Actress Halle Berry is trying to sell her Hollywood Hills West house. The home's motor court was the site of a Thanksgiving Day altercation between her former boyfriend Gabriel Aubry and actor Olivier Martinez that landed both men in the hospital.


The home is being shopped off the Multiple Listing Service as a pocket listing for $15 million, area real estate agents confirmed.

Halle bought the house in 2005 from former "Malcolm in the Middle" star Frankie Muniz for nearly $6 million, according to Times archives. The five-bedroom house has 5,900 square feet of living space and sits on more than a half acre with a 1,400-square-foot guest house, a swimming pool and spa.

She and Aubry are in the midst of a heated custody battle.

Berry, 46, has starred in the "X-Men" movies and "Die Another Day" (2002). The former model starred this year in the film "Dark Tide."
