If there’s a story in the news, Donald Trump is sure to comment on it.
Just one day after grisly photos of Gabriel Aubry‘s black eye, bloody hands and bruised face were released, the 66-year-old billionaire weighed in on the Canadian model’s Nov. 22 altercation with Olivier Martinez, Halle Berry‘s French fiance.
“Gabriel Aubry should learn how to fight — he became a punching bag,” Trump tweeted Nov. 28. “Always drama with Halle B!”
(Coincidentally, Martinez comes from a family of boxers. “Boxing is the ‘noble art’ — that’s the name of the game,” the Dark Tide actor told Ocean Drive in October. “It’s savage, but with rules, discipline, and a high sense of morality. At times, it seems like society has no morality, so I’ve always liked boxing because it’s hard, it’s violent, but it’s honest.”)
Police were called to Berry’s L.A. home on Thanksgiving when her fiance, 46, and her ex-boyfriend, 36, came to blows after Aubry dropped off Nahla, his 4-year-old daughter with the Academy Award winner. Though it’s unclear who threw the first punch, a source tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out Friday), the exchange “got out of control.”
Both men were sent to the emergency room after police arrived on the scene. Cloud Actress star Berry, 46, obtained a restraining order against Aubry, requiring him to stay 100 yards away from her until Nov. 29. If convicted, Aubry faces up to six months in jail. A hearing is slated for Dec. 13.
Aubry filed his own emergency protective order, in addition to a court appeal asking a judge to lift the restraining order against him; the request was later denied.
The actress, meanwhile, is trying to move past the drama. “She will work this out,” a source tells Us of the actress, who has a history of volatile relationships. “All she wants is a normal family life.”
