Halle Berry's baby daddy Gabriel Aubry argues he can't work after her husband beat him up... but she STILL wants his support lowered by $12k a month
Gabriel Aubry got beaten up by actor Olivier Martinez in November 2012.
And the former Versace model is now saying that his face became so bashed in from that attack, it prevented him from landing good jobs, according to a Sunday report from TMZ.
That is his latest argument for why he feels his ex Halle Berry - with whom he had daughter Nahla, aged six - should not lower his child support payments from $16,000 a month to around $3,800 a month, which is what she has asked for.

All about the money: Gabriel Aubry (right) has argued that he was so badly beaten by Olivier Martinez that he hasn't been able to work so his ex Halle Berry (left) should not lower his child support payments from $16,000 a month to around $3,800 a month, according to TMZ
Since the attack, which happened around the Thanksgiving holiday nearly two years ago, he has only been able to get three gigs, he argues.
But TMZ noted the former Bond girl believes the French-Canadian model has 'stopped working' due to the money she has been giving him.
She argued what he has done is 'an abuse of the system.' She has expressed her desire for him to get a job.

She said, 'There is no case, no law, no logic that says a healthy, active man gets to simply live off child support that the wealthier mother earns.'
Halle's lawyer, Steve Kolodny said that Gabriel uses monthly child support for his own needs including $740 a month for fitness, $940 for clothing, $700 for his health insurance, $1,975 for car expenses and $1,100 in furniture and electronics.
