About a month ago, a judge sided with Gabriel Aubry, and ruled that Halle Berry could not take their daughter and move to France. Gabriel argued (and rightfully so) that he would never get to see his daughter anymore, and Halle argued that she needed to get Nahla out of the country for safety purposed. The judge saw things Gabriel’s way, and ordered Halle to stay in the country.
Well, obviously the tension is at a breaking point, because when Gabriel turned up at Halle’s home on Thanksgiving to drop their daughter off, things went horribly wrong. Olivier Martinez, Halle’s current fiance, came outside to “talk” to Gabriel, and the two ended up in a fist-fight. Police were called, and Gabriel was arrested. The fight got so bad that both Gabriel and Olivier had to be seen at a local hospital.
According to TMZ, Gabriel was dropping Nahla off, when Olivier approached his car and told him, “We have to move on.” According to sources, Gabriel then pushed Olivier, and threw a punch at his face. Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, and Olivier punched Gabriel in the face, and ultimately pinning him to the ground. Apparently, things got so bad Gabriel suffered a broken rib, cuts to his face, and possibly a more serious head injury. Olivier reportedly broke his hand, and suffered neck injuries in the fight. Rumor has it Gabriel was knocked unconscious during the fight.
Here’s more from TMZ:
Police were called and Olivier made a citizen’s arrest for battery against Gabriel. Gabriel was escorted to the ER and, ironically, Olivier went to the same ER an hour later. The two were just down the hall from each other.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … a judge has issued an emergency protective order, which requires Gabriel to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and Nahla.
And finally, there’s this … specifics about the argument between Gabriel and Olivier are sketchy because they were trash talking each other in French.
It’s pretty shocking — considering Gabriel was out with Nahla just last night for a movie date at the Grove.
5:55 PM PT — Gabriel has been booked for misdemeanor battery. According to his booking sheet, he’s listed as 6’2″ and 180 pounds. He’s still in custody and his bail has been set at $20,000.
5:30 PM PT — Sources tell TMZ … when Gabriel and Olivier started going at it, Halle rushed Nahla inside the house so she missed the brutality.
3:35 PM PT — Gabriel has been released from the hospital and is currently at an L.A. jail where he is being booked. Olivier has also left the hospital and has returned to Halle’s home.
Halle released a statement to People Magazine, and said “Gabriel attacked Olivier and Olivier defended himself.” Gabriel was arrested, and bail was set at $20,000, but I’m sure he made bail and is already out.
The latest as of today, is that Halle Berry is seeking a permanent restraining order against Gabriel.
Following an explosive brawl between fiance Olivier Martinez and ex Gabriel Aubry on Thanksgiving Day, Berry is seeking a restraining order on Aubry, effective immediately, TMZ reports.
The “Cloud Atlas” actress, 46, will appear in court early this week to argue for an extension of the emergency protection order a judge placed on Aubry over the weekend. The initial order required that Aubry stay 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and 4-year-old Nahla, but expires Tuesday.
If granted, the male model would not have rights to see his daughter for an indefinite amount of time.
Sources tell the gossip site that Berry was shocked that her ex would become violent in front of their young daughter, and will likely argue that Aubry is not equipped to be a good role model and father to Nahla.
