1. HALLE & GABRIEL SPLIT
After four years together, Halle Berry and French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry split in early 2010. The couple, who never wed, dedicate themselves to co-parenting their then 2-year-old daughter Nahla – Aubry says her "happiness and well-being are the most important thing for both of us" – and, for months after the breakup, they seem amicable as they appear together around the world with their child.

4. COURT DEFEAT
Aubry, who works primarily in Los Angeles, objects to Berry's bid to go to France with their daughter, and both sides are at war in court. After several closed-door hearings, a judge reportedly issues a stinging blow to the actress, ruling in November that she may not make a permanent move overseas.

5. OLIVIER VS. GABRIEL
Just weeks after the court defeat, tensions erupt over the Thanksgiving holiday, with Martinez and Aubry brawling outside Berry's Los Angeles home as Aubry drops off Nahla. Both men are treated at the hospital – Martinez for hand and neck injuries, Aubry for a broken rib and facial injuries – and Aubry is booked for investigation of battery and is slapped with an emergency protective order keeping him 100 yards away from Berry and Nahla. Days later, Berry and Aubry reach a truce in court.
