As the relationship between exes Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry continues to spiral, family members close to the Canadian model say they hope things get better between the former couple.

“He misses his daughter more than anything,” a family member, who wished to remain anonymous, told Celebuzz on Wednesday, referring to the couple’s four-year-old child, Nahla.

Berry and Aubry’s ongoing custody battle took a turn for the worse on Thanksgiving day, when Aubry got into a violent altercation with Berry’s current fiance, actor Olivier Martinez.

The fight left Aubry, 37, visibly bruised and beaten, as shown in graphic images that were posted online.

The images were especially hard to see for members of Aubry’s family, but they remain positive about his recovery.

“He’s tough. He had some bad injuries, but he’ll be okay,” the family member told Celebuzz.

“He’s badly hurt, but he will be fine,” they added.

Aubry’s family aren’t the only ones wishing for peace between the two parents.

Earlier this week, Celebuzz spoke to Berry’s mother, Judith Hawkins, who said that she wants the years-long custody battle over her granddaughter to come to an end.

“I hope that things get better, I really hope that they do; they have got to get better,” she said.

Aubry was arrested and booked on misdemeanor battery charges following his Thanksgiving-day brawl with Martinez. Berry subsequently obtained a emergency protection order against her ex, which stated Aubry couldn’t go within 100 yards of Berry, Nahla or Martinez.

For months, Aubry, Berry and Martinez have been at the center of a nasty battle over where Nahla is to be raised. Earlier this year, Berry made a plea in court to move Nahla to France, the home country of Martinez, to avoid the paparazzi.

The request was denied by a judge in November.

However, a judge ruled Tuesday that Aubry will be allowed to resume visitation with Nahla, with unspecified precautions in place to protect her safety.
