The Academy Award-winning actress, 46, believes Aubry, 37, is a threat to their daughter Nahla after starting the fight with fiancé Olivier Martinez in front of the 4-year-old. Although a Los Angeles judge issued an emergency order of protection – requiring Aubry to stay 100 yards away from Berry, Nahla and Martinez – that order expires Tuesday, and Berry is now taking precautions against her ex.
Reportedly, Berry’s lawyers are heading to court early this week to make sure the temporary order of protection becomes more permanent. Sources say that Berry’s argument is simple: “If Gabriel can’t control himself enough to protect Nahla from emotional trauma, it’s too risky for him to be around her, Berry or Martinez.”
During their ongoing custody battle, Berry has repeatedly addressed Aubry’s anger management issues.
In another report since the Thanksgiving fight, the L.A. County Department of Child Protective Services will re-open an abuse investigation involving Nahla, Radar Online reports.
“Detectives from the LAPD formally contacted CPS after Gabe’s arrest, because Nahla was present when the fight occurred,” a source states.
The insider adds: “Nahla wasn’t actually involved in the melee, and by all accounts, Halle whisked her out of the driveway as soon as the fight between Olivier and Gabe started. However, DCFS was contacted because there has been a history of allegations of physical abuse. Social workers will be interviewing Halle, Gabriel and Olivier about what happened on Thanksgiving. DCFS must ensure that Nahla’s environment is safe.”
The day following the fight, Berry and Nahla were spotted at the Yo Gabba Gabba show in Los Angeles. Photos of Aubry and Martinez have surfaced since the brawl, showing no visible injuries for Martinez and a swollen face for Aubry.
