Are the tables starting to turn on the Gabriel Aubry / Olivier Martinez Thanksgiving bust-up story? Until now, it was widely believed that Aubry was at the cause of the violent scuffle, which took place at Halle Berry’s place (Martinez is her fiancée) when Aubry (her ex) dropped off Nahla (their daughter). Yesterday (November 26, 2012), photos emerged of Gabriel sporting a black eye, but sympathy for the actor was limited.
New York Daily News, however, have now reported that all may not be as it seems. According to their report, published yesterday it was Martinez that threw the first punch, after accusing Aubry of costing him & Halle $3 million. That lost sum was due to a court case filed by Berry and Martinez, in a bid to take Nahla to live with them in France. Aubry opposed the move and was successful in getting the judge to reject the proposal after a 19 day trial in September. Repotrtedly, Martinez said to Aubry in the scuffle. “When you see the judge, you’re going to tell him you’re going to Paris or I’m going to kill you. You're going to Paris, you're going to get your $20 grand a month in child support. I’m not just some f---ing actor. You don’t know me.”
Martinez placed Aubry under citizen’s arrest and he was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery, before being released on bail. However, Aubry begged police to check the CCTV cameras, though NYDN report that the cameras had been moved, so it wasn’t caught on tape. Aubry has now filed a restraining order against Martinez. So perhaps it’s not all as clear cut as we thought.
