After five years together, Aubry reportedly ended things because he didn't feel it was working anymore. Sources say the couple has already worked out short-term custody arrangements for their two-year-old daughter Nahla.
The source says the pair actually broke up several months ago because Gabriel was attracted to someone else but didn't want to cheat on Halle.
"When they were first together the nine-year age difference between them didn't phase him, she was the most beautiful woman he had ever dated and he was totally in love. But as time went on he started feeling it more and more. Also, 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."
Halle was previously married to a wife beater and a sex fiend, so Gabriel was being nice by dumping her now before he pulled a Tiger Woods on her.
The pair are in the midst of working out a permanent custody and financial agreement.
"Halle was terrified that Gabriel would go after her money," the source said. "But he's a decent and proud guy and that's just not his style. Gabriel's main concern was custody of Nahla, he loves that little girl more than anything, and wanted 50-50 joint physical custody of her, which Halle agreed to.
"Financially, Gabriel isn't in the league of Halle, but he still earns a decent amount from his modeling career, in the region of $700,000 per year, so he's comfortable and he didn't want a dime from Halle. "All Gabriel has asked for is the house they own together in Canada. Halle put the full deposit down on the house but Gabriel has made every one of the payments since.
"Halle agreed right away. As much as it can be it's been an amicable split. They both traveled a lot for work anyway, so they were used to spending time apart for long periods, but I think Halle has taken it pretty badly, she truly loved Gabriel and thought she had found the one."
So the next time you get dumped, remember: Even the most beautiful women in the world have their hearts broken.
