According to reports, Olivier and Gabriel were embroiled in a physical and verbal fight yesterday as Gabriel dropped off Nahla to spend Thanksgiving with her mother. Olivier is said to have tried to speak to Gabriel about he and Halle’s ongoing custody battle, but Gabriel didn’t want to hear any of it.
After Olivier told him, “We have to move on,” Gabriel apparently hit the actor and the two were quite rough and tumble. Both Gabriel and Olivier were taken to Cedars Sinai Medical Center, but while Olivier was released and went on to spend Thanksgiving with Halle and her family–as seen in the gallery–Gabriel was taken to prison. Wanna know the best part of the fight?
Apparently, Gabriel and Olivier started trash-talking each other in French. I mean, I know the fight was awful, especially in front of Nahla, but come on, two super hot dudes speaking French and punching each other? There’s gotta be a surrealist film in there somewhere.
Gabriel was released on $20,000 bail late last night and is scheduled to appear in court on December 13. He has also been ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from Halle, Olivier, and daughter Nahla. And now comes the cheesy moment when I ask, why can’t we all just get along?
