Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry were back in court today, but unlike previous before a judge, they left having nearly finalized a custody settlement.

In a sign that their custody battle may end, Judge Mark Juhas told Gabriel and his camp, "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 did the same.

  • Berry Good Lookin' Woman

A settlement conference over Nahla's custody and visitation is what brought them to court. The major stumbling block has been Halle's schedule.

This takes her out of town from time to time, obviously. From what happened this AM, it looks like Halle and Gabriel are on the verge of a truce.

That's a far cry from a few short months ago, when the two clashed publicly and harshly over not just custody, but their daughter's race.

Here's hoping this is settled amicably and quickly for her sake.

Halle Berry 1, Gabriel Aubry 0.

So reads the custody scoreboard between this former couple, after a judge ruled in the actress' favor today and said she could take daughter Nahla to New York for a movie shoot.

Sources confirm to TMZ that these two started to fight over their child when Aubry attempted to block Berry from taking the two-year with her across the country to film New Year's Eve.

Halle and Nahla

With the Oscar winner in attendance, a Los Angeles judge gave her the green light bring Nahla along for the duration of her time on set.

"We are pleased the judge took the time to deal with this very imminent and important issue," Berry's attorney, Neal Hersh, said. "The judge read a great deal of paperwork and gave us time to argue."

Man. All this over the sequel to Valentine's Day?!? Perhaps if Berry and Aubry watched that atrocious romantic comedy, the entire hullabaloo could have been avoided.

The custody battle between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry is growing uglier each day.

Throughout this week, sources have claimed that the model often berated the actress in despicable terms; while Berry replied by treating her child's father like a sperm bank.

At the center of this feud, of course, is two-year old Nahla. It was her reaction to spending time with Aubry in December that reportedly raised concerns for Berry.

Former Hand Holders

"She was crying and kicking and screaming. She was hanging onto her mother's legs so she didn't have to go," a insider tells People of a an incident around Christmas when her dad arrived to pick Nahla up.

Gabriel allegedly responded by "forcing" his daughter into his car. Ever since, terms of the parents' relationship have gone from amicable to extremely sour.

Might a tabloid have gotten it right for once?

Late last year, reports surfaced that said Halle Berry had a major problem with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry dating Kim Kardashian, especially considering how the two weren't shy about appearing in public together.

Now - as Berry and Aubry exchange insults and prepare to battle for custody of daughter Nahla - a source tells People that Gabriel's fling with Kardashian really was an issue for the Oscar winner.

  • Just. Gorgeous.
  • Hot and Angry?

"Halle was upset at the idea of someone like that being in her daughter's life," the insider said of Kardashian. "She was very aggravated... She just didn't want Nahla exposed to the cameras that are undoubtedly around a reality star."

How did Berry express her anger?

Might the public be seeing a side to Gabriel Aubry that doesn't include chiseled abs and a tush on which one could bounce a quarter?

As Halle Berry and her ex prepare for a custody battle over daughter Nahla, sources claim this week that Aubry often blew up at the actress in a fit of rage, once going so far as to refer to her as the N word.

It's a shocking revelation for all except one: Page Bogart.

The investment banker dated Aubry five years ago and confirmed this kind of behavior to TMZ.

She says "Gabriel's entire motivation has always been money... I tried to warn Halle early on, but I guess she didn't want to believe it."

Bogart has even supplied us with an anger-filled voicemail left by Aubry, who she claims had a few "Latin hoochies" on the side while dating Berry. Listen to the recording above.

Those close to Gabriel Aubry say this Canadian model has been forced to take Halle Berry to court because he fears her jealous rage over his dating life will result in less time spent with the couple's daughter, Nahla.

As reps for the two sides exchange public barbs, it's been unclear why Berry says she "has serious concerns" over Aubrey's interactions with the two-year old. Until now.

Battling for her Baby

For more on Halle Berry's battle with Gabriel Aubry, read this People cover story.

