Gabriel Aubry's Face Bruised and Beat Up
It's pretty clear who got the worst of the brutal Thanksgiving Day fight outside Halle Berry's house -- Gabriel Aubry is a swollen, bruised mess after Halle's fiance Olivier Martinez rocked him in the face.

Gabriel was photographed Friday in L.A., a day after his violent showdown with Olivier put him in the hospital with a broken rib and serious face contusions -- including one NASTY swollen shiner.

Olivier clearly got the better of the fight, but still screwed up his hand and his neck.

TMZ broke the story ... Gabriel was arrested for battery after allegedly attacking Olivier at Halle's house.

After Gabriel allegedly pushed and struck Olivier in the shoulder, Halle's fiance cold-cocked her baby daddy in the face. There are conflicting accounts as to whether Gabriel was rendered unconscious.

As we reported, a judge issued an emergency protective order against Gabriel, requiring him to stay 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and Nahla.

I agree with others who suspect that Gabriel was set up in this case. And now Halle B. gets "armed guards." Really, Halle? Oh, please.... Such dramatic Hollywood histrionics. TMZ's Harvey is probably peein' all over his britches right now about this whole thing!

I'm convinced this was a SET UP! Any judge who sees this in front of him will ask Halle Berry : Why on God's green earth was Olivier even around when Nayla was dropped off??? He had NO business since there is a KNOWN history of problems between the two... Halle wants to make a judge think Gabriel Aubry has gone off the reservation and can't be trusted around his own daughter. I think that Gabriel Aubry should turn the tables and say it was a set up and say how could anyone trust that a child can be in the presence of Halle and her ridiculous fiance who most definitely needs anger control counseling and ASAP!

My Daddy always said... Don't start something you can't finish." Looks like Aubry thought he could bluff and bully Olivier, and got stuffed. Aubry has a mean temper, do***ented fact. Next time he will come with a gun. He seriously needs anger management because IF he was provoked, it doesn't take much. Reportedly, Olivier said in French. "We need to move on." There is a big difference between Parisian French and Quebecois. There is only one letter difference between We and You, in either French. Nous = we. Vous = You. Taunt or misunderstanding he had no business pushing and taking a swing at the smaller man, because as we see... he started something, he couldn't finish.

It's too bad he created that beautiful innocent child with her. She's crazy and he's crazy. I'm sure Olivier Martinez is crazy too because apparently to be with Halle you have to get on board the crazy train. My heart aches for that innocent little life these crazies are using as a pawn for their own twisted emotions.

I agree with those saying this thing looks like a set up. If Gabriel threw the first punch, he was probably egged on by Olivier who really shouldn't have even been out there in the first place as it is not his place to get involved with the custody visitations. Halle herself or a nanny, housekeeper, etc. should have gone out to the driveway to collect Nahla. With Gabriel taking the first swing, that gave Olivier to right to beat the sh!t out of him and claim self defense. Now Halle can use this incident against Gabriel and try to take visitation rights away from him altogether. They have won this round, but unfortunately, the real loser is Nahla. Gabriel was dumb to play into this trap, as it threatens his relationship with his daugher which they both seem to enjoy, but I can imagine how those two can get a person riled up. Olivier seems like a total douche, I mean just look at the guy and Halle has proven herself to be a self serving b!tch. On another site the commenters where saying that Olivier goes from one rich, successful woman to another, just using them and moving on. Well, I couldn't think of a better woman for this to happen to than Halle.

If she's so anti-abuse, she needs to dump the current boyfriend for over retaliating against the ex. That will tell us where she's at in this. If not, looks like a setup to get custody.

Berry is a liar and set him up. She is a sneak and thinks just because she got away with hit and run that she can play the system. No, we see right through you Berry and so will the judge.

Straight up BS....why was Oliver in Gabriel's space anyway? Halle should have that in check, her man shouldn't be involved in her Custody battle.

There are reports that there is a surveillance video. I find it hard to believe that Gabriel was not provoked. (This reminds me of Zidaine's famous head butt.) I also wonder why Olivier did not also get arrested given the extent of Gabriel's injuries.

Violence is never the answer..... Regardless he's the father of Nahla. This whole story is horrible, Halle and Gabriel should both be adults for the sake of their daughter. Maybe the judge needs to step in since these two idiots aren't doing so.

When Olivier claims Gabriel started it, by that he probably means Gabriel shoved him, grabbed his shoulders or waved his fist about so he "defended himself" by going after the guy like a wild animal. Yeah, whatever frog.

Everyone keeps saying that "we need to move on" means " move on for the future"

For me, the first thing I thought of, was

I thought Olivier ment, " We have Nahla, get the hell off the property.... now."

That's just me.

Gabriel Aubry should sue the crap out of Olivier Martinez for this. Martinez started the fight. If Martinez is french, why can't he be deported for this. Halle should lose custody of Nahla for this planned set up. What a bitter, evil person she is.

Nahla should not be around Martinez. He's too violent.
