Last week Halle Berry's fiancee (Olivier Martinez) and ex-partner (Gabriel Aubry), the father of her daughter Nahla, had a massive fight which left both men in hospital, and briefly in jail. The following day it was reported that Halle had been granted an emergency order to keep Aubry away from Halle, Nahla and Martinez. However, now Aubry has had the chance to defend himself, paint his own picture of events, and has in fact also taken out a restraining order against Martinez, according to TMZ.

The site reports that, apparently, the day before the fight when both men were at Nahla's school for her play, Martinez had whispered an unnerving message to Aubry. "I wish I could beat the s**t out of you right now. You're lucky we're in a school right now. We're going to take Nahla right now and you're not going to follow us." Apparently, this intent was followed up the following day when Aubry was dropping Nahla off with Berry, as Martinez allegedly jumped on Aubry, and beat him to the ground.

The cause of the attack, according to Aubry, is that Martinez was furious about it costing $3m in legal fees trying to get full custody of Nahla, only for the case to fail and for there to be a 50/50 shared custody of their daughter. Berry and Martinez had tried to get full custody in order to relocate to Paris, a failed venture. Aubry's injuries inflicted by Martinez have been described as 'brutal'. While all of this goes on, Nahla is hopefully being kept unaware. The irony is that she's loved by three parents rather than just two, all of whom have a very strange way of showing it.