In the latest issue of People, Aubry's former business partner, Stephane Bibeau, describes his ex-friend as "vindictive" and says: "Once they broke up, he became verbally threatening to Halle."

Insiders tell the magazine and TMZ these threats included the use of the "N word" and other slurs.

Explains one friend of Aubry's:

"From the beginning, Halle kind of had the upper hand because she was essentially supporting all of them for the most part. Gabriel never liked how that felt. Their split was tough because they're both so involved in raising Nahla, and neither ever wanted to give that up."

We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that's why we came together. And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here anymore. - Halle Berry on her split with Gabriel Aubry, August 2010

We may never know what took place between Berry and Aubry over the last few months, but things have gone from amicable to disastrous.

As the parents of two-year old Nahla prepare for a custody battle, the actress took a major shot at her ex yesterday, saying she has "serious concerns" about her child's "well-being" when she's around her father for any extended period of time.

Gabriel Aubry, Daughter

In a statement through his rep, Aubrey has replied:

"While Gabriel is disappointed in Halle’s decision to falsely malign him publicly and for her own purposes, he refuses to be pulled into her dispute over a canceled film production. Gabriel also refuses to air their issues in the press as he believes this may ultimately harm their daughter. The fact is that Gabriel is a caring father who shares custody of Nahla."

Aubry claims Berry turned against him once he began dating other people. At the moment, it's unclear from where Berry's beef with her ex stems.

It's come to this for Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry: the former couple, who appeared to split so peacefully last year, will soon head to court to sort out a custody arrangement over daughter Nahla.

Indications of a sour relationship kicked off in late December, when Aubry asked a judge to legally declare him the two-year old's father.

About a week ago, meanwhile, sources revealed that the Canadian model was legitimately worried that Berry would deny him access to their child. The insider cited Halle's rage over Aubry's most recent flings as a basis for this concern.

Mother and Nahla

Now, Berry has dropped out of the movie New Year's Eve, as she prepares for a long battle in court with her past lover. Says her rep:

"She has attempted to resolve these custody issues amicably with her daughter’s father, Gabriel Aubry, directly, but given his lack of cooperation, Halle has no choice but to seek swift judicial intervention."

It's unclear what options are on the table - shared custody? full custody? - but this rep makes it sound like Berry has little intention of letting Aubry get remotely close to Nahla.

"Halle has serious concerns for her daughter's well-being while in the care of her father for any extended period of time and is prepared to take all necessary steps to protect her," he says.

Apparently, there's a reason why Gabriel Aubry recently panicked over his paternity.

The Canadian model filed a motion on December 30 to be officially, legally declared the father of Nahla, the two-year old daughter he shares with Halle Berry. Insiders tell Radar Online his concern over custody status is based on a series of explosive fights with his ex.

"Whenever Gabriel doesn't do exactly what Halle tells him to do, or if he does something she doesn't approve of or like, she goes crazy on him, screaming and shouting," the source says.

Berry's Boobs

Referring to Berry as someone with a "nasty temper," this friend says things grew more heated than ever near the end of the year, as Aubry was spotted out in public with Kim Kardashian and others.

"Halle was absolutely furious and had a complete melt-down. She basically gave him an ultimatum: choose between dating other women and carrying on being on her good side... in the end he just got sick of being bossed around and told what to do by his ex-girlfriend."

Last summer, Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry showed the world how to break up in a mature, classy manner.

But might things now be turning ugly?

Nahla Photo

The Canadian model made a surprise legal move this week, filing documents in Los Angeles Superior Court that ask a judge to officially declare him the father of the couple's two-year old girl, Nahla. It may be the first step in a prolonged custody battle between the exes.

Prior to this move, Berry and Aubry had agreed to level the legal system out of their arrangements with Nahla. For her sake, let's hope everything remains civil.

And let's pray Kim Kardashian never gets her hands on that adorable tyke.
