Lawyers For Berry, Aubry Announce Settlement Reached Following Thanksgiving Day Brawl
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Lawyers for Halle Berry and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry say they’ve reached a settlement over issues stemming from a brawl between Aubry and Berry’s boyfriend, Olivier Martinez, on Thanksgiving Day.
The attorneys stepped out of family court Thursday afternoon and held up a paper that read they had “reached an amicable agreement.” They would not elaborate on the settlement’s conditions.
Berry had a restraining order put into effect shortly after last Thursday’s fight preventing Aubry from seeing their daughter, Nahla. They currently have joint custody of the 4-year-old.
TMZ reported Aubrey, who was dropping Nahla off following a custodial visit, suffered fractured ribs and a bruised face, while Martinez injured his hand and neck.
Both men were taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but Aubry was later arrested and booked on a misdemeanor battery charge.
He was released after posting $20,000 bail.
Aubry’s lawyers claim 46-year-old Martinez instigated the fight and even threatened to kill the 37-year-old model before slamming his head on concrete.
Aubry filed a restraining order against Martinez on Monday and has been in family court this week opposing Berry’s request.
On Thursday, Aubry could be seen speeding into the courthouse, nearly running down photographers, in his Mercedes Benz. Berry was not present in court.
Berry has been trying to get the court’s permission to move to Paris with Nahla but a judge has denied that request.
