Berry’s ex-beau hit with battery charge
LOS ANGELES - Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry was arrested after he and the Oscar-winning actress’ current boyfriend got into a fight at her California home, police said.
Aubry, 37, was booked Thursday for investigation of a battery, a misdemeanor, and released on $20,000 bail, according to online jail records. He’s scheduled to appear in court Dec. 13.
Aubry came to Berry’s house Thursday morning, and police responded to a report of an assault, said Los Angeles Police Officer Julie Boyer. Aubry was injured and taken to a hospital, where he was treated and released.
E-mails sent to Berry’s publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan, and Aubry’s family law attorney, Gary Fishbein, were not immediately returned.
Berry and Aubry have been involved in a custody dispute involving their 4-year-old daughter, Nahla. The proceedings were sealed because the two are not married.
Berry has been dating French actor Olivier Martinez, and he said earlier this year that they are engaged.
