It’s official: The love affair between Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry is no more.
The Canadian model has confirmed that he and the Oscar-winning screen stunner have called time on their four and a half year romance after reports about the split surfaced online on Friday.
In a statement released to Access Hollywood through his Wilihemina Modeling Agency, Gabriel insists the breakup is amicable, and denied the nine-year age gap between him and 43-year-old Halle was a factor. Aubry is believed to have ended the relationship with the Monster’s Ball actress because they spent so much time apart.
“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. 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,” the statement read.
Since the couple split a few months ago, Gabriel, 34, and Oscar winning actress Halle have been working to resolve their finances and make arrangements for their two-year-old daughter, Nahla
“We have been blessed with the most amazing daughter in the world, and her happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us. Please respect our privacy during this very difficult time,” Gabriel added.
