After a long court battle and an ugly fistfight outside her house, Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry appear to have settled their key differences over custody of 4 ½-year-old daughter Nahla – for now.
"The parties have reached an amicable agreement," read a written statement held up by attorney Blair Berk, who represents Berry, after a hearing Thursday in Los Angeles. "There will be no further statements regarding this matter."
Aubry, wearing a black sport coat with dark sunglasses to mask his bruised face, was present, but Berry and her fiancé Olivier Martinez did not attend.
Just exactly what they agreed to – earlier issues ranged from residency to restraining orders – wasn't known.

The signs of Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez's Thanksgiving brawl don't appear to be going away anytime soon.
Halle Berry's fiancé, Martinez, was photographed in L.A. Tuesday sporting a bandage and brace on his injured right hand.
Martinez, 46, reportedly punched Berry's ex boyfriend Aubry during a handoff of Aubry and Berry's 4½-year-old daughter, Nahla. Aubry, 37, was arrested after the exchange and has been photographed since the incident with a badly bruised face (see photo).

Gabriel Aubry has come back swinging – this time in court papers.
Halle Berry's ex alleges that it was her fiancé Olivier Martinez who started their Thanksgiving Day fight, unleashing profanities and threats as well as fists.
Aubry claims that during their scrape Olivier said, "You cost us $3 million. When you see the judge, you're going to tell him you're going to Paris or I'm going to kill you."
Aubry has been tangling in court with Berry over her request to move with their 4½-year-old daughter Nahla to France, where Martinez is a citizen. The judge recently ruled against Berry.
The allegations are contained in Aubry's application for a restraining order against Martinez, which the court granted. Attached to his application were gruesome photos of Aubry's injuries, including a black eye and cuts and bruises to his face.

It doesn't look like it'll be bon voyage for Halle Berry and her daughter, at least not permanently.
A judge in Los Angeles on Friday denied the actress's request to move from Los Angeles to France with 4½-year-old daughter Nahla, according to TMZ.
Nahla's father Gabriel Aubry, a Canadian actor and model who works primarily in L.A., objected to the move.
Berry, who is engaged to actor Olivier Martinez, has maintained that France is a safer place for her to raise her daughter, noting stronger paparazzi laws.

Halle Berry, mother to 4-year-old daughter Nahla with Gabriel Aubry, reportedly has some stiff child-support payments ahead of her.
After a court appearance earlier this week, Berry, 45, has been ordered to pay Aubry $20,000 a month, which adds up to nearly a quarter of a million dollars a year, reports TMZ.com.
Berry and Aubry, a French-Canadian model, split in April 2010 and have been locked in a custody battle over Nahla.

Rarely one to turn down a night out, Gerard Butler recently came out to Caulfield's restaurant in Beverly Hills to celebrate the joint birthday of the eatery's owner Ron Marino, Thompson Hotel owner Jason Pomeranc and Smallville star Tom Welling.
Stepping out solo, the ladies' man arrived shortly after Gabriel Aubry showed up. Both men were just in time for the dinner portion of the bash, which started around 8 p.m. and ended at 2 a.m.
The two men didn't sit together or interact much, but the 50-person party also included Entourage cast mates Jerry Ferrara and Emmanuelle Chriqui, along with Harry Morton and Peter Gallagher.
"Gabriel was looking pretty sharp in a suit," a partygoer tells PEOPLE. "The female guests were chit-chatting all night, trying to find out his [relationship] 'status.' "

It appears the worst might be over for Oscar-winner Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry, who have recently been engaged in a custody battle over their daughter Nahla, 3.
"When there's a child involved, it's a relief when you can resolve things in a good way," the actress, who revealed that court proceedings have gone well without detailing the exact agreement, tells Extra.
"Our issues were never about fighting for her," Berry says of Nahla. "We both know a child needs both her parents. But what I want to say about it is sometimes, as a couple, you reach an impasse. We needed a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues, and I'm so happy we've arrived at that place – because for her sake, this is the best way. We both love her more than life."

An ongoing custody battle with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry over their daughter Nahla isn't stopping Halle Berry from earning some positive attention.
The actress, 44, appeared upbeat when she accepted the Lacoste Spotlight Award at the Costume Designers Guild Awards on Tuesday night at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills.
Introduced by pal Samuel L. Jackson, Berry gave an energetic acceptance speech full of laughs and smiles, following a montage that showcased the actress's versatility in a selection of various roles over the span of her career.
"Halle looked radiant and seemed giddy on stage," an onlooker tells PEOPLE of Berry, clad in an Elie Saab gown. "She stuck completely on topic of the event and didn't mention anything about her personal life, but she had a happy aura. She even skipped away from the podium when her speech was done, and gave Samuel L. Jackson a big hug."

Halle Berry made her first appearance Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court in her custody dispute with ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
Berry, wearing a gray striped suit, did not testify in the closed-door hearing. Aubry was not there, but was represented by his lawyers.
The hearing centered on whether Berry could take their daughter Nahla, who turns 3 next month, to New York so the actress could film for a role for New Year's Eve, which Aubry was against, according to TMZ.
