Olivier Martinez 'involved in airport brawl'

Olivier Martinez has allegedly been accused of battery following a scuffle at an airport.

The French actor is married to Halle Berry and has 15-month-old son Maceo with the actress, while she is also mother to six-year-old daughter Nahla.

Both children were with the couple at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX yesterday. According to TMZ Olivier was uncomfortable with the amount of photographers at the Los Angeles airport and felt they were crowding the family.

The site claims there was a fracas, which allegedly saw someone who works at the establishment pushed over. It's reported the person fell after Olivier, 48, pushed an empty car seat at him.

The unnamed worker is said to have been taken to hospital after suffering pains in his abdomen and it's alleged he has filed a complaint of battery.

Olivier, his 48-year-old wife and their kids were flying out from Los Angeles at the time of the incident.

According to Gossip Cop, it's "believed" that the unnamed alleged victim was also taking photographs of the family.

Olivier and Halle have been vocal about how much they want to keep their children out of the limelight. They have even considered moving to France, where paparazzi laws are much stricter, in the past, and they are firm supporters of the No Kids Policy - which sees websites agree not to use images of celebrities' children.

Halle also testified on behalf of a bill to stop paparazzi getting too close to kids in 2013 and later spoke of her delight that it was passed into law.

"I started this fight with a great deal of hope and a bit of uncertainty so I cannot express my immense gratitude that Governor Brown [who signed it into law] has recognised, and acted to remedy, the plight of children who are tormented because of the identity or prominence of their parents," she said. "On behalf of my children, it is my hope that this is the beginning of the end for those overly aggressive paparazzi whose outrageous conduct has caused so much trauma and emotional distress."
