Everyone in this situation is most likely crazy as fuck, so it’s really no surprise that while most people in America were celebrating Thanksgiving day with the normal coping mechanisms of turkey and vodka to deal the drunk Uncle in the family, Halle Berry’s house kicked it up a notch.
According to TMZ, things went to a Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! level when Halle’s ex, Gabriel Aubry, showed up at Halle and fiance Olivier Martinez’s LA mansion Thursday to drop off daughter Nahla for custody exchange. Sources say Olivier approached Gabriel and told him ‘We have to move on” and Gabriel lost it and threw a punch. Instead of hitting Olivier in the face, but Olivier ducked it and Gabby hit his shoulder instead. The confrontation escalated and ended up with Olivier pinning Gabby to the ground and making then making a citizen’s arrest.
Witnesses claim Halle was able to sweep little Nahla inside the house, and that Nahla didn’t see any of the scuffle.
Both Olivier and Gabriel were hospitalized.
TMZ has the run down like this:
In the struggle, Gabriel suffered a broken rib, contusions on his face, and possibly a more serious head injury. Olivier may have broken his hand and suffered neck injuries as well. There are conflicting accounts as to whether Gabriel was rendered unconscious in the fight.
Upon release from the hospital, Aubry was arrested for misdemeanor battery and bail was set at $20k. As a result of the incident, an emergency protective order was issued by a judge against Aubry, mandating he stay at least 100 years away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla.
Personally, I’m very skeptical about the true sequence of events. A judge had recently denied Halle’s request to move Nahla to France permanently, and I’m sure she and Olivier weren’t very happy about that. Plus, she’s fucking insane. But neither am I team Gabriel. I tend to think every single one of them is shady and nutty as hell, but there are two sides to every story. Actually, with these people, there are three – Halle’s, Gabriel’s and the Truth. We’ll see what happens over the next couple of days.
