"It's a black hole in a greater black hole."

Are you sure it's not a pulsar inside an asteroid?

"As black holes devour other black holes they grow and the gravity within increases. But there must be a limit to gravity"

Well, sure. The gravity is directly proportional to the objects mass. Add two black holes together and the gravity is proportional to the sum of their masses.

"But there must be a limit to gravity just like velocity."

No, the limit to gravity must be the sum of all the mass in the universe. There's no magic cutoff like the speed of light.

"Everything in the black hole should begin to conform to the gravity limit. Anything trying to exceed the gravity limit would cause and anti gravity to form around it."

You mean everything in the black hole should conform to the gravity limit you just invented for no apparent reason? Is Xenu involved?
