Don't think of as the outer mass attracts out and the inner mass attracts in. Think of as all mass attracts all other mass. Since all the mass is within the circumference of the object the matter furthest from the center has the greatest force on it. Therefore as the mass of the object increases the force increases until the Pauli Exclusion principle is overwhelmed (a simplification) and the body collapses to a neutron star. A similar process then occurs for the collapse of a neutron star to a BH.
