It’s a sad truth that most families fight over thanksgiving, but it’s been rare that someone has left the table with a black eye. We guess Halle Berry’s family is more hardcore than ours, because her baby-daddy Gabriel Aubry had an epic Thanksgiving throwdown with her fiance Olivier Martinez! It all started when Aubrey swung by Berry’s house to drop off four-year-old daughter Nahla Ariela for the holiday.
According to witnesses, things went south when Martinez confronted Aubrey when he wouldn’t leave the driveway, and told Halle’s ex that “We have to move on.” The pair apparently exchanged insults in French and soon Aubry started swinging. “He shoved Olivier, then punched him,” a friend who was present told Us Weekly. “Olivier just defended himself.” After a violent shuffle, Martinez wrestled him to the ground and restrained him until police arrive and placed Aubrey under arrest for misdemeanor battery. He posted the $20,000 bond later that evening and was released following a trip to the ER. He is due back in court on December 13th.
Photos of the pair after the event paint a grisly picture. Aubry was seen with a nasty black eye, and reported suffered broken ribs and a potential head injury. But the injuries may not be just physical. He may end up losing custody of little Nahla, who was thankfully rushed inside the house before any of the fighting began. In the aftermath of the struggle, a judge issued an “emergency protective order” which requires Aubry to keep 100 yards away from Halle and her family until December 3rd. But a justifiably freaked Berry wants to take things a step further, and is reportedly planning on filing a restraining order against her former lover of five years. She is currently being protected by a full-time armed bodyguard.
