Halle Berry didn't get dumped by model Gabriel Aubry; rather their split happened several months ago and it was the actress who initiated it, according to a source.
"She kicked him out months ago because he wasn't able to pull his weight in the relationship and she wanted to move on," a source close to the former couple told People magazine.
"They're very amicable in healthy ways because of their child," added the source referring to the couple's 2-year-old daughter Nahla.
"Her main concern is for the health and happiness of her daughter," the source added.
As for the so-called "mystery guy" Berry was photographed holding hands with in New York recently, "they're old friends," said the source.
"The photographers were chasing them so he just instinctively grabbed her hand," the source added.
Meanwhile, a representative for Berry confirms to the magazine that she and Aubry "have been split for some time, but remain friends and committed parents to their daughter."
