Gabriel Aubry has been given an early Christmas gift. He will officially not be hit with any charges stemming from the Thanksgiving Day fight with Halle Berry's fiancé, Olivier Martinez.
In lieu of a criminal trial, Aubry will have to attend an informal hearing to discuss his fight with Martinez. As a result of settling the matter, Berry, Martinez and Aubry's attorneys will avoid a messy court battle.
Even though Aubry wound up with the bruised and bloody face, investigators believe he was the person who started the altercation which took place in front of Berry’s home. The potential charges arising from the fight stood to further complicate the court drama between Berry and Aubry over custody of their daughter, Nahla.
This past Monday, the two were back in court trying to work out a settlement on attorney fees. To make the custody proceedings easier, Aubry and Martinez have both dropped their respective charges against each other stemming from the brawl.
