Halle Berry had a rough Thanksgiving after her ex, Gabriel Aubry, got into a fight with Berry’s fiancé, Olivier Martinez, which landed both men in the hospital.
The fight happened outside Halle’s home when Gabriel was dropping off Nahla. During the custodial hand-off, Olivier allegedly approached Gabriel telling him, “We have to move on.”
The details of what happened immediately after this phrase was uttered are still blurry, but eventually it led to Nahla’s dad pushing Berry’s fiancé and threw a punch towards the actor’s face.
Unfortunately, for Halle’s 36-year-old former lover Olivier Martinez was able to block the punch. After being pushed to the ground, Martinez seemed to have enough of the assault and finally delivered a powerful punch directly to the French models’ face which may have knocked him out cold.
According to TMZ, Aubry received a broken rib, contusions on his face, and possibly a more serious head injury.
Even L.A police admitted to the ABC News radio station KABC that Martinez definitely “gave back more than Gabriel dished out.”
Martinez walked away from the fight with nothing more than some scratches and swelling on his hand, and neck pains.
Gabriel’s injuries were severe enough to have him rushed to the hospital when police arrived, but the “Unfaithful” actor decided to get medical attention on his own.
Ironically both men ended up at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in L.A. in rooms that were just down the hall from each other.
Although details of what exactly set Aubry off are unclear – since the two men were apparently arguing in French – one thing was for sure, Gabriel was the one who instigated the fight.
After being treated for his injuries, the Cloud Atlas actress’s ex was taken into custody on a charged of misdemeanor battery with bail being set at $20,000.
He has since been released from behind bars but also has a protective order against him requiring him to stay at least 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez, and even Nahla until December 3, KABC reported.
The big fight came after a judge finally ruled on the ex couples custody battle over Nahla.
Ironically, the ruling was in Gabe’s favor, so it isn’t clear what had Nahla’s pop so upset in the first place.
The good news is, Halle rushed her daughter into the house immediately and called 911 once the men started arguing, preventing the 4-year-old from seeing any of the violence go down.
