There was no “happy” Thanksgiving for Halle Berry’s family last week. The trouble began when Gabriel Aubry, Berry’s ex who she shares daughter Nahla with, arrived at Berry’s LA home to drop their daughter off.
Apparently, words were exchanged with Halle’s fiance Olivier Martinez and all of a sudden, punches were being thrown!
Both men ended up in the emergency room with Aubry suffering contusions to his face and a broken rib. Martinez’s injuries were equally cringe-worthy—an injured neck and a broken hand.
What caused the men to go at each other like wild apes? It’s being alleged that Martinez provoked Aubry about custody of Nahla and Aubry lost it.
Berry immediately applied for (and was granted) an emergency restraining order against Aubry, banning him from coming within 300 feet of her family.
Score one for Berry. She recently lost a court battle to move Nahla to Paris, citing that Aubry was unfit to raise their daughter because of his massive temper. Aubry will now face criminal charges stemming from the fight and the citizen’s arrest Martinez made at the home.
Attorney Diana Mercer reveals that the restraining order and criminal charges could prevent Aubry from having joint custody of any kind.
Where things go now is anyone’s guess. We hope the couple can make peace for the Christmas holiday for their daughter’s sake.
