While fans may have felt that news of the split between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry came suddenly and out of nowhere, insiders are saying that that the beautiful couple has been done for quite some time now -- and that it was Berry who did the dumping.
"She kicked him out months ago because he wasn't able to pull his weight in the relationship and she wanted to move on," a source close to tell couple has told People.
The Oscar winner's rep concurred, saying, "Berry and Aubry split some time ago, but remain close friends and committed parents to their daughter [Nahla, 2]."
Aubry released a statement Friday, expressing his feelings over the end of the five-year relationship.
“While I will not comment on all of the wild inaccuracies being speculated about in the media, I am sad to say that Halle and I have decided together to separate at this time," the model told Access Hollywood. "She is, and will forever be, one of the most special and beautiful people that I have ever known, and I am certain that we will continue to have only love and respect for one another."
As for the new man Halle was photographed holding hands with over the weekend in NYC, there's not much to buzz about. "They’re old friends," a pal of the actress says. "The photographers were chasing them so he just instinctively grabbed her hand."
