Halle Berry's Fiance and Ex-Boyfriend Got Into a Brawl In Her Driveway On Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is SUPPOSED to be the time for passive-aggressive fights . . . not ACTUAL fights. Totally different story at HALLE BERRY'S house.
--On Thanksgiving morning, Halle's ex-boyfriend, GABRIEL AUBRY, was at her house in West Hollywood, California to give Halle their four-year-old daughter Nahla for the weekend.
--He started arguing with Halle's current fiancé, OLIVIER MARTINEZ, in the driveway . . . and then it got VIOLENT. According to the police, Gabriel took a swing at Olivier.
--He probably did NOT know that Olivier's father was a professional boxer and Olivier used to do some competitive boxing himself. So Olivier easily took him down and ended up landing a few good shots to Gabriel's face and body.
--Gabriel went to the hospital with a broken rib, some bruises on his face, and a possible head injury. Olivier also went to the SAME hospital with a possible broken hand and some neck injuries.
--They were treated down the hall from each other, but nothing went down at the hospital.
--Gabriel was arrested for misdemeanor battery. He claims Olivier started the fight and if the cops look at the footage from Halle's security tapes they'll see HE was the victim.
--Halle rushed Nahla into the house before the fighting started, so both of them missed the violence.
--A judge granted a temporary protective order against Gabriel, which requires him to stay 100 yards away from Halle, their daughter, and Olivier. That expires tomorrow, and Halle is looking for an indefinite extension.
--Halle and Gabriel have been in a custody battle for Nahla ever since they broke up in April of 2010. Halle has been engaged to Olivier for about a year.
Lindsay Lohan Just Got $100,000 to Pay Off Some of Her Tax Debt From . . . Charlie Sheen?
CHARLIE SHEEN just gave LINDSAY LOHAN a check for $100,000 to pay off part of her IRS tax debt. It's not clear if it's a loan or a present. But what IS clear is that he sent it, she cashed it, and it went straight to the IRS.
--Charlie and Lindsay became friends while they were filming cameos for "Scary Movie 5" in September. (--The movie is set to come out in April.)
--Lindsay owes the government $233,904 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2010, so Charlie just knocked out about half of that debt. Lindsay is set to make $2 MILLION this year so she SHOULD be able to pay off the rest . . . but who knows.
Rihanna Tweets a Photo of Chris Brown Shirtless In Bed . . . On "Simpsons" Sheets
We've gotten past the point of sighing over RIHANNA taking back CHRIS BROWN. But at least we can still be upset over Chris Brown dragging the good name of BART SIMPSON through the mud.
--On Saturday, Rihanna tweeted a photo of Chris Brown SHIRTLESS in bed . . . on top of a "Simpsons" comforter. She took the photo in Berlin, where he had a concert.
--She still claims they're not back together.
Chevy Chase Has Left "Community"
It finally happened: CHEVY CHASE has left "Community". It was a "mutual agreement" between Chevy and the producers. His departure is "effective immediately," but most of the upcoming season has already been filmed . . . with Chevy in it.
--It's unclear how sudden this move was made . . . so we don't know if his character's departure will be explained on the show, or if it'll just continue without him.
--None of this is a surprise. Chevy has trashed the show in several interviews . . . basically saying that he didn't think it was funny, he didn't like his character, and he was just doing it for the money.
--The fourth season premiere will begin airing on February 7th.
