Olivier Martinez assaulted a paparazzo at LAX in front of Halle Berry & Nahla
It was a rough landing in Los Angeles for Olivier Martinez. Halle Berry’s fiancé got into a physical altercation with a paparazzo after arriving at Los Angeles International Airport Monday night from Hawaii with Berry and her daughter, Nahla, E! News has confirmed.
According to eyewitnesses, the trio were making their way out of the terminal when they were swarmed by photographers as they came down an escalator. During the ensuing mayhem, Martinez allegedly assaulted the shutterbug by kicking him in the leg and wrist.
Reportedly, the photographer later grabbed Martinez by the arm to ask to why the 47-year-old actor kicked him, a move that seemed to incense Martinez further. After the actor put Nahla in a waiting SUV, he purportedly stormed back to the photographer and kicked him again.
Berry, who had earlier told the barrage of paparazzi, “Get away, there’s a child,” then grabbed her fiancé and asked him to get in the vehicle.
Airport police and an ambulance subsequently arrived at the scene. E! News has reached out to LAX police for comment.
The incident is a double-take of sorts for Martinez: Last Thanksgiving, he got into fisticuffs with Berry’s estranged baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, who claimed that Martinez threatened to kill him if Aubry didn’t consent to allowing Berry move to France with Nahla.
Aubry eventually secured a restraining order against Martinez, but not before the dustup left him with a gnarly black eye and a broken rib.

I can't even begin to imagine what their relationship must be like. They have enough crazy between them for a whole wing in an asylum.

Oliver is definitely psycho but that paparazzo was in the wrong. He wanted a confrontation.

How do we know it wasn't stage to prove to the court Nahla would be safer in France, like Halle wants? Hmmmmm?

R5 is correct. This was staged. "There's a child" gives it all away. Did Halle's movie flop or something?

Now "there's a child?" What about the all the hundreds of times she has been photographed in the past? There are ways to keep your daughter out of the limelight.

Excuse me, but Halle went batshit at well. She should have done time in prison, and that kid should have been taken away from her crazy dangerous ass.

Why is it that people like Garner/Affleck have their kids out in public all the time without drama, but that woman steps out of her house and chaos ensues. I don't doubt that the paps are overly aggressive, but the typical scenario is that she wigs out and the boyfriend responds by punching someone - a scenario we've clearly seen before. She's nuts and he's no doubt some fool with anger issues.

Well, that would be stupid, since it indicates that anywhere Martinez is, is the opposite of safe. First he punches out the babydaddy, not a pap, and any sensible family court judge would be wondering whether a child is safe around him.

No shit. The guy not only chases tail big time but overreacts physically like he did to Aubrey, Nahla father. R12 it sounds like Nahla would be safer with anybody than the ape that Halle is fucking.

Feel sorry for the kid. Somebody really should investigate what goes on in that crazy ass household.

r19, totally agreed.
It bugs me that this bitch is getting a pass for all the shit she pulls, and Aubry got roasted.
If she wasn't a black female, she would be in jail.
And no, I'm not a misogynist, nor am I siding with Aubry because he's hot.

I don't think her race or gender has anything to do with her not being in jail, dumb shit-stirrer R21. It's the fact that she's famous. In LA, that's all you need.

Actually, r6, Halle's movie is a surprise hit. In its opening weekend, "The Call" exceeded expectations, landing at #2 with a take of $17 million, has so far made $40 million and will probably close out at $50 million. For a movie that cost only $13 million, that's a hit.

r25, I meant that the media would have accurately reported on her bullshit to the point where she would have been charged, regardless of her celebrity status.
The media largely give her a pass because she's a black female, and they don't want to be accused of racism/sexism.
Lohan gets blasted by the press all the time, and yes, she gets off, but she keeps getting charged.
Berry doesn't even get that.

