Halle Berry's Fiance and Ex-Boyfriend Got Into a Brawl In Her Driveway On Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is SUPPOSED to be the time for passive-aggressive fights, not ACTUAL fights. Totally different story at HALLE BERRY'S house. On Thanksgiving morning, Halle's ex-boyfriend, GABRIEL AUBRY, was at her house in West Hollywood, California to give Halle their four-year-old daughter Nahla for the weekend. He started arguing with Halle's current fiancé, OLIVIER MARTINEZ, in the driveway, and then it got VIOLENT.
According to the police, Gabriel took a swing at Olivier. He probably did NOT know that Olivier's father was a professional boxer and Olivier used to do some competitive boxing himself. So Olivier easily took him down and ended up landing a few good shots to Gabriel's face and body. Gabriel went to the hospital with a broken rib, some bruises on his face, and a possible head injury.
Olivier also went to the SAME hospital with a possible broken hand and some neck injuries. They were treated down the hall from each other, but nothing went down at the hospital. Gabriel was arrested for misdemeanor battery. He claims Olivier started the fight and if the cops look at the footage from Halle's security tapes they'll see HE was the victim. Halle rushed Nahla into the house before the fighting started, so both of them missed the violence.
A judge granted a temporary protective order against Gabriel, which requires him to stay 100 yards away from Halle, their daughter, and Olivier. That expires tomorrow, and Halle is looking for an indefinite extension. Halle and Gabriel have been in a custody battle for Nahla ever since they broke up in April of 2010. Halle has been engaged to Olivier for about a year.
