in an effort to at least discourage future beatdowns.

News said...

I have never seen any custody case go to almost kill one parent. Actually Gabriel almost died and lost conscience, i mean, what were those monsters thinking?

I Know Olivier is a boxer and his father too, but there is a limit in life, don't beat to kill!

I could never buy a product she endorses or even watch her films again, she is the worst case I have ever heard of, horrible bitch.

Miss Zappa said...

@Mango...hmmm.It will be interesting to see what happens WHEN Oliver and her split..lol.Btw this is my first day actually posting here.I started reading the site and the comments and you guys are the best part..it has gotten me through some very boring long nights post surgery..now i am hooked :)

auntliddy said...

Cl- hugs. Sorry your parents are assholes. We love ya!

goes in circles said...

If Oliver is a trained boxer aren't his hands considered lethal weapons?
It seems I've heard that before.
Time to google.

auntliddy said...

Welcome mszappa! I think they are three settled because they all had something to lose. Om and ga may hv been deported or charged with assault, and as everyone here said her pr prople were prob like lets just make this go away asap. And i think she was amazed at public support for Gabe, because her oh poor little me baloney usually works so well. So now she will prob try the i did it for my daughter malarky now. I dont hate her at all, still think shes beautiful and talented, but this victim shit has to stop.

Six Chick said...

bitch is backpedalling no fucker believes her bullshit anymore her poor fucking me act is over

Lioness70 said...

She had the cover and story in October's InStyle. She looked angry and hard in all the pics. (Gift subscription from my mom - I'd never buy this rag otherwise.)

Totally agree that this is all about her image. I think it may be irreparably damaged. That's what she deserves for her cray cray antics. Stupid bitch.

Jennmcn said...

I don't think Halle cared about the money going to Nahla as much as conserving her money as she is getting older, crazier and less bankable. How's that for a run on sentence? She's a freaking piece of work, she used Gabriel as a sperm donor.

PS said...

I am with Nutty. I wonder how much they had to give Gabriel, and my guess is it involves more than money. The public support on his behalf was so overwhelming, and those pictures were grizzly. Also, there's been no confirmation Olivier actually broke his hand - I think it's all been "may have." The man could have killed Gabriel, and he certainly was relentless in trying to destroy the father's livelihood by beating his model face to a pulp. The fact that Gabriel was knocked unconscience is deplorable and means that brain damage was absolutely potential. That is SICK. I bet Gabriel is going to get more time with Nahla and better time - like primo weekends and holidays. A nanny will always handle hand-offs, and the subject of anyone ever moving anywhere is forever off table. Also, just because there is no formal restraining order, I have no doubt there is a civil agreement in place that Olivier may not come within 50 feet of Gabriel, or else Halle either surrenders custody or pays him every cent she has. Gabriel doesn't need their money - he's wealthy in his own right and not extravagant. I don't think he'd walk away from this for just a payout. His heart is too in the right place in this whole thing. He's always made it about Nahla and putting her first, and that includes never once uttering a negative word about Berry, despite her blabbing to the press anonymously and not so anonymously. I, for one, will never buy a product that psycho witch endorses nor see an inch of film with her in it. So many mothers suffer from fathers walking out and leaving the children, so many children suffer from Dads abandoning them, not caring, coming and going, never making them important. Here's man SHE left and who just wants to father his kid, be around, love his daughter, and Helly Berry's done EVERYTHING to make that impossible. I hate her with a passion on behalf of real struggling single mothers and suffering abandoned kids everywhere.

Stephanie said...

There was talk about Gabriel being deported because of the charges, but isn't Olivier in the same citizenship boat? I wonder if that had something to do with her sudden willingness to negotiate. If Gabriel was going to obtain the restraining order as a precursor to pressing charges, Olivier could have been deported, too, I'd imagine.

I also agree that Halle's people likely sat her down and told her that her stock was plummeting. Those photos were the nail in the coffin of her ability to publicly persecute him, they make her and her bat-shit boyfriend look like sociopaths.
