As tensions continue to build following this month's court decision denying Halle Berry the right to relocate her daughter to France, the situation came to a head Thursday morning at the actress's California home.
A physical altercation occurred between Berry's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and fiancé Olivier Martinez as Aubry was dropping 4½-year-old Nahla off at her mother's home to celebrate Thanksgiving, TMZ reports.
According to the site, Martinez, 46, approached Aubry, 36, to speak with him and the two began to brawl. Both men were hurt – Martinez may have a broken hand and neck injuries, while Aubry suffered a broken rib, contusions to the face and a possible head injury – and are being treated at the hospital.
Aubry was reportedly place under citizen's arrest for battery and is required to stay 100 yards away from Berry, Martinez and Nahla as the result of an emergency protective order, TMZ reports.
Gabriel Aubry was arrested Thanksgiving morning after a melee at Halle Berry's house, which sent both Gabriel and Halle's fiance Olivier Martinez to the hospital ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Gabriel showed up at Halle's doorstep with Nahla for a custodial hand-off. We're told Gabriel was inside the house when Olivier walked up to him and said, "We have to move on."
According to witnesses, 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.
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.
Police were called and Olivier made a citizen's arrest for battery against Gabriel. Gabriel was escorted to the ER and, ironically, Olivier went to the same ER an hour later. The two were just down the hall from each other.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... a judge has issued an emergency protective order, which requires Gabriel to stay 100 yards awayfromHalle, Olivier,and Nahla.
And finally, there's this ... specifics about the argument between Gabrieland Olivier are sketchy because they were trash talking each other in French.
