Halle Berry’s ex-boyfriend claims her fiancé threatened to kill him during a confrontation that left him with a broken rib, bruised face, and under arrest.
Gabriel Aubry’s claims are included in court filings that led a judge to grant a restraining order against actor Olivier Martinez, who is engaged to the actress.
Aubry, 37, was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanour battery after his confrontation with Martinez, but he states in civil court filings that he was not the aggressor and that he was threatened and attacked without provocation.
Martinez told police that Aubry had attacked first. A representative for Martinez could not be immediately reached for comment.
Aubry’s filing claims Martinez threatened him the day before the fight at an event at his daughter’s school that he and the actors attended.
Aubry, a model, has a 4-year-old daughter with Berry and the former couple have been engaged in a lengthy custody battle.
The proceedings have been confidential, but Aubry states a major aspect of the case was Berry’s wish to move to Paris and take her daughter with her.
The request was denied on Nov 9, Berry’s court filings state, and Aubry has joint custody of the girl.
Aubry claims Martinez told him “You cost us $3m”, while he was punched and kicked him in the driveway of Berry’s home.
Aubry had gone to the home to allow his daughter to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with her mother, the filings state. Aubry claims Martinez threatened to kill him if Aubry did not move to Paris.
Berry was not in the driveway during the confrontation and neither was their daughter, the documents state.

MYTHS are the stories that groups tell themselves: the beautiful lies that allow life go on. This is a week of great myth making. In the death and interment of Nelson Mandela we are witnessing modern myth being made in front of our eyes. But myths can be pernicious and evil — corroding life as well as enhancing it.
