OSCAR-winning actress Halle Berry has tentatively settled a $2 million (GBP1.3 million) countersuit against the former owners of her home.

The CATWOMAN star filed her lawsuit with her now estranged husband ERIC BENET in June (03), claiming the former owners of the home failed to disclose it needed $1 million (GBP660,000) worth of repairs.

JONATHAN and ALISON ROTH had claimed Berry knew the property in Beverly Hills, California was sold as seen.

However, Berry's lawyer MARTIN SINGER says the case has been tentatively settled, and will be finalised in January (04).
