Halle Berry Speaks Out on Custody Battle

The actress insists there's no beef between her and ex Gabriel Aubrey and says they both want what's best for their daughter

Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry may be taking legal action to map out custody parameters for their daughter Nahla, but the actress insists there's nothing nasty going on between her and her ex.

"When there's a child involved, it's a relief when you can resolve things in a good way," the Oscar winner told Extra. "Our issues were never about fighting for her."

Berry, 44, says that neither party has any intention of trying to keep the other from their daughter.

"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," she explained. "We need a court and a judge to help us work out some of the delicate issues."

From the outside, it seemed that things were getting heated between the actress and the 34-year-old model -- and Berry even had to give up a few jobs due to the custody battle. But she swears things are all good between her daughter's parents.

"I'm so happy we've arrived at that place -- because for her sake, this is the best way," she said. "We both love her more than life."

We hope that things are as peachy as Berry makes it sound. But we have to wonder: If there were really no hard feelings between the exes, couldn't they come to some friendly agreements without all of the legal hoopla?
