PREVIOUSLY:
The nasty custody battle between Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry may have finally come to an end.

RadarOnline.com reports that Aubry has dropped his suit for custody and spousal support from ex-girlfriend Berry. He sued in December for partial custody of their daughter, Nahla, and since, a war of words between the two has turned uglier and uglier.

Berry dropped out of filming the movie "New Year's Eve" at the end of January, and soon accusations that Aubry sent abusive text messages and that Nahla was "terrified" of him were floated from her camp.

Then, rumors of an Aubry freakout when Nahla was referred to as racially black brought the feud into new, even nastier territory. Berry addressed the issue when she said that, citing slavery rules, Nahla, who is biracial, is in fact black.

Radar says that a source told them that, "Gabriel and Halle have spoken to each other and have committed to try and make things work, without the courts - Gabe's decision to drop his case is his way of showing Halle he's prepared to take a leap of faith and trust her once again."

Earlier in the day, TMZ reported that Berry was in a Los Angeles court with her lawyer, though why she was there was unclear.

Radar says that they've seen the court documents dismissing the suit, and developments will continue. For more, click over to RadarOnline.com.
