Lawyers for Halle Berry and her ex Gabriel Aubry came to an agreement in family court Thursday after fighting over custody of their 4-year-old daughter Nahla.

TMZ reports that Berry attorney Blair Berk held up a handwritten sign in the hallway outside the Los Angeles County courtroom that read: "From all counsel, the parties have reached an amicable agreement. There will be no further statements regarding this matter."

The deal comes a week after Aubry was arrested in Berry's driveway after a fist fight with Berry's current fiance Olivier Martinez on Thanksgiving Day.

Martinez accused Aubry of battery but Aubry turned around a filed a restraining order against Martinez, claiming he started the fight. Berry also filed a restraining order against Aubry. A judge granted Berry a temporary order requiring Aubry 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla but the order expired on Tuesday.

Aubry and Berry have been embroiled in a bitter custody dispute over their daughter Nahla since their relationship ended in 2010. They currently have a shared custody agreement and Berry recently lost a request to move to Paris with Nahla.

According to CNN, a judge said that Berry could not take her daughter to Paris unless Aubry went with them.

In a statement printed by CNN, Aubry said "While he was attacking me physically, Mr. Martinez said to me in an aggressive and threatening voice, 'You cost us $3 million. When you see the judge, you're going to tell him you're going to Paris or I'm going to kill you. You're going to Paris, you're going to get your 20 grand a month in child support. From now on you're going to do drop-offs on the street.'"

TMZ reports that neither Berry nor Martinez were in court on Thursday but Aubry did sit in on the negotiations wearing sunglasses to hide his bruises from the fight.
