Halle Berry is seeking an extension to a protective order that requires ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry to stay at least 100 yards away from her, their daughter Nahla, and fiance Olivier Martinez following an explosive brawl between the two men on Thanksgiving morning. The scuffle began after Martinez reportedly told Aubry that they needed “to move on.” He was most likely referring to the ongoing custody battle between Berry and her former beau.
