UPDATE: Gabriel Aubry has been charged with battery for attacking Olivier Martinez.

The Canadian model was booked with bail set at $20,000 once he was released from hospital, after being treated for a broken rib, facial contusions and a possible head injury, following a brawl he started with his ex Halle Berry's fiance.

Andrew Smith, Commanding Officer, LAPD Media Relations and Community Affairs Group told People: "He was booked for a private persons arrest for battery. Bail is $20,000."

The fight reportedly occurred when Gabriel was dropping his and Halle's four-year-old daughter back to her mother's house on Thursday morning (22.11.12) and Olivier tried to speak to him about the ongoing custody dispute between him and Halle.

After Olivier said to Gabriel "We have to move on," the Canadian model is said to have pushed the French actor and tried to punch him in the face but Olivier blocked it and then a full blown fight broke out.

Gabriel and Halle - who split in 2010 - have been at odds ever since she tried to convince a judge to allow her to move to France with Nahla, a move which was recently blocked by the courts.

Gabriel has been ordered to stay 100 yards away from her, their daughter and Halle's fiance Olivier Martinez.

Gabriel was taken to hospital for his injuries and charged with battery, while Olivier did not need extensive medical attention for his own wounds but wants to press charges.

A source told gossip website TMZ: "Gabriel went nuts," in front of Halle and other witnesses.

The fight comes after Halle, 46, recently had her bid to move Nahla to France with her and Olivier, denied by a judge.

Gabriel, a Canadian model who lives and works in Los Angeles, had petitioned the court to stop Halle's plans as it would give him limited access to his daughter, while the 'Cloud Atlas' actress argued the privacy laws are stronger in France and would keep Nahla safe from the paparazzi.

Halle - who split with Gabriel in 2010- and Olivier, had put their wedding plans on hold while the actress focused on her custody battle.