I think I lost IQ points reading R28's post. Absolute shit thought-process.
Berry had a hit-and-run,. What else has she done and why are you acting like she has a rap sheet as long as Lohan?

I don't believe Halle is going to take her daughter to Paris, she recently said she'd move there when the girl turned 18.
Didn't I read that part of the deal made after her bf's beatdown was to drop her appeal of the decision to keep the girl here in the US (the prior judge had ruled against Halle and her bid to move abroad). It was part of the private deal to stop the ex-bf from filing civil charges against Olivier.

Remember she tried to snuff herself about a decade ago? She's not playing with a full deck, never has been. And I've posted before about her lies with Eric (ex-husband) that I know from a FOAF.

Has there ever been an actor who has lost his looks as quickly and alarmingly as Martinez? He was sex personified in UNFAITHFUL, but now looks like a bloated, homeless, alcoholic French fry.

The paparazzi are infamous at LAX (google Kate Moss at LAX for an example) . There are many solutions to this without the drama: she can hire bodyguards or ask for a police escort or just fucking fly into Burbank or the OC. Much bigger stars manage the paps (the ones they haven't called but are actually lying in wait like vermin and don't keep their distance) look at Angie Jo and her 40 babies walking through the airport calm as day. Halle loves the drama, Oliver loves the drama.

"If she wasn't a black female, she would be in jail."
Martinez is the one who would be in jail, if he weren't a celebrity (or celebrity-by-association) - he's the one actually delivering beat-downs! What Halle is doing wrong is to keep him around a child, and that's not actually illegal.
Why the hell do you think she should be in jail?

The best part of the video is Halle's french "Olivier, NON!"
Otherwise those paps are crazy. Why would you pull at the arm of a guy carrying a kid? I would have kicked his ass too. Those people suck.

Halle is a nutjob. That poor kid is going to be screwed up growing up with an unbalanced mama like that.
I agree it's funny -- she thinks she's still going to be with Martinez when the kid turns 18.
Or maybe not. Maybe she's found her psycho match made in heaven.

The vast majority of paparazzi pics of her are with Halle. Either Halle actively invites it, or her presence encourages it, but she has a reputation of being crazy and now Martinez is getting a reputation of being violent.
Nahla would be better off with Aubry. Let him take her and raise her out of the public eye somewhere. It's her only hope.

I think Aubrey made out fine. He gets $20,000 to "raise" a child that doesn't live with him.

I think halle and Olivier tried to set up Gabriel Aubrey during their altercation. Gabriel was arrested, but the charges were dropped. He is the one who had a black eye and bruises all over his face.
Something happened because she completely dropped the entire custody fight and the whole thing about wanting to move to France right after that when they went to court and Gabriel was granted a restraining order against Olivier. The courtroom was closed and nothing has come out about what happened. Just that the restraining order was issued and there won't be a custody fight

How is this Halle's fault? I see alot of Halle hate in here for no reason.

Halle didn't just try to snuff out her own life - she tried to take her dog with her.
Now THAT is scary and makes me worry for that child. Lord knows what she is witnessing and being taught by example. She'd be better off with Aubrey or Gabriel. Which is his first name?

And I am sure that Halle, being an attention whore desperate to revive her career, notified the paparrazzi to their location and arrival.

Halle deserves it. I worked with her, and she's always going around saying "I won an Oscar." And how she's black. I was like, "You're not really black." She was like, "When you get an Oscar than I'll take your opinion into consideration."
She calls people Oscar for no reason and when you correct her, she says "Oh dear, (not I'm sorry), I must've been thinking about my historic award."
When I pointed out to her that a person doesn't even "OWN" an Oscar, she said, "That's not true."
The bitch was so stupid she doesn't realize the Oscar is property of the Academy not yours.

R54, the baby-to-be's father is violent. He beat up his sister's father. Martinez has a history of violent behavior. Halle seems to have some mental issue of her own. How is that being overdramatic? I was raised by parents with issues. They do impact a child.
