Halle Berry & Gabriel Aubry Split; Jenna Says Tito Made A "Mistake"

  • Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have split up. A source says:

"Gabriel started noticing other women, and being attracted to other, and he felt it just wasn't right to stay with Halle in those circumstances. Gabriel is a really nice, decent guy and he would never cheat on her, but I suspect that he had become attracted to someone and that he felt he needed to break it off with Halle before anything developed any further." The story at the link reminds you that Halle's first marriage, to David Justice, and second marriage to Eric Benet, both "failed." In any case, it's an amicable split; they'll have joint custody of their daughter, Nahla, and Gabriel isn't asking for any money from Halle. [Radar Online]
