Halle Berry steps in as Olivier Martinez 'assaults photographer at airport'


Halle Berry's fiancé Olivier Martinez reportedly got into a physical altercation with a photographer at LAX Airport on Monday night when they returned from their holiday in Hawaii.

According to E!, eyewitnesses said the couple and Halle's daughter Nahla were making their way out of the terminal when they were ambushed by paparazzi as they descended an escalator.

Martinez reportedly kicked a photographer in the leg and wrist.

In a statement, a LAX Airport spokesperson said: "Los Angeles Airport Police responded to take a report of an alleged battery that occurred at Terminal 5 prior to Airport Police arriving on scene.

"The victim (photographer), alleged he was battered but the suspect fled the location before Airport Police were notified. A battery report was taken and filed by Airport Police and is currently under investigation."

The New York Post reports that as the trio left the airport, the photographer allegedly grabbed the French actor's arm and asked why he got kicked.

After putting Nahla in the car, Martinez went back into the airport and charged at the paparazzo, kicking him again. Halle intervened and told her fiancé to stop and get back into their car.
