Halle Berry 'facing new investigation'

Halle Berry

Halle Berry's daughter could apparently be involved in another abuse investigation after her father was arrested following a fight last week.

Halle's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey and current fiancé Olivier Martinez started the scuffle outside the actress' Los Angeles home on Thanksgiving.

Gabriel had been dropping off his and Halle's daughter Nahla on the day, meaning she is likely to have witnessed some of the brawl.

"Detectives from the LAPD formally contacted the CPS [Child Protective Services] after Gabe's arrest, because Nahla was present when the fight occurred," a source divulged to RadarOnline.

"Nahla wasn't actually involved in the melee, and by all accounts, Halle whisked her out of the driveway as soon as the fight between Olivier and Gabe started. However, DCFS was contacted because there has been a history of allegations of physical abuse. Social workers will be interviewing Halle, Gabriel and Olivier about what happened on Thanksgiving. DCFS must ensure that Nahla's environment is safe."

Police took Gabriel in on suspicion of misdemeanour battery, after which he posted a $20,000 bond and was given a court date of December 13.

Halle is said to have taken out an emergency restraining order to keep Nahla's father away from the family.

Halle and Gabriel have had a rocky history since their split in 2010.

A bitter custody battle ensued when Halle wanted to take their child to France with her and Olivier; however it was ruled they couldn't move as Gabriel lives in Southern California.

Earlier this year, Gabriel was accused of pushing Halle's nanny while she was holding Nahla.

The case was dropped due to a lack of evidence, but it seems it will now be re-opened due to the latest incidents.

"Gabriel is extremely concerned about his arrest and the fallout this could have on Nahla. She is his entire world and is hopeful that once the truth comes out, he won't be formally charged with any crime," the source added.
