8 of 10: Halle Berry fiance fight

Halle Berry had some serious drama to tend to in 2012.

On November 22, Berry's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry was hospitalized for injuries sustained during a violent confrontation with her fiance, Olivier Martinez, near the Oscar-winning actress' Beverly Hills home on Thursday - Thanksgiving day.

That same day, Aubry was released from a Beverly Hills hospital and was taken to a police station, where he was arrested and booked on suspicion of battery.

The fight occurred as Aubry was dropping Nahla, his and Berry's 4-year-old daughter, off at the actress' home to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Los Angeles Police Department told People magazine. The child did not witness the fight, a source close to the matter told KABC Television, adding that Berry saw the beginning of it and rushed to call 911, reporting an assault with a deadly weapon. It is unclear if any were found.

An ambulance was called to Berry's house around 10 a.m. that morning and one person was transported, a L.A. City Fire Department spokesperson said. Aubry was admitted to a Beverly Hills hospital at that time, the police sources said.

On November 29, it was reported that Berry and Aubry had settled the issues that stemmed from the altercation.

Police sources had said that it appears Aubry started the fight on November 22 and that Martinez 'apparently gave back more than Gabriel dished out.' Aubry, a model, suffered serious injuries, including a black eye, and claims that Martinez was the aggressor (Photo above). However, he was the only one arrested after the altercation, on suspicion of battery.

A judge then issued an Emergency Protective Order against him. It had been set to expire and it is unclear if it is still valid. The order had dictated that he must stay at least 100 yards away from Martinez, Berry and their 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, who did not witness the fight.

That following Monday, the model fired back by obtaining a civil restraining order against Martinez.

Aubry still sported a black eye when he and his attorney appeared at a Los Angeles court on Thursday, when they reached the agreement with Berry's lawyer.

Berry and Aubry, who were together between 2005 and March 2010, have been involved in a custody battle over their child. Aubry says he wants to share custody, while the actress wants primary custody of the child. Two weeks ago, a Los Angeles denied Berry's request to move to France with her daughter.
