Halle Berry had a dramatic Thanksgiving Day yesterday after her ex Gabriel Aubry showed up at her house and got into a fistfight with Olivier Martinez.
37-year-old Aubry has a daughter with Berry, Nahla, and they’ve been involved in a nasty custody battle for years. He came by on Thanksgiving to drop off 4-year-old Nahla, and the two men started “trash-talking in French,” before it escalated into a full-blown fight.
Witnesses gave a play-by-play to TMZ:
Gabriel then pushed Olivier and threw a punch at his face, but Olivier blocked it and the punch struck him in the shoulder instead. We’re told Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, and Olivier cold-cocked him in the face, and a struggle ensued, ending with Olivier pinning Gabriel to the ground.
They were both taken to the hospital, Aubry had fractured ribs and bruises to his face and Martinez, 46, injured his hand and neck. Aubry was treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center emergency room, and was later booked. Martinez went to the same emergency room a few hours later.
Aubry’s set to appear in court Dec. 13 after being booked on a misdemeanor investigation of battery charge. He was released on a $20,000 bail around 6:30pm. Thankfully Nahla was inside at the time of the fight, and didn’t witness it.
A judge-issued emergency protective order against Aubry requires him to be at least 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla until Dec. 3
