It’s probably safe to assume that Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and current fiance Olivier Martinez are not thankful for each other this Thanksgiving. The two men had to be hospitalized after they got into an all-out brawl Thursday morning at the Oscar winner’s Los Angeles home, reports TMZ. According to the site, it all began when Aubry dropped off his 4-year-old daughter with Berry, Nahla, back at her mother’s home. Once inside, Martinez approached the model and said, “We have to move on,” in reference to the battle between Berry and Aubry over Berry moving Nahla to France (a judge recently denied her request) – and that’s when Aubry lost it.
TMZ reports that Aubry, 36, swung at Martinez’s face, but he blocked it and was instead struck on the shoulder. Then Aubry pushed the actor to the ground, and that’s when Martinez punched him in the face. After wrestling on the ground, Martinez, 46, was able to pin Aubry to the ground and made a “citizen’s arrest” for assault.
Aubry was eventually booked for "a private persons arrest for battery," according to the LAPD and his bond was set for $20,000. The former Versace model bonded out of jail about an hour later.
According to TMZ, before he was arrested, Aubry was taken to a hospital for a broken rib, contusions to his face, and possibly a head injury. A short time later, Martinez was taken to the same hospital with a neck injury and possibly a broken hand.
As a result, a judge has issued an emergency protective order mandating that Aubry stay at least 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez, and Nahla, reports TMZ.
Just a day before the Thanksgiving Day brawl, the group all attended the same holiday party at a home in Beverly Hills, where Berry reportedly “handed off” Nahla to her father. That night, Aubry and his daughter were spotted at The Grove where they saw a movie together.
