Halle Berry's ex, Gabriel Aubry, won't face charges

Berry and fiance Oliver Martinez not pursuing the case after nasty fight.

Halle Berry is a phenomenal actress. She's had an incredibly successful career, but let's face it: Her personal life is a hot mess. In recent years, things have taken a turn for the worse. Sadly, she's been in a horrific custody battle with baby daddy Gabriel Aubry for what seems like forever and now, her fiance and Aubry duked it out over Thanksgiving.

Guess what? No matter how rich and/or beautiful you are, that doesn't guarantee you a happy home life. Halle Berry's smack in the middle of a really bad mess at the moment. What's going on?

Let's back up to Thanksgiving, shall we? On Thanksgiving Day, Halle Berry's ex, Gabriel Aubry, wound up in a huge fist fight with her fiance, actor Oliver Martinez. The situation was very, very serious and both men walked away from the brawl with injuries. This all happened as Aubry dropped off his young daughter, Nahla, with Halle. What adults do concerns me, of course, but I'm far more concerned for the well being of this poor child!

For days after the fight, it was a matter of he said and, well, he said. Each man said the other started the brawl, so who was right? According to TMZ, police believe it was, in fact, Gabriel Aubry who attacked Oliver Martinez first. And what do you do when someone starts wailing away on you? You fight back, and that's precisely what Martinez was doing. Now, it seems, Halle and Oliver have opted not to file criminal charges in the case.

Police are also said to be "concerned" about Gabriel Aubry's "ongoing anger issues." Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry have been embroiled in a nasty custody battle over Nahla, so how will this news affect the situation? According to one source, the two have "quietly and amicably reached an agreement" on the matter. Gee, you think? Given Aubry's outburst and apparent "anger issues," what judge on EARTH would award him custody of the child?

The victim in all this is really little Nahla. I can only hope that this agreement, whatever it may be, is truly amicable. The child certainly deserves better.
