Monster's brawl: Halle Berry's ex in punch-up
Published 24/11/2012 | 05:00
HALLE Berry's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry has been arrested on suspicion of assault after he and the Oscar-winning actress's current boyfriend got into a fight at her California home. Mr Aubry (37) was detained at Berry's house for investigation of assault and released on bail of $20,000 (€15,415).
He is scheduled to appear in court on December 13. Berry, who is dating the French actor Olivier Martinez, is involved in a custody dispute with Mr Aubry involving their daughter, Nahla (4).
Mr Aubry was visiting the actress's Hollywood Hills home when he allegedly got into an altercation with her current fiance, Martinez. Mr Aubry was injured in the altercation and was taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.
The custody battle proceedings are in camera, because the former couple are not married. Both appeared in the case as recently as November 9, but neither side commented on the hearing's outcome.
Martinez revealed earlier this year that the couple are engaged.
Berry shares a unique distinction with Kim Basinger, in that they are the only "Bond girls" to win Oscars. She also became the first black actress to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, for 'Monster's Ball'.
