When first reports of the altercation between Gabriel Aubry and Olivier Martinez came out, sources said Gabriel instigated the fight but Olivier got the better of him. Now Gabriel describes an entirely different chain of events. One in which Olivier harassed and abused him without provocation. Which is a good story because he looks like hell.
In a declaration filed by Gabriel’s lawyer, Shawn Holley, the day before Thanksgiving, Gabriel was taking Nahla to her school play when Olivier and Halle showed up. Olivier went to Gabriel and whispered in his ear in French, “I wish I could beat the s**t out of you right now. You’re lucky we’re in a school right now. We’re going to take Nahla right now and you’re not going to follow us.”
The day after, Gabriel took Nahla to Halle’s house at around 10 AM. Usually Gabriel would hand Nahla to the nanny but he says that day Olivier came out the front and told him, “We need to talk.” When Gabriel went to close his car door, Olivier jumped off the stairs, knocked Gabriel to the ground and started beating him while screaming that Gabriel cost them $3 million in their failed custody battle to move Nahla to Paris.
As Olivier continued kicking his ass and, at one point, slamming his head into the concrete driveway, he screamed that they were going to move to Paris and that Gabriel had better move there or he would kill him.
Gabriel then claims Olivier told him he called the cops and that when they showed up, “you’re going to tell them that you’re the one who attacked me or I’m going to kill you.”
However, law enforcement sources say Gabriel didn’t mention any of this when the police spoke to him afterward.
Gabriel’s lawyer did include photos of his injuries in the declaration and it looks like he went 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. By contrast, Olivier went to Cedars-Sinai to check on his hand and he looked like he just came from a spa. I’m not saying Gabriel’s lying because I have no idea what is and isn’t true, but if I were him, I’d say I got jumped too. By 5 men. All weighing 225lbs each. And they were ninjas. Freaking ninjas!
The only way this could be any worse for Gabriel is if after Olivier finished beating him he smirked, “You ain’t pretty no mo’.”
