Gabriel Aubry definitely did not win his Thanksgiving Day fight with Halle Berry's current boyfriend Olivier Martinez, that's for sure. Though early reports suggested a pretty equal battle - with Aubry said to have landed a couple of blows before the Frenchman pinned him to the floor - the police photographs taken after the brawl suggest a whole different story.
Aubry, 37, the father of Berry's 4-year-old daughter Nahla, has been granted a restraining order against Martinez after claiming the actor threatened him outside Nahla's school. The order forbids the actor from going within 100 yards of Aubry, his home, his workplace or his daughter's school until a court hearing on December 17, 2012. The two men began fighting outside Berry's home after the male supermodel had dropped off Nahla. He was later taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with fractured ribs and bruising to his face, reports the Associated Press. Aubry claims Martinez was the aggressor in the battle, punching and kicking him in the driveway of Berry's home while shouting "You cost us $3 million!" (a reference to a recent court case regarding Nahla). Images of Aubry obtained by TMZ.com appear to corroborate his story, showing the model's serious facial injuries. His bruised and swollen left eye is complete shut, while his right eye is similarly bruised and cut. "Halle hasn't had a perfect string of relationships. She's dealt with domestic issues in the past," said Joey Bartolomeo of People magazine, "It's just sad to see this whole situation turn violent. Everyone is just hoping they can come to terms with this and get along because, obviously, there's a child involved in this.When you see the pictures, it was clear this was not just a small altercation."
Halle Berry's representative is yet to comment on the altercation, while recent snaps of Martinez show him with bruising and cuts on his knuckles.
