Halle Berry gets police escort for daughter Nahla hours after Gabriel Aubry’s fight with Olivier Martinez

Halle Berry received a police escort on Friday as she took daughter Nahla to the theatre in Downtown Los Angeles.

Halle Berry, 46, and her 4-year-old were driven to the Nokia Theatre in a black SUV, surrounded by four police on motorcycles following Thursday’s incident between Halle’s boyfriend Olivier Martinez and ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.

She looked calm as she escorted Nahla into the theatre and then carried her out accompanied by a bodyguard.

Looking low key in jeans, a black top and sandals, Halle Berry held Nahla’s hand as they made their way inside to watch a concert by children’s entertainers Yo Gabba Gabba.

Nahla looked pretty in a pink polka dot dress and purple flip flops and listened to music on bright pink headphones, while her mother held her cuddly toy.

There was no sign of Halle Berry’s French beau Olivier Martinez who had earlier been seen in a liquor store brandishing a swollen hand from Thursday’s altercation.

Olivier Martinez, 46, opted for a half-hearted disguise by wearing a cap, but was nevertheless prepared to face the photographers on his “victory walk” – after apparently coming off better than Gabriel Aubry in yesterday’s fight.

Still, Olivier Martinez’s hand appeared to have swelled some more overnight – and looked bloated and painful as he stopped by Gil Turner’s Fine Wine & Spirits in Los Angeles on Friday.

Gabriel Aubry, 37, meanwhile, was pictured being whisked out of LAPD’s Downtown jail in Los Angeles on Thursday night.

He had a contingency plan in place for the photographers, though, cowering from the flashbulbs under a blanket in the back seat of an SUV as he was driven away.

Bail Bondsman David Perez of David Perez Bail Bonds paid Gabriel Aubry’s $20,000 bail – before picking him up at around 6 p.m.

Gabriel Aubry – father of Halle Berry’s daughter Nahla – was charged with battery and taken into custody upon his discharge from hospital at around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday – where he was treated for a broken rib and bruises to the face.

His booking sheets lists him as 6ft2 and weighing 180lbs.

The pictures emerged as fresh details of the horrific fight between Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez, which was reportedly captured on security cameras, continued to unravel.

Nahla was apparently saved from witnessing the full brutality of the fight – after Halle rushed her inside the house as the two men started to face off, TMZ reports.

However, it is unclear if she did witness some of the fight.

It was initially reported the brawl happened inside Halle Berry’s house – but it is now claimed the altercation played out in the large driveway, according to the website.

After Olivier Martinez said to Gabriel Aubry: “We have to move on,” the Canadian model is said to have retaliated and pushed the French actor and tried to punch him before a full blown fight broke out.

Gabriel Aubry and Halle Berry – who split in 2010 – have been at odds ever since she tried to convince a judge to allow her to move to France with Nahla, a move which was recently blocked by the courts.

On Thursday a judge issued an emergency protective order in the wake of the melee – meaning Gabriel Aubry must stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier and Nahla.

Onlookers told TMZ the fight was “brutal”, with the website describing a blow-by-blow account of the melee.

A source said: “Olivier blocked [Gabriel Aubry’s punch] and the punch struck him in the shoulder instead.

“Gabriel then pushed Olivier to the ground, a struggle ensued, ending when Olivier pinned Gabriel to the ground.”


Olivier Martinez performed a citizen’s arrest on his love rival, before police were called to the scene and arrested Gabriel Aubry for battery.

Meanwhile, Olivier Martinez also required hospital treatment – and arrived at the Cedars Sinai Hospital around an hour after Gabriel Aubry.

The model-turned-actor was later pictured leaving the hospital, with Halle Berry and Nahla in tow, and took the wheel of the car despite sporting a swollen hand, which he may have fractured during the fight.

Meanwhile, Halle Berry was joined by a slew of other celebrity parents and their children at Friday’s show.
