Halle Berry and ex Aubry settled custody battle 'to avoid court psych tests'
Halle Berry and ex Gabriel Aubry quietly and amicably reached an agreement after a brutal Thanksgiving fight and long custody battle, because neither side wanted to endure court appointed psych tests, according to an insider.
Details of the agreement have not been revealed, but the insider told FOX 411 psych tests that are typically required in these circumstances, and neither side wanted deal with that.
"The deal allows them to share custody for now and avoid the psych tests etc. But the next time something happens they could both loose temporary custody, so it is a risky deal," the source said.
"But also Aubry does have a criminal liability (stemming from the Thanksgiving Day fight) and he doesn't want to lose the 20,000 dollars a month he gets from Halle (in child support) so he was motivated to strike a deal as well," the source added.
Though the deal spared them from some of the legal drama, they will still be monitored by family court, and a court-designated legal representative for the child is still likely.
