    As they come through a set of double doors, the airport employee is seen holding up a cameraphone taking pictures of Martinez, before falling to the ground after he collides with the car seat.
    Martinez was standing in front of his wife Berry, who was holding their one-year-old son Maceo, and her six-year-old daughter Nahla as they walked through the crowds.
    TMZ report that amid the scuffle an airport employee was pushed to the ground, after Martinez allegedly shoved an empty car seat towards him, making him fall backwards, at around 13:45 on Sunday afternoon.

    You can't really see it from the photos here, but Ariana Grande was in that baby carrier.

    What a little asshole. I get that it'd be annoying to have your photo taken, but that's just such a dick move to push the employee over. This guy works at an airport and probably just was hoping to make some extra cash from the photos, while Halle and Olivier are what, millionaires? And he's so put over by some airport employee with a camera phone hoping for some money to survive a little better? It's rude and unprofessional of the employee, but what a fucking dick to push the guy over with the baby carrier, of all things!

    ^^^^
    seriously?
    i can't stand these assholes but i doubt the employee was hurt and really, shouldn't the airport stop their employees from harassing passengers and taking their pictures? if he got close enough to martinez that he was able to shove him with a baby carseat then he was in his personal space and way too fucking close, and that is harassment.

    ^I do think it's ridiculous and wrong for an employee to take photos of the celebrities at the airports, I def don't think it's right and it's still dickish. But to push someone over and into a wheelchair? Just way overkill and such an asshole move imo.

    If you let an employee like this take time from his job for pap shots, you are going to have to let the control tower personnel do it, too. And won't that be fun!

    The employee, whilst in the course of his employment, taking advantage of his proximity to celebs was being the asshole IMO. He was wearing the company uniform and has let them down.

    I think the employee and Martinez were BOTH being arseholes. That doesn't excuse flattening the guy with a travel seat though.

    Still I'll bet his caveman impression was right up Halle's alley. I think she's nutty enough to take it as proof of how much he luuuurves her.

    Until she decides that she's had enough of Olivier and meets a new beau and wants to move to Spain or Switzerland or wherever the guy is from because her ex is too volatile to be around her and the children because of the time he beat Nahla's father and that guy in the airport and that pap in the street and that guy who....

    Yeah, you enjoy being her champion for now, Olivier, because when the time comes she's going to use every outburst against you. Even the ones she instigated.

    And what the hell kind of camera was that TSA guy carrying? It's like a vintage 2002 point and shoot. He probably IS living hand to mouth with that piece of junk.

    I am sure he has some anger issues and she is a nutjob,BUT that asshole has no right to harass them and the kids like that.I get they are movie stars and stuff but the kids should be off limits,like it is in Europe.

    Eh, it's a public place and an airport, and it's LAX, target #1 for anyone who wants a celeb snapshot. He's not harassing them any more than the nine bajillion paps and ordinary rudeniks who take celeb pics all the time. If every star did this--?? Olivier is a violent asshole and she's a drama queen who courts attention on a regular basis. Zero sympathy.

    Highly probable the jerk employee was going to sell them, and yeah that's obnoxious, but haven't we all agreed before that this is the price you pay for all the perks and glory of being famous (and attention-seeking)? Again--they're not even in a semi-private place, they're not having a quiet lunch in a little cafe or anything like that.

    Plus, ordinary people snap celebs all the time so they can impress friends or Tweet them or whatever, so who knows. I just feel sorry for their poor kids. And what Kitty said. Halle is gonna nail Olivier to the wall when she is good and ready. He is so, so dumb.

    it's hard to tell, but in the video it doesn't really look like the employee was harassing them in a way that would justify olivier's reaction. his behavior was completely unprofessional, though. so... i'm with kitty, they're both assholes.
