LOS ANGELES—Gabriel Aubry, who has a daughter with ex-girlfriend Halle Berry, said the actress’s fiance threatened to kill him if he didn’t move to Paris, according to court papers.
Aubry said he had been romantically involved with Berry between 2005 and early 2010 and the couple had a daughter, Nahla. After ending the relationship, the pair have fought over whether Berry should have primary custody or joint custody with Aubry.
They shared custody, but in 2011, Berry sought permission to move to Paris with her daughter. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark A. Juhas denied the request earlier this month, setting the stage for the latest fireworks.
Aubry and Berry’s fiance, French actor Olivier Martinez, got into a fight on Thanksgiving at the actress’s Hollywood Hills home. Aubry claims he suffered a fractured rib, bruises to the face and cuts that required stitches. He was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after police responded to a call that he had gotten into a fistfight with Martinez.
