Chris Brown deleted his Twitter account late last night after getting into a tweet war with a Chelsea Handler wannabe comedienne named Jenny Johnson. You have to understand first of all that Jenny hates Chris Brown. Ever since he beat up Rihanna two years ago, she’s routinely tweeted digs at him. But then Chris tweeted, “I look old as (blank)! I’m only 23…” and she responded with, “I know! Being a worthless piece of (blank) can really age a person.” That did it. Chris fired back something vulgar involving sucking and she responded by correcting his spelling. It was ugly.

Gabriel Aubrey recently won a court battle, preventing Halle Berry from taking their daughter and moving to France. And when Gabriel was dropping off Nahla at her mom’s house on Thanksgiving Day, Halle’s fiance Olivier Martinez walked up to Gabriel and said something like, “We have to move on.” Words were exchanged and things got pretty heated. Gabriel allegedly shoved Olivier, and that’s when Olivier retaliated with his fists. Unbeknownst to Gabriel, Olivier was a boxer back in the day. Olivier’s fist was pretty swollen from pummeling Gabriel’s face. Gabriel’s face is a mess and he broke some ribs. And believe it or not, Olivier placed Gabriel under citizen’s arrest until the police got there. They ended up arresting Gabriel for misdemeanor battery but Gabriel says once officers see the security footage, they’ll know that he was the victim here. Meantime, a judge issued a temporary restraining order, preventing Gabriel from coming within 100 yards of Halle, Olivier and his daughter. Halle is going to go to court and ask the judge to make that restraining order permanent.
